Denver, CO |
Dr. Picerno was very professional, knowledgeable, and reassuring regarding my concerns.
in Denver, Colorado |
Dr. Picerno is a very knowledgeable and absolutely caring doctor, and person. She makes each visit a pleasurable experience, and you feel like you really mattered. I see her regularly for ear wax extraction, and allergy treatment. I was so fortunate when coming to see her in Nov. 2016, with a ear nerve virus, and a loss of hearing, and she knew exactly what to do, and her expertise saved my hearing, as it came back after the prednisone treatment. I feel lucky to have Dr. Picerno for my doctor!
Littleton, CO |

Dr. Picerno was very informative and professional and I would recommend her services to my friends.

This was my first time meeting with a Otolaryngologist. Dr. Picerno was very friendly, explained to me in detail the issues I've been having with my ears, made sure that all my questions were answered, checked my nose and throat as well to make sure nothing else was wrong. She wanted to know about how issues that I may have in general to make sure she covered all the bases. I was grateful for her expertise and the time she took with me. Very thorough! Staff was also very friendly as well!

Dr. Picerno is a no-nonsense, straight-to-the-point physician with tremendous skills and abilities. The moment I walked into the Associates of Otolaryngology's office, I knew that I was going to be taken care of. She went above and beyond to explain exactly what she was doing, as well as background information, and specific procedural information. She answered dozens of questions, always with patience and poise. Her surgical abilities are top-notch. She is well respected amongst her peers.

Wheat Ridge, CO |
Dr. Picerno has been great. Through great testing, we found I needed major sinus surgery. The surgery went well. I then developed several sinus infections and we found a hole in the tissue that needed to be repaired. The level of care and extensive testing has resulted in no sinus infections for 6 weeks and the sinuses are draining as they should. We also found I was allergic to many kinds of grass. The immunotherapy has started to work. So glad I have Dr. Picerno in my corner.

I have seen Dr Picerno for many years, getting Botox, fillers, a Mixto laser peel and consultations. She is extremely knowledgeable and my skin has never looked better.

She was concerned and listened to my symptoms. I felt like I was being heard and not just rushed through the office. It is a large organization and everything I needed was available there in her office. That was kind of nice so I didn't have to see another doctor for my allergy testing.
