After being diagnosed with breast cancer I was scared to death. Upon meeting Dr. Ploch who performed 2 surgeries on me in a matter of 8 days he completely put my mind at ease. I honestly can say he has made my journey bearable. He explains everything in detail, what to expect, draws diagrams so you know exactly what he is going to do, he leaves nothing to question. I was truly blessed with this outstanding surgeon and if I have to have any more this will be the man to do it.

Dr Ploch is my doctor as well as a few family members as well. He is so good at explaining all the details of surgery to the patient even down to drawing diagrams out for you to visualize! I requested him for my most recent surgery because of the experience my family members had. His bedside manner is incredible also. And the best part, when he called with my pathology report he greeted me with “I have good news for you” on the phone. The little things like that mean so much. Highly recommend h

I have only seen him once . I am getting ready to see Dr. Ploch a lot more this month. He came highly recommended by a few of my good friends. Dr.Ploch was very nice and answered all our questions. The best part he spent the time with us didn't seem the need to rush out to other patients, loved that !!

I had a Wonderful experience with Dr. Ploch. He is very nice and caring to what I had to say, genuinely concerned with how I felt and was concerned. Explained everything in detail in a very good way for me to understand, and not bad looking on the eyes.
