A highly skilled surgeon who is passionate about his work and dedicated to his patients' care. I appreciated his compassion and availability before, during and after my surgery. Going to Tampa was the right choice for me and I am grateful for the excellent care I received from Dr. Politz.

I highly recommend Dr. Politz. Great surgeon. Well worth my trip to Tampa from Los Angeles. The facility (Norman Parathyroid Center) is the only place you should go if you have hyperparathyroidism. Everyone there is extremely helpful, professional, and friendly.
