Very busy doc referred by my good friends and I was not disappointed at all . Addressed my problem in very efficient manner and most importantly solved an issue that has been long standing. I have sent my own friends to him who were also very pleased. Dr pollak has expanded hours and will always get you in the same day . I'm glad I saw dr pollak and rank him as one of the most caring I specialists i have ever seen. He was even available on Saturday

I was kept waiting, no big deal, then I was rushed in, no greeting, no bedside manner..asked a few routine questions, looked in my nostrils, spend 6 minutes with me, the entire time rushed and taking phone calls. He told me that I needed a hearing test (for a cough?) and I explained that I'd just had one a month ago and that it was perfect for my age. As if HE needed the hearing test, not hearing me, he insisted that I call his office to schedule the test. I was then dismissed. I relayed this experience to my referring doc who replied ""This isn't the first time I've hear this. I won't refer more patients to him. He was simply trying to make money off of you"".

I have never seen or been to a worse doctor i took my son to see him we had an appoiment at 3 got there at 2 30 and still wasnt seen till 345. He was very rough with my son i wouldnt even recommend him even if you were dying. The staff is almost as bad as he is. He has a medicial degree but no degree in being a polite indiviual.

I seen dr.Pollak at his Chicago Offiice. Appt was scheduled on the same day. Waited only a few minutes to see the doctor. Problem was solved almost immediately. He is the best ENT doctor around. I would recommend this doctor to anyone. The good thing is is that he has 4 different locations. His staff is very good and concerned about us. I also noted he has excellent training at Northwestern University.

I would strongly reccomend him for any of my family or friends. His office staff was very helpful and super friendly.

After having longstanding recurrent ear problems, I found Dr. Pollak after being referred to him by my insurance company. I am very glad that they recommended him. I had a prolonged consultation, he spent time with me explaining my problem and how we can go about fixing it. No other ear doctor I went to in the past helped me understand my problem the way he did. I had enough time to answer questions and feel comfortable in my care. His staff was very helpful in scheduling my procedure. I felt very comfortable in his care.\r
After my surgery, he kept a close watch at my recovery. He was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a excellent ear,nose,throat doctor. His confidence and compassion gave me back my faith in medicine.

This is in regards to the office visit I had with Dr. Pollak on 10-26-2006. I was concerned with an ear condition that I had at the time, and came to a morning appointment to the Weiss Memorial Hospital hoping to receive a diagnosis from an experienced otolaryngologist. \r
First, Dr. Pollak had me wait for one hour from my appointment time before I was even directed to an examination room. There I had to wait another 30 minutes before the doctor even entered the room. Dr. Pollak double- and even triple-books his patients, as if patients? time is not valuable at all compared to doctor?s. I dare to object strongly to this notion and was appalled by the wait time and the disregard to my own schedule!\r
The doctor performed a hearing test, and indicated that the hearing in general was fine. I asked him what was his diagnosis of my condition, and he promised to give it to me ?in 10 minutes?, after another test.\r
Another test could not be done, because the test machine turned out to be broken. Dr. Pollak then said that it was not very important test anyway (?!) and that he would do another test instead.\r
He performed another test, using the same disposable earplug for both of my ears and suggesting the nurse to reuse that earplug again! After the test, I asked him again what was his diagnosis, but he again refused to say. Instead he suggested I set up another appointment with him, in his Skokie office.\r
Two and a half hours of wait and frustration and the only result -- Dr. Pollak was pushing another test at me, without ever communicating any conclusions! \r
My whole experience was appalling, time and money wasted. Dr. Pollak diminished me to a thing, not worth communicating with. \r
