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!

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 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!
