This has been one of my best zocdoc visits. Everything appointment-wise was on time (early in fact as I arrived early), the staff was friendly and professional, and Dr.Pollack was very nice and funny and seemed very much the expert. Ileft feeling confident in his thorough and detailed assessment.

Dr. Pollack is a bonafide professional and knows his craft. He asks questions and welcomes them, though his approach is a tad robotic. Also, I wish it didn't take two hours to see him upon each visit, for a total of 15 minutes of actual work.

Dr Pollack was great. He was very informative and thorough. He explained what he saw from my the test results. His team could have done a better job at informing me of the tests in advance. I have never had myeyes dilated in my life and when I left the office I could not fully see since my eyes were super sensitive to the sunlight. I had to hail a cab to get back to my office. I wish they would have offered me something to protect my eyes or at minimum told me to bring my own sunglasses.

Doctor Pollack was great. He really took time to explain the issues with my eye (I have drusen build up at a young age) and why he was doing certain tests. However, one of this techs was a little crass. Hopefullyhe was just having an off day, but he didn't smile or seem to care at all to be there.

Had a great experience. Dr. Pollack is very knowledgeable and friendly and immediately puts you at ease. I had been warned that appointments take a long tim with waiting in between each exam, so I expected that. They say to expecta 2 hour appointment, so I was pleasantly surprised when start to finish was only 1.5 hrs.

Dr.Pollack is a great doctor, and his staff is very professional. The only negative is the way they set the appointments. It's like they give 6-7 patients the same appointment times, and call each one of us in one at atime to do certain exams and then send us backntinwaiting room and call the next person, until they've done what heave had to with each of us. This leads to long wait times to first be called, and then long times in the office getting to the next step of he visit. Long story short be prepared to spend at least 2-3 hours in his office. Half of it in the waiting room, and half being seen. Other than that there's no other negatives about this office. It's in a beautiful building, and his office has state of the art technology.

Excellent! I am an out-of-town first time visitor from Nebraska because of Dr. Pollack good repution. The entire office visit processes from the initial appointment making, thru coordinating with the doctor's office to arrange travelingand lodging, and finally visiting Dr. Pollack for my complicate retina problems were smooth, pleasant, and rewarding. Dr. Pollack provided detailed eye tests, examination, and clear discussion of my eye problems and treatment options. I trust Dr. Pollack because of his knowledge, experience, repution, and pleasant personality.

Didn't have to wait hours to see Dr. Pollack. I was promptly examined first by Doc's assistants and later by Dr, though there were some waits between exams. IMO, he was very thorough and I am looking forward to next visit.

The Dr. is clearly knowledgeable and I'm confident in his ability to identify a problem, and am hopeful he can fix it upon my next visit. However, he isn't as inclined to discussing issues as to talking over you and movingon to the next patient. Arrive early--I went in at 4:20pm, was seen three different times, and finally left the office at 6:50pm.

Dr. Pollack is treating my chronic retinal detachment requiring very complex surgery. I have found him to be an extremely competent surgeon and my eye is recovering very well. He is very knowledgeable and always takes the time to answer questionsin detail. He is also very nice and caring. The staff is also very nice and a pleasure to deal with.
