About Dr. Pollock

Philosophy of care

My philosophy of care is doing what’s best for you and keeping you as informed as possible about your health care to reach the best outcome.

Why I entered medicine

As a child and young adult I looked up to a lot of people in the medical field and that made a big impression on me. I enjoyed the sciences from an early age and, when the time came, decided to apply those skills to the field of medicine. I also knew I wanted to practice in a community setting in Pennsylvania like my father and grandfather did before me.

Community involvement

Most of my volunteer work has been with area youth organizations. I have been president and administrative official of the local YMCA swim team for seven years. I volunteer and assist in the organization of multiple charity races and triathlons that benefit the community.

Personal interests

I spend free time cycling, running, swimming, skiing, water skiing, fishing, hunting and pretty much anything outdoors. But really my biggest interest now is my family, their interests and future.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
