10/11/11 5 4 5 5 The BEST pediatrician I have ever had the privilege of working with. I have 3 boys and my first (now 15) as a lil one i had concerns were brushed off by another Dr but Dr Pollock listened to me and took action. I have 1 that has a fear of needles but takes them without fuss from Dr Pollock. As every doctor in the city is overworked it is NORMAL to wait a bit. I love that when i call his nurse always has the time to figure out what i need.  Respond

19/05/11 4 4 3 4 Although I continue to take my child to him, I have in the past worried a little. As other have stated, he does sometimes seem to have a hard time understanding what I am saying, or he's not really listening very well. He speaks very quickly and I know those who think he is hard to understand. On the first visit, he came in the room around 7 AM, following the birth. He introduced himself, checked out our child, and as he left the room he kind of muttered half under his breath that she has "an abnormally small cranial circumference" and that he would have to watch that. He was gone and we were stunned. Next visit he didn't remember saying anything about cranial circumference! Since then, over the past several years, he has never led us astray, but, then, my child is healthy. We have followed his rules about juice and milk, proper rest, and taking her to the library, too. So, maybe that has made all the difference. We will take our second child to him.  Respond

14/03/11 5 5 5 5 Ver dedicated Dr. who has called us on Sunday evenings and week nights to give us the results of various tests. Very impressed that throughout our daughters visits, as soon as she was old enough to talk, he included her in the conversations. She's now 12 and for the most part the communication is between the two of them as she is much more aware of what's happening in her body.  Respond

14/10/10 2 5 3 4 Dr. Pollock seems knowledgeable and helpful. His personality is hard to gauge as sometimes he seems like he is listening and other times he sounds like he is giving me a lecture even though I have done as he suggested. My daughter, who is under 1 year old, isn't a fan as he doesn't smile and make eye contact with her before examination and so she ends up crying. But he seems to be good dr and we only have gone for regular checkups so I suppose I overlook that fact that he is not welcoming to infants  Respond

02/12/09 5 5 5 5 The BEST pediatrician I have ever had the privilege of working with. I have 5 birth children, 14 grandchildren, and 3 foster kids who I have had since birth ranging in ages from 40 yrs. to 2 yrs. I have seen and heard of a lot of doctors over the years. My kids that are still at home have been seeing Dr.Pollock for 18 yrs. Not only has he dealt with their physical ailments but also mental, psychological and behavioral problems. He has been great at referring to specialists and following up on them. He has show a high degree of knowledge, caring and compassion. Couldn't ask for a better doctor for some very high needs kids.  Respond

09/02/09 4 3 1 2 As a nurse (and a father btw), I find our appointments rushed. He is very harsh, especially if your child is crying. His immunization shot giving skills are horrible! He is like jekyll and hyde, one day his bedside manner is great, others he talks down to us. We are actively looking for another doctor.  Respond

16/06/08 2 1 2 1 Well it sounds like he has increased his skills. We almost lost our daughter as he kept telling me I was a new mom and dismissed my childs crying almost 24 hours as all in my head. After many visits to childrens, we not being notified that she was to be admitted into ICU immediatly. Explaination was that it was a long weekend. We were lucky we were in for her 3mos. shots or we may never have been told and would have lost her. 3 kidney surgeries later, we have changed dr.s but it seems it is very hard to find a good Dr. If we had of gone on his looks happy and smiles comments our child would be dead.  Respond

12/02/08 5 5 5 5 An amazing human being. This man works so many hours of the day, how does he do it? He's at the hospital 6am and in the office then at the end of the day follows up with his patients. I really respect him for what he does and how he does it. The staff is nice, I have never had to wait long, and if I did so what. He seems to be very organized and efficient.  Respond

22/10/07 5 2 4 5 Dr. Pollock is a very knowledgeable and helpful doctor. Although he rarely runs on time and the wait is often long, the wait is well worth it. People need to understand that some children need more time with him than others depending on how severe their sicknesses are. He is very thorough when it comes to ill children which I love. He also has a new receptionist now whom is very polite and helpful. She always returns phone calls and listens to concerns and he seems to be more comfortable and relaxed since she has started to work for him, for his last receptionist was very disrespectful to him and was useless and rude to patients.  Respond

08/09/07 5 5 5 5 Thank goodness for Dr. Pollock...I always know that we will come away with an answer to either of our childrens ailments and if not he will do tests right away to try and find the answer. He never brushes off a child who is ill. He is quick with appointments, but remember he is only there for one thing ...to find out what is wrong with your child...not time for chit chat. Other children and concerned parents are waiting in the next room. I am thankful we came upon Dr. Pollock or rather he came upon us after the birth of our child, asking if we would like him to be our baby' doctor....I am so glad we said yes...  Respond

30/08/07 4 5 4 5 I was really impressed with the fact that when I had my 2nd son at 2:30 in the morning, Dr. Pollock was there to see him at 6:00 am, and every morning while we were in the hospital. He can expect a bit much from parents at times but overall a good dr.  Respond

20/04/07 2 1 2 Did not diagnose my 1 year olds serious condition even after repeated visits. Did not believe my wife when she advised him of our childs symptoms and brushed her off after making her feel like a terrible mother. Took our child to another pediatrician immediately and he diagnosed the problem instantly. Our childs condition immediately disapeared with our new pediatricians prescribed treatment.

18/04/07 4 4 5 He's not the warmest guy, but I feel confident that he knows what he's doing, is knowledgable, and will provide me with balanced information so I can make informed decisions about my children's care. Yes, he's busy, a sign of a doctor that's in demand.  Respond

16/04/07 4 5 5 Even though he is very rushed, he will double check things. Once he miswrote a head measurement for my son and he did some (minor) tests to make sure that everything was well and good. Also answers questions like you are an intelligent parent, so long as you aren't general. We love him!  Respond

04/03/07 3 5 5 I have children whom have been seeing him over 13 years. He has ALWAYS been very thorough and upfront about things. He will always answer questions you have, insure rapid specialty treatment if and when needed and always follows up. In emergency cases he will always find a way to fit you in somewhere that day regardless of how extremely booked he may be. He has been outstanding in the care of our four children and has never let us down. I have and would continue to recommend him to others (whom currently have their children with him as well). He may seem brusk at times, but he doesn't have the time to candy coat things for fragile egos. If you need the best possible care, honest and intelligible answers then he is definitely the one. You do have to compromise punctuality due to the fact that he is in high demand and will find a way to get emergency appointments in (as you would wish for your children too). We were so grateful when we FINALLY found him after several mistakes.  Respond

25/01/07 4 5 5 Dr. Pollack was a lifeline when my children were growing up. He went the extra mile for us, listened to all our quirky problems with concern and kindness, my kids loved him. He took time to explain problems and procedures to myself and my children and had a real personable manner.  Respond

13/01/07 4 5 5 Easy to talk to. Dr. Pollock has done appropriate referrals, as needed, very quickly. He also sent my son for an x-ray when he had a runny nose, fever and was coughing (even though his chest sounded clear with the stethescope). When we looked at the xray the doctor said he likely had pneumonia. I know other friends whose doctors tell them these symptoms will pass and its just a virus (and so no meds are prescribed). A few days later Dr. Pollock even called me on the phone to ask me how my son was doing and to confirm that the xrays came back and it really was pneumonia! I have recommended Dr. Pollock highly to my family and friends!  Respond
