I had an orbital tumor that was growing aggressively. My primary referred me to another ophthalmologist, but after a couple of appointments, I did not feel confident in her action plan. She provided names of 2 other doctors if I wanted to get another opinion, one being Dr. Polonski. After a brief explanation of my situation on the phone, we scheduled for an appointment the following week, far sooner than I expected. Staff was very pleasant and made a good first impression. During the first appointment, Dr. Polonski reviewed the MRI and tests I already had conducted, and completed a thorough initial evaluation; he then ordered a CT scan and scheduled a follow-up appointment. During the followup appointment, he reviewed the CT scan results, and determined the best surgical approach was going to be a lateral orbitotomy. I was very anxious, but his genuine compassion and concern was calming. After realizing his comfort level with the procedure, I had the utmost confidence that he was the surgeon I wanted to remove the tumor; we scheduled the surgery. It is now 2 weeks post-op, and I couldn't be happier with his performance and the results. The scar is barely noticeable, the swelling is almost gone, and my vision has already improved. At the post-op followup, he reviewed the pathology report, and ended up calling the pathologist to discuss while I was in the office. She said that the results were benign and confirmed that he completely removed the tumor, just like he said. After the good news, I could see that he was genuinely happy, almost like I was a family member, and that is exactly why I knew he was the right choice for me. I am beyond pleased with the experience, which is why it is without hesitation that I fully recommend Dr. Polonski.
Dr. Polonski is possibly the best doctor I have ever seen. I had extensive facial trauma with several severe fractures, went to him for a second opinion, and wound up having him preform my reconstructive surgery. He was very clear in explaining how the procedure would go, managed to fit my surgery into his schedule on less than a week's notice, stopped by to see me when I was in post-op, and even came into the office on a weekend when it was closed because I needed to reschedule my follow-up appointment after surgery. He went above and beyond in every possible way. Words can't describe how grateful I am to him for basically putting half of my face back together.
