Dr. Polo listened to my medical concerns and explained the procedures thoroughly. He took the time to explore different options available and consequences. We came to an agreement as to the best way to handle my particular medical issue. A friend in the medical field told me that Dr. Polo is a very good surgeon and I would agree.
