I am madly in love with Kathy Plesser. She is the best there is in every way; brilliant, kind, sensitive and very generous with her time. I have had two biopsies done by her and I can report that they were actually painless! She is so skilled with the needle and in reading the sono and mammo. Although she does not take Medicare anymore, I am staying with her and paying cash out of pocket. That is how much I trust and value her expertise and personality! I couldn't go to another doctor after being treated by Dr. Plesser. She is following a very small mass in my dense breast that I think no one else would have even found.
Dr Plesser is as good as it gets in breast evaluation. She found 16 precancerous cells in my breast using mammography and ultrasound and as a result I was able to have a tiny biopsy surgery instead of much more serious future surgery. The surgeon could not believe that she was able to visualize so few bad cells. But I was not surprised. She is so careful and takes so much time evaluating your mammograms and ultrasounds and MRIs that you just know she will find whatever might be lurking. She often calls patients late in the evening to tell you that everything is all right. She is the best there is!
Dr. Plesser is an amazing Doctor. She is very warm and able to speak with patients and put them at ease. She is thorough and will always do what's best for her patients. I can not say enough positive things about Dr. Plesser and her support technicians are also very helpful and nice especially during biopsy procedures.
Worth the wait! Started about 1 hr late, but I think that was because an "emergency" case came in ahead of me. The girls at the reception desk were a little gossipy- not too professional (only negative of the experience). The procedure was fine. MaryAnn, the technician was absolutely awesome and compassionate, explaining everything thoroughly. Dr. Plesser was kind, professional and knowledgeable. She was very reassuring throughout. I don't have results yet, but so far, so good.
I had a bad experience when I had a stereotactic biopsy in the past at another facility. Dr Plesser and her staff are amazing. Knowing about my past experience, Erin, Dr Plesser's assistant actually put her arms around me during the more difficult parts of the procedure. Not only is Dr Plesser extremely caring, she is very knowledgeable. I highly recommend that anyone looking for the best radiologist contact Dr Plesser!!
Insists on cash up front. Why does she wear a tight white blouse that shows her breasts? Unnerving if you think you may have cancer. Reccommends unecessary testing. My experience is different than the other people on this site. Don't understand it.
