I have been an RN for 30 years and you just do not find wonderful physicians like this anymore. He is excellent, takes time to explain the procedure throughly, patiently answers questions without acting like it's such an inconvence. Dr. Pingree fused cervical discs 3-4-5-6 in my neck. I had no complications and feel great. This dr is awesome. Staff is also very helpful and professional, great customer service.

A friend referred me to Dr. Pingrees office and i'm so glad they did. The waiting room is small and they are not trying to get through as many people as possible like the other places. They know me by name and they always spend extra time with me. Instead of just recommending surgery like with other doctors he takes the time to do tests and make sure there is good reason and explain everything. They have had great communication with me and I would definitely recommend this doctor.

I was very pleased with my experience with Dr. Pingree, and found him to be thorough, knowledgeable, and professional. The surgery and care I received after were excellent. My SI joint problems were completely taken care of, and the pain has been eliminated. I would recommend him to others and would not hesitate to see him again.
