    If you could give an Angel Award to someone hands down it would be Dr. Plotzker. From the moment she introduced herself throughout the appointment during the exam and prior to me exiting she portrayed such compassion knowledge patience professionalism kindness and skill. She provided great education in verbal and written form ensured accurate understanding allowed for questions throughout appointment offered therapy resources for a situation I shared with her and even a hug-which I needed. I knew what to expect throughout my exam and the plan of acre after results are achieved. I was frightened for years to go to this appointment and now I feel well taken care of and confident in continuing my treatment plan. I am thankful that Dr. Plotzker was the doctor assigned to my case. Very grateful!

    Dr. Plotzker is the best medical professional I have encountered. She has excellent bedside manners and she is an skilled medical doctor. All procedure was flawless and I felt great during the procedure and afterwards too. Past doctor's I have had were not as skilful as her. I'm delighted and lucky of having her as my Doctor.

    If I could give Dr. Plotzker a "10" I would. Her and my care team at UCSF have always given me the best service care and concern.

    Dr. Plotzker does a fantastic job of destigmatizing anal treatment by discussing it in practical terms. It's basic biology and she makes the treatment an informative and process oriented experience. No reason for shame just care.

    Fantastic doctor. Empathetic good sense of humor clear instructions.
    Aug 20, 2022
    Dr. Plotzker was fantastic. I had communicated about my high anxiety at the start of the appointment and she immediately asked if I wanted to do any grounding exercises. She also spent a fair amount of time drawing out/detailing LSIL and HSIL pathways and the differences between AIN 1 and AIN 2/3. I had a lot of questions and she patiently answered all of them. I honestly felt bad because as a healthcare professional myself I know being in clinic is busy and time-demanding but she was just so fully present and I really appreciated that.

    This physician is hands down the most personable friendly and informative Doctor I have ever engaged with. She was so kind and patient to explain everything and put me at ease. It's a rarity to feel confident in allowing yourself to fully trust a physician to treat you like a family member not a number.Thank you!

    The providers are amazing the providers are not the problem at all. The biggest issue at this clinic is the availability of appointments and how the lack of availability impacts patient care health outcomes prognostic factors and the inevitable loss to follow up the clinic will experience due to patient fatigue with not being able to get prompt and adequate care.
    Feb 20, 2022
    The best thing is the doctor is super patient to listen and answer my questions

    Anal Dysplasia is a sensitive practice area to manage. The diseases and treatments can be disconcerting for patients as they were initially for me. Dr. Plotzker excels in diagnoses and treatment which made me confident in the process. Her empathetic and educational approach helped assuage the anxiousness that comes with discussions around anal/rectal concerns. Dr. Plotzker's ability to balance the clinical with the personal is beyond exemplary.
