Five Stars

When meeting up with Dr. Pickens anywhere he has always recognized me and asks about my health. When meeting him in the hospital hallway several years ago he quickly asked if I was there for any treatment, which I wasn't, but had a friend in for treatment. Dr P asked what type and not long after, appeared in the room to give a hug. Not only is he a caring physician but is a compassionate and loving person.

Best MD ever

I'd give Dr. Pickens 10 stars if I could. He's so concerned about each patient. He was waiting for me to wake up after my surgery, patted my hand and told me everything was going to be alright. He brightens my day every time I see him. I'd recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat (and have).

Wonderful doctor

I saw Dr. Pickens when I was 16 years old to have a cyst removed. He was an absolutely wonderful doctor. Great bedside manner, so caring and friendly, and amazing ability to put me at ease. He did a great job helping me through the nervousness and he was so readily available for follow-up, which is not a common trait with doctors. I most definitely do back to him if I needed to. Also, he was sure to leave a minimal scar!
