Dr. Brian R Pickett has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Highly Recomend - Very Patient and Helpful Doctor - Wonderful experence for having to go to a doctor!

Dr. Picket spent more time with me than any doctor has ever taken the time to talk, discuss my medical needs and concerns. He asked questions that I wish all doctors would ask to completely understand what was going on with my health issues. He explained areas of my medical problems that helped me better than the doctor who is treating me for that specific medical problem. Took the time to cover all my medical history and good and bad habits! He explained in non medical terms so that I could understand. He did not just use medical terms and expect me to know what they meant!His office staff made me and my wife feel like we were part of the family on my first visit. Helping with all our questions and needs. They were very friendly! I would highly recomend him to all my family and friends to come have their heart checked out with him.
