DR PICO AND THE REST OF THESE DOCTORS THAT TAKE AWAY SOMEONE'S PAIN MEDS FOR NO REASON BUT TO CAUSE HARM AND FURTHER PAIN SHOULD BE REPORTED TO THE AZ MEDICAL BOARD FOR THE MALPRACTICE, ABUSE, NEGLECT AND MISTREATMENT OF THE CHRONICALLY ILL PAIN PATIENT!!! YOU WOULD NOT TAKE AWAY INSULIN FROM A DIABETIC OR TREAT HIM LIKE AN ADDICT BECAUSE THE MEDICATION HE USES EVERYDAY WORKS AND SOMETIME HAS TO BE INCREASED TO CONTINUE WORKING?? THERE SHOULD BE LAWS THAT PROTECT PATIENTS THAT ARE ESTABLISHED.

He performed a cervical epidural for pain radiating down my left shoulder and arm without mild sedation (my choice). In the procedure room, and without explanation, he stabs the needle into my back and says "a poke and a burn". It was a series of pokes and massive pain which made me scream. Dr Pico's bed manner is horrible! He met me before the procedure and he was cold and indifferent. It was obvious he didn't care about me as a person. He just wanted my insurance money. I felt violated.
in Gilbert, AZ |
Office staff: uncaring, terrible communication, curt, unhelpful. Paperwork: 8 double sided pages of extensive questions. Even when they already have your medical records. Plan on one hour to fill out paperwork if you are in pain and have extensive health history. Doctor: I am sorry to say I never got to meet him, had to reschedule due to paperwork taking all the time! This could have all been avoided if they had sent paperwork before appointment or told me to bring a complete health history!
in Casa Grande, Az |
I like Dr. Pico and crew because they prepped me carefully and explained everything. I had this nerve pain down the back of left leg but after 3 injections in 3 weeks , it was gone. It has been over 2 years and am ready for another visit. They are careful and clean. And after it over, you visit the rest area room and get a treat and some oj! The lady there is a sweetheart. She is mellow and smiles and makes you feel ok.
