My provider is one of the best physicians ever. I am a retired R.N. and have been associated with many physicians and he is at the top. If not for the great job he did when I had surgery I probably would not be walking now. None better.

Each visit with Dr. Polkowski is a wonderful experience. He so graciously explains fractures in my bones and how they are repairing themselves. I admire his relationships he has with his patients. He is of great value to Vanderbilt Medical Center!

Dr. "P" is wonderful.
Patient | August 27, 2018

Only gave a "fair" rating re: follow up care since he didn't have to discuss this with me at that time. I registered for a class to deal with all that information

Patient | December 25, 2017

we traveled fromChatt to Nashville to see this provider. excellent coordination of care from Vanderbilt when I had surgery last year for hip replacement. I have a blood clotting disorder and was referred to Vanderbilt & Dr Polkoski for this reason . excellent care!!
Patient | December 19, 2017

Dr. Polkowski has been wonderful throughout my recovery process after surgery, as well as before and during surgery. He gave me the ability to save my hip when I was misdiagnosed by my original doctor, and allowed me to walk again without pain. I cannot sing his praises enough for helping me, and how amazing he is at what he does. I've never had a better physician before, he truly is wonderful at his job.
Patient | December 18, 2017

Going into this knee replacement surgery, I was apprenhensive. After meeting and talking with Dr. Polkowski, my mind was more at ease. Everything went as described by Dr. Polkowski and his staff. Each step of the surgery and recovery was explained. VUMC is so fortunate to have Dr. Polkowski in the Joints Clinic with his expertise, professionalism, passionate about his work and approachable.
Patient | December 12, 2017

Dr. Polkowski is my one and only orthopaedist! I have nothing but good things to say about him, and have recommended him to several people... and will continue to do so.
