All of you who wrote RUDE comments about a really great family physician need to find another doctor. This physician gives you the best care anywhere and YES you do have to wait a bit sometimes. You don't mind when it's your turn and people have to wait on you. I do agree that his staff is VERY RUDE and they need to start working on that today.

best doctor ever.

I was sick for many years. My other doctors couldn't find anything. Dr. Pilkington saved my life. He did the right test and found I had brain tumor cancer. I'm alive. He saves lives every day.

Dr. Pilkinton probably does need to retire. He does not accept visa/debit for payment. On my first visit they did not tell me this over the phone and when I arrived they sent me down to the ATM machine to get cash which cost me about $5 total in service fees. I liked that Dr. P tried to get to know me and talk to me at first about myself but he really couldn't hear or understand a thing I said. I don't think he hears well. In the end he filled me up with a bunch of medication for a sinus infection and told me to come back in two weeks. His secretary is also a little hateful and short.
