Called this office for a neuro appt for my husband. Was told that I needed a referral from our MD. So I asked our doctor to deal with the referral process. Dr. Pilch's office then informed our doctor that he is not accepting any new referral patients. So instead of being upfront with me, this office wasted my time, my doctor's time and their own time.

Dr. Pilch is the best Neurologist I've ever seen. He is thorough, takes time to explain your diagnosis, follows up with medications to be sure they are effective.

He is the absolute best doctor hands down. He cares and spends the time needed so you understand what is going on. Neurology is complicated enough and he makes it a lot less so.
