Patient Comments (2)
Salem, OR |
After seeing Dr. Pinkerton for 5 years, my mother tired of waiting 30 minutes or more for her appointments and walked out. After being advised that she would have to wait 90 minutes beyond her scheduled time and after driving more than an hour to see her, my mother said her time was worth something, too. In those 5 years, she found her to be "satisfactory" at best and lacking in communicating with other doctors regarding my mother's exam and test results.

I have been seeing Dr. Pinkerton for 20 years. She is kind, sensitive to patients' needs & fears, & very knowledgeable in her field. She even calls me evenings with results of some of my tests to discuss them with me. I travel 2 hrs each way to see her & I would not see anyone else! The reason why the wait is sometimes longer than usual is because she spends all the time the patient needs during the appointment. I don't mind waiting, because she does the same for everyone.
