Dr. Pollack is amazing!! I cannot say enough about him. He is the best doctor I have ever seen. On aSunday, I went in with a severely broken foot and he diagnosed an urgent need for surgery. He drove my wife and I to the hospital in NJ from his office in Queens without hesitation. Dr. Pollack then went out of the hospital and brought back a nice lunch for my wife from one of his favorite shops. (I couldn’t eat because of the pending surgery.) He performed the surgery a few hours later and it went great! Dr. Pollack is very considerate of the patient. He called and texted me frequently, even when he was travelling internationally, to check on me. When I texted Dr. Pollack in the very early morning hours about an issue, he responded immediately with helpful advice. He was always available whenever I needed him. I’m not a fan of anything medical when it involves myself. I’m a typical white coat hypertension kind of guy but I feel very comfortable whenever I see Dr. Pollack. He is very caring and gentle when it comes to treatment. It’s also great that I can get appointments on a Sunday. Dr. Pollack is a very knowledgeable and experienced practitioner. I have spoken very highly of Dr. Pollack to my friends and family whenever I get the chance. I highly recommend Dr. Pollack to anyone in need of a great podiatrist! I found Dr. Pollack on ZocDoc and chose him because of the great reviews! Dr. Pollack certainly exceeds the ratings! He is truly an exceptional doctor!

Dr. Pollack is a wonderful podiatrist. The reason for the long wait time, is he is attentive to his patients, and he wants to be as thorough as possible. He has a wonderful bedside manner, and he takes the time toexplain what he is doing. He also has a fantastic sense of humor and he put me at ease by making me laugh. The main reason I had gone into see him was one of my toes had become very red and swollen. Prior to my appointment, I had scared myself silly by envisioning all kinds of horrible reasons for this situation. Dr. Pollack was gentle and reassuring. He took the time to thoroughly examine me, and he even took a set of x-rays. It turned out that I had an ingrown toenail, which he treated. While he was taking care of it, he distracted me by making small talk. So, Dr. Pollack was wonderful at treating my simple problem, but he also treats more serious conditions. An added bonus is he has Sunday afternoon hours. So, after Mass, I was able to have a nice lunch, and then go to my appointment. Dr. Pollack is a Godsend, and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs to be treated by a podiatrist. He is a wonderful doctor and a true gentleman. God bless him!

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 straightto 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.

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 ofthe 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 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 aboutthe surgery prior to and afterwards. I would definitely recommend him as a doctor AND surgeon.
