I have been seeing DR Pingpank since 2009. I completely understand the need and want to spend enough time with him to get all questions and concerns answered. sometimes it takes a longer time to get all the answers. I therefore completely understand if Dr Pingpank is a bit late to see me because I know he is doing his job and spending enough time with another patient to help them with their needs.

March 24, 2016

Dr. Pingpank has always been very caring and attentive to my concerns and needs. He often stops just to listen carefully to me when he is ready to leave and I have one more question. He admits when something I have a problem with is not something he can help with but does not stop there. He always finds someone to help me so I can resolve my issues.
