Patient Comments (3)
I went to Dr. Polivy for an independent medical review for a injury I received at work. I found him to be very professional and efficient. He went through my file, spoke to me at length about my symptoms, examined my injury and gave me his opinion on my plan of care. I was very pleased with him and would return to him if needed. I cannot comment on billing or scheduling because it was a workmens comp issue and my company handled that.

I would give 0 stars if it was possible. Poor bed side manner and atrocious administrative team. Doctor preferred to not answer questions and was running a patient factory to drive up his bottom line. Administrative team did not submit my services correctly to insurance and wouldn't return my calls when seeking a follow up appointment. Luckily I was able to appeal through my insurance and get it resolved after a month. Insurance company had to call 4 times to have the office resubmit bill.

Dr. Polivy spent only a few minutes with me, did not complete a verbal medical history and had no compassion or understanding of the pain I was in.
