Batavia NY |
Dr Pilcher is a wonderful, caring, gifted doctor. His PA, Sue is also amazing. He was conservative in his treatment, trying all options before opting for surgery. I had a discotomy/laminectomy and he took wonderful care of me. I trust him with my life. I highly recommend him.

I wouldn't recommend him to my enemy! He almost killed my mother. His assistant is worse.

I had a benign tumor removed from my brain Aug. 3 2015. Dr Pilcher performed the surgery. It took 6 hrs just as he said it would. He was very thorough and proved that he is the best brain surgeon in the world! All went just as he planned. NO surprises. I went back to work 4 mos. latèr. I cannot recommend him high enough. For anyone who has neurologic disorders or tumors of the brain or spine, he is a MUST SEE!

What a great experience I had on my first appointment with Dr.Pilcher and Physician Assistant Susan Smith! Professional, informative, and very nice. They made me feel comfortable and less worried, as nervous as I was to hear what my diagnosis was. I recommend and them to anyone!
in Odessa, NY |
My experience with Dr. Pilcher was extraordinary. He, his staff, Physician's Assistant (Susan Smith), et al. were professional, friendly (no matter what they say about surgeon's bedside manners), and most importantly competent to the extreme. I would strongly recommend he and his office!
