Prescribes Ineffective Dosages

Twice now, Dr. Picken has under-medicated infections I had. Each time, I confirmed via standard medical textbooks and medical journals that the doses she prescribed were much lower than the standard. For the present infection I have, two other physicians confirmed that her prescribing dose was too low. Now I have an infection that will no longer respond at all to the recommended first line of therapy. Because of her under-dosing, the organism has become resistant.

Good experience

Highly recommended by my longtime family doctor. Able to schedule appt quickly when MRI results indicated possible serious diagnosis. Able to explain MRI report and images so we had enough understanding. Diagnosis aligned w/post surgical outcome. Hospital/surgical employees seemed genuine in praise.

Five Stars

Dr. Picken is a great doctor and surgeon. The surgery went amazingly well and recovery was as she described with minimal pain. Post op care was great and all appointments were scheduled in advance. Very positive experience.

Loved the care and outcome

I have found Dr. Picken to be caring, well informed and helpful on all of the occasions I've needed her care. My overall experience is that she is the best of all my doctor experiences, and I don't say that easily. She solved my health issues when two other doctors couldn't.
