Dr. Polling and his nurse did a tremendous job getting me in, checked out, set up with my medications, and on my way. Dr. Poling is always very thorough- but works quickly at the same time- a balance that he has seemingly mastered, and it always results in the most efficient visits possible. The nurse who checked me in (not sure of his name) he was a breath of fresh air! He was a tall, witty, and and charming way to start my visit, and so really liked him a lot. Dr Poling and his staff are simply the bestbetter than ALL the rest! :-)

Have been good with Dr Poling. He takes the time to listen and comes up with a plan for me to move forward with. Gets me referred to where I need if needed. His office did a follow up call with me after my office visit after coming out of the hospital. Nice how they checked to see how I was and if I needed anything. Thank you guys for everything

I feel very lucky that Dr. Polling is my primary. He is very knowledgeable, attuned to all new and the oft-used medications available, clearly identifies and suggests reachable goals for continued good health, and one easily concludes after one's visit to be in the very safe hands of an expert in the field of medicine. Thank you, Dr. Polling.
