How was your experience with the doctor?I thought my visit was very professional. Dr. Plancher was very thorough and was able to figure out the problem with my shoulder when no other orthopedic was able to. He shows much pride in his work and you can tell he cares about his patients. He works extremely hard for his patients and makes them feel at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Plancher.
