Ratings for Dr. Paul E. Pilgram
I read some of the negative comments below and cannot believe them at all. It is sooooo easy and of ultimate convenience to proclaim in this one-sided "forum" that this excellent doctor is a pill-pusher. I have known this man for over 16 years now and can say he is the most caring and knowledgeable doctor I have ever met! When was the last time your doctor spent an hour with you to drill down to the root cause of your malady and then TEACH you with textbooks and articles on the subject. From that in-depth exchange, I can tell from personal experience, he is NOT any ordinary man! He actually cares! And THAT makes an absolutely consummate doctor!
Dr. Pilgram is by far the most caring, knowledgeable and motivated physician that I've been blessed to find. I have dealt with a chronic health condition for almost seven years. If it weren't for Dr. Pilgram's dedication to helping me through this, I seriously don't know if I could live in and with this condition. I am beyond thankful for Dr. Pilgram. He is truly one of a kind.
Dr. Pilgram is great. He spends as much time with you as needed, which is why you wait for your turn with him. He has a fabulous bedside manner, stays current on new research/treatments, and is highly knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone.
My mother was seeing Dr. Pilgram for the last 4 years. In that time he has diagnosed her with so many things and had her on so many medications including OxyContin, Percocet, ambien,and about 7 other pain or anti depressants. My mom just passed away she was on way to many medications that were not to be taken together. including my mother, brother and two other people that just I know of have died in Dr. Pilgrams care. He over prescribes which is probably nice for drug addicts, but I look at it as he has ruined my life.
I first met Dr. Pilgram in the ER at Jordan valley Hospital where I was being treated and then admitted for pneumonia in December 2011. I was immediately impressed with not only his knowledge and bedside manner, but with his willingness to spend the time with me and explain his diagnosis and prognosis. I also was impressed with just how up to date his knowledge of the latest treatments and medications available is.
Dr.pilgram is the worst doctor out there. He should be the new candy man! My friend goes to him for lower back pain and he gives her 600 oxi 30mg, 300 methadone 10mg, 120 percocet 10's,200 sleeping pills. WOW all for lower back pain. What does this tell you about him.
Yes his Staff can suck from time to time, BUT he is an excellent Doctor! You may have to wait and it may be quite a while BUT, he WILL spent all the time you need with you! He is Extremely personable and will work hard to get to the root of whats ailing you. I find it very hard to believe that he EVER Misdiagnosed ANYONE! Especially since I had been thru 5 other Docs previously. Doctor Pilgram was the only one to PROPERLY diagnose me. I think you people giving him bad reviews are probably the ones I've seen in his office being cut off from your Pain Meds for abusing them and just want to be MEAN! I have had many doctors throughout my life of over 50 years and have NEVER met a more compassionate person. Dr. P. will also give you samples of meds if you ask him and explain that money is tight. NEVER had a Doc even care before him!! I will be a patient for life and Bankruptsy gossip just proves what some people will do when they don't get their way!! Shame Shame Shame
