Dr Polonski is clinically excellent, as far as I can tell. He performed a surgery that previously, with another doctor, had failed. This time it was a success! On the down side, his communication skills are not very good. He is often brusque and somewhat condescending. In addition, although his staff is very nice, long waits seem to be the norm.

Dr. Polinski did an upper lid skin removal on both eyes. He was professional, witty, and did an outstanding job! While recovering I had no bleeding, little swelling, and very little bruising. I am impressed with his work. I have recommended him to many of my friends. I am very happy that I was referred to him. People have said I look like a new person. My husband said he hadn't realized before that I had green eyes! The office is friendly and helpful.

I am thankful I found Dr. Polonski . I have confidence in his professional expertise , his office is so organized and helpful in scheduling tests, making appointments, and answering questions. I wish all the health providers I use were this professional and organized. He is the best!

I have been seeing Dr. Polonski for years and would not see anyone else for my eye care. He always takes the time to explain everything, even when the office is busy.

Dr Polonski is an excellent doctor with true compassion for his patients. My husband developed an infection in his eye and Dr. Polonski came in Easter morning to remove the eye to prevent the infection from spreading to his brain. He explained everything thoroughly before the surgery and followed up with me after the surgery and with my husband the following day and again a week later in the office.

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!
