I can’t recommend Dr. Bickman enough. I am new to LA and had been looking for a new OBGYN, so I decided to see Dr. Bickman after reading all of the other glowing comments about her. Scheduling was very easy, and I was able to get an appointment for my annual exam within a week. At the appointment itself, Dr. Bickman was very friendly and knowledgeable, and she really took the time to get to know me, to listen to my medical history and concerns, and to provide quality care. I will definitely be back!

Do not go here. Dr. Tristan Bickman has no respect for her patients. I've seen her twice and both times had a bad experience. The first time she made me wait 1 hour for my appointment, and then saw me for 10 minutes and that was it. The second time I went to her office, I was informed that she was also running at least 1 hour behind, so I told them I couldn't stay and left--a woman, one of her patients, followed me outside and vented to me that she was so frustrated with Dr. Bickman also, because it was like that every time she went there. I went back the next day and finally had my appointment, after waiting for at least 30 minutes. This was two weeks ago. She did a culture and I STILL didn't get the results back. I called her office when it had been 1 week and they told me they'd get back to me and never did. It's completely absurd. I also requested an IUD and I still haven't heard anything about it. Overall a really bad experience. I will not be returning.

I had a great experience with Dr. Bickman. She is experienced, kind, compassionate, and a great communicator. Her office offers convenient hours, a clean waiting room, and friendly front desk staff. She went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and feel like my health concerns were being heard and addressed. I highly recommend Dr. Bickman!

Dr Bickman is amazing. I completely agree with all the positive reviews. She is smart, kind and competent. She has taken care of me for years for my annual exams and issues and now she has just delivered my first baby. She was amazing. It was the best experience I could have ever imagined. She took great care of me and my daughter. She listened to me every step of the way and made sure I was safe and my baby was safe too. She is one of the few doctors left who actually cares about her patients. It is clear she is passionate about what she does so well. She sees you every visit and does your delivery too! Almost non-existent now with healthcare. If you want a doctor that is medically superior and actually cares about her patients too then see Dr Bickman. You will be so happy you did!

Dr Bickman is the best ever. I started seeing her right out of college when I moved to LA and over the past 15 years she has really become like family to my husband and I. When I got pregnant he started coming to my appts with me and he loves her as much as I do. She delivered our first baby last year and we could not have been more thrilled with the experience. She’s calming and so easy to talk to and really helped us through the entire process. She gives each patient her full attention and makes you feel like you are in the best hands (and you are!). I live on the east side and drive across the entire city to see her. She's worth every minute I spend fighting traffic to get there! I can’t recommend her more highly.

Dr Bickman is outstanding. She is thorough and thoughtful. She listens very well to me at each visit and genuinely cares for her patients and their health. She delivered my baby and I couldn't have felt safer. She is very knowledgeable and very well respected in her community. Her bedside manner is kind and compassionate. If you want a practice with a doctor that you will see the same every time, that gets to know you and treats you like a friend, the go see Dr Bickman. You will love her!! I can't wait to have another baby just so I can go see her again!

Dr Bickman is wonderful. I transferred to her half way through my pregnancy, on the recommendation of many friends. I wish I had listened to them sooner. She is smart, and nice and patient. She answered all my questions and always took her time with me. I had a perfect labor and delivery. She made sure that my baby was safe and I was too. I am so grateful to Dr Bickman. Her confidence and competence really showed through at the hospital. I am so grateful she was there for me. I highly recommend Dr Bickman. She is the best!

Dr Bickman is a wonderful doctor. I have been seeing her for over five years and I would never see anyone else. I travel from Portland, Oregon now to see her. She delivered my two children and I had very high risk pregnancies. She knew exactly how to manage my pregnancies and gave me two beautiful children. I trust her with my life and the life of my children. If it wasn't for her they would not be here now. She is also very kind and approachable. I could ask her anything. She is the best doctor I have ever been to and I have seen a lot of doctors, due to my complicated medical history. I will never stop coming to her. I highly recommend her, if you want the best.

I was having a chronic problem that no doctor could figure out. It was effecting my life. I went to see Dr Bickman and she listened to me and examined me thoroughly. She was very understanding and took her time with me. It took us a few visits but now I am cured! I am so happy. I never thought this would go away. I credit Dr BIckman with "fixing" me and taking such good care of me. She is also very friendly and I could tell immediately that she has a lot of experience. Her expertise has changed my life. I highly recommend Dr Bickman. Her assistants and receptionists are really nice too.

Dr Bickman is a wonderful doctor. I was referred to her by my internist. He said she was the best and he was right! I completely trusted him. Dr Bickman is so intelligent, and nice and a very safe doctor. She just delivered my perfect daughter for me. She always answered my questions at the visits and listened to me always. She saw me each visit and stayed with me in labor! It was so special. It is very rare now for doctors to see you always and be with you for the delivery too. I feel so blessed to have been referred to Dr Bickman. She is the smartest doctor I've met!

I was relatively new to LA and did not have an OBGYN when I discovered I was pregnant with my second child. I had had a very rough delivery with my first child that almost cost me and my son our lives, so that, coupled with a recent trip to Brazil and Zika exposure, I was in a bit of a panic over my newly discovered pregnancy. I was referred to Dr. Bickman by a friend of mine and she was a godsend. Dr. Bickman agreed to see me the very next day after I called her office. She reviewed my previous medical history and walked me through all of the reasons that this pregnancy and delivery would be different than the first. Additionally, she had both my husband and I immediately tested for Zika. After the first appointment, I knew I was in good hands. I had to have a scheduled c-section due to the nature of my first delivery, and Dr. Bickman and her team accommodated me changing the delivery date a couple of times. Everything went according to plan and the recovery was easy!

Dr. Bickman is by far the best OBGYN I've ever had. I started seeing her half way through a high risk pregnancy, and she missed no steps and just jumped right in, being helpful and caring in every way. She delivered our son via c-section with no issues whatsoever, even though it was high risk and a million things could have gone wrong. She always makes you feel like you are the most important patient, takes time with you and answers any questions you may have. Entire staff is amazing!

So happy to have found Dr. Bickman! After months of treatments for menopause symptoms that did not improve, I felt I had to find a doctor who would take the Time to help symptoms that were quite severe. Not to mention the emotional stress and fatigue associated with the process. Dr. Bickman has taken the time to address the symptoms and treatments and I’m improving and feeling so much better! She often has followed up with personal emails to make sure I’m feeling fine! The staff is supportive!
