What People Say About Dr. Alena Polesin, MD

It was not a good one. I had a appointment for an epidural on April 23 I was on time but she was 90 minutes late which caused her patients to be stack up. There was no early warning a or any indication she was going to be late. So for a 15 procedure I was there over 3 hours. Then I had a follow up appointment for 9 AM Friday, May 3 we waited and waited we asked where she was and were told they didn’t where she was and she wasn’t responding to any calls. So we left at 10 AM and they never followed up after that. So I am seeing another doctor. Do not waste your time.

Dr. Polesin is a knowledgeable, caring and compassionate physician. She spends quality time with her patients and explains medications, tests and procedures. She also suggests non-invasive options that have worked well for my old injury which cannot be helped by surgery. Wait times can sometimes be a little long because she takes the time needed with complex patients. I don’t mind the occasional long wait because of the excellent care I receive.

Has a part time tech do the majority of an emg test. Then she does about a ten minute finish. I was told by them both that I had an EXTREME case of carpal tunnel on both hands that needed immediate surgery as my case was so bad that I already had muscle loss and atrophy. I was not sent there about carpal tunnel. And in the end after rushing to a wonderful surgeon her diagnosis turned out to be totally incorrect.

She is an exceptional Dr. Listens carefully, takes time to explain. Has treated two members of my family very successfully. I would recommend her highly.

Dr. Polesin takes the time to listen and explain the treatments that she prescribes. My waiting times have not been acceptable, not like those of some of the other reviewers.

I waited over an hour in the waiting room. I overheard another patient asking about her appointment at 11 (it was now 11:55). When I questioned the reception staff about my 11:30 appointment, at 12:30pm, they got someone to put me in an examining room. When she had still not shown up at 1pm, I left. There were two more patients in the waiting room for her at that point. Outrageous.

I waited over an hour once I was put into the examining room. In severe pain I walked out as she was coming in. No apologies .. I was unimpressed. Would never go to her again.
