HORRIBLE DOCTOR! Mom is 89. We live in separate states. When I came in last year to accompany Mom to her doctor's appointments, etc. I knew something was wrong. In terms of Mom's cognitive abilities , Mom was going down hill. I am Mom's POA, & took her for a brain MRI Plaxe ordered which I later found revealed that Mom was in mild to moderate cog impairment, something Plaxe hid from me , after I returned home. Had this Dr. done her job, (physician do no harm) Plaxe would have given given Mom medication to delay the onset if dementia, but now a year later, thru new doctors, & the court of P.B. county, Mom has been found to be plenary incapacitated. In short, Mom has dementia with LATE onset of Altzheimers. Ironic, since during that appointment I went to with Mom to see Plaxe, though Plaxe took me aside to tell me to call her about Mom's failing memory, Plaxe denied me the MRI when I later requested it from Atlanta, & she neglected to diagnose Mom with dementia. SHAMEFUL!

This is not common to find in South Florida for your PCP. Most places it's in an out with no real exam. Dr Plaxe and her nurses are very thorough and focused on your general health. Because of this, sometimes the waits can be a little longer than anyone would really like, but considering the quality of care is so good, I really don't mind waiting at all (I find it better to schedule in advanced if you can and just get the first appointment of the day). From other reviews I've read, she is being noted as having poor bedside manner and doesn't look at you. She goes through your chart in great detail, asking questions along the way, so sometimes you're just sitting there as she fills everything out and reviews. Once you get to talking, she is very upfront and explains things in understandable detail. Bloodwork can be done in office, as can ultrasounds. MRI's and CT scans are available in the office next door. Very convenient!

Highly inappropriate Doctor!!! Completely, disengaged and lacks the basic ability to listen to the patient regarding medical issue. When brought to her attention she yells that she has a patient in the other room with chest pain. I honestly can’t imagine how this woman is a Dr.
