Reviews of Dr. Polyak:
All of the posts from “Annonymous UC” are from ulcerative colitis people who anonymously submitted stories or Doctor Reviews, medication, supplement reviews etc… I post all these stories to the site, but they’re different from my own personal stories so hopefully this account makes more sense:) -Adam – founder of iHaveUC.com

Dr. Polyak only deals with patients that have UC or Crohns. It can be kind of tricky scheduling an appointment with him being that he is really the only doctor in the area that is strictly a Ulcerative Colitis and Crohns doctor, but it is defiantly worth the wait because he is a great doctor. He is a very good listener and is the most thorough doctor I have ever had. The only problem I have ever had with his office is his nurse and who ever else answers his phone, they don't seem to be the greatest at relaying messages.
I have received care from Dr. Polyak for over two years. I have found that he is knowledgeable, experienced, respectful, and a good listener. I have had colonoscopies and two flexsigs with him.
His office has a dedicated pharmacist who comes right into the sessions to explain medication, supplements, and makes suggestions on when to use the medication. I have found this to be an excellent service.
Dr. Polyak’s Office is located in the University of Iowa Hospital and clinics, Center for digestive diseases. I have found that the staff in the center is very professional.
I too have had some difficulty with Dr. Polyak’s nurse not returning phone calls. Sometimes I have had to call and speak to a receptionist who then finds the nurse or one of the nurses within the center who then calls me back. This has happened about five times in the past two years.
I would highly recommend Dr. Polyak is an exceptional G.I.
