After being with Dr Plunkett for over 3 years it is time to switch Cardiologist. I have been seen by this Dr once, when I visited him for the first time. After this I have never been able to see him, even appointment was set up with the Dr. Only saw PA's and it this time it is the 3rd PA. The all were ok but if I have a visit scheduled with a Dr, ad happened my last 3 appointments, no Dr ever present. Explanation by staff : Oh we did not know you wanted to see a DR. I have had 2 Open Heart Surg

Dr. Plunkitt is an outstanding cardiologist. He is thorough, patient, and extremely kind...all rare qualities in today's hustle and bustle in the medical field. Because of his expertise, I am alive today and on my third pacemaker/defibrillator. You may have to wait for an appointment. But I assure you, you will be completely satisfied with the service you receive from his staff...clerical and medical. Thank you for not giving up on getting me to go on a blood thinner. It only took six years

Dr. Plunkitt is amazing; his non clinical staff and the hoops you have to jump through are often frustrating. However, working with Dr. P. is worth dealing with the rest of the less than stellar admin staff.
Hi, I would like to Thank you for your rating. If you could, contact my Office Clinical Coordinator directly so that we can specifically address your issues and work with you to improve on our service. Her name is Jori Richardson and she can be reached at the office number (239) 263-0849 ext. 313. Thank you, Dr. Plunkitt

Dr. Plunkitt says...

A native of Freeport, Long Island, New York, I moved to Florida while in my teens. I graduated from the University of South Florida College of Medicine in 1993 and subsequently completed my Internal Medicine residency and General Cardiology fellowship at the University of South Florida affiliated hospitals and clinics in Tampa, Florida.  During this time I received Board Certification in Internal Medicine.

I accepted a two year fellowship in Cardiac Electrophysiology with the Jefferson University program at the Lankenau campus in the Mainline, Philadelphia. This intensive training experience included all aspects of cardiac arrhythmia management including pharmacologic management of cardiac arrhythmias, ablation techniques, pacemaker and defibrillator implantation as well as laser lead extraction.

Following my training I returned to Florida in 2001 to establish a private practice limited specifically to Cardiac Electrophysiology. I currently maintain a consultative practice with an emphasis on implantation and interventional arrhythmia management. 

I am Board Certified in Cardiology and Cardiac Electrophysiology and a member of the American Medical Association, the Heart Rhythm Society, the American College of Cardiology and the American College of Physicians. I have been recognized for my contributions in electrophysiology and awarded the prestigious designation as a Fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society.  I also serve on several hospital and community boards and committees and have been named as one of Gulf Shore Life Magazine's 2012 Top Doctors.
