Dr. Pollock

"Dr. Pollock is the best. He saved my husband's life. He was 81 years old when he did the surgery. His staff was great and he got the best of care. Dr. Pollock is one of kindest heart surgeons. The best. Thank you Dr. Pollock. God bless you!"

-- Edward Tewell, Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, Transcatheter, Root Replacement, 11/16/2016

"Dr. Pollock was great and his bed side manner was relaxed. His staff was also very helpful in navigating the insurance maze. I had my surgery at 38 because endocarditis destroyed the valve so I was VERY apprehensive going into this. I liked that he never advocated any one procedure but was very informative about all the options including the pitfalls. This helped guide me to the right decision for me. All in all the guy saved my life and I am lucky to have had him do the surgery."
