May 2020 : I am a medical doctor so I know fine docs . Dr Picone has been helping with a pulmonary issue and general medical issues. He is incredibly nice, well mannered, kind and wise. His medical skills are excellent. He is very responsive, thoughtful, and through. He takes time to address your individual needs. I particularly like his concierge practice. It costs a bit more but you get much more back in terms of very individualized and fast care. This doc gets an A+ in patient service and medical skills.

Excellent doctor. He treats the patient as a person and take the time to discuss any concern of the patient even not related specifically to the issue he is treating, suggesting new medications that work much better than the ones taking for years (this is what happen to me with my high pressure medicine he suggested me to change), recommending other life style changes to improve the health. I travel 50 miles in rush DC traffic to get to his office, but it is totally worth if you care about your health. I am already recommending Dr. Picone to family and friends.

Dr. Picone began as my pulmonologist and treated my lung condition with the minimum medications for the maximum benefit. He clearly explains my condition and treatment. In addition, Dr. Picone always took the time to inquire about and discuss other medical conditions I was experiencing. Unique. When my primary care physician retired I leaped at the chance to join Dr. Picone's new SignatureMD (boutique) medical practice. I am delighted with his care and enjoy his upbeat personality.

Whether the visit is routine or extraordinary, Dr. Picone continues to be the consummate professional. In an age of quality sacrificed for speed, I have found his extensive knowledge and compassionate care most reassuring. I’m sure I join many other patients who are ever grateful for Dr. Picone, a life-saver, literally, and remarkably humanitarian practitioner. DSR, Chevy Chase, MD

I recently contacted Dr. Picone via email about a persistent cough I was having for the past few days. In a short time, he returned my inquiry and sent an RX for prednisone to my pharmacy. Five days later, problem solved!

About Me

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. I also support early palliative medicine when the burden of treatment results in dimishing quality of life.
