Infusion lab wait time is terrible I have been there 5-7 hours some days. Scheduling is terrible at 160 Oaks.

Excellent physician. If I ever have to have my other knee replaced, I would certainly go to him.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

Dr Polkowski is a wonderful surgeon, he is a much better provider than what I have available in upstate New York. that is why I travelled so far to have him do my procedure.

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

Knowledgeable & experienced.
Patient | May 31, 2017

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
Patient | May 16, 2017

The purpose of my visit was to get a second opinion concerning a knee replacement. Dr. Powlkowski was very helpful and knowledgable.

Patient | February 26, 2017

The doctor was very friendly and answered all my questions. When the time comes for me to have hip surgery I will be back to see him. He put my mind at ease and explained everything about hip surgery.

Dr. Polkowski waited patiently through my many questions and made sure I knew how to get in touch with him if I needed refills or had questions about my therapy or anything about recovery. So patient and caring.
