If my husband had not been fortunate enough to come under Dr. Polin's care I believe he would have died. He has been great and I highly recommend him. In my opinion, he is all one can ask for in a doctor.

Dr Polin, an attentive listener, is the most personable doctor I’ve encountered in my 78 years. He is engaging, compassionate and humble...rare traits when seeing a doctor. I feel like I have an equal voice in deciding the time of any medical procedure. He respects my self knowledge. Right before surgery, I said, “My life is in your hands.” He paused at the door, turned to look me in the eye and replied, “And I take that very seriously.” I went into surgery feeling calm and safe. Recovery was smooth and quick. Dr Polin is as consistently present and engaging after surgery as before. I had a different doctor twice before this procedure; Dr Polin completed what my previous Doctor doctor failed to accomplish.

Dr. Glenn Polin has been my cardiologist for several years now, since he and his family first arrived in New Orleans. I'm totally satisfied with the care that I've received. I especially appreciate Dr. Polin's attention and the detailed explanations he provides for my conditions, procedures, recommended medications and treatment. He's prompt, and I never feel rushed during our visits, and the depth and breadth of his knowledge when I ask him any question, is a source of comfort and confidence in his ability. His staff is quick to respond to any routine messages I send through the portal and they are also very pleasant when checking me in. I feel truly blessed to be in the care of such a knowledgeable, capable and genuinely concerned doctor.

Dr. Polin and his staff have been very attentive to my needs. Without his professionalism in the medical field of Cardiology I might not be alive today. I feel that by implanting a Pace Maker he has help to extend my life for many years to come. Thanks to all involved with Dr. Polin.

Dr. Polin is a quality cardiologist who stays up to date on leading edge technologies. He is open minded and willing and able to find the best individualized solutions for his patients. Dr. Polin earns the respect of his patients while showing them respect in return. I had to give up my Cleveland Clinic trained cardiologist when I moved to New Orleans and thought I would not find a high caliber cardiologist in the Big Easy. I was wrong. For six years Dr. Polin has continued to impress me.
