I would NOT recommend him to anyone looking to get a fistula or a graft for dialysis, period! My husband has been through 16 surgeries in one year and still does not have a working fistula or graft. Absolutely ridiculous!!!! Going elsewhere, like we should have a long time ago!

After years of dealing with a prolapsed rectum issue, Dr. Polder did robotic surgery and fixed the problem. It's like having a new start on life!! He explained everything in detail and took excellent care of me before and after the surgery. Thank you Dr. Polder!!
