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.

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!

I suffered frequently from bronchitis and had a permanent lung inflammation with continuous mucus producion and cough. Dr. Picone designed a treatment schedule that cleared my bronchial airways. Now I can breath deeply without getting a spasm and can climb stairs without getting breathless.
