  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.

Excellent Doctor

Dr. Pilgrim is a rare combination of excellent professional skills and personable manner. He is truly concerned about his patients, and treats them as individuals. He spent a lot of time with me, and answered all my questions. I recommend him without reservation.

No follow up - Shameful

I have waited over two weeks for Dr Pilgrim to contact me with the results of my MRI. I have left multiple messages with his secretary and multiple messages on the patient portal, all have been ignored. I still have not received a call or email back from him. I am now looking for a new Neurologist to review the MRI. Dr Pilgrims behavior is shameful.

Wonderful Doctor

I have been a patient of Dr. Pilgrim for 14 years. He is brilliant, kind and caring. My diagnosis is MS which is scary because nobody really knows what can happen, but I have been lucky and Dr. Pilgrim has helped me so much in dealing with the known and the unknown.
