Patient Comments (1)
in Washington, DC |
Dr. Pickens could not keep our appt. The staff attempted to schedule me for four weeks out after already waiting for 3-4 weeks for the initial appt. Because I need relatively immediate care, I asked for a copy of my records so I see another provider. They actually charged me $35.00 to print out my records so I could see another ENT. The staff outside of the office manager, were curt, rude and difficult. I will never return.
