Not a bad clinic IF you don't mind waiting for several months for an appointment and once you get there, wait another hour past your appointed time because of all the double bookings they do
Merced, CA |
This is a great dermatologist. He is often difficult to get an appointment with, because he is so well thought of. All of my co-workers go to him and say great things about him. I have had occasion to see his PA, Jeremy, who also if very professional and knowledgeable. I have gone to Dr. Pilkington for several different problems over the years and he always displays concern for me, takes the time to explain the situation, and always makes me leave the office with a positive experience.

Very personable and friendly Has a good sense of humor but also knowledgeable at the same time.

This office is very busy, but I was able to get in after about 20 minutes. Office is clean and staff is pleasant. TV shows game shows, not my thing but ok. Dr. Pilkington was very kind and knowledgeable, would definitely go back and bring my family.
Los Banos, CA |
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.
in Atwater Ca |
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.
