I would like recommend Dr. Plosky because after not being able to breath normally through my nose for over a year he was able to find out what I had. He acted immediately and had a surgery with in weeks. Now, I'm able to breath normally thanks to Dr. Plosky.

I was diagnosed with throat cancer ,Dr. Plosky was very compassionate and had a good demeanor of the whole prognosis . I would recommend him anyone with a similar situation,after all he did save my life,he put in touch with Mercy hospital staff and ran with everything from there,it was aggressive but needed to done.

Dr. Plosky performed a 12 hr. surgery on my husband for oral cancer. Complications during the surgery required Dr. Plosky and his team to make alternative decisions that I believe were nothing short of amazing. My husband is now a cancer survivor. His office staff is professional and I found him to be not only skilled but comfortable to talk to and ask questions. We never felt rushed during office visits and communication for follow up appointments have been thorough and pleasant.

Dr. Plosky treated my husband on June 2, 2016 he had to have a test. The Dr. explained everything he was going to do ,and what to expect. When the test was over Dr. Plosky told us what was going on. We were very happy with the Dr. and the staff. Will surely return. Highly recomended! Mr & Mrs Paul Ludlow Ma.

Dr. Plosky and his staff have treated me with the upmost respect, patience and friendliness. He not only answered all of my questions he answered all of my families questions without hesitation. The doctors knowledge and professionalism is only surpassed by his patience. He spent as much time as I needed so I felt comfortable that I had the knowledge to make sound decisions in my treatment.

The doctor was very friendly and so was office staff. Was in for a visit for a child and was very patient.
in Enfield, CT |
I never felt rushed in any way as I have with other doctors. Dr. Plosky spent enough time to fully explain the diagnosis and my options to deal with the condition. He is professional, yet friendly and honestly caring.
in Springfield, MA |
Had to see another doctor after Dr. Plosky treated my ear infection with white vinegar and water and it got much worse.
