I just started consulting with her. She is marvelous. Set up a multi-pronged plan to tackle chronic back pain...degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, stenosis and spondylolisthesis. Already I trust her. Cautious but accommodating. I have a physically demanding job as a caretaker so I need realistic options. Caring and attentive to concerns. Try her...you'll like her!

Have never posted a review for a doctor before but really have to for Dr. Wickman. The short version is that she did a perfect job on my recent neck surgery. She spent time with us to make sure we were fully informed, and the procedure and recovery went precisely as she had said. The follow-up from her team at Alta was great. Back or neck surgery can be a little scary. Dr. Wickman really did a great job. After meeting with multiple surgeons, we are very happy that we went with Dr. Wickman.

What sets Dr. Wickman apart from other doctors is that she is not only a talented surgeon, but also a genuinely kind and caring person. She spent a lot of time weighing the decision to have surgery with me, and I'm happy that we went forward with it. I have no doubt she keeps my best interests in mind when treating my back injury, and I'm grateful to have her as my doctor.
