Extremely knowledgeable doctor. I took a family member there for help with diabetes and his management was spot on! I am a doctor myself, (chiropractor) and I refer patients to him all the time. I always hear grateful reviews from my patients regarding his care. He is really great!!!

Doctor Polisky has been a trusted advisor in my daughter's medical condition. He took the time to answer all our questions without making us feel rushed, and he adds just the right amount of humor to give things a light touch. His follow up was greatly appreciated.

He is a typical conventional dr. Poor attitude with knowledge that only goes so far. If you're white and he likes you he'll take his time. I was on time for my appt and I sat and waited for 25 min as he had a friendly non medical talk with the white people next door. Terrible. I've seen him twice and will never go again.

Dr. Polisky has a sense of humor that I would say is not for everyone & was offensive w/me, an ex: of this that I experienced at my first visit with him when he mentioned that "if I ever get pregnant again that the 1st call beside my mother and my husband hoping that it is his, is to call him" Not to mention, when i called the office to ask him a question, both times he made indirect comments about my calls bugging him. which over shadowed the possibility of him being a good doctor all around.

I had such a great experience! The office staff was friendly and efficient. Dr. Polisky listened to me, I mean really listened. He made me feel like I have someone on my side helping fight the good fight of T1D! Also, he is on top of all the advancements, which gives the patient the greatest confidence. I feel grateful for the time he spent addressing my concerns and what we will do going forward!

Very cerebral. Not a warm personality. Listens carefully and is decisive.
