Patient Comments (1)

Owensboro, KY |
Dr. Polio does an amazing job making sure the patient is comfortable with his procedure, and talks to his patients like real people, not like they’re just patients who don’t understand anything. He’s very educated in his field and you can tell he knows what he is talking about. Will be going back...more
