Patient Comments (8)
in South Lyon, MI |
Dr.Placzek explained everything, from the extent of my fractured finger, and the steps it would take to get it back in working order. Very patient and your well being is his only concern. I am extremely grateful that I was referred to him and his great staff and Darren (in PT Department).

After having a question about billing practices, I received the absolute rudest letter offering me "a brief tutorial on medical billing" and insinuating that I didn't want to pay my bill. I was simply questioning the fact that they charged me $805 for a "surgery" when I only had a 15min visit with the doc. An explanation at time of service would have been helpful...especially since they charged an additional office visit fee for that visit.
in Lapeer, MI |
Dr. Placzek and his P.A. have taken very good care of me after breaking my wrist. They take the time to explain everything and exams are very thorough. Excellent bedside manner. I'm a competitive powerlifter and I always shop around for "top notch" docs. I drive almost 1.5 hours to see Dr. Placzek. I highly recommend him.
in Howell, MI |
After suffering with a frozen shoulder and attending PT for 3 months, I was recommended to see Dr. Placzek about a shoulder manipulation. Dr. Placzek was welcoming, knowledgeable, and a miracle worker. I had very little discomfort after the procedure and gained an amazing range of motion, mobility and much less pain quickly after the procedure. I wish I would have seen him earlier, but I would definitely trust him with my care again.
in Livonia, MI |
Dr. Placzek is amazing, I loved the way he talked directly to my 15 year old son and made him feel at ease and comfortable. He has a great bed side manner and did a fantastic job repairing my sons broken finger tip where the bone was exposed and the nail bed destroyed. I would highly recommend him to anyone with hand/wrist issues, I have already told my Mom she has to see him because she's been suffering severe hand pain from an old injury.
Sterling Heights, MI |
Office visit with the doctor was good. Trying to resolve billing issues with his office is a big pain since they outsource all billing to a company in India. Needed to appeal claim with BC/BS since their office refused to deal with any billing questions. Office staff is not particularly friendly.
in Howell, Mi |
Out of all the specialist and surgeons my family has been under the care of in our lives, we have never come across a doctor with such an amazing bedside manor. Dr. Placzek communicates on a level his patients can understand and leave feeling comfortable upon leaving. From start to finish we couldn't have been more impressed. Thank you Dr. Placzek.

Jeff is pretty good, but his partner Guiboux is a hack.
