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
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.
i have been going to this doctor for 10 years and got sick of his lack of caring about anything you say to him! this is one of those doctors that just wants your money, i have sines found a new doctor why in fact found big problems with my heath in the first visit PLEASE DON'T USES THIS DOCTOR IT COULD COST YOU YOUR LIFE!
