      Dr. Plaus saw me in the office as an emergency. He quickly diagnosed that I had acute appendicitis. He admitted me to the hospital and did my surgery. His professionalism and bedside manner is outstanding. He and his staff exude a natural sense of compassion. Thank you Dr. Plaus for an outstanding job.

      Friendly, pleasant disposition, provides excellent movie reviews. Wasn't eager to have hernia repaired but overall excellent experience. Hope never to need his services again but would be pleased to refer others. Office staff is outstanding!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
