Patient Comments (4)
in Lilburn, GA |
Dr. Pickford performed sinus surgery on me. He was very flexible, squeezing me in as a new patient and having my surgery done within two weeks so I could get it done before my deductible kicked in new in January. He had great bedside manners and was very helpful throughout the process.

I went to Dr Pickford for a sinus surgery procedure. After the surgery I still had concerns and residual symptoms. I tried to address these concerns with him at follow up appointments and he was noticeably annoyed. His bedside manner is significantly lacking. To address my concerns that were not resolved I sought a second opinion at a different office and found out my sinus surgery was totally unsuccessful and will now have to have another one. I would not recommend this physician to anyone.
Dr.Pickford is well knowledge and very kind person but his staff especially the blond lady who works in frond desk is rude and impolite.

I'm really surprised that Dr. Pickford's rating is average. I went to him for not only for sinus congestion surgery but also for surgical sleep apnea treatment. He was exceptionally knowledgable about my options. Post surgery I not only have clear sinuses but I've also been able to stop using my CPAP. I feel he's a gifted surgeon and have already recommended him to some of my friends.
