Could not asked for a better MD than Dr. Pluss

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2016
I have felt very confident in the care I've rec'd at *Pluss office - Excellent attitudes & follow - through.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
Dr Pluss always spends time and is attentive, probably why often a bit late making his next appointment

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
Waited 3 months for this appointment....well worth the wait.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
Provider was excellent.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
The provider is excellent but the wait is often very long and the check in process and vitals take too much time

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2016
Felt like I was the only person there, everyone treated me like I was "precious cargo". Love National Jewish, better than any other facility I have to attend. Thank you to each and every one of the staff, especially the nurses and most of all Dr. William Pluss! I'm his biggest fan!

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2016
I like this provider for the overall quality of care he provides, but he's always quite late for each appointment.

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2016
My doctor and his staff could not have been better with my care.
