    I had a parathyroid tumor removed by Dr Politz. He is an expert surgeon and the kindest, caring and the most thorough Dr I have ever seen. I haven't felt good in years and was dismissed by all of the other doctors and specialists I have seen. I live in Arizona and traveled to Florida for the surgery. One week post-op, I feel better than I have in years. I am eternally grateful to Dr Politz and highly recommend him!

    I had my surgery with Dr Politz, my primary doctor at NPC, and Dr Boone on Friday 3/24 and already feel like I have my life back. Bone pain, fatigue, abdominal pain were gone the next day. Reflux, gone. Muscle weakness, gone. Mental clarity, memory and focus already improving by the day. Dr Politz's intuition that I had abnormal glands despite not having super high calcium levels saved my life, literally and figuratively. He answers emails and calls, and really listens, all too rare these days!

    Dr Politz is an amazing Dr. and surgeon. He is personable, kind and patient. He is knowledgeable & thorough, he explains everything to his patients so they can understand the care that they need. I recently had parathyroid surgery with him in FL and the care that I received was amazing. My surgery went very well, the next day I was feeling unbelievably better. I am very grateful to him and I highly recommend him. I have been to many specialists over the years and by far, he is one of the best!

    I had my surgical procedure to remove one adenoma in October of 2016. I am most grateful to Dr. Politz who performed my surgery and could not have wished for a better surgeon. Dr. Politz is very professional, caring and attentive. He checked in on me the night of the surgery to see how I was doing, and kept in communication returning my call even several days out after I had already returned home to California.
