I've been a patient for over 20 years and I have never been disappointed in the care and advice that I have been given. Dr. Plavidal and I are partners in my care which is rare today. I give him my concerns and he explains my options and the pros and cons of each option. I have never felt rushed through an exam. His staff has been helpful and has made making my appointments and ordering tests easy and trouble free.

Dr. Plavidal has been my gynecologist since 1985 and has caringly delivered my son. He is a wonderful doctor who’s very kind and extremely thorough. He always take his time to address all my questions and concerns (even asks about my 21 year old son every time!) and is also very pleasant and compassionate. Thank you Dr. Plavidal for taking such good care of me and my family all these years!

Felt very relieved after I saw Dr. Plavidal. He understood my medical issues and offered evidence based treatment options. It was very reassuring that he really listened and wanted to help me meet my own health care goals.

You won't find a better physician. As a nurse, it is hard to please me but won't trust anyone else. Delivered by 2 boys and now menipausal. That should say it all. May wait a bit to see him but it is because he spends time with patients.
