Dr. Platz completed his undergraduate education with honors in chemistry at Grinnell College. He pursued medical school at the University of Iowa College of Medicine and followed this with a surgical internship at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center in Chicago. He was also a research associate at the Department of Orthopedics of Rush Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center and a resident at Community Hospital Indianapolis Family Practice Residency.
He is board certified in family medicine and has been a clinical faculty member at Community Hospitals since 1991. In his career, he enjoys the opportunity to help people with understanding as well as medical care.
He feels Dr. Ernst Wunder’s view that medicine “should be the function to help people die young as late in life as possible” helps physicians manage illness in a way that promotes a good life. Dr. Platz is particularly interested in providing medical care for infants, children and adults, including minor in-office procedures that include vasectomy.
In his spare time, Dr. Platz enjoys playing golf with his sons, taking walks with his wife and their dogs, reading, and singing in the church choir at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church.
Dr. Platz is accepting new patients by referral only.
