I have had it with this office! I have been trying to get a procedure done on my son for over 6 months! I provided all the documents by fax AND email. I have left several messages with no return call. The last 2 days I have called and waiting on reception and was disconnected. The procedure was and is not an emergency but waiting 6 months is not acceptable. I last faxed a document 2 months ago and left message with no return call. The doctor was nice but the staff is what makes your office! Joanna, shame on you for not doing your job and following up with patience.

Dr. P corrected a surgery gone bad by Dr. Keating in Orlando. I'm talking Dr. Keating strangled my daughters kidney and Dr. P had to remove dead kidney and replace ureter.

Dr. Polsky is a highly knowledgeable and talented pediatric urologist. He came highly recommended to us by the NICU & labor and delivery nurses at Tampa General. My son had complex birth defects, chordee and severe hypospadias, that required multiple surgeries. Dr. Polsky patiently explained each step of the process to us and answered all of my MANY questions, many of which I had written down before the appointment. HE IS THE BEST! All of the surgeries are now done. My son now has the abilit

If this Dr. recommends that your baby have a circumcision revision with a trimming of excess shaft skin, make an appointment for a 2nd opinion with Dr. Michael Keating at Florida Center for Pediatric Urology in Orlando. Polsky recommended the revision for our 10 month old & Dr. Keating said our baby should not have been recommended for surgery and prescribed a strong steroid cream instead to help detach the skin. The excess skin is normal & he will grow into it as he grows. Get the 2nd opinion!

The doctor is a money hungry, he doesn't care about your child well being, all he cares about is how much money he is going to get out of you. I went for a second opinion and the problem didn't need a surgery like he claims. Horrible.

He took his time to listen to our concerns, he shared urology related problems he had with his own daughter, he spent a lot of time talking to us and made us feel comfortable with decisions we made.
