Dr Hickman is the best. Hands down. He listens to you and what you have to say. He talks to his patients and takes the time to understand their concerns. Yes, medically ,he knows his stuff. But a doc that does not have the time to answer my questions, I don't need. Dr. Hickman checks off all the blocks for me and I recommend him to ppl like me that value docs that spent time with you.

Dr. Hickman's Office gets me in quickly and on time. He is very personable, spends time with you and answers all questions. Never in a rush. He follows up and refers his patients to other good specialists. He comes across as more than a doctor, but also a friend. In an emergency, he will fit you in.

Good luck getting in. As of August 2018, not accepting new patients and I waited over a week for someone to call me back to tell me he wasn't accepting new patients. I sought him out because of his grades here, and I thought you should know.
