First, Dr. Poladian is a very busy doctor and an intelligent man. I went to him one time because my normal doctor books 4 to 6 weeks in advance. With Dr. P I can go in within the week. However, his prices are through the roof and he is quite late (1 to 1 1/2hrs late past assigned appointment) even when you have an appoint. I had to make a second trip to him because I had a terrible reaction of hives to a medication he prescribed (and I don't know whether or not he knew there was a chance of me getting this reaction). I was in incredible pain and discomfort. I made an another appointment with him to get rid of the adverse reaction to my medicine. (Barely was able to afford that visit.] I cannot afford to make him my general doctor because if I make an appointment at 11 am, I will be lucky if he is there by 1pm and I'll be spending a lot of my paycheck at his office. This is wrong (in my opinion. I don't feel like I should be feeding his porche's gas. But if I need him and I can't get to my regular doctor, I will go to him. I hope not to get sick again for a LONG time. I just can't afford him. He is very smart and specializes in many areas and probably charges a lot because of that. Again, if need be, I'll go to him. He is quite smart. But time and money just have to be something I'm rolling in.

Uncomfortable Experience

I went to this doctor last year and had the most uncomfortable experience I've ever had in a doctor's office. To be honest, he was a nice person and relatively professional as was his staff. I liked that he took time to meet with me before and after the exam to talk. The way he disrobed me in a less-than-modest manner make me uncomfortable. It was like he was staring at my body and judging me rather than giving me a medical examination. I've been to several gynecologists as I move a lot and I'm not an insecure person. Afterwards, I really wished I hadn't gone to him. It seems that many women like him but for me, it was creepy and weird.

Don't waste your time!! dont recomend this dr at all!!

I found Dr. Poladian from the internet, he was very closed from my house,so i decided to try him. I called to make an app the first question was if he deliver babys? and they said yes. I had a good insurance 100% cover but his assistant/secretary charged me more copays and send wrongs procedures to my insurance just to collect more money. After 8 months when i started doing questions about my labor day he told me he don't Delivery!! so they lie to me all the time just to charge my insurance all my pregnancy, I felt so bad because i really thougth Dr. Poladian really care about me and my baby... please don't waste your time!! don't go to this DR!! try to find another person who cares about your baby and no the money! good luck!!
