I have a healthy, vibrant 1 year old child that because of Dr. Polenik was diagnosed and treated for a heart condition that was found by Dr. Polenik. She did not only diagnose the child but referred me to the best pediatric cardiologist in the world. If you have been referred to this practice you are blessed! Dr. Polenik has been my physician for the birth of all 3 of my children. I thank GOD for her knowledge and compassion. I wish this practice many years of continued excellence!!!!!!
