Ratings for Dr. Bradley Pollock
Very rude and uncomfortable doctor. Offices are unorganized and messy. I brought my 3 year old son in with suspected strep throat (as I had strep at the time, ive had it multiple times and I know how uncomfortable it is) he didn't want to do a throat swab as he said "everyone has a bit of strep all the time" .. whatever that means. I requested a throat swab 3x until he finally gave in.. surprise surprise, strep throat, antibiotics were needed. He is quite scatterbrained and might actually need ADHD meds himself.
We have had Dr.Pollock for just about three years as our pediatrician. Every time we see him it gets worse and I leave feeling very upset. He has the worst bedside manner, pulling my sons pants down roughly and ripping diaper off. I feel like he's violating him. He doesn't explain to my two year old what he's doing, just rips his pants off. It makes me very uncomfortable. After he gives a vaccination he points to cotton balls and bandaids and says help yourself. That is super inappropriate. He is always rushed and very distracted. When we ask questions I feel he doesn't listen to what I'm saying. I have to repeat myself many times to get an answer. I will be finding a new pediatrician very soon. I feel he doesn't take my concerns seriously. He's very nonchalant about everything.
When my son was born Dr. Pollock was assigned to him in the NICU. The nurses advised that we should keep him as our child's physician because he was the best in the city. I am glad we took the recommendation. I agree with one of the previous ratings that he is not there for chit chat or to be a buddy - he is there to care for your child and he has a very busy day. However, I have never felt like he brushed away any concerns I have ever had nor does he overlook anything. That is what you want for a pediatrician - he is smart, forward thinking and thorough.
Although I don't have much experience with pediatricians, I don't like him. I always feel rushed. I have twins and told they were teething and asked how I can help them in pain, hr said they rnt in pain while teething and just to give them toys to detract them. He didn't give me a prescription for one of my son's very bad leg rash. Not impressed all around
We love Dr Pollack. He is thorough and knowledgeable and answers all of our questions. He referred our son for allergy testing right away when I had concerns but doesn't make small concerns into a big deal or immediately suggest medication. I love his attention to detail and despite being a very busy doctor, he remembers our boys. One thing that I always enjoy about our visits is that Dr Pollack speaks to our boys (aged 2 and 5) age appropriately. It is obvious that he loves kids. Regarding his parenting and dietary advice, I appreciate the information, follow as much as I can and always try to remember that I have plenty to learn. He always has our boys best interests at heart.
