He was very professional, funny and considerate. Knowledgeable and made me feel at ease. Took his time and will be missed since leaving Woodhaven.
Friendly staff. Immediate treatment. And a Doctor that doesn't jump to a diagnosis within 2 minutes...... Don't think about it. Just go see Dr. Pollack.

Doctor Pollack is one of the best nicest professionals I have oncountered. He is gracious, gentle , nice and he makes you comfortable. I really had a good visit
Very nice person and great doctor.
He was nice and knowledgeable.
Dr. Pollack was wonderful. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family. He was very thorough, friendly and explain everything very well.
I have the simplest of tastes; I'm always satisfied withe the best and Dr. Pollack is the best.
I arrived 5 minutes before the appointment and I did not have to fill in the usual forms since Zocdoc transferred my personal medical data to the doctor's office beforehand. So I checked in, signed 3 forms and then went straight to the doctor's office. He diagnosed an achilles tendinities and took an X-ray to make sure I had no calcification at the heel, and explained my everything by showing me the X-ray. He explained the reason for the pain (tight tendon), how to cure the pain (rest, not necessarily stretch or do physical therapy), and provided some pads to put in the shoes to elevate the heel. I even decided to make custom orthotics sole as I am a runner. I highly recommend Dr Pollack, as he really takes care, and take the time to explain what to do.
Great service, would recommend to anyone
I brought my two children to see Dr. Pollack. He was so reassuring and made them feel comfortable. They laughed and laughed at his corny jokes! How refreshing to see a doctor who is so down to Earth. I highly recommend Dr. Pollack to children and to adults!!
Dr. Pollack was very patient and took time explaining things to me.
Great doctor. Explained the injury completely and recommended how to take care. Very nice experience.
I highly recommend Dr. Pollack. Firstly, his staff is extremely helpful and nice. I had an insurance issue, and they called my insurance directly to try and figure it out rather than just bill me. Secondly, Dr. Pollack is one of the best Dr.'s I've ever seen. He's extremely warm and caring, and he is extremely knowledgeable. He explains everything very clearly, and never rushes through the appointment. If you need a foot Dr. who cares and will get to the problem quickly, call Dr. Pollack.
Dr Pollack was very kind, he answer all the question and treat ne very well but the only concern is that he was picking instrument out of a metal box with a liquid and i will appreciate better if he would explain to me what kind of solutions was in that box. But over all he's a great dr.
Very friendly and knowledgeable
Very professional but very easy going, putting you at ease. Took the time to answer questions and explain everything in simple terms. Very gentle touch. Educated me on the possible cause of my problem. Treated my problem essentially painlessly. My toe nails never looked as good as they did when my appointment ended.
As always Dr Pollack doesn't disappoint. He doesn't rush you and takes his time explaining all the procedures.
I didn't want to believe my foot was broken. I searched doctor after doctor for someone I can go to continuously. JACKPOT! My foot has twisted every two years or so and I am sick of it. Thanks to Dr. Pollack I can put all the worry on him! I hope he straps up for the ride because I am not going anywhere!! *cheez*
Very professional and helpful. I would definitely use him again.
Dr Pollack is an excellent surgeon. He makes you feel at ease, answers every question and does not rush you. He has excellent bedside manners. I recommend him highly.
I severed my right foot HCL tendon on Christmas Day 2016. The doctor on duty advised that I needed a specialist and Dr. Pollack was called in. He performed emergency surgery to repair the tendon. His manner and professionalism was amazing throughout the entire procedure. He kept me at ease during a stressful time. He took the utmost care to make sure I was comfortable and that the repair and incision were perfect. The surgery to repair the tendon went very well and I am so happy with the results. Dr. Pollack also made himself available post surgery with any questions I had as I started healing. I am continuing care with Dr. Pollack with office visits and again the experience is excellent. If you drop a knife on your foot, you want Dr. Pollack to be there!
Great sense of humor. Gave immediate solution to my problem both short and long term. Gentle and straight to the point.
Dr Pollack is friendly and great with my children. He has helped my son who is 9.
Very patient and professional
Dr.Pollack is a blessing he takes good care of his patients and will not stop until you are 100%. Highly recommended
He's great! Very professional and he makes you feel comfortable
great podiatrist, caring, knowledgeable. highly recommended.
Dr. Pollack is an AMAZING doctor. I had an ankle procedure (peroneal tendon subluxation and groove deepening) done by him and am currently healing in record time. I'm extremely pleased with my experience. He answered every question I had about the surgery prior to and afterwards. I would definitely recommend him as a doctor AND surgeon.
It's very rare that i come across a doctor who is professional, caring, patient and funny. Dr. Pollack is very easygoing and soft spoken. He takes the time to explain everything to you and answer all your questions and concerns. I am confident that I will be in good hands when I have my surgery. I was so anxious at my visit, but Dr. Pollack made me laugh and I left the office smiling.
Dr Pollack diagnosed a wart on my leg when 2 other podiatrists couldnt. He is extremely knowledgeable and courteous and he was patient enough to answer all my small and silly doubts. After a minor surgical procedure he called me the next day to check on me.... that was so comforting...!!! I am confident that I am in right hands...!!
It wasnt my first time seeing the doctor but he is a very good doctor. He takes his time and expalin everything to you.
Split toe nail removal. Quite painless. He talked me through the whole process and put me at ease. He explained every step of the way it was happening. Great doctor!
Dr. Pollack is very calm and informative. He took the time to explain everything in great detail and made me feel comfortable with moving forward with my treatment. I would highly recommend him!
He is the best doctor I ever had.
Dr Pollack ,as always, is a pleasure.His manner and advice are both professional and helpful.
Dr. Pollack was so kind, comforting and knowledgable, he got right to the point with good examples and simple explanation. I'm looking forward to seeing him for the follow up of my right foot fracture in two weeks.
Very friendly- Both my parents go to him and they did not lie about how NICE he is. He cares about his patients and will explain everything to you in detail.
Extremely effective service and professional care. Dr. pollack answered all my questions , while providing professional guidelines and overall advise to improve my condition. Felt very comfortable during my first visit. Thank you!
If you need to see a real foot doctor Daniel Pollack is the only choice. I travel to Queens from Brooklyn and it is worth the time . Dr. Pollack is a real professional.
Excellent. Professional and friendly.
He explained to me in detail the root cause of the pain that I was experiencing, the possible treatment and my options. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and relatives.
Professional, courteous, and helpful with a very pleasant demeanor. One of the best experiences I have had with a doctor.
Amazing as always !

The doctor explained why I have the foot problems I have. He was gentle and always concerned with my comfort throughout the procedures he performed.
Dr. Pollack explains things very completely and in a way that you can understand. He is thorough and takes his time with you. I felt very comfortable with him and his knowledge.
The Doctor was very nice and very caring. He explained issues with care.
Great and caring Dr. Gives plenty of time for your visit. Will take the time to thoroughly answer all your questions. Highly recommend!
Wonderful doctor, thorough, respects the patients intelligence, made good recommendations
Dr. Pollack has the magic touch! I came to him after a traumatic experience with my toe, and he was the first person to handle the injury without causing additional, unnecessary pain. I had to get some numbing shots, which I was terrified of after having gone through them at the ER, and the pain was negligible in comparison. When you are with Dr. Pollack, you immediately get the feeling that you are in very competent hand. Cannot sing his praises enough. Highly highly recommended!
He is hysterical!!
He's amazing to say the least... Very caring and attentive, and you can tell he loves what he does. He is a great and rare being.
This doctor is pretty good. It was my second visit where I received treatment for my scar stemming from and auto accident. He is very kind and understanding. Patient and answered my questions. I did not feel rushed. Seems like a genuinely nice person. We went over my xrays and he found some things that they missed at the center that I had them done. I am very happy with him so far and I would recommend him.
My first visit went extremely well. A few more to go but I feel like it will be worth it.
I went to Dr. Pollack's office mostly because he was open on a Sunday morning, which is hard to find. I was very happy with his care. I had extreme pain in my foot and he treated me for a stress fracture. He wrapped up my foot and placed me in a boot. He was extremely professional and made a proper diagnosis. After 4 weeks I returned to his office and he did followup x-rays to confirm the fracture was healing. Indeed it was, I was back to normal shortly thereafter.
Fixed my problem perfectly!!!
Dr. Pollack treated me with professionalism while helping me to understand the treatment I needed. He is thorough, his office is efficient, and most importantly he helped my foot heal properly!
Gran profesional, la mejor comunicación y atención a mi problema ,me gustó la atención y lo recomiendo altamente, gracias
Not only was I seen right away, but he spent time with me answering my questions and treating my problems.
Dr. Pollack was amazing! He could tell as soon as he walked in what the problem was, and explained everything to me so I could understand. He then explained all the possible ways to treat me, and why he chose that specific treatment plan. He listened to all my concerns, and made me feel very comfortable. I would recommend him to everyone.
Dr Pollack made my visit very comfortable. He takes time to get to know you and throughly answers any question in which you may have. This was my first time seeing a podiatrist and I will be returning back. Great doctor. Would strongly recommend!

I was definitely pleased with my visit to Dr. Pollack. Very informative, and his bedside manner was excellent. I found my new podiatrist.
This was my initial visit with Dr Pollack. I really enjoyed his demeanor & appreciated his careful & thorough explanations of my condition & treatment options.
Dr. Pollack made me feel at ease during the minor surgery on my foot. I would highly recommend him for any foot or ankle problem.
My 5 year old son went to Dr.pollack for a gastrocnemius recession surgery. He is already walking and the improvement in his feet is amazing. He's a great doctor explains everything. He's very polite and child friendly.
I'm so glad that I found Dr. Pollack! I came to my appointment in pain, and I left pain-free!
I think my visit with Dr pollack was very professional his bedside manner was so caring and considerate he listened intently and answered so that i understood him . I'd recommend him highly.
I only have good things to say about Dr. Pollack. He he goes straight to the problem and explained to me in detail. He made me very comfortable. It's been a long time to fine a caring, understanding and professional. He is awesome......
I saw Dr Pollock about a Plantar Fasciitis problem I suffered with for months. Left the office with a cortisone shot, feeling better already. Wish I had gone to him sooner. He patiently drew a picture of the foot structure as we joked of its crudeness akin to Dr Emit Brown, explaining the cause and what can be done to prevent recurrence. Now he is following up on that aspect. Although I did have to wait a few minutes, the personalized care as I'm sure he does with his other patients was well worth it. The flexibility and efficiency of ZocDoc is an added bonus that I wish my other doctors used.
He was pleasant and very thorough
Dr. Pollack is the best foot doctor in queens. He is knowledgeable and listens to your concerns. He is always friendly, kind, patient. I just had a nail removed due to injury and he did a beautiful job. Little bleeding if any. Took his time so it can grow back properly. He calmed my nerves by talking to me during the procedure. Highly recommended this office. The receptionist is very friendly as well.
Very professional,very thorough and caring as well as gentle .Would highly reccomend Dr.Pollack!
Very caring and very gentle in removing a toenail. Even though I am on a blood thinner, the Doctor was able to do the removal with minimal bleeding. Highly recommend Dr. Pollack!!!
I was seen by the Dr. Within just a couple of minutes of entering the examining room. Dr. Pollack was very easy to speak to and listened patiently while I explained my problem. He diagnosed quickly and further explained my treatment plan. Hopefully I won't have to go back but if I do I'm sure I'll be treated in the same manner.
Dr. Pollack is amazing. I have been living with foot pain for years. I am so happy to have someone who can help me.

Great Doctor!!! He explains everything.Highly recommended.
Dr. Daniel was actually opened on a Sunday, and was over the top helpful with my "out of the blue" broken toe accident. I would have been forced to wait more than 48 hours to be seen by a specialist. Fortunately, he was opened, and he was able to successfully straighten back my right pinky toe which was broken into 2 places. If I had awaited one more day, it would have settled incorrectly. He was overwhelming nice, very informative, and even informed me of another issue on my right big toe after reviewing the xray. Best and most helpful part: I lost my Insurance ID card, so he didn't charge me a penny, and was trustworthy of me to provide my insurance ID number tomorrow.
