    Excellent Doctor!!!!

    Dr. Pluenneke has been my doctor for over 10 years. He is a wonderful doctor and I would recommend him to anyone. He is kind and understanding. He is the best!

    Appears to be both knowledgeable and experienced working w/ cancer pts. Very fatherly and genuinely concerned w/ pt symptomatology and alleviating apprehension which may aggravate pt anxiety. A good listener who pays attn and remembers details of each case w/o undue prompting. I trust him and would not hesitate to recommend him or endorse his bedside manner and overall demeanour to another pt battling cancer. A straight shooter, but not an alarmist. Truly dedicated.

    I would tell people about Dr. Pluenneke because he is one of the best Drs I have ever had. He has incredible bed side manner and is very caring with his patients. I never leave his office confused, as he explains everything in simple understanding terminology. At every visit he compliments me on how I am progressing and how good I look. He is also very encouraging and takes his time. He very seldom hurries like most doctors I have been to. He gets an A+ in my grade book.
