Dr Pletcher is not only an outstanding surgeon but also a very caring physician.

So far Dr. Pletcher seems excellent. I look forward to his care as we figure out how to deal with my chronic recurrent sinusitis. I have more confidence in him than any prior ENT I have seen. He's smart well educated and trained experienced and conservative (i.e. doesn't seem too quick to go to surgical solutions).

Dr Pletcher exemplified good "bed side manner" knowledge and respect for me as the patient. I had great trust in his abilities and care from this first meeting with him to get a second opinion on my existing condition and concluded that I would use him as my surgeon for procedure recommended by first doctor and Dr Pletcher.

again. he refused to make any conditions about my illness other than I should live with it. and that it was a structural issue. he made zero sense and was a total waste of time and money.

He is knowledgeable in treatment plan & if I need ? he can do more. I'm ok with wait & see if things get better.

Upon getting my visit summary I noticed a prescription that the doctor never mentioned. I did not know what it was why I needied the prescription no directions on its use or duration. This was a bit of a shock as the doctor never mentioned a new prescription. I also noticed that the pharmacy shown for my pick up was not the pharmacy that I requested (previous prescriptions were sent to the correct pharmacy which is why this was a quite surprise). A nurse came down to explain the medication. When I went to pick it up today the pharmacy said the diagnostic code was not supplied and that they would need to contact your office. Also I was told the medication typically required a nebulizer machine which the pharmacy does not carry. Also Medicare Part B (note ... Part D does not cover it) typically pays for it if it is for a chronic condition which I believe I do not have (or do I?). If not covered it would cost me . And I don't know how important the medication is or if I really need it. I like to understand my medication and health situation but in this case I'm quite confused. This has greatly reduced my confidence in the UCSF medical team.

Seems he was not the doctor who could help so he referred me elsewhere for a redundant test.

Did not get information about a medication. Not clear about what was happening with a referral.

Dr Pletcher explained what was happening & showed me the video from the scope to explain what was wrong.

Dr. Pletcher has my unreserved respect appreciation and gratitude

Dr. was fairly unresponsive to my explanation of symptoms and concerns. Very quickly reviewed what he saw and deferred to another doctor. At one point actually cut me off. Was disappointed with this appointment.
