Cheryl Polkowski, MD, is a board-certified family medicine physician at UT Health East Texas Physicians in Henderson. From a very young child, Polkowski had always wanted to be doctor. “As early as the age of five, I would go with my siblings and mom to the doctor’s office so I could watch and ask questions.”
Polkowski enjoys treating families, especially several generations and relatives. “I treat my patients as if they are family. Imagining that they are my own family members and treat them like I would want my family to be treated and what I would recommend.”
Polkowski’s personal hobbies include watching sports, riding motorcycles and working out.
