Dr. Ploch's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ploch "To me, radiation oncology is fascinating. It's such a complex treatment method. When I was in medical school and saw the results of surgery compared to radiation -it seemed to offer such a great treatment alternative. Half of the patients who come to NorthBay, with any type of cancer, benefit from radiation, often in conjunction with surgery and chemotherapy. I treat patients age 18 and above. I don't treat patients like patients. I treat them like people. I really enjoying meeting them and getting to know their story. My patients say that I'm a good communicator. I like to explain things in detail. After an appointment with me, I want patients to feel less fearful and more relaxed than when they came in. Patients are afraid about the affects of radiation and the potential side effects. I'm here to help answer any questions and alleviate fears. I see about 30 patients a day, but I communicate with them on a one-to-one basis. It's natural for me to do this. Patients don't feel like a number when they are in my office. I don't have a typical day, but I spend a lot of time helping patients understand their radiation oncology treatment and plan. My favorite part about my job is when someone comes into my office and tells me they are in remission. Outside of work, my wife and I enjoy gardening and walking our dog."
