I generally have an appointment scheduled well in advance, I get in on time and see the doc within 15 mins. He is attentive and asks about my health and my concerns.

Our previous internal medicine doctor retired this past June so we had to find a new doctor. Dr. Plesiu was recommended by a friend and though it took a number of calls for an appointment, my wife and I were able to see Dr. Plesiu, as new patients, during this month, August, We are happy to have him as our doctor.

Dr. Plesiu is a good and thorough doctor and his style of care may be good for some patients. He's sort of aloof and is all business and I need something else. I need to have a rapport with my doctor, I have to know that my doctor actually cares about me and my health. [...] That's why I'd like to switch doctors. No offense to Dr. Plesiu.

Provider gave vague instructions after abnormal bloodwork. He allowed my wife to enter end-stage renal failre because he did not monitor her GFR and refer her to a nephrologist until I insisted (I am a physician myself)

This was a refer from my primary doctor who was retiring. I thought this would be a "get acquaint"visit. My records had not as yet been sent. Most impressed with exam and questions asked.

This health care provider is younger than I am, I chose him because of his age, education,I trust his judgement and I look forward to his help with my health care long term.

it is important to treat patients as individuals and not put them into labeled boxes-patients are not inanimate objects and physicians must understand their past health in order to treat their present and future health-

nurse did not update my weight loss in the chart so I had to contact them about that.

He always asks about the past problems to ensure they were not still bad

I do nott believe that the Primary Doctor knows nor understands my disorders of older AGE, Copd, Diabetes. nor does he understand the relationship between these disorders . he has limited 'bedside manner'. his mode of doing medicine is to request another blood test . I have attempted to change my physician [...].

I feel confident that this provider understands my health issues and he is working with me to achieve positive outcomes.

what a great place to go to for treatment

I like Dr. Plesiu. He listens well, and is very IT-savvy, so he can locate my records from other doctors and have good advice as to how to proceed in furthering my well-being. The MyChart patient app is a good way to communicate, such as after my last surgery but before my appointment with Dr. Plesiu. He or his nurse respond in a day or less.

This provider has not diagnosed my last 2 issues correctly, I tried to get further medication via email on my chart and have not gotten follow up emails. I will be looking for another primary care provider.

care provider is fine [...]!

Dr. Pleseu is very thorough.

Often, it is difficult to get an appointment for problems that arise and need attention quickly. Unfortunately, sometimes you cannot wait two weeks for the next available appointment and the only other choice is to go to an urgent care facility. Nurse [...] is great! I am becoming more familiar with the Patient Portal and use it as needed.

I thought it was unnecessary for one front desk person to give me 3 referral forms to complete the same info. I ask if she could copy one - then I could sign each form for an original signature & she refused when the forms were copies. Anyway, why make extra work for the patient.

[...] Dr. Plesiu as one of the very best I've seen! Extremely competent!

03/20/2017
Dr. [...] is my regular provider, but she was gone that day. I explained my situation to a triage nurse & she had me in in about an hour. I had an exam, went for a blood test within 30-45 minutes of arriving. This was my 4th bout of diverticulitis & I was to fly to my only child's wedding a few days later. My medications really helped , and we made the wedding, even though I was still on the pills. Have been going to this clinic for almost 15 years & will continue there.

All staff are very pleasant it help ease having to be at the dr. Dr. Plesiu listens and does NOT look down on you because you are a woman as some male drs. do.

The office staff has always been friendly and accommodating. The doctor is very thorough, listens to what I say, and quick to follow up on tests via MyChart.

I like Dr. Plesiu, but he needs to be warmer. I have two other doctors who I know a little bit about and therefore they know me - I think that improves treatment. Dr. Plesiu needs to show that he cares about me - warm up.
100

02/08/2017
I feel Dr Pleisu listens carefully and talks to me about recommended care. I find him to be knowledgeable and is willing to address my questions and/or concerns.

02/07/2017
[...] using the epic app to communicate with the office, which has been extraordinarily helpful in having consistent asynchronous communication m=with my provider. he is very responsive and helps us both keep things going.

Provider sends referrals for speciality care buy those places, more than not, did not accept my insurance. Would be nice if they were able to know this beforehand or try to get them to accept move to go to Tacoma or Puyallup for care on referrals.

Dr Plesiu listens well to what I say about my symptoms and always provides a plan and remedy.

For this event, I discussed an ED issue. He provided an expensive solution, we are working on an alternative.

Doctor is very thorough and detailed.

10/26/2016
The provider(s) are friendly and competent, but seems distant and restricted. By office policies? Example 1: I am only allowed to present two symptoms/complaints per visit. Example 2: He did not seem concerned about my being shunted off to WALMART for my flu shot. Example 3: I had to waste his time to get the flu shot. All in all, this can be handled better.

Listened to my problems and tried to help me

I am very pleased with the care I have received. I have a very complicated medical history and feel Dr. Plesiu is very knowledgable and tohrough in my treatment.

I have been impressed with the thorough checkups Dr. Plesui performs. He is soft-spoken and polite and has a nice firm handshake. On the one occasion that I needed to contact him after hours, he responded quickly and gave advice that set my mind at ease. His nurse followed up with me the next day to see how I was doing and both of them followed up with me several times after that. The only negative experience I had was with his after-hours answering service. I found the operator to be impatient and rude. Hopefully, she was having an 'off' night. To her credit, she did contact the doctor and he called back within minutes.

Dr. Plesiu is the ONLY dr. that has CALLED w/blood test report. Awesome I could ask questions!

09/26/2016
He was great! It was a first-time visit and it seemed some, but not all, of my records were there.
 

09/14/2016
My appointment was at 3:00. the doctor seemed tired, unconnected from my presence and somewhat disinterested. I had wanted a referral to an ear doctor and instead was advised an over the c0unter ear cleaning solution. which I am using with difficulty.
90

09/07/2016
I have only seen this provider once [...] I hope that Dr. Plesiu will continue to be available as my primary care doctor.
