Was condescending the first time I saw him over 10 years ago for my fibromyalgia and even more so now with my new diagnosis of osteoarthritis. Did not want to look at sites of pain/inflammation/swelling(like my hands), only wanted to tell me my glutes being tight was the reason for my going on 2 years daily lower back pain. Oh, and I need to lose weight. Appointment was less than 15 minutes and a complete waste of time and money.

he was dismissive on my first visit. Acted like i was a bother and seemed bored with me telling him my symptoms. Very vague, I asked about a specific Muscle pain of what that could be..and in a condescending tone stated ‘well you wouldn’t know what that came from’

Dr. Pick took the time to explain everything to me in language we could understand. I needed a different type of Dr. and he called and got me an appointment right on the spot. The best Dr. I have seen in years.
