Barb - Neuropathy Patient
Diabetes has caused neuropathy, which is a deadening of the nerve endings and they become very sensitive to the air. I was a barefooted person and I started to have to wear socks and I really should have been wearing shoes but I wore socks. Dr. Polansky, I started coming to him and he gave me meds, he checks my feet regular. He checks the pulse, they do a test then also that checks the nerve damages and he does that on a regular basis. It’s more widespread than just every office call comes every few months. Dr. Polansky has helped them when I have had an ulcer or anything. He has seen me regular on a regular basis and he never lets it go too far, he’s there as soon as I call, he has me in here and he starts working with me. He’s helped the neuropathy a lot. I also have it in my hands. I take a med for a prescription that he regularly gives me and it has helped a lot. It’s just in the overall, the diabetes helps as long as I can keep my blood sugar down and keep it going and I do my part and Dr. Polansky, it makes his job a lot easier. I have been coming to him for numerous years to Dr. Polansky and I just really, I have a lot of faith in not just Dr. Polansky, but also his staff, they are all very good. I am just very happy with what Dr. Polansky has been able to do for the neuropathy.
