Dr. Pillon is one of the most devoted and compassionate physicians that I have met. When it comes to patient care, she is an avid listener and always ensures that the patient understands the risks, benefits, and alternatives of every treatment. During appointments, she gives quality time and explains everything thoroughly, which I really like because it makes me feel as though she values my health. Dr. Pillon’s expertise and experience within the field of Nephrology, really allows me to trust her decisions and eases my mind knowing she truly cares about the wellbeing of her patients. The experience doesn't end with Dr. Pillon, her staff is smart, caring and very efficient! Lastly, not to forget, the overall environment of the clinic is clean, warm and welcoming.

I love Dr. Pillon! I appreciate her so much. I’ve been in Vegas for 15 years and bounced around from nephrologist to nephrologist until I found her. She truly cares about her patients, is thorough, takes time to explain things, stays up to date on research on the field, listens to you, and really makes herself accessible. I have PKD, a genetic disease, because of this, preventative care and self care has always been my priority. I’m so glad I’ve found her!

She is very attentive and listens. She spends whatever amount of time you need. She looks at your whole health and works in conjunction with other doctors to make sure you take a holistic approach to your health. She doesn't rush to make a decision on your health. She listens and learns from what you tell her.

Treacy in las vegas, NV – Oct 16, 2018
Dr. Pillon is the best doctor I have ever came across. She really really cares about her patients. She's my kidney doctor but she checks on me as if she's my main doctor. My main doctor don't care like Dr. Pillon. If you're interested in a good kidney doctor check out Dr. L. Pillon. I love her. Kimmiko Baker.

She is very personable & attentive. No waiting in the office. Dr Pillon spent as much time as needed to go over concerns . A plan was always discussed before leaving the appt & the next visit began with a review of how the plan worked out between visits. An excellent doctor!
