Incredible experience. Guy expects upfront payment and tells you all about his problems. Like most MDs, his only concern is $$$$. Brazen is an understatement. Saw another Dr who was nice. B ut good is unknown.

I had a colonoscopy two days ago and the service was excellent! As a retired RN, who worked in the hospital setting, I've had tons of Dr. Pleva's patients and there was never a problem after they had a colonoscopy from Dr. Pleva. Reviews state he doesn't have good bedside manner, he just isn't a gabby physician. Personally, I don't care what his bedside manners are, it's how well he does his job. Office staff also great!

Dr. Pleva's office apparently waited until the last minute before sending a referral to my primary's office. I had already starting my fasting and was minutes away from drinking my prep when I discovered my colonoscopy wasn't going to happen. Totally upsetting and unacceptable!

Unless you need a colonoscopy, are bleeding, or have gall stones, there is nothing he will do. Staff was awesome but he was short with everything and didn't seem like he cared.
