Testimonials from patients of Dr. Poliak
Dr. Poliak, thank you for your caring approach to my health. You always take the time I need for you to discuss my situation. When I was in extreme pain with my back, you answered your cell and assisted me getting the care I needed. When I need help, you are there...every time. thank you.
Just before Christmas, my sister (not Dr. Poliak's patient) had serious complications from gall bladder surgery and was calling me to see if she could be transferred from Corpus Christi to Houston. I called Dr. Poliak to see if he could help me get my sister moved, but he was in Belize on vacation. But he texted me anyway in response to my concern and connected me with another surgeon… See more

In May 2018 I returned to Dr. Poliak for my annual physical. He immediately found a lump in my neck and sent me off for an MRI and biopsy. Yup, cancer. And a few weeks later he coordinated my surgery with MDAnderson Cancer Center’s extraordinary Head and Neck Team. Thanks to early discovery, quick diagnosis and outstanding treatment, I’m a cancer survivor and most thankful patient of Dr.… See more
