His girls were trying to give me an EKG and was having trouble with the leads, one went and got the doctor, he returned and told them they could leave, so I was in the room with him ALONE, he went to leave to get another lead , I'm on the table naked from the waist up and he leaves the door open!!! I remarked loudly asking him to shut the door and his response was "I'll be right back" !!!!! Then he did it a second time!! I didn't return!! And of course Essence insurance did nothing about it

No, don't do it, life is at stake

Bad care or no care. Don't know if it is the insurance or doctor. Would never recommend this guy. My family is having sever hardship due to his misdiagnosis. Check out where his degree is from...Get rid is Essence Insurance before it is too late.

Dr. Plisco is a member and shareholder of the Essence Medicare Plan. Since Essence is doctor owned the doctors are shareholders and not just independent medical doctors. Dr. Plisco was very reluctant to refer my situation to a specialist or to approve an MRI when warranted due to cost of the treatment. My experience was very unsatisfactory since his primary interest appeared to be holding costs to a minimum rather than what treatment was best for the patient.
