Dr Plakas was fantastic. My son fractured his arm in a bike accident and Dr Plakas met us in the emergency room. He treated us with patience and professionalism and helped expedite our discharge so our son can recover at home. Follow-up office visit were a breeze. Minimal to no wait time in a very pleasant experience overall

Dr. Plakas went above and beyond when it came to helping and treating my son. I am very appreciative for what he has done and I would recommend him to any parent needing a knowledgeable and caring doctor. He took a very high stress situation and completely put me at ease.

We had a great experience with Dr. Plakas when my son broke his arm. He called backed within moments of my call to him, read my sons x rays while on the phone and was able to see him right away. He was kind, patient and honest about how certain manipulations would feel, so much so, that my son looked forward to going to see him and was upset when Dr. Plakas said he didn’t need anymore follow-up visits.

I highly recommend Dr Plakas. He was prompt to respond and available to answer my questions. He actually made a house call on a Saturday to fit my son with a boot to save us a five minute office visit. It’s refreshing to see a physician respectful of your time. He treated my son for a previous injury. I was happy with the care he provided that time as well.

Dr. Plakas is highly recommended by my pediatrician, (and my 9 year old daughter). Dr. Plakas made the experience so pleasant for my daughter. He paid attention to her input, and helped her understand her treatment plan. She came in with tears, and left with a smile (and a cast).

This was our second experience with Dr. Plakas. After getting our son back on track after breaking his leg in 2016, Dr. Plakas was unbelievably accessible and went out of his way to help our son after sustaining a severe shoulder injury in 2017. Although this was not his area of expertise, he walked with us to assist in finding a great surgeon, and even checked with us before and after his surgery to check on his recovery. I can’t praise Dr. Plakas enough for his kindness, care and compassion.

Dr. Plakas treated my 5yr. Old daughter for a broken pinky, initially in the emergency room, It was her first broken anything. Dr. Plakas used both compassion and patience when treating her. He answered All of our questions and took his time to meet my daughter at her comfort level. She immediately trusted him and he made the entire procedure look effortless, she also remained pain free throughout it. We had our follow visits at his office, where the staff is just as amazing as he is!

Dr Plakas did a great job treating my son's leg. He came to the ER within 30 minutes of getting our xrays and went over everything with my husband and I. He explained it all clearly and answered all our questions. It was a scary night but he put us both at ease. We were nervous but he said my son would be OK and now he's back to basketball and 100%. Very honest and trustworthy, I would let him take care of any of my kids and fully recommend him to anyone who needs an orthopedist. Thank you Dr!
