I have been working with Dr. Pollock for several months and I am seeing measurable results, a real breakthrough since I have worked with various therapists for over a decade with unreliable progress. Dr. Pollock is exceptional not only as an astute clinical psychologist but also as a true professional. I have a difficult work schedule and Dr. Pollock regularly works with me to find a suitable time for each week. I am grateful for every session I have with Dr. Pollock and enthusiastically recommend him to others.

I worked with Dr. Pollock for two months and had a fantastic experience. I was referred to him by another leading psychologist in the field of performance anxiety. Dr. Pollock, through all of his reassurances, psychological probing, and blunt honesty, helped get me (a) proper medications and (b) the confidence I needed to become less anxious. I'd recommend Dr. Pollock to anyone dealing with anxiety and looking to overcome it quicker than they could have imagined.

Dr. Pollock is the most competent psychologist in his expertise. My wife and I went to therapy with him for about a year and he helped tremendously. Extremely empathetic and sensitive. My wife has a history of sexual trauma, his understanding and sensitivity was matched by no other and we can't be thankful enough.

I have been seeing Dr. Pollock for 3 years. I came to him for help with difficulties in my relationships and problems stemming from a mood disorder. He is an empathic and caring therapist with broad knowledge, experience and a deep understanding of the human condition. Of the many therapists I have seen during my lifetime, he has been the most helpful and effective. I have made tremendous progress in his care.

I was referred to Dr. Pollock a few years ago. He is a very professional and empathic doctor who goes above and beyond to help. He has helped me tremendously with anxiety and discovering the underlying root causes. He has great insight. Dr. Pollock is one of the few doctors willing to take the time to look at the big picture. I'll feel fortunate to be under his care.

Dr. Pollock has helped me navigate through a myriad of issues that have affected my mental health. I have improved over the course of the last year due to his insights and empathetic nature. I recommend him to anyone looking to parse through the stumbling blocks that block oneself from discovering her/his authentic self.

I first began seeing Dr. Pollock many years ago, and he was able to bring me to a level of emotional health I'd never dreamed possible. Recently I've had some challenges and have again reached out to him, as I know he can guide me through this period. He is an amazing, insightful psychologist, is up to date on all current research in his field/specialties, and is a contributing author to prominent medical books. He has taught psychiatrists in world-class medical hospitals how to be better psychologists. I can't imagine where my life would be without his guidance, patience and knowledge.
