Dr. Platon was very thorough, he took the time to explain the problems he was seeing that are causing my pain. He ordered an MRI and set up a follow up to go over the action we need to take to correct the problems and eliminate my pain. The staff was also very nice. The front office staff helped me better understand my cost and the part my insurance will be paying. The nurse was extremely nice and fully understood the pain I’m experiencing. I highly recommended Dr. Platon and his staff.

Friendly staff. I arrived for my appointment about 30 minutes early and was finished before my actual appointment time. Dr. Platon was friendly and explained the test and estimated results during the appointment.

I have some spinal damage, and root nerve damage. Dr. Platon was able to diagnose and help me immediately. He is very good at explaining the cause of my problem. He could explain the xrays in a way that was easy to understand. Some of the test scared me. Dr. Platon made them a lot less scary. I am lucky to have him as my doctor.

I couldn't have been happier with our experience in the Rockwall office. The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. Dr. Platon was wonderful to deal with...he answered all my questions and explained a pain management plan for me so I could get relief right away. I appreciate the physical therapy facility on site....it's very convenient and I like interacting with staff I've already met.

Dr. Platon exemplified excellent people skills and knowledge of his field. He clearly explained the results of my MRI and E-Ray, displayed on the computer, in a manner that was easy for me to understand. He also used the skeletal display in his office as part of the explanation.

Very impressed with how knowledgeable and genuinely caring Dr. Platon is. It was nice to not only have an initial consultation, but to also start getting the ball rolling immediately with a care plan and action that same day. It definitely made the 40 minute drive to Rockwall worth it! The only extremely upsetting and disappointing thing: there is no option for a payment plan. VERY upsetting when unemployed and billing is unwilling to work with you to help get the care you desperately need.
