Dr. Pickering is great! He took the time to not only understand my needs and concerns medically but also took time to connect with me as a person. I didn't feel rushed like I have with many past doctors throughout my life. It felt like he had nowhere else to be but helping me: that's huge. I have been searching for a new primary care doctor and after one visit I'm sure Dr. Pickering is the one.
