He has been excellent in explaining my situation & the options I have to treat my current condition. Dr. Polnaszek gave me a 3rd option o"Watchful Waiting or Observing" in addition to the previously prescribed option by a different healthcare business. Those previous options were surgery or radiation.

When trying to schedule an appt with Dr. Polnaszek, I was informed that he was booked up for a month or so. However, the scheduler managed to find me an appointment date much earlier. During my visit with Dr. Polnaszek, he appeared nothing like the very busy, rushed practitioner I had envisioned. I almost felt guilty regarding the time he spent with me, addressing all concerns, answering all my questions, helping me to understand and explore treatment options. I left his office with an overwhelming sense that this person truly cares about my health and my concerns.

With everything going on in our country the last thing I wanted was to make a major decision about my health. Dr. P made it easy. He was kind, charismatic and approached the issues with knowledge and sensitivity. I left the facility feeling so much better and more confident that I had made the right decision with my physicians help. I will recommend him and Baylor Scott and White.
