Absolutely love Dr. Plimpton! Very caring and thorough during every visit. If it weren’t for him doing ultrasounds every visit we might not have noticed that my baby stopped growing. He’s the best!

Around 12pm he broke my water and I dilated 5cm they upped my pitocin and my contractions came in so strong that I stayed at a constant for hours no dilation and be refused to give me an epidural. I ended u

He always takes the time to ask questions about my health and answer my questions. He even asks if my husband is getting the tests he needs for his age.

Dr. Plimpton is very friendly and thorough. Every time I've been there I've never felt like my appointment was rushed or timed. I've been with his client for 4 years now.

He basically delivered my son and walked out. I never saw him again. I don't know how he has so many good reviews because my experience left a lot to be desired. Being pregnant again I'm thankful I found another doctor because I would never use Dr. Plimpton again.
