Dr. Poletti take time to explain what is happening with your current condition. Give you options on how to handle condition. Great bedside manner. Shows compassion to patients. I surgery is needed he keeps you informed on what he did and how long it took. Goes over what you need to do after surgery and home care. I would recommend him and he is the only Dr. I'll ever use for sine health.

Dr. Steven Poletti was a disappointment! He is arrogant & unconcerned with his patient's needs. I waited weeks to get an appointment, & once the day finally arrived, I sat in the waiting room for over an hr before getting in a room. Once there, a rushed Dr. Poletti entered my room, and treated me like I was a dumb-nuisance. He questioned me in a demeaning tone, & told me that I was not in pain. How can a Dr. tell me that I'm not in pain? I have never been treated so badly by any Dr. in my life!
