This visit went very well. It was originally scheduled for April 26, 2022 at 9:00AM. When I got to the clinic that day I was told that the doctor was running about an hour late, if I could wait or if not I had to reschedule. I was not told what caused the delay.

This was my first time seeing Dr Pollard. He was very professional and answered all my questions. He took his time to be sure I understood the plan of care and very accommodating in helping me set up a cardiology referral
