Very good.


Very caring and understanding of the problem, dealt with the situation in a more than acceptable manner




professional & concerned.


I have been referred to Dr. Plonk twice for sinus surgery. He listens thoughtfully, explains what he finds and what he is going to do and offers good instruction for follow up. I feel he is extremely knowledgeable and a caring, compassionate doctor.


good experience.


I think he has a "hold on" what my problem is.....I'll be back! :-)


Very warm & professional.


Dr Plonk was most attentive (I am a new patient)


We have total confidence in Dr. Plonk.


I was sick and he treated my sinus infection. He is a good listener.


Dr. Plonk made me aware of the other symptom that I was experiencing may be related to my condition. That I need to follow up with test to confirm or rule out. He e-mail my primary doctor his findings and suggestions. She follow up with test, to confirm what he expected. I think that was a good observation or call.


I won't recommend this provider *Dr. Plonk.


I would refer you all to anyone


*Dr. Drew Plonk is a wonderful, caring dr. so glad he is back and taking care of me again -


Very good listener. Glad to have him back.


I typically wait for the doctor to come longer than I'm actually with the doctor. Not muh more but maybe about a 10 min difference. also I'm not sure if the doctor is stressed of what but he seems a tad bit less friendly in my last two appointments. Nothing to write to anyone about but I do like him as my doctor.




I believe that dr. Plonk is an outstanding doctor who is extremely capable of providing me with great care.
