Disaster.......!

Dr. Polishuk was ill prepared, lacked basic knowledge and offer no advise. He had the nerve to suggest a 3 month follow up visit.

Thankful patient

Dr. Polishuk was great. My primary care physician referred me to him after another urologist botched a surgical procedure performed 6 months earlier. His diagnosis was accurate and hew as easy to talk to, answering all my questions. I hope I never have to see a urologist again, but if I do I trust Dr. Polishuk. The only low grade was one rude nurse.

Phone message snafu

I have tried to reach Dr Polishuk's office 5 times in the last week. I always get an answering machine. One time I got a call back I missed- they left a message to call the same number that no one answers. I originally wanted to change my appointment so I could get advice on my prescriptions for Medicare insurance. I have missed that opportunity and would like info over the phone. A week and 1/2 later I still haven't gotten through.

Dr. P. is a top notch urologist!

I have nothing but the highest regard for Dr. Polishuk! He is one in a million! I trust him implicitly! He did my surgery and I have been to him several times for office visits. He is a skilled surgeon and I have the utmost confidence in him.
