I've had two surgeries done by Dr. Plummer and he has done a great job. Very professional and knowledgeable. I was very scared when I found out I needed two surgeries, but he put my concerns to rest and made it so easy for me to get through both sucessfully. He has drastically improved my life. His staff is great, they respond quickly to messages and they made sure all my paperwork was done on time and accurately. Top notch surgeon, that I would recommend to anyone without hesitation.

Nothing but good things to say about Dr. Plummer. A highly accomplished surgeon who genuinely cares about his patients. Had a double inguinal hernia surgery with him at the Montefiore Waters place. Gorgeous facility, seamless process. Dr. Plummer alleviated any concerns I had and made the process simple. Feeling much better after the surgery, no more hernia.

I was Dr. Plummer's patient in Montefiore (Moses) from November 10th to November 25th. For every day I was on admission, Dr. Plummer came to check on me except for Thanksgiving day. Even so, He arranged for me to be seen by another Dr. He's Caring, knowledgeable and down to earth.
