Dr. Polo always comes out of his office to greet me & thank me for coming in today. He remembers issues from my previous visit & begins each session following up. When I'm in crisis, he allots more time for my vis its until he's sure i'm ok. He's very knowledgeable & is always up to date on current treatments & meds for various mental diseases. I would recommend him to any of my friends.

He always listened to me and never made me feel judged. He approached my situation with the seriousness I would expect, but also with a touch of humor. He approached me and my life as a whole and took my health into account when suggesting medication (avoiding unwanted side effects like weight gain). I had absolute faith in his guidance.

Love love love Dr. Polo. The best anywhere!. He cares, takes time to listen, attentive, knowledgeable and always ready to provide extra resources such has books, or health care professionals. Always leave his office feeling that I have been affirmed and helped.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
