What People Say About Dr. K Platnick, MD
Reply
Dr Platnick saved my life. I had a very difficult colonoscopy because of my obesity. Dr Platnick, partner physicians and his support staff pulled me through a difficult recovery. I was a difficult patient at best but they stuck with me and I am forever grateful.
