Described as one of “the best of the best”, Dr. Pollak was named one of the top doctors in the May/June 2017 Gold Coast Magazine, chosen by Castle Connolly Medical LTD, a healthcare research and information company. She was only one of two urogynecologists named. Physicians in this category are chosen through a rigorous process. First they are nominated by licensed physicians, then their educational and professional experience is fully evaluated, and finally, selection is made by a peer physician committee. As expressed by Gold Coast Magazine, “doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled in Castle Connolly Top Doctors”.
