Dr Polmann is a caring and professional doc. She gets 4 stars. But there are problems that hurt patient care. For months there was great difficulty finding a knowedgeable hunan to talk to after a nurse left the practice. When a new nurse arrived, no info was provided to to let patients know how to reach her with a question. Instead we had the old number for the nurse who had bern gone for months. A dead end. No info. The staff telks you that yoyll get a call from scheduling for followups. These calks on two occasions never came, so i did not have timely followups. In another situation ive experienced a number of medication side effects. I emailed the new nurse Practitioner. Some questions answered after about 5 days. Some not, and when i ask for followship, no replies after several more days. Overall this translates into subpar medical care. Given this is for hormonal chemotherapy to prevent cancer recurrence, so my care does not meet my needs. 1 star for logistics. 2 stars overall.
