    Dr. Polsky is fine, but his staff is not helpful at all. Continued problems with not returning phone calls, and requests for prescription refills were totally ignored. My pharmacy left his office three messages, and I subsequently left messages, and of the 6 phone calls left, not one return call was received. I also called and left messages for pre-op questions which were all ignored until I called to cancel the surgery. No mediation and excessive swelling are apparently fine.
