He has treated me for A-Fib for several years.

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.
in Mount Juliet, TN |
Dr. Pickett is a warm and caring practitioner who takes the time to understand and consider options for treatment. I am in the health care world and know the way the system works. He give you support when tough decisions may need to be made. I am totally confident with him as my doc.
