Dr Plooster is outstanding. All ways. Listens to all I have to say before giving A recommendation A few years back I lost my regular Doctor Imagine that. But after going thru several. I feel lucky to have access. To. Dr Plooster.

Nurse interrupted twice, dr. left the room to deal with another patient once. (His nurse is very nice) First visit. He didn't have my chart/laptop with him, nor was I asked to fill out paperwork, so he had no information about previous health issues.. I felt rushed, the visit was shorter than it should be for a first-time visit (about 20 minutes), Friendly, but i didn't feel like he was thorough. If I had not had a list of things to discuss, the visit would have lasted 10 minutes or less.
