Denver, CO |
Dr. Picerno, listened attentively and understood my concerns. I was extremely pleased with her and her practice in general. She took the time to explain the medical procedure she was doing.
in Denver, CO |
I am so thankful for the level of care I have received from Dr. Picerno and her staff. I have had major sinus surgery and multiple follow-ups to get my health back on track. Her persistence to find the root causes of the infections has had a great outcome so far. I have started allergy immunotherapy and that is going great. Dr. Picerno in MHO has made my life much easier. I feel stronger than I have in years, so thank you Dr. P{icerno!

Great experience. Would recommend this practice for sure.
in Westminster, CO |
Dr. Picerno removed my tonsils. She did an excellent job in warning me about what to expect after my surgery and also how to take care of myself to have a speedy recovery. I am only a couple days into my recovery, but I feel as though I was fully prepared for what to expect.

Dr. Picerno was very professional, knowledgeable, and reassuring regarding my concerns.

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!

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!

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.
