Testimonials - Patient Comments
Dr. Plastaras is awesome! He is a kind, attentive listener. His staff was wonderful and gentle, and created a comforting experience. I would recommend him to anyone!
I was so impressed by the thoroughness of Dr. Plastaras’ physical examination and by how much time he took to listen to me explain my medical history, review my test results, and answer my many questions. After months of uncertainty about what has been going on in my body and after a few encounters with other doctors who were more hurried and dismissive, my positive experience with Dr. Plastaras was so refreshing. He also did a wonderful job explaining my neck issues to me in a way that made sense and prescribing a path forward. Many thanks!
Dr. Plastaras is an exceptional doctor. His manner his knowledge, his skill in listening and thinking rather than just ordering tests makes him an exceptional physician. In addition, he is kind and thorough.
