Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372.

I have not had a prostate exam in over a year. Dr P wrapped up our apt by saying "Is there anything else?" and I told him I needed a prostate exam since I am 67 and on testosterone and he gave me one. Should I have had to ask for one? Isn't this standard at least every year?

Dr. Polnaszek is very professional in his demeanor but does not appear to be rushed or in a hurry. I have never felt the sense of being pressured to turn over an exam room or clear out for the next person. I have had my questions answered by the doctor or one of his staff. I am grateful for the caring atmosphere and attitude of Dr. Polnaszek and the supporting staff.

Dr P is totally awesome. He guided me through a very traumatic time in my life during the treatment and recovery from prostate cancer. He always helped keep my spirits up and made me feel that I could conquer cancer and continues to restore me to some state of normalcy with testosterone treatment. He is the best. You have a keeper so treat him well.
