On a recent visit to Ventura, I injured my hand. A visit to a local ER wasn't helpful at all. Dr Pickart's friendly staff understood the urgency of the situation, and gave me an immediate appt. Staff was welcoming and helpful when we arrived, and Dr PIckart himself was all one wishes for in a doctor:. He listened to my description of what had happened, and after a thorough and careful examination, he explained the options available to me. His follow up has been attentive and helpful.

Dr. Pickart is an excellent physician. I had a great experience with him and his team. He is not only amazingly talented as a surgeon, he is also kind and compassionate. He spent time with me talking and teaching. He never seemed bothered or hurried when I had questions. His whole office functions as a very efficient team. I recommend them 100%.
