What People Say About Dr. John Pickel Jr, MD

I do NOT recommend seeing this doctor. He made me feel very uncomfortable with the way he handled me both physically and verbally during my extremely brief exam. He offered no diagnosis, he was condescending, belittled me and dismissed my pain. He made me like I was an inconvenience even though I paid $165 dollars to be seen at my appointment.

Arrogant and rude; does not listen to the patient's actual complaints. Rolled his eyes at me multiple times. I was told to just take more Aleve, after mentioning that it hasn't worked. I've never left a doctor's office crying before, and I won't do it again. Office staff was efficient and pleasant, but they are not worth dealing with a horrible doctor.

My first experience at a gynecologist office was surprisingly pleasant. I was very nervous, honestly, I had no idea what to expect. But as soon as Dr.Pickel and I began talking, I felt at ease, like I had been his patient for years. Very friendly, funny, and laid back, he's sure to make any first time patient feel comfortable and relaxed.

I seen him after having to go to the ER from bleeding for 2 months. His personality was cut and dry. I'm a bubbly person so we didn't mesh well. Didnt like him at all. Wish I would have read the reviews first. Won't be going back.

I have NEVER visited a doctor that spoke to me as this doctor did, like I was an absolute idiot. His bedside manner was non-existent. I told my husband that I would never visit him again, even if he were the last doctor on the planet! The medical community follows a different code than the rest of us, and I can respect the research that guides them to these beliefs, however, you are dealing with HUMAN BEINGS and not everything can be found in a medical journal. No wonder he has no wait!

This is the worst doctor I have ever experienced. He is rude, poor manners, does not address the issues of the patient, writes scrips that are more harmful to the patient. Will NEVER SEE HIM AGAIN OR REFER HIM TO MY WORST ENEMY!! STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN, IF U WANT TO LIVE AND BE IN GOOD HEALTH!!

If I could rate a negative star I would. Doctor performed surgery of only 1 fibroid removal(only had 1 large fibroid) and 2 months later after my surgery I had a CT Scan and I have a 2.5cm fibroid in the same location so apparently fibroid wasn't totally removed when it was to fully be removed??something to think about because I definitely don't want to go through another surgery from a Doctor not doing his job correctly. The pain and agony!!

Terrible Experience, didn't even take the time to listen and didn't care about my visit to the ER he gave me wrong information about my condition. Said that it was common to have rupture cysts in the ovary that every woman has them every month. NOT TRUE.
