Highly Recommend

5/ 5

Could not have asked for a better experience when it came to Dr. Plus. At the age of 22 I had a bilateral microdiscectomy and experienced a year of excruciating pain. She was patient, kind, informative and very detailed when it came to explaining what the surgery entailed. I would recommend her and the entire office to anyone.

I had the opportunity to be a patient at Dr. Plus’ office last week and I was treated with the best care at her practice. She was professional, courteous and caring. She helped me when I couldn’t even lift my head, Dr. Plus is a doctor for life, for sure.
