How was your experience with the doctor?I had an incredibly efficient and effective visit with Doc P when I was experiencing severe pain in my wrist in December. He was a pleasure to deal with, asked poignant questions on my symptoms, and gave me a succinct diagnosis and prognosis withing a few short minutes of my meeting him. Highly recommend his services for anyone with moderate to severe wrist issues in NYC.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Polatsch is a fantastic doctor that I would recommend anytime. He was honest, trustworthy, and was great to work with in order to repair a ligament in my thumb. I would use him again!
