Dr. Pollock JR. is the best specialist that I have seem in North Carolina and that's saying allot. I have several conditions that require his expertise and he has been flawless, professional, considerate of long term abilities during and after recover. He hits the nail on the head everything with excellent diagnosis, surgery, and recovery. He also spends more time with his patients to cover EVERY little detail of your condition and making sure you know the options in a practical manner of how any action from treatment or surgery to your individual life style than any other doctor I have had. I decided to switch to him from a previous doctor after years as a guinea pig and countless forms of useless therapy including Biofeedback which in itself is good but when there is absolutely no progress for over a year. It was clear my previous doctor was just milking the insurance. Doctor Pollock doesnt do unnecessary tests or require more visits after he has deemed you a clean bill of help. My only and MAYJOR complaint is the long wait time to see him even with a appointment. But that is mostly due to the scheduling manager because he/she are aware of how much time he spends with each patient. In this case you get what you wait for and pay for. He is worth the wait.
