Let me start by saying I never leave negative reviews, however, I feel that I need to speak up on this one. When I was under Dr. Pickering's care, I was at his office probably more than any other patient getting fed antibiotics over and over. I was clearly sick, something was wrong, I was crying hysterical in his office begging for him to run blood tests and he said "I can't test everything" and I asked to test for anything especially auto-immune tests since I was diagnosed hypo-thyroid. He refused. He looked me in the eye at one of the lowest points in my life and said "Tests are a waste of time and money and all it will do is worry you." I will never forget those words. It is now a few years later and I was recently diagnosed with chronic lyme disease. I have been treating it for two years now and life has been hell. Yes, Dr. Pickering comes off as a very kind and personable person. But he failed me. I will carry that with me for the rest of my life that he did not run any of the tests I asked for and my insurance covered. If you want to be given antibiotics at every visit, which, especially if you have a problem like mine, will make you worse, than continue to see this doctor. If you want to be HEALED and not dismissed, choose someone else. I wonder every day if he would have ran those tests how my life would be today. I would still be a teacher, I wouldn't have lost 65 pounds, and I wouldn't have been in the ER twice a month for being so ill. There is no going back now, I am getting the proper medical attention from a doctor who actually listens to me and works with me to help CURE ME. Not just treat the symptoms and never look into anything else.
