Review of Dr. Polowy

- in Chandler, AZ |

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Polowy - I have been a patient for 5 years, and he is compassionate, caring and knowledgeable. He strives to provide you with all of the information needed to make the best decisions on your health.

Review of Dr. Polowy


Not easy to see Dr. Polowy. We were given a hard time with scheduling an appointment. Had to sit around for hours in his waiting room. He spoke with us for 10 minutes and left.

Review of Dr. Polowy

- in Lee |

Very competent physician, if you ever get into to see the guy. Reminds of the Wizard of Oz, "I'll have to give the matter a little thought. Go away and come back tomorrow." Very rude staff.

Review of Dr. Manus


First thing he does when he walks in the exam room is look at his watch. A minute later he looks at his watch, A minute later he looks at his watch, The appointment is rushed and you feel like a number not a person. Making appointments is even worse. I was handed a paper with my appointments scheduled for several months w/o any input from me. All but 1 appointment was changed the day before with a late afternoon call. Not unusual to wait 1 1/4 hours even with appointment.

Review of Dr. Polowy


The first visit went well. He is a friendly person. After that, it all went down hill. Sorry to say, my husband and I ultimately went elsewhere. The staff at the front office are not as friendly as he is. Unhappily an extremely long wait time.

Review of Dr. Polowy

- in Mesa |

When I walked into this man's office I was scared and confused and desperate to have my symptoms validated and understood. In the 15 months I have been under his care he has provided me with answers, hope, and health. Some days I would cry and get frustrated and others we would laugh, but he always took his time even if he ran behind because of it. Just know if he's not on time to see you it's because someone had 400 questions and he patiently answered them. And he will do the same for you. His

Review of Dr. Cherington

- in Queen Creek |

Dr. Cherington is hands down the best specialist. Nobody knew what we we going through, or could even correctly diagnose the issue. The first appointment with Dr. Cherington, he diagnosed the issue, knew exactly what treatment was needed and answered every question we had accurately and confidently. Highly recommend!

Review of Dr. Champagne

-Phoenix, AZ |

Horrible bedside manner. Made a bad experience worse. Would not recommend Champange or Ironwood to anyone dealing with such a life changing health matter.

Review of Dr. Champagne

-Chandler, AZ |

I would recommend Dr. Champagne to everyone! Excellent bedside manner, explained everything thoroughly and took her time with everything she did. I ended up having a nipple biopsy and now that I have healed you would never know anything had ever happened. If you need surgery she is doctor to see for sure!
