Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Pickett implanted my pacemaker about two years ago. It made a great difference in my energy and in everyday living. He is low key and doesn't get the patient excited or worried. I would recommend him to anyone needing a pacemaker.

First saw Dr. Pickett in hospital. He was very insightful and got me out of intensive care in short time.

Dr. Pickett is a very good doctor, he was concerned about putting a pacemaker in me four years ago because he said they didn't like putting a pacemaker in someone of my age, to young. but they really had no other choice, I wouldn't trade him for the world, he's the best.
