Dr Pluss is very caring and knowledgeable. It is just hard to get an appointment with him.

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2017
I feel blessed to have William Pluss as my MD at National Jewish. I cannot say enough positive things about him - caring, knowledable, concerned with my overall heath, not just my reason for being at NJ. His manner and attention to detail is so very impressive. His way to encourage me to moniter some things that i have not been doing will help us have an even more productive appointment the next time. THANK YOU NJ AND WILLIAM PLUSS, MD
