I had surgery preformed by Dr Polynice this Feb., 2016. The results are just great. I would highly reccomend this skilled Physician. The entire experience was very professional and I would not hesitate to have another procedure under his care.

Dr. Polynice was so great, had breast augmentation and about a year after my surgery one of my implants ruptured and Dr. Polynice took care of me and did my revision as well. He was great and so was the staff!
