Patient Comments (2)
in Cicero ny |
I took my mother for a follow up of her shoulder. I observed this doctor to be very defensive and actually talked down to my 78 year old mother. On a prior visit that I was not present for he had told my mother that she had a bad attitude.

Thank you Dr. Pletka for taking the time to listen and diagnose that my issue required a spine surgeon. Your referral to Dr. Madom resolved my issue. I am greatful.
