I had only one diseased Parathyroid gland removed and within 12 hours my back and legs stopped aching. I continue to improve daily since my 5/17/2019 surgery. Thank you Dr Politz for giving me my life back. Thank you also to the amazing staff at Norman Parathyroid Center, Tampa FL.

This was my second visit in 10 years. Dr. Politz is one of the few surgeons in the WORLD skilled in the delicate parathyroid surgery that he performed on me. His bedside manner is amazing for such a world renown surgeon. He treats you like family, he takes time to explain everything and answer all your questions. Him, not his nurse. I find this very rare in today’s busy world. I highly recommend Dr. Politz. Elaine Lee.

Dr Politz and his team of surgeons are the very best in the nation. From the beginning all the way through the surgery and beyond they all are so supportive and reassuring. No one in Los Angeles does this type of surgery with finess like these surgeons do. I love each of them and will highly recommend to everyone I come in contact with. If not for the Norman parathyroid center I would still be having serious issues. They found and removed two tumors (parathyroid glands) that went bad.

After four failed surgeries over the past 30 years, I had given up all hope of a cure for my hyperparathyroidism. That changed when I met Dr. Politz; his kindness, compassion, and extensive knowledge gave me hope for a good outcome for the first time in many years. The surgery was a success, and I feel fantastic! A huge thank you to Dr. Politz and the dedicated staff at NPC for this miracle in my life. Dr. Politz is beyond awesome!

Dr Politz assisted Dr Boone on my September 2018 parathyroid surgery. He was friendly and attentive with patients and staff. My surgery went great (yes, it’s surgery, so it does hurt for a few days) and the results after two weeks already exceed my expectations; I feel so much better! If you have a parathyroid adenoma, don’t delay. I did a lot of research, and Dr Politz and the team at Norman Parathyroid Center are the best in the country.

This surgeon saved my life! Mine was an usual situation anatomically with parathyroid glands not in normal location. What if I had gone to an inexperienced surgeon? To ANYBODY else but this group? Thank God.

Dr. Politz is amazing. Giving someone their life back is nothing short of a miracle, but he gave me that gift. I had 3 parathyroid tumors (WHO KNEW!) He removed them all and had me good as new in 19 minutes. His compassion is second to none and I encourage everyone with high calcium to please seek him out. Read the info on Norman Parathyroid Center website. Don't wait! It can't hurt, it can only make you better!

Excellence in every respect! From my initial consultation through surgery and follow up, Dr. Politz was expert, professional and accessible. His surgical approach (see his website at parathyroid.com) ensures the best outcome for his patients. I interviewed respected endocrine surgeons in NYC and Boston and none compared! I recommend him enthusiastically! Don’t hesitate to travel to Tampa to have him as your parathyroid surgeon!!!

Dr Politz is the best. Ive never had such a wonderful experience with a doctor and staff. He is personable, responsive, kind and patient. If you are dealing with parathyroid concerns, do not think about going anywhere other than the Norman Parathyroid Center.

Dr. Politz is very kind . He took time to educate me on my Hyperparathyroid issue before and after my surgery May 10,2018. This is the only place I recommend a person go if he or she has issues. Please look up the Norman Parathyroid Center & call to ask questions don’t delay your health!! You can do this yourself. Dr.Politz and the other Doctors are here to help us. They know more than anyone else I’ve ever seen over the last 4 plus years hence the words, ‘World Renouned’ doctors!!

Dr. Politz is knowledgeable, compassionate and personable. I researched before choosing the Norman Parathyroid Center and I'm glad I did. In fact, I traveled across the country just to have Dr. Politz and team perform my surgery. I feel extremely fortunate to have had the skilled hands and sharp mind of this physician treating me. When doctors like Dr. Politz care about educating people so passionately, you know you can trust them. He utilizes technology to teach. parathyroid.com - get the app!
