Specialties

Dr. Frank D Polanco has the following 3 specialties

  • Occupational Medicine

    You might work with an occupational therapist when you’re injured or if you have a disability. They rehabilitate and assist patients with every day activities, such as eating, getting dressed, working and attending social events. This includes self-care, leisure and work-related activities that lead to increased independence and development. Their goal is to empower people to still live the life they want despite any physical, developmental, social and/or emotional issues they might face.

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Bring your Treating Doctor to this Quack.

I've had to see this guy 3 times in the last 15 years of my Work Comp Injury (which is a permanent injury, btw), & every time, he has lied his you know what off, & is clearly in bed with the Insurance Carrier. I wish I had known I could bring my Treating Doctor to my RME. This guy is a liar & a quack! Plain & simple. He has probably destroyed countless lives with his false determinations. I would even call him Evil, & I don't throw that around without just cause. Pray you do not get this guy as a DD! You will probably need a Lawyer.

ethics lacking

The Dr. goes through the motions without the sincerity. His evaluation of my condition was not in line with previous independent specialists. In short, I feel as though he slanted his report to fall in line with what the insurance carrier wanted to hear, despite the evidence.

This doctor is a moron! I had been treated in the ER and had MRI and CT scans with reports that described multiple things wrong with my spine and neck due to an auto accident.He refused to look at the scans/reports and instead ran his fingers down my spine and sent me home saying There were no problems at all.DO NOT RISK SEEING THIS DOCTOR!!!!!!!!!
