Dr. Pillsbury, takes her time with patients. Explains things so you understand. Even gives time for questions. She has been my dr. For over 10 years. She visits her patients if they are in the host. Most dr. Work.for monies and don't care. They also treat you as a number.

Dr. Pillsbury has worked diligently to research and figure out a solution to my very complex symptoms as my response to the usual solutions was ineffectual. I think she has figured out the answer for me as I am improving each month!!!! I really want to thank her for all the time she has spent with me and on my behalf! I can’t say enough good about her! So if I have to wait a bit, I know she is giving the same great care to the patient ahead of me! Lou Ann S.

I have been a patient of dr Pillsbury for 21yr and a transplanted kidney for 5yrs she know s me very well and any meds that other drs prescribes she is notified and she checks them to make sure they don’t conflict with the untiregection meds. The utmost concern is the health of her patients I m a very appreciative patient

Dr. Pillsbury was my Nephrologist when I was on dialysis and also after I received a kidney transplant. She is very thorough - much like a combination of a Nephrologist and a Primary Care Physician. I've never felt rushed in my office visits. Yes, there can sometimes be a little wait in the waiting room, but it is worth it as everything I've every needed, and I've needed a lot, has been both addressed and fully explained. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pillsbury to both family and friends.
