Dr. Pilar holds degrees in Chemical Engineering and Medicine from the University of Toronto. Most of his postgraduate education is from his colleagues, international work and from his patients. His teachers include Prof. Linus Pauling, a Nobel Laureate.
He likes using engineering principles in treating allergy, pain, anti-aging, chronic symptoms, mind-body healing, toxicity, clinical nutrition, hormones, clinical hypnosis, orthomolecular, integrative and functional medicine. His techniques include injections such as allergy, prolotherapy, nutrients and medications. Treatment is often faster as is the combination of conventional and complementary.
Four decades and more than 100,000 patients’ worth of experience allows him to provide second opinions on difficult cases. In addition, he has provided pro bono medical work in an underserved Central American community.
Outside of the clinic Dr. Pilar enjoys food, hiking, cycling, music, dancing, spiritual and art traditions.
