Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bickman "My goal is to provide excellent, personalized care to women of all ages. I chose not to join a group practice because I prefer to build a 1:1 relationship with each of my patients. I feel that a patient should know exactly who will be showing up when they are delivering a baby. On the wellness and gynecology side, I feel strongly that my patients should feel comfortable enough to ask me anything. Open and easy communication with your doctor is important in preventing a lot of health issues."

I have been seeing Dr Bickman for 12 years now, and she has always been approachable and willing to listen to all of my questions or concerns. She is a no-nonsense doctor who is quick to respond to questions or concerns, even on holiday and weekends.

We love Dr. Bickman. I was hospitalized with my identical twins at 23 weeks and Dr. Bickman visited me everyday at the hospital. Without her I'm not sure how I would have gotten through the day. I highly recommend her.
