Dr Bichefsky truly cares about the whole being of her patients. She actually spends time with them to get to the real issues

If you make an appointment at this office, take a sleeping bag with you! I waited an hour and a half past my appointment time to see the doctor, who then got interrupted 3 different times while in the room with me. First of all, who has that kind of time to sit and wait for the doctor? I certainly don't, and my time is just as important as hers is. And the interruptions are inexcusable. I think she is smart, and probably a good doctor, but I won't be returning. Just can't wait that long.

I arrived at 5:15 for a 6pm appointment and was in the waiting room until 7pm. Then I waited another 20 minutes in the doctors room to be seen by Dr. Bichefsky for all of 10 minutes. (routine med check.)

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Bichefsky's Care Philosophy

It has always been my philosophy that the most important trait of a good physician is that the physician listens to the patient. The physician and patient need to work together, in unison, to come up with a care plan that will be most beneficial for the patient. Addressing not only the obvious medical disorder, but also how the person interacts with the day to day challenges. I always advise toward a healthy lifestyle, addressing lifestyle choices, exercise and diet.
