I have a complex medical situation and Mary Pickett is very attentive and helpful about every issue I bring up. I am very grateful for that.

She is really wonderful and took the time needed to go through my list of questions and concerns.

I had a medical problem that presented after I had scheduled this appointment. So, most of the time was devoted to the new problem, leaving too little time to review all of my chronic conditions. Decisions and recommendations were made sufficient for the near term.

Dr. Pickett is very easy to talk to, and is an outstanding listener. She provides alternatives to discuss as opposed to issuing orders.

dr Pickett called me on the phone twice the day of my appointment and two additional times a few days later to ensure I was ok! Amazing Dr and very caring!

Mary Pickett is the best, most thorough and creative physician I have ever come in contact with. My situation is complex and rare and she has been key in discovery and treatment over many years.

I had an EKG toward the end of my visit. It was irregular. Dr. Pickett had spent quite a bit of time with me before getting the results of the EKG, and was a bit rushed as she explained that I needed to have another test. I understand that she had probably run out of time. I GREATLY appreciate that she phoned me (unsolicited) the following Monday to tell me more about the plan for checking on my heart function. She had looked back on my records and reconsidered the EKG results.

i was glad to see Dr. Pickett again, because my circumstances have improved greatly since I saw her last about 2 years ago...so we could have talked longer just being happy together, but she was professional and didn't let my enthusiasm sidetrack us. she looked on-line for a couple of national board (?) recommendations re: spacing of tests specific to me and my health record ..(Pap smear, mammogram for DES daughter)

Dr. Pickett is always patient and kind, sympathetic and understanding, and on this visit she was especially so.

Dr. Mary Pickett was OUTSTANDING in every way! Very thorough, careful, kind, and thoughtful. I would rate her as one of the best physicians I have ever seen in my life and I am 69 years old with lots of experience with doctors!

Enter data into software. Apply answer. I feel like a number. Over 65, direction is driven by software, personal & family history don't seem to have any part in decisions.

Dr. Pickett is often not available. I saw two other doctors in the office before Dr. Pickett. I feel that I would have been spared a lot of aggravation and expense had I been able to see her when I first became ill. Her availability (or lack there of) is the only reason I would not recommend her. She is an excellent doctor.

dr Pickett takes what ever time is needed to explain any issues that I might have. she is very caring, supportive but still, maintains appropriate guidelines concerning prescribing medicine and tests. Dr Pickett is truly one in a million Dr.'s!

Dr. Pickett was amazing - I have never had a doctor take so much time with me. I can't tell you how much I appreciated it.

I had a PPD placed during this visit and had to inquire later that day about the process for having the PPD interpreted. Otherwise the instructions were excellent
