    Dr. Pollock always takes a moment to listen to me and yes I talk too much and I always have concerns but she listens she addresses them and when I leave her office I do feel like someone really about my health but also about me she cares about my life and work and it's refreshing to know that your care provider really loves her job. It shows in her smile when she greats me she congratulates me on my blood work encourages my efforts a wonderful relationship and I trust her with my medical needs I don't feel like just another medical record number.

    I just wish they would treat me like Stanford did. My doctors had to be told by my acupuncture doctor that I was sick and they needed to treat me seriously after 6 months of agony and fear! The nuerology doctor also misdiagnosed me. I'm very upset and frustrated. They finally took me seriously but still treat me like it's in my head instead of my body. It's really sad. I'm frustrated!
