We love Dr. Pickett. Dr. Pickett has saved him his life more than once. We have other family members and friends to come and see Dr. Pickett. He’s very personal and upfront with you. He listens to what you have to say and then he responds. We love the way he’s very personal with you as he walks into your room in the hospital and sits on the side of the bed and talks to you. Dr. Pickett was highly recommended by doctors in the medical center downtown Houston, TX.

The first thing I notice in picking a physician is his office staff, Dr. Picketts are wonderful, second is their nursing staff, again his are kind and professional. I love Dr. Pickett, I like his genuine concern for my health, and I like that he sits and takes time to talk. He doesn't race in and hurriedly review your records and leave. He's pleasant and down to earth making it easy to go for cbeckups. Plus if I ever need him for anything serious I trust him!

Once you meet Dr. Pickett you will immediately know that you hit the jackpot. I live over an hour away, but this is the only cardiologist I will see. There are times when wait time is longer, but that is because Dr. Pickett is in surgery. I don't mind waiting for a Doctor to save someones life. Dr. Pickett will listen to all your questions and take his time to answer you in a way that you will understand.

I developed sudden severe pain in both of my upper arms; as a physician, I suspected it was due to angina. Since my wife is disabled, I drove myself to Conroe Medical Center where the ER was great, as usual. It was not long before Dr. Pickett was doing a heart catheterization and found that the main artery to my left ventricle was trying to clot off. He identified a severe narrowing and proceeded to place a stent to open up the artery. He not only saved my life but is very personable too!
