I must commend the medical center as a whole for its commitment to providing exceptional care. The facility was clean, well-organized, and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. It was evident that the X Ray staff, including Dr. Polkowski with their assistant treated patients with the utmost respect and compassion, as if Dr is my part of my personal family.

Like I said the whole visit from the doctor's office. To the lab at the hospital. Was as pleasant as going to the doctor can be. EVERYONE made you feel like they were genuinely concerned.
