She was my Gyno when she was here in PA and went by her married name Pollock. I didn't have any problems with her but I was rather confused when I found out she no longer had a practice here. She should have called her patients or sent out letters or something when she closed up shop, moved and sent all our medical records elsewhere.
truly an amazing dr, Whitney removed cysts from my ovaries when I was 17 years old and she made my surgery priority due to the size of my cysts and the pain I was in. she was amazing with me. it breaks my heart that she's no longer around where I live because now I'm 23 years old and my cysts came back, along with endometriosis and the care I received this time made me wish so badly I had doctor polluck back. it's so sad that not to many doctors actually do what they do for their patients, but Whitney is 100% an amazing, loving caring doctor and I personally miss her so much. she was only my obgyn, not a personal friend or anything. I've been trying to find a way to contact her, just to talk to her but I haven't figured out how yet. dr. Whitney polluck is the most amazing doctor I've ever met.
She is an absolutely despicable disgrace to her profession. She pushed patients toward a procedure which she just happened to be a paid spokesperson of the products involved. She vaguely informed patients of the overall risk to themselves & their possibly unborn children. She then bailed on her patients without notice & ran off to another state. At that time she illegally forwarded her patient's records, without their permission, to another gynecologist in Reading, PA. That office refuses to acknowledge having such records.
I went to Dr. Pollock's office for a routine annual exam, which is covered 100 percent by my insurance. I was asked to pay a co-pay upon arrival. When I explained my insurance coverage to the receptionist, she said, "But it says $45 copay right here on your insurance card." I repeated my insurance company's coverage (which I've used for several years) and told her to submit any bills to my insurance. Several weeks later, I received a bill for $45. When I called to ask why, I was told I was charged for an office visit because I'm a new patient. I again explained my insurance company's policy (an insurance company rep even explained it to them to no avail); however, the woman in Dr. Pollock's office insisted it's their policy to charge new patients a co-pay. At some point, someone from Dr. Pollock's office told my insurance company rep I was charged for an office visit because there was a diagnosis, which the rep and I agree is something that is covered by annual exams. I'm beginning to think they charge copays for new patients because that's the only patients they have. I'll not go back and I will continue to fight this charge.
