Dr. Neil Pollock's Ratings
There is no question that Dr. Pollock is an expert in what he does. His staff are great, and he knows what he is doing. However, his practise, and the way that he scams patients into paying an extra $300 for their treatment is absolutely unethical and shameful. His "VIP" package for vasectomies includes no-needle anesthetic, a bag of useless goodies (ice, a jock strap) AND phone consultations. So, it's fine that he's charging for the first two - those are comforts beyond basic medical care, and our gov't shouldn't pay for those. BUT, the phone consultations should absolutely be included in the $150 or so that he gets for doing the 10 min procedure in the first place. Instead, people that cannot afford $300 are forced to miss work, find childcare, and pay to get into the city and park for a 15 second (yes, it took less than 15 seconds!) consultation so that he can charge the gov't for a consultation fee, rather than not get paid for the 15 second phone call. And this is in addition to the $55 he charges for "processing"... something about being able to book online (even though this didn't work for us and we ended up calling in anyway). It's disgusting. Meanwhile, he is driving a Lambourghini. This is NOT the way the Canadian healthcare system is meant to work. This is disturbingly close to the American system, where rich people get richer, poor get poorer. Unfortunately, there is no competition in Vancouver, so his clinics have the monopoly and there's nothing that an be done. I'm horrified that he's getting away with this.
Dr Pollock and his staff are amazing! We were very nervous about our 10-day old son's procedure, but Dr. Pollock and his team made us feel super comfortable. Thanks again for the excellent care! 5*****!
We recently had a circumcision done on our 5 year old with Dr. Pollock. We were a little worried about the process given the age of my child. The staff was very professional in explaining to us during the consultation about the process.
During the day of surgery, we could not have had a better experience. From the very beginning, we felt at ease and the procedure went extremely well with out son being calm during the entire time. Dr. Pollock was very professional and his technique was fast and precise.
After the surgery, we given clear instructions on how to care for our child and everything went well. We have visited Dr. Pollack for two more follow ups and we were treated to with the same professionalism and kindness by his entire office. We definitely recommend Dr Pollock and his staff to anyone!
