Dr. Polk provides confidential, non-judgmental consultation and assistance for those wishing to explore their options in managing short and long term disability leaves.  She is especially interested in the evaluation and treatment of poly-drug and prescription drug abuse, recognizing the absence of sensitive services available to older, “pseudo-addicted” patients.
