Ratings for Dr. Richard A. Pollak
I went to see Dr. Pollak because I had severe pain in 3 of my middle toes on my left foot and I could barely able to walk. He took x-rays of my feet. All he had to say was that it looked like my toes were injured at some time. He was no help to me at all. I still can't believe that he did absolutely nothing to help me. It was a complete waste of my time and money.
Dr Pollack was good up until an appointment I had where I had to wait thirty minutes more after being on time. No one from his staff came to advise me of an emergency he might have had. I asked to reschedule. When I returned I was informed by his rude staff that because I did wait fifteen extra minutes, he didn't want to help me. I turned him over to the Medical Board for this. His staff are all unprofessional and not courteous. I would not recommend this doctor.
The staff was fine. First visit I commented on wait of over one hour and they were surprised. Said they weren't backlogged. I didn't feel doctor listened to me or wanted to be bothered by my questions. After second unsuccessful visit when he told me he had fixed my problem and hadn't, I found Jessica Rutstein. She answered questions I didn't even know to ask and created a conservative, step by step, approach to ensure we identify and correct the problem or problems. Her first step of prescribing new tennis shoes worked wonders.
