Dr. Pillsbury is very good in explaining condition(s), treatments, etc. She spends quality time with me and answers all my questions. I never feel rushed as I do with most doctors.

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.
