    How was your appointment with Dr. Polofsky?

    Jan 13, 2023
    My family have been patients of his since 1998 or so. He is: -very knowledgeable - always keeps up to date on relevant health issues -compassionate - he actually cares! - a very skilled communicator - he speaks with you in a way that you understand The office personnel are very personable and friendly, too. You will have a long wait to see him - but once you do you’ll understand why - he spends as much time with you as you think he should. This isn’t an office that tries to push as many people through as possible. I equate him to what I think a stereotypical old time country Dr would be. One cool thing about him is he’s a fight Dr on the side - if he gets talking about it, you can tell how passionate he is
