  Overall Patient Rating - June 2019
it seems clear that dr Picozzi is very busy and that his primary goal is to treat and cure pancreatic cancer... he often had to wait for lab results which made things stressful at times as he wanted to provide safe treatment and it created long waits at times.

  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
his answers were all monosyllabic. He seemed bored and uncaring. I also don't know why he chose the treatment he did.

I appreciated that he told me he wanted to consult with a lung specialist before sharing VT scan info mir

Dr. Picozzi is very nice, very friendly, very patient and really knowledgeable. The best doctor I have ever had! The Rx Specialist, Aries, at his office worked really hard to help me to get the really expensive medicine from the manufacturer for free! Both Dr. Picozzi and Aries really care about me! Thank you so much!
