I had a dizziness problem for over 3 months and with one visit I feel so much better. He took the time to explain to me what was going on and gave me great information going forward. I highly recommend Dr. Pflug as a knowledgeable ENT with a caring bedside manner.

Great with my kids! The staff is friendly (which is sometimes hard to come by), and he keeps to a schedule. Very knowledgeable, and takes time with his patients.
