There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

When I saw Dr. Plotick an ENT , he checked my throat well , he also checked my nose thoroughly . but never even check or looked at my ears , which is why I was referred . he has referred me to an ear specialist but I have no idea where or when this is to occur , this is not acceptable .

All in all a good experience for a Doctors visit. Nobody likes having Medical issues that lead them for help, but it's nice to know help was provided in a warm caring manner.

I am a Registered Nurse with a current PA license. I have worked for the Utilization Management Review Team for the Department of Welfare. I know a little bit about safe medical practice. The physician acted uncomfortable performing the task of suctioning out my baby's ears. The equipment was dirty. The nurse (medical assistant?)helping to hold my son down had fake nails that were more than an inch long. This is unprofessional and unacceptable. I am taking my son to CHOP for future ENT appointments.

The PA was excellent and took the time to thoroughly document my conditions, update my medications and review prior testing and my last visit to ENT. Very professional and thorough.
