Probably competent …

… but D+ in bedside manner. Condescending and abrupt. Requiring the services of a urologist is bad enough. This guy exacerbates the unpleasantness with his attitude. That said, I found no reason to question his technical competence.

We are grateful to Dr. Polascik for his guidance during a time when prostate ca was considered devastating...it turned out with his careful diagnostic assessment and treatment modality choices we had other options than radical surgery. He is thoughtful, respectful and caring and not afraid to be honest. I am glad he serves the community well and he is an asset to Duke.
