    David Ploss is great. He has been my cardiologist since 2006. I now live in Santa Rosa and drive to Ukiah to see him for my cardiology needs.

    I live in Crescent City Ca. and travel to Ukiah for my heart issues because Dr. Ploss is amazing he has been my cartilagist for about five years and has my full confidence. He is the reason that I travel that distance.
