I had a malignant tumor on my liver and Dr. Polk performed surgery on me and removed it plus my gall bladder. Thank God I didn't have to go through chemo or radiation therapy. He is a very skilled surgeon, professional and all around great person. The office staff and nurses are very professional and highly skilled in their professions also.
