He was the only doctor (and I went to several) that was able to figure out what was wrong with me and put me on a treatment plan that worked for me. I really don't know what I would have done without him!

I've had an enlarged prostate for 15 years and have been under the care of 3 other urologists. Dr Ploch has been the best by far.

He is extra careful and concerned about making any procedures as pain free as possible; His office is very pleasant and the staff are all tremendously friendly. Who could ask for anything more?
