    I was diagnosed with very rare diseases shortly after becoming a patient of Dr Polanco. I was concerned whether he would want to keep as a patient, I am time consuming, and there is very little known about my conditions. I needn't have worried he said I was a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from. Which really meant he had to read anything he could get his hands on to understand what was going on. There aren't very many doctors in this day who would do this. He is a very special doctor.

    He is by far the most patient and understanding Dr. I've ever had! He makes time for every question. He continued trying different things until my problem was solved and never making me feel like I was imagining it. I don't know where I would be if it hadn't been for him. His nurse His Nurse practitioner, Alex & Nurse Kate are so kind and helpful. My mom just moved to FL and she's going to her 1st appt with him this week, I hope they ALL out-live me, so I don't ever have to change! Thanks

    I have been going to Dr. Polanco for 16 years. My husband and mother both go to him as well. He has the best bed side manner I have had in a primary care physician. When a coworker comments about needing a PCP, I ALWAYS recommend Dr. Polanco. His PA and nurse is wonderful.
    Dr.Polanco is very kind, sweet and understanding. He takes his time with and answers EVERY question. He does not rush you out like other providers. The providers and staff are awesome except for the receptionist that sits at the check in window. Other that I highly recommend his practice.

    He's very thorough, takes his time and gives full details of what's being treated or what's changed since last visit. He's friendly, funny and always smiling. His staff are just as thorough as he is and will go the extra mile for you getting info and records. I've already given his name to my friends!
