Dr. Plante's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Plante "Dr. Deborah Plante completed her fellowship at the University of Virginia (UVA) followed by one year of practice in Fredericksburg, VA. She then moved to California and has worked for Mercy Medical Group for the past ten years. During her last two years at Mercy Medical Group, Dr. Plante served as the physician champion for The Diabetes Care Team as well as the physician champion for diabetes at Mercy San Juan (MSJ) hospital. Her work at the clinic involved setting up a gestational diabetes program, writing diabetes materials, expansion of staff including hiring a nurse practitioner and program director to help primary care manage their diabetic population. At the hospital, she was involved in a glycemic control initiative, teaching and implementing new insulin protocols to physicians and nurses. Dr. Plante has given numerous lectures for both the community and physicians. Sun City Lincoln Hills and Dignity Health Day of Dance in Folsom hosted her lectures on type 2 diabetes and diabetes prevention. She also spoke at the American Association of University Women on thyroid disorders. Physician lectures included inpatient diabetes management at Grand Rounds MSJ hospital and new therapies in diabetes at Mercy Medical Group. Deborah has also been involved with the local Taking Care of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) convention. Dr. Plante treats all endocrine disorders, including thyroid conditions and thyroid cancer, women's health, adrenal and pituitary disorders, type 1 diabetes with special interest in pump and continuous glucose monitoring and type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome pre-diabetes and obesity. She has a passion for preventive medicine and health maintenance. Her area of research at UVA partnered her with an exercise physiologist and incorporated PCOS, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease and diabetes prevention. Dr. Plante lives in Granite Bay with her husband and two children and is active in the community with both Boys Team Charity and American Diabetes Association (ADA). She is especially excited to be starting the first Walk with a Doc program in Sacramento. In her spare time, Deborah enjoys cooking, running, skiing and traveling with her family."

Patient Comments (11)
in Citrus Heights, CA |
Dr. Plante has been my endocrinologist since 2007, and I'd give her 10 stars if I could. She and her entire team are thoroughly professional and extraordinarily competent -- and yet compassionate and understanding. I like Dr. Plante's "multi-approach" to diabetes care and management offered by her associates, a wonderful health coach and a diabetes educator. I'm very fortunate to be their patient. The staff is friendly and efficient, too.
Aptos, CA |
I already have recommended Dr. Plante to some of my T1D friends because of her ability to assess my trends and communicate my needs in a respectful and understandable way.
in Granite Bay, CA |
Dr. Deborah Plante is a perfect example of a "Great Medical Care Provider". With a combination of intelligence and understanding, Dr. Plante hits it out of the park! If you truly want healing and wellness this is the place to go. Not only is her personal bar on the highest rung, but her staff is equally devoted to your well-being. Dr. Plante's approach is "State of the Art" spot on and her techniques of treatment are cutting edge current. I am so thankful to have such a great team on my side.
Chico, CA |
I had the worst doctor appt of my life with Plante. I have had a host of complex hyppgonadatropic problems with no proper care, drove 100+ miles, & I was very excited to get into Plante after reading these great reviews, but nothing about my experience was good. I was judged, receive zero compassion, not heard, rushed, talked over, told she got started late & in a hurry, blamed for not having syntoms that "made sense." Absolute worst from the 1st 3 minutes, seeming stressed, hostile, & arrogant.
Rocklin, CA |
Exceptional doctor who communicates clearly, answers all your questions and is very personable.
in Paradise, CA |
Dr. Plante is the third Endocrinologist that I have seen in the past six years. Her practice is lightning years above my experiences up to now. Her office facilities are large and exceptionally clean. A K cup coffee machine with a selection of coffees and reading materials are there for patients use. Dr. Plant is very professional and pleasant. She is a good listener. Her treatment has had a huge positive impact on my diabetes. Her entire staff is professional and delightful. Five star!
Orangevale, CA |
Dr. Plante has given me my life back. Diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic 20 years ago at the age of 38, my diabetes was not controlled. I started seeing Dr. Plante approximately 3 years ago, and I will be forever grateful to her for getting me on track. She is a kind, caring person and is very devoted in helping her patients with this insidious disease.
in Sacramento, CA |
Dr. Plante has been terrific. I don't have a single complaint or any constructive feedback. She is easy to get an appointment with. She has a brand new office and young staff that are pleasant and helpful. Dr. Plante is very knowledgeable and explains treatment options, side effects, pros and cons. She's a great listener and flexible in her treatments based on patient preference. She gave me options and also what plan B is if 1st choice doesn't work as hoped.
El Dorado Hills, CA |
When I moved to Sacramento I was nervous to find an "Endocrinologist" who actually understands "Type 1" diabetes. When I met Dr. Plante I knew right away, SHE GETS IT. I was so impressed with her thoroughness in regards to my CGM and pump, her office downloaded all 3 of my devices so she could see the whole picture. The office staff was friendly and courteous and you don't feel like "just a number". Her approach to my care felt individualized and thoughtful.
in Davis, CA |
Dr. Plante is an exemplary Endocrinologist, with an exceptional bedside manner, she is kind and patient, no matter the complexity of the case she takes the time and approach necessary to help her patient. I have been waiting patiently for her new practice to open, I would recommend Dr. Plante to my family, friends, acquaintances in a heartbeat!
in Greater Sacramento Area |
Dr. Plante is an outstanding Endocrinologist. I've been in her care several years. I have nothing negatively critical to write about her stellar competence, exemplary professionalism, and excellent examination table-side manner. She recently exited from her employer to go into private practice. If she accepts my healthcare insurance carriers, I fully intend to have my records transferred to her new office.
