Milner, GA |
Have seen the p.a. As I was told you have to see her first. Have serious pain and can't get in to see him. Was told the p.a. Could do epidermals??? I don't think so.
in Griffin, Ga |
I have been seeing dr Ploska for 30 yrs for all types of problems he is excellent, I highly recommend him and any of his staff particular Lisa Sims NPA
in Mcdonough, GA |
Had a bad lower back for about 20 years had 2 back operations from other orthopedic surgeons Then found out about Dr. Ploska had surgery in Dec 2015 Have no back pain now incredible This Dr. knows what he is doing.
in Atlanta, GA |
I was referred to Dr. Ploska by my general doctor to be evaluated for my back and neck problems. He was thorough and very knowledgeable of all of my conditions, one of which I did not know I had which was a problem with my right sacroiliac joint. Will have it fused in the future. I have a broken back with a fusion and laminectomy. Also, my cervical spine was severely degenerated and he addressed this first. I had a fusion with 3 discs replaced and am healing great. I highly recommend him.
New York, NY |
Very very bad people. They are more interested in taking your money than anything else. I would never recommend .
in Griffin |
I had a great experience with him.
in Hampton, GA |
He has done two surgical procedures on me, one being spinal fusion. Every time I have gone to the office he knows who I am and treats me like a friend. I've come to consider him one. He is good at what he does and he has a great bedside manner. When there is something that needs to be discussed with you, HE calls you, not one of his assistants. I highly recommend him.
