The diagnosis Dr. Ploss gave me delayed the best treatment plan I could have received. I ended up went to ER and had a pace making put in. I would rather go cardiologist in Santa Rosa or in Bay area in the future.

We waited 40 minutes to be seen with no apology from the staff or Dr. Ploss. He apparently did not have time for my father while repeatedly interrupted his complaints of dizziness. We understand it is the end of the day, however we drove hours to see him! Will not come back at all!

He has been right with his diagnosis from the beginning. Worth the drive to Garberville!
