About Me

Care Philosophy

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...

I saw Dr. Bickman for what was my first ever gyno appointment. Huge mistake. I waited for over 2 hours to see the doctor, and then she only spoke to me for about 7-10 minutes. She was incredibly brusk, dismissive of my concerns, and impatient, although I warned her it was my first time and that I...Read More

Dr. Bickman has been my doctor for many years but I happened to have a surgical procedure done by her yesterday that prompted this review. I couldn’t possibly think more highly of any doctor.

Yes, the insertion is painful, but your periods after I feel are in part up to you. My first one was heavier and lasted a little...Read More

Her bedside manner is the reason why I go to her, no matter how crazy busy the day is, Dr Bickman has a smile on her face and takes the time to answer questions. I never felt...Read More
