What People Say About Dr. Ferdinand Plecha, MD
Reply Flag
Dr. Plecha is fantastic. I was in emergency at SW General. I saw him at 12:15pm and was on the operating table at 5:30 pm. He saved my life. I had an 80+ blockage in my left carotid artery. I left the hospital two days later feeling great, and no pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Plecha.
