Patient Comments (5)
in Middletown NJ |
Before my appointment someone called me and talked me through the whole process. Dr Bickerton was great. He asked lots of questions, explained everything clearly, did a physical examination, all as expected. His staff were busy, but very efficient. I arrived at 9.27am and was walking out the door at 10.27 - and I was a new patient so they had to ask lots of questions and fill in lots of paperwork. Very satisfied with my experience and feel confident that I am in good hands.

Dr. Bickerton practices medicine on a laptop. He try's to send patients for treatment at facilities he has a financial interest in when there are facilities that do the same treatments much closer to his office. Office staff treats a person like a statistic. Office is run like a mass production mill. No, I would not recommend.

Very caring and intelligent. Responsive to questions. Judgement is first class - I trust his judgement completely.

Don't waste your time scheduling an appointment with this practice. I had three appointments set up I waited over an hour and a half for each appointment still not to be seen and rescheduled each appointment. After the 4th time I left and will not return. When approaching the staff frustrated they're rude to you and expect you to sit there as long as it takes to see the doctor without any updates or informing you when you may be seen. In total I wasted 4 1/2 to 5 hours sitting in the lobby

I have been using Dr. Bickerton for years, it is tough to get an appointment, but when you do he is very patient and goes over everything . I have trusted him with an important part of my body.
