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 !!
