If your a veteran steer clear of this Dr. He is unable to refer Gabapentin to VA for fill. Horrible beside manner! His amusement calling me "Flipper" while receiving injections in back as I was wincing in pain was more than unprofessional! F- RATING

Went in for injection in lower back as VA referral. Going on 90+ days waiting for Pinkerton to simply fax the recommended meds to VA for fill and due to his lack of commitment as Dr. Unable to do so! Look for any Dr outside this one who cares less about our country's combat veterans; who quality of life is worse by allowing the recommended injections. (I assume this as he called me once since procedure; not returning my emails (3) and phone calls (2) Migraines are a weekly occurrence after Dr Pinkertons treatment which I've had same injections prior from other Dr's with zero issues in my career. Save yourself the migraines and go anywhere else.

Very nice bedside manner. Nice office staff. I'm always nervous going to the Dr. and when I leave his office I feel like I have been taken very good care of. He seems very knowledgeable and while I am in the middle of being treated and haven't had a successful outcome YET, I am confident he will help me. I'd absolutely recommend him.

Dr. Pinkerton is friendly and knowledgeable. He has a strict philosophy on not just giving away narcotics. I appreciate his diligence given the national crisis. He tries other options instead of just handing out pills. It seems like some of the other reviewers had difficulty accepting that pain medication wasn't the only option.
