Horrible staff!! Helped me set up an apt and took down all my information. Knew I was driving for 3 just to make my apt and did show any empathy as to inform me before hand that my insurance would not be accepted!! When I got there they took no responsibility and only said I would have the option to pay cash, did not apologize for error because it was not their fault it was “another department!” Horrible experience drove six hours for nothing!!

Dr. Picou’s office REFUSED to send electronic/fax prescriptions for their patients. Due to COVID pandemic, we asked them to reduce their patients’ risk by not having them physically turn in prescriptions. This doctor and his staff do NOT have patients’ welfare in mind.

I was referred to Dr. Picou by my rheumatologist for a skin condition. After waiting 2 hours we gave up. The office staff was horrible! He lost several patients as we waited there. We were told he has 4-5 patients scheduled every 15 minutes!!! Don’t waste your time.
