Patient Comments (2)
Meridian, MS |
He goes from room to exam room saying the same thing without exception. For example, one day he told my mother not to go walking in the heat. The only probably is she can't walk and was sitting in her wheelchair right in front of him. We heard him say the same thing to two other patients. He did not like the patient or the patient's family to ask questions. My other family member won't go back to him either because Plavac didn't think he had a heart problem. He had 7 blockages!

Easy bedside manner and very thorough in explaining procedures, treatments, and disease prevention
