Why should this person be nominated
What makes Dr. Poliskie a very exceptional and outstanding doctor is the warm-hearted greetings he gives me when I walk into his office. He makes a person feels more than at home. He has a heart that shows he cares about me beyond just being his patient.
Dr. P has a very distinct Southern drawl that makes you feel down home. He takes such a personal interest in you as a whole person that even if you’re in pain when you walk in his office, you almost forget all about it once you’re sitting with him because he has such a great laugh and a sense of humor. And I love it the way he says Hello darling with his accent from Deep South. And he always say "well darling you take care of yourself".
He's so thorough, never letting you leave until he is sure everything is checked and nothing is missed – he even figures out things that you might have forgotten to tell him about that were bothering you.
What I really appreciate is that he also make house calls to homebound seniors. Diligently taking care of the feet and ankles and their legs which is a hard thing for seniors to do when they get up in age - mobility is limited. Here is where Dr. Michael Poliskie steps in I think that is so touching. Having your podiatrist manage and take care of your feet and ankles in the privacy and comfort of your own home allows you to maintain your own mobility and dignity.. He should be recognized because he is so caring for the seniors.
