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.
