Dr. Plakas is wonderful. He takes the time to show you what is happening, and explains what he sees, and what he recommends. Truly has the best bedside manner of any doctor or surgeon I have had to deal with in the last couple of years.

Dr. Plakas is very thorough in explaing things. He takes the time and does not down talk to patients. I feel very comfortable with his care and would highly recommend him to others. His ARNP Debra is just as awesome. Both made me very cared for not like I was just another number.
