Dr Plantholt is an excellent cardiologist. I have been going to him for over 10 years. He was also my mother’s doctor and handled her care for many many years, as well as my brother. He is very warm and caring and takes time to listen to concerns. He is very thorough with his explanations and answering questions. Other reviews have stated many of my thoughts as well. I have and will continue to recommend him to friends and family.
