Over a year ago, my personal physician retired. Dr. Steven Pinckney to the rescue. He is more than a good doctor. He is a healer. He is knowledgeable of medications, benefits and side effects, but has an open mind to other means to improve the health of the people under his care. After six months on insulin I was not seeing the reduction I needed to improve my overall health. Dr. Pinckney suggested that I read a book written by Jason Fung - The Diabetic Code. It outlined the dietary way to treat diabetes. This book is a must read for anyone with a diabetic condition. THANK YOU DR. PINCKNEY!

Dr. Pinckney has been my primary care physician for many years. On two occasions, he was very thorough and used his extensive medical and scientific knowledge to treat two medical conditions I was experiencing. What was so important to me was that he could fix me when two other "specialists" could not. Specifically, after months of discomfort he made the proper diagnosis and I got better after he prescribed the most useful medication(s). Additionally, Dr. Pinckney has a tremendous way of making you feel that your in good hands and that he cares about you as a person not a condition. That is a rare thing to see and experience in medicine today.

I was scorned for taking my children to the ER by the nurse we saw when I had the follow up appointment the ER told us to make that my children's mother didn't make after not following the prescribed treatment for our children and told it was "a gross misuse of emergency services." I will be following up to file a former complaint about said nurse and the treatment I received from their office.

Praise God for directing our paths in the way we should go because he led me to Dr. Pinckney about a year and a half ago. After 20 years of struggling with type 2 diabetes Dr. Pinckney is the only physician who took the time to motivate me and assist me in becoming educated about this insidious disease, as a result of becoming educated I have had great success in reversing the effects of type 2 diabetes and have lost 60 pounds. Thank you Lord for directing me to Dr. Pinckney.

On a recent visit with the Pinckney family, his father, Fred, experienced a bout of overwhelming vertigo. Dr. Pinckney knew exactly how to handle Mr. Pinckney’s emergency episode. He did so with skill and soothing expertise. We highly commend his experience and skillful use of medical training. Gratefully, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Pinckney, Atlanta, GA

Choosing a new primary care Dr., thankfully a friend recommended Dr. Steven Pinckney. From day one we found him to be attentive and through. He got to know us individually and what OUR concerns and issues were. Never once have we felt that he rushed our appointments or didn't take the time to look into what the answer might be for us if he didn't know it right off hand. Looking things up as we're talking.... awesome bed side manor! If he doesn't have the answer, he'll get it. We are happy.

Dr. Pinckney is an excellent doctor who also has an ability to treat his patients as friends. I recently had a serious unknown medical condition that Dr. Pinckney diagnosed immediately and ordered further tests and pointed me in the right direction that ultimately led to live saving surgery. I would use 6 stars on this rating system to grade him outstanding

I am a patient of Dr. Pinckney's and would like to say that Dr. Pinckney is a wonderful doctor and friend. I first met Dr. Pinckney when my doctor retired and Dr. Pinckney took over his practice .I felt a little nervous when I first met him but I came to realize that this is a man that really cares about you . Recently I have had a blood pressure problem and he changed my medicine twice and had me come back every week until he knew that I was alright , he also prayed for me. Thanks Holly Baker

I have been a patient of Dr. Pinckney's for about 2 years now. I was new to Williamsport and had a number of health issues when I started seeing him. I have found Dr. Pinckney to be a very thorough and patient doctor. He stays on schedule, while taking the time with me that I need each visit. I have never had a problem getting an appointment with him when I need to see a doctor. I could not be any more pleased with the care that I am receiving currently.
