awesome bed side manner , and great Dr, along qith his PA 's that work with him

May 29, 2018

Both Dr. Wilson and Dr. Pingpank treated me with respect for me as a person and what I was comfortable with in my treatment. Not all providers give that respect. My entire family was so happy that we had these two physicians involved in my care.

Dr. Pingpank and staff are outstanding! I am blessed that he was the doctor-on-call when I came into the ER. I literally owe my life to him and his staff.

Dr Pingpank, his staff and the CT radiology people at Hillman were all great and always respectful to and for me. I am very satisfied with their response and treatment and care for me.

I Love Dr Pingpank, he is the best surgical oncologist I've ever known! I would recommend him and his staff to anyone! Keep up the great work!!

I firmly believe I would not be alive today if it weren't for Dr. Pingpank and his staff and the nurses who cared for me.
