this truly amazes me how ppl have given Dr. Bivens a 1 star rating; but then again, he isn't a dr tht will give what u want, he gives what u need.. I love my dr. Dr Bivens has always been right on.. I suffer from kidney disease, he has always been on me to keep my labs up, he shows love and concern constantly.. I recently took a friend to him who has diabetes, and she has stopped alot of her meds, he was so concerned, he took her as his patient and showed her the same caring and love he has always showed me. He even took her shoe and sock off himself, and REPLACED it nicely, whn i said i could do tht, he looked at me and said, "i took it off i can put it back on".. WHAT DR DOES THT?? Thn my friend asked if he thought she could ever be off insulin, & his reply was, "I BELIEVE IN THE IMPOSSIBLE".. what an awesome thing to say... I BELIEVE IN THE IMPOSSIBLE... WOW... Thank u Dr. Bivens for all ur care.. I completely APPRECIATE all u have done for me and my family... God bless u always

Dr. Bivens has been a great doctor for me. Very caring and thorough. Many complaints seem to be about the amount of time it takes to see him, and those complaints are valid. When you are good, you have a lot of people wanting to be your patient. I don't know what the answer is to this problem, but for me it is worth the wait. For critical or time sensitive issues, I use urget care or the hospital.

Where to start?!! They say they will call results.. they don’t, even if the patient is in excruciating pain. The nurses don’t seem to follow the doctor’s (well , Nurse practitioner, because good luck getting in to see the actual doctor in a reasonable time frame!) orders from what I’m seeing and hearing from the Nurse Practitioner. They automatically want to prescribe antibiotics , treating the symptoms!, before even finding out what is going on. It’s your basic Henry Ford Allegiance care.

I discovered Dr. Bivens many years ago when my doctor retired. What a pleasant surprise. He has been excellent and now cares for my entire family. I know he cares about me as a person (not just another patient) and his staff expresses the same compassion as the doctor.

Dr. Bivens and the staff are great but it is impossible to get in when you are not feeling well. Did not matter how sick i was or how flexible my schedule, it would be days out before i could get in or my family. This happened every time i called...the only time i could get in was for pre-scheduled well visits done weeks in advance. Ended up having to go to the med station and pay extra money because i could never get in. Finally I had to switch primary care offices so that i was taken care of.
