This was a routine followup on my colon cancer operation nearly 4 years ago. I feel I am in good hands and thank goodness, there is no sign of the cancer returning.
I had one very good visit and one visit where my experience did not at all match what I understand is how this procedure should go, and I think something was not done properly.
He did a great job. Smart, focused, patient, present.

Dr. Pollock was very charming & comforting . All staff was very cordial
I have been a patient of the clinic since 1984. Dr Pollack and the staff are all awesome. They go above and beyond to make an unpleasant exam comfortable. They are currently out of network for me but I choose to go there and self pay. Only negative is difficulty in making the appointment I called several times and got a recording says leave a message and we will call you back. That does no work for me as I drive alot and can't always answer my phone. I drove down to the office and made the appointment in person.
Great experience. Doctor really put me at ease and was respectful.
The surgery I had with Dr Pollock and the care was great!
