The best and through exam we have ever had by a doctor. Recommendations regarding our health was explained in full detail. If you fortunate enough to see this doctor, you will be pleased.

Dr. Polanco is very patient, smart and compassionate. He makes sure that his patients get what they need. Balancing his time must be challenging, since he seems to spend considerable time reviewing his patients' files, consulting with patients, their records and family members as well as pulling from his own knowledge. He is smart and he knows what he is doing. He has treated me in the rehabilitation center, at his office and in the hospital. It is reassuring to have the continuity.

Dr. Polanco is great but the staff is incompetent. Do not count on them being as thorough or knowledgeable. They don't appear to care about that either.
Ok.

While I was hospitalized my doctor was called away due to an emergency. Dr, Polanco arrived in my room did not say he was on call for my doctor and explained none of the chan ges he made to my care. He was so rude and full of himself that I considered leaving the hospital against medical advice. When he became aware of this he not only insisted he had been nothing but polite and provided me with all the explanations I needed. He then told me I was capable of understanding nothing. Never Again,

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
