Patient Comments (1)

Dr Plocher has since moved to Minneapolis. I saw her for a consultation about removing a large mass on my forearm. Although I had a lot of confidence in her, she elected to refer me to someone with more experience. I found her to be very knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic.
