I really can't say enough about Dr Plankeel. He not only saved my life, he gave me hope. He started me on a new drug for my heart to help my arteries pump blood better which would be an asset to my weak lungs. I am doing things I use to enjoy again. There is no other doctor for me. He is very patient and listens to you and he truly cares. His staff is the best and caring people. It's ALL GOOD ??
