Dr. Pollack called me back himself when I had a problem over the wkend! I had an acute eye problem and I wasn't even his patient yet! It was easy to get an appt but he put me in himself for the next morning! His staff is so warm..Show morefriendly and also attentive! He is super caring, attentive and extremely thorough! I am a registered nurse for 35 years and was very impressed by his credentials. However this man is a true gift to all of us who need an eye specialist! He really is a special physician because he has the complete package..The smarts and a huge heart! Thank u for taking such great care of me Dr. Pollack! If he has a downful its a good one. He takes his time with each patient and so u may have to wait a little longer while in his office. That is not an awful characteristic. That is the sign of a physician that loves what he does and gives u undidivided attention. This is what is lacking in our medical world today. Sincerely, Lillian F.
There are two parts to my experience. The wait time, as I am sure your have heard, is just long. I had an 11 am appointment and did not begin the examination process untl 1:30 or 2 or so it seemed. Once started, the examination Show moreprocess went smoothly. Danny was helpful in explaining the various tests as some were new to me. I appreciate the thoroughness of Dr. Pollack's examination as I tend to be anxious about the condition of my eyes. I like that the report is dictated after the exam so that even if the terminology is unfamiliar, you can ask questions and that also prepares you for meetings with additional doctors. So it was a wait but well worth it.
