Simply the best surgeon I have ever seen. He actually listens. That's why we drive 5 hours one way for every visit.

as noted earlier, this provider was the gate keeper and I was forced to see him first. terrible inconvenience and expensive. I knew what I wanted the consult about and was unable to get to the doc who specialized in that work. Terrible waste of my time and money

Dr. Polkowski is a very kind, knowledgeable, and bright physician. He is patient and has always taken as much time as we need to discuss my complicated history. I am so thankful our paths have crossed. My husband and I travel 2 1/2 hrs. from Huntville, AL to our appointment.
