What People Say About Dr. Mark Pinkerton, MD
RecentMost Helpful

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.
