Went In for my Hernia walked through the procedure and the risks. Told me to call when ready for surgery. When I was ready I called 5 months later, the only issue was they were having problems with the scheduling app and said she would call me back but didn't. didn't think about it again for another 4 months, scheduled surgery was in within the month.
Great experience, he did his job, good looking incision, healing well without complications.
He's not a doctor to sit around and talk about the weather, but will answer any questions you ask.
This doctor seems incapable of accepting responsibility for his errors in surgery thst left me with permanent spinal damage caused by an infection he refused to even consider being there instead only showing arrogant unconcern foe voiced complaints and discharging after bowel surgery before any sign the bowel was working. Now I have permanent spinal damage that will affect me the rest of my life. In fact at one point I mentioned very bad chest pain from which he said that perhaps that is good as maybe gas will start to move when in fact I had classic signs of discitis he preferred to dismiss as a neurosis or some rediculous thIng. Thanks to this man my life has changed forever. I wouldn't let this man touch me never mind operate. Offer an apology as is due? Fat chance. This so called doctor should be disciplined instead of letting him go on with the same exceedingly poor attitude and disregard for his patient.
Dr. Plewes has been my doctor for only a few years and all of my visits have been very honest and to the point. He is very good at his craft and my appointments and surgery at the Royal Alex have all gone very smoothly and feel I was treated with great care.
Dr. Plewes is the best Dr.I have ever met! He is friendly, polite, very knowledgeable. He takes his time to explain surgical procedure. No "sugar coating" lets you know about any potential risks. He truly makes you feel like you are more than just a patient. He performed major surgery on me, and he did an excellent job! He had a wonderful bedside manner. I wouldn't hesitate to ask for him if I was to ever need surgery again.
I would highly recommend Dr. Plewes to anyone looking for a highly skilled surgeon.
The only negative I can say is, his secretary needs to brush up a bit on her people skills. She always seems somewhat cranky! A friendlier tone and perhaps a smile now and then would be nice!
I agree with the comment below, the doctors office staff seemed cold and almost disturbed by my calling in. While I've not had the operation yet, will be a couple of weeks from now, I'm somewhat put off by his staff. I hope that he can do something about this as it reflects poorly on him.
One of the most efficient, practical, honest, and helpful Doctors I've ever had, surgery was a breeze, healing was much better than expected, and my home care nurses where amazed at his work and precision. Even in the follow up appointments, he had had genuine concern and empathy making sure everything was perfect before letting me go.
Truly the best! I concur with much of what has been said here already. Dr. Plewes operated on me to repair a fistula between my colon and bladder, and also to resection my colon. I found him to be exceptionally professional, knowledgable, and pragmatic in my pre-op and days following the surgery. He tells it like it is, doesn't sugar coat possible complications, is open to questions, and is polite and cordial. I left his office after the first consultation feeling very confident about a major surgery. As mentioned, it's obvious that his co-workers hold the man in high esteem; he is as skilled as they come, and it is obvious the respect he garners from those around him. I can't thank the man enough, and I HIGHLY recommend you seek him out if you are facing surgery. You will not be disappointed! Overall, an EXCELLENT physician, asset to his field, and a blessing to patients.
