I am very pleased with the treatment that I have received from Dr. Piken. He quickly identified the proper treatment plan, followed thru to assure it was working, and has even been generous with the medicine required. Also, his nurse has been extremely responsive to any need that I have had.

Very kind and he knew exactly what was wrong with me. He explained what was my diagnosis, offered a simple solution and more diagnostics if I did not feel comfortable with his recommendation and had me come back in one week. He also told me to call his office immediately if I had any problems or questions befor my next appointment.

I absolutely love Dr. Piken! He is caring and understands my anxiousness about health concerns without irritation or being condescending as some caregivers can be. He listens and has never rushed through my visits. I can usually get an appt with Piken when needed, but he has plenty of associates to cover when he's out of office etc. It's really nice to find a physician that has great bedside manners.
