Its experiences like this that turn me off from Zocdoc completely. If you see an open Zocdoc appointment, DO NOT TAKE IT. I was taking an appointment during lunch, I took an $25 uber down there. I walked into a PACKED waiting room, asked if all 10 of these people were in front of me, was told yes. I said 'this is ridiculous' - and the receptionist said to generally allow 2 hours at their office. TWO HOURS. She tried to tell me thats how long the procedure takes.... except I've had it done before, in less than 15 minutes. Its completely UNETHICAL to book an appointment for someone and make them wait two hours to be seen.
Efficient, informative visit. Love this doctor and his staff!
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. Hopefully he 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 expect a 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 a time 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.
Very talented retina specialist. Highly recommended. Not an alarmist and very knowledgeable.
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 traveling and 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.
Excellent Doctor ! Very. Professional ! Very nice person !!
Nice doctor , very patient and very reassuring.
Excellent docter. Professional and took his time to explain everything. Highly recommend.
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 moving on 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 a Fantastic Doctor, who knows his field of work Extraordinarily well. I have been a patient of his 4 or 5 Years now. He is also funny and very Pleasant at all times. And if you're not focusing your eye correctly, which I seem to have a problem doing, he goes Elementary on you. He is extremely Patient and honest with you. His Mannerism is the same at each visit.
Dr Pollack is a onderful Doctor, he helped me quite a lot, and besides his knowledge he is very considerate of his patients. I highly recommend him.
Amazing doctor. When everyone gave up on my Mom's sight he believed he can do it and he did it. Thank G-d.
Although the wait is long its well worth the wait.
Dr. Pollack really took the time to figure out what was causing my symptoms.
Fantastic physician and person
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 questions in detail. He is also very nice and caring. The staff is also very nice and a pleasure to deal with.
My ophthalmologist was away on a long vacation and Dr Pollack was very kind to see me on short notice. Everyone in his office was extremely helpful.
I got lost and I was 30 minutes late. Dr. Pollack was able to squeeze me and perform the test efficiently. He gave me the hard truth pleasantly and his personality calmed my anxiety.
He's great. He know his stuff, very professional! I'm going back!
Very detailed and informative. He was very thorough and answered all of my questions and concerns
I would highly recommend Dr. Pollack. He is very knowledgeble, patience and understanding. I will definitely see him again. Thanks doc.

He is a caring and brilliant retina specialist with a vast knowledge of medicine. He went the extra mile to personally call me the next day to check up on me.. What doctor ever does that. He is amazing
