I regret having selected Dr. Polonski to do my cataract surgery. I feel that my vision is worse after the surgery compared to before the surgery. To me, he seemed extremely cavalier about my emotional well-being in terms of not returning calls. In addition, I felt he did not accurately represent my outcome in my records.

Dr. Polonski is exceptional. He took my astigmatism and cataract ridden eyes to 20/25 in both reading and distance vision. His most appealing trait to me is his straight forward personal interest in his patients, his availability, and his strong desire for the very best outcome from surgery. Simply, he cares!

He put 3 stitches in each eye during eyelid surgery and failed to remove one in each eye in follow up visits. This caused scratching, pain and redness. When I returned to complain of the scratchiness and pain, I was advised it was usual, just part of the healing process. When I finally went to my regular ophthalmologist he saw and removed the stitches this guy hadn't!
