I have been seeing Dr. Placentra most of my life. Until I switched doctors, i never knew that doctors would actually listen to my problems and try to find the real reason for my illness. Dr. Placentra will throw antibiotics at you without even blinking and is always checking his watch for time. He is disrespectful and even walked out on me one time because I asked him why he wouldn't try to find out whats really wrong with me or even point me in the direction of where to go, like a specialist.
