dr. pollack and his office staff are AMAZING. I would recommend this office to anyone who had a child with any neurological needs. They are very professional, kind, and always make sure they've answered all of my questions. Dr. pollack is worth the four hour drive for our family! Thank you for exceptional service!

Got CT scan same day and they did a great job. Waiting on results of CT. Only complaint is that our appt was scheduled at 10:30. We arrived at 10 & checked in. We didn't see the Dr until noon.

Dr Pollock is very nice, helpful and explains things very clearly so that we can understand. We really like that he took the time to ask our child if he had any questions for him as well.
