I saw Dr. Picone both in the hospital and his outpatient office. He did not give me the answer I expected, but was very professional and gentle in explaining his reasons. Surgery discussed not from my cancer, in remission for 23 years ,but all the damage from treatment and long term side effects, make surgery for a serious infection too high risk. I trust his decision, even though I wish it had been different. He appears to be a man who cares for his patients very much.

I would recommend Dr. Picone to anyone who can benefit from his skills. I am confident that his surgical and medical skills saved my life. Moreover, he is a compassionate professional whose kindness was appreciated by my family while I was in crisis and by me while in recovery. I can say I found Dr. Picone to be excellent in his work and just a very nice man.
