Patient Comments (1)
in Hyde Park, MA |
i was diagnosed as having a TIA, Dr. Pilgrim was the neurologist that looked over the hospital tests. He visited me while an inpatient and explained in lay terms what he felt happened and performed the neuro test associated with the symptom. We scheduled a follow up in his office he is very calming and explains things so that you understand what might have happened and what could happen in the future, I felt very comfortable talking to him and somewhat relieved
