What People Say About Dr. Martin Poleski, MD
Reply
He was not interested in what I had to say. Only wanted tests and little background. Never looked at me direcly. Hurried. He told me I needed a certain test but then didn't send order. I had to ask nurse to ask him about it. Gave me no confidence. I have lots of great duke Drs but not him.
