Dr Randi Pleskow diagnosed my son with severe Crohn’s disease at the age of 12. She was kind, compassionate and always available to us, even while on vacation. Because of her vigilant care and follow up, my son was able to avoid surgical intervention for 10 years. The surgeon, one of the best, Dr. Brad Linden, was amazed. I am a health care professional, as well as a mother, and can not speak more highly of Dr. Pleskow and her team! She always went above and beyond to assist in my son’s care. We hated to leave BCH and our team. Thanks to all.

i took my daughter to Dr. Pleskow and was very happy with her care. She had been suffering with abdominal pain for months. She quickly found out what the problem was. She called me on the weekend to let me know so that we could start the treatment right away. I am so happy she is feeling better. Thank you Dr. Pleskow

I am shocked she is a pediatric doctor. She acted as if she had never been around a child before. We accomplished nothing during our appointment. It was a waste of our time. We switched to a new doctor after that appointment and got the answers we were seeking. Avoid her at all costs.

My experience was terrible! She was more concerned with gathering information to finish writing her progress note (such as what my husband and I do for work) than really taking the time to examine my daughter and assessing my concerns. Nothing was accomplished at the appointment. She was also super condescending and would cut me off as I was explaining my daughter's symptoms. Complete waste of my time and copayment!

Dr. Pleskow doesn't listen to the parents about the problems, it seems like she doesn't really care about her patients. I wouldn't take my kids to her again.

Dr Pleskow blew us off multiple times regarding my child's frequent vomiting lack of appetite constipation and fevers. She was condescending and wasn't concerned about my daughters medical problems. I finally took her to the hospital after she stated that he symptoms were viral for 5th time in 5 months. Not under recommendation but at my discretion I took her to the Er after one of many not helpful visits. Finally an abdominal X-ray was ordered by ER doc. 3 weeks of fecal matter found in Colon!!

After sharing our concerns with her fellow for 45 minutes, Dr. Pleskow came in after consulting about our daughter for less than 10 minutes. Her recommendations were completely different than the fellow who took the time to get to know us. She never even examined our daughter or consulted with us as parents. When she did meet with us, she was condescending. We went for medical advice and instead she provided parenting advice that was irrelevant to our visit. She made us feel like bad parents!
