Patient Comments (1)
in Livonia, MI |
In 2009/2010 I ended up in the hospital at Christian NE and Dr Polack was assigned to my case.. During my visit, he made me feel very uncomfortable, never made eye contact with me once! He said he wanted me to have a bone biopsy, I asked why, I was in for kidney failure, he said because he thought I needed one. I refused. Imagine my shock when in June of 2015 I was told that Dr Polack had documented that I had cancer but never told me!! My life has been cut short because of him!!
