My husband and I have our annual check ups with Dr. Pollak for about 15 years. Before that we were seeing his father. Dr. Pollak is a very kind, attentive, and detailed doctor that listens to what you are saying. He takes his time and reviews all your past records. The office has the ability to perform many tests right there, so deletes the need to drive in traffic from place to place,& waiting days for results. Caught my husbands heart problem & saved his life. Staff, Connie & Nina are GREAT!

I was in atrial fib. for years and Dr. Wayne Pollak suggested a procedure be done to my heart. Dr.D. Benhayon performed the procedure (EP) on 10/01/15 a little over a year ago. The A Fib has not reoccurred since and I feel great.
