Dr. Plata is the caring doctors we use to see. Very caring and listens to your concerns. You feel like a patient and not just a number. He doesn't make you feel rushed and addresses your concerns. So remember, the day you wait a little longer to be seen; our Doctor is most likely listening to a concerned patient and the next time it may be you that need to be heard. Dr. Plata Thank You for bringing back good old personable doctors the kind that heals your body and spirit!

Dr. Plata was extremely thorough addressing all of my concerns and discussed in detail my treatment options so I could make an informed decision. His medical office staff are amazing as well! Ms Jeanne went above and beyond in helping me with appointment issues and Chantel was very kind, welcoming, and attentive while taking my vitals and preparing my paperwork for Dr. Plata.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave...Read More
I waited until my Mom passed to write this. She passed on 02.01.2021. My Mom loved Dr. Plata. I was skeptical when he began with the Northeast Internal Medicine Group in Live Oak, TX My hunch was correct. Dr. Plata, admittingly, doesn't have time to respond to patient concerns via the Health Portal. His MA doesn't respond in a timely manner. I never had a poor doctor/patient relationship until my mom started seeing Dr. Plata in 10.2021. My mother needed hospice care & I pleaded to get some help and it wasn't until I, myself, went into the office, to get the referral ball rolling. All during this time Dr. Plata had time for a TV Interview & an interview with the City of LIve Oak for their Monthly Magazine. Clearly, his patients aren't his priority.

Dr Plata didn’t even examine me. I was ambulated to the emergency room less than 24 after seeing this incompetent doctor. Thanks for not treating me.
