I can not say enough good things about this DR. He was my special needs sons doctor sine he was less than a month old. We continued care with Dr Pickens untill he moved back home last year. My son is now 9 years old and we miss him terably. He was by our side when we found out the hard way, though a precudure that my son has a bleeding disorder. His intestines filled with blood and shut down. My son was hospitalized for 3 weeks with a PIC line and NG tube. We were scared. But Dr. Pickens came in on his day off and checked on Liam. He stayed with Liam through everything. He even helped recommend witch specialists and even pediatrician would work best for our son! We just had another long stay in the hospital my son had complications after a surgery. We struggled with other doctors and nurses, that did not know our son well and it was difficult and awful. I know things would have been different had Dr Pickens still been here. He was the most amazing Dr we had ever known. Come back Please

Incredibly unprofessional practice and lacks the community mindedness and empathy we were looking for in a doctor. We literally arrived at 10:16am for a 10:15am appointment and they were unwilling to see us because we were (1) minute late referencing the signs “posted” on the wall. An appointment we had waited (2) months for as well. Kids require flexibility. What if we had to take public transportation or we lived an hour away. What does it say about a practice and group of doctors who do not hold the moral fortitude, especially when working with kids, to understand sometimes things happen and we as parents are just trying our best. It would be my strongest preference not associate with a doctor or practice who holds these views and I recommend other do not as well.

Dr. Pickens is the kind of doctor that gives a tired mama a hug. He made sure we had a way to contact him in case something urgent came up. After a bad endoscopy, he spent 10 minutes drawing me a diagram of the treatment options for my son. He has lifted my non-ambulatory child onto the exam table for me, to give my back a little break. He's let my kids play with his stethoscope, and called me personally to give me medication options and lay out the potential risks and benefits. A GREAT doctor

It's difficult to find the words to describe just how incredible Dr. Pickens is. He's the gold standard that other physicians aspire to be like. There are 2 parts to being an outstanding physician: being the most knowledgeable in your field AND having the compassion and connection with your patients. He has both. As a parent, I don't trust physicians easily. I trust Dr. Pickens with my kids 100% without reservation. He is simply the best.

I’m a high maintenance mom with a lot of questions. I love that Doctor Pickens patiently answers all my questions and doesn’t shy away from me doing my own research. My daughter Bug has been sick for five years and previously had seen a GI from Seattle Children’s with not great results. Although she still had a long road a head I am grateful Dr Pickens is along for the journey. I wouldn’t take my children to anyone else.

Dr Pickens has been our grandson's doctor from birth to 3 1/2 years. We would never take Jack to anyone else for his gastro care. Jack was very ill as an infant and Dr Pickens got us through those times with compassion and excellent care. Jack is now a healthily, thriving youngster. Dr Pickens is an excellent doctor with a wonderful bedside manner. He always addresses Jack directly and makes him feel important. The clinic staff is also terrific. We highly recommend Dr Pickens!!!

I absolutely love Dr. Pickens. I have been seeing him for over 3 years. He is very knowledgeable, kind, and reassuring. He takes the time to explain what is going on so you aren't left feeling confused. I have never had any worries going to see Dr. Pickens as I know he does his very best to help me every time. I highly recommend him, he takes great care of his patients.
