Silver Spring, MD |
I've been seeing Dr. Polam for years and have been satisfied up until 2017. I needed a prior authorization for a medicine in which the doctor/ office needed to speak with my insurance. I tried for weeks to have them complete this task -many phone calls, multiple in person visits. Needless to say, never got my medicine with the help of my primary care that I have had my whole adult life. As a result, I don't feel safe relying on them for extremely important matters.

Dr. Polam is very caring, intelligent, and an excellent physician. She is a good diagnostician - something essential for a primary care physician. Her team is small but works to be responsive. I recommend Dr. Polam as a reliable, capable family practitioner.
Have a had a poor experience with my family member. She has been ill and febrile for over a week, without any work up done to identify the source of infection. Today when we called Dr. Polam- she responds "what do you want me to do?" "You're not special, or my only patient." F-

She caught early signs of Lymphoma and probably saved my life. Instead of being rushed in and pit of her office, a prompt appointment arrival often ensures that I'll get a full service appointment, where my questions are answered and my needs are met.

Love her follow-up with patients.
in Upper Marlboro, MD |
Dr. Polam has been my doctor for over 15 years. She is straight forward and has the need to want to know, always. Her goal is to make me healthy and keep me that way.
