Thank you for your review, I take all reviews into consideration to understand how I can improve the service I provide. I'm sorry that on this occasion you felt that your time had been wasted. Unfortunately, despite the fact that we had requested your scans from The Holly Hospital, they had not arrived in time for your appointment. This was an IT failure beyond my control and I apologised to you at the time. I arranged for you to have an ultrasound scan with one of our best radiologists on the same day at no cost to you and offered you a follow up appointment which has subsequently taken place via Teams. I'd be more than happy to offer you another complimentary appointment to discuss this further if you wish.
Mr Pollock is a conscientious and dedicated surgeon with whom I have worked for the last 12 years at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. I would have no hesitation recommending him to one of my friends or family.
Mr. Rob Pollock is an exceptionally experienced and skilful orthopaedic surgeon, whom I met first as one of my brightest students at the Middlesex Hospital and UCL. He then undertook fellowships in Sydney, Australia and Denver, USA where he gained experience in hip and knee replacement, arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery, and the management of bone tumours. I am pleased to say that he achieved a lot as a clinician with the research perspective and is recognised as one of the best specialists in his field. He is very popular amongst patients worldwide who appreciate his knowledge, skills as a surgeon and accessible approach and empathy. I recommend him strongly.
Rob is a dedicated excellent orthopaedic surgeon and bone tumour specialist highly recommended!!
