Dr Pickens is a good doctor but the receptionist (Maxine) is very rude . She rushed me off the phone and never told Dr Pickens I called . I called to get the results to my medical test and Maxine just said " I'm sorry Angela is the one that handles that and she's out of town " I'm upset because no one from the office called to give me my results . I had to see Dr Pickens again a few days ago to get results and found out I have staff infection that no one bothered to tell me !!

Dr Pickens is a great Doctor I feel like he had a part in saving my life when I was very sick,, he to me is like family. If only I could get receipts when I call in for one, its not his fault its his billing lady, she never calls back, I have been waiting 3 weeks for this last one :(

Great family doctor who really cares. The worst part is trying to get refills for medication. The pharmacy has to send multiple requests to get an okay for refills. He has been my doctor for 17 years, and I trust him.
