      Not only is Dr. Pickens and exceptional pediatric GI provider, he comes with genuine care, compassion and concern for his patients and their family. He has impeccable bedside manner and treats each patient and their family as a priority. He is always knowledgeable in the most up to date medical evidence and uses sound judgement, his experience and expertise, current and historic medical literature and best practices, as well as a family’s unique preferences, cultural practices, and comfort level to guide his decision making and recommendations. He welcomes/respects his patients and their family as a part of the medical team, carefully listening to feedback and needs. We look forward to a long term relationship for our child with Dr. Pickens, to help him learn to manage his condition and become a capable and empowered patient.
