Dr. Carlos Picone, MD
I believe in compassionate, cost effective medicine and a pro-active approach to identify problems early and prevent most health care problems through effective preventive medicine, immunization, exercise, adequate weight management and psychological harmony. We make every effort to provide evidence-based medicine and minimize unproven interventions. I also support early palliative medicine, attempting to recognize when the burden of treatment may results in dimishing quality of life.

Great doctor - figured out my problem quicky and gave me medication after weeks of misery - he did not recommend unnecessary tests seeing I was healthy and physically active. Awesome!!

Dr. Picone saw my father several times. He was very respectful, compassionate, skillful, knowledgeable and insightful. He spent time doing careful examinations with meaningful explanations and giving sound advice. He also spent time before and after the meeting session, to review the medical records. He double checked CT/X-ray images, not solely relying on the reports. Dr. Picone volunteers a lot of his time to provide affordable quality care to low-income and uninsured patients like my father
Thank you for your feedback. I do not know who you are but it warms my soul to know that the countless hours we spend in our profession sometimes are recognized and may provide real benefits to humans in need.
