Completely Confident in Dr. Pluznik

Dr. Pluznik did my cataract surgery last month. He explained all the options and related costs in a clear and understandable way, made recommendations, was very pleasant, thorough and professional and never made me feel rushed. The surgery was a complete success. I've already sent a friend to him and will go back to him when it is time to do the other eye.

I've never been given such a comprehensive exam. This was my second cataract surgery and I have to rate this one way above my prvious experience with another doctor. I give Dr. Pluznik the highest marks for his astute awareness of my individual requirements and a committment that I wish I could find in other doctors in different fields. Too bad we can't clone him.

Dr. Pluznik has given me the most thorough eye exams I have ever had. He checks and double-checks input from his staff and listens carefully to patients' comments. He is direct and clear in his explanations and instructions. After surgery he called me to see how I was doing and if I had any questions or concerns. I have his home phone and cell phone in case I need to contact him.
