    Doctors were very professional and gentle while doing procedure. Office was a little small for the amount of patients that he has. I love the T.V. channel they watch, Bonanza or Gun smoke. Great !! However I didn't have insurance at the time i had a biopsy. and when i needed to return, made $100 payment the office Manager for A/R wouldn't let me be seen until the whole amount was paid. Which i am making a payment today.

    I have been a patient for the past 15 years. Dr. Pilkington has always been very thorough. I've had 6 Basal Cell cancers removed because I didn't use the proper sun protection when I was younger. I have moved to another state. I hope I can find another physician that can come close to his care.
