Dr Tristan is always the doctor who cares about their patients. The staffs are also very kind. But waiting time is something the doctor office has to improve. Since doctor is very busy, I can understand it.

She was an excellent dr and very attentive. I loved her follow up with me after our appointments and her prompt response time to my emails. She was also very prompt in reaching out to me after our appointment to either let me know how my previous appointment went, any test results I needed to know, and to simply check in. Her wait time was quite long and I did have my appointment moved a few times, but they were prompt and professional to get me booked again. The dr. was also apologetic for the wait time as well. Thanks!!!

I've been going to Dr. Bickman for about 10 years now -- she's amazing and the long wait time is because she's so in demand. That being said, I don't mind the wait time as long as I can continue to go to her!

Dr. Bickman is extremely delightful and knowledgeable. Thanks to Zocdoc.com I was able to find an amazing doctor near me who genuinely cares for her patients. The front desk attendants were also delightful and professional. I wish there was parking, but nonetheless, I love the convenience of getting to Dr. Bickman from my home.

Best OB/GYN I've ever had. You just have to be willing to deal with wait times because she tends to have deliveries and thus runs late. Schedule an appointment on a day or time of day that you aren't busy and bring work or busy work to do in the waiting room or exam room. Other than the wait she was kind friendly, smart and very efficient.

The doctor was efficient, qualified and knowledgeable to conduct my annual women's wellness exam (most important to me); she was also friendly. Wait time was about 15 minutes after initial check-in. I did submit my paperwork electronically in advance but still had to sign two additional physical pages on arrival, fill out one more page of medical info (why could that not be done through ZocDoc?), and was asked to handwrite my name and address on a postcard-sized card (why did I have to do that when they already had that info). Television in wait area was on and playing CNN (blech--not relaxing), so I asked admin if we could turn it off, and she said yes; no problem. Exam rooms were not soundproofed, so you could hear the appointment next to you (something regarding the sound comes through the vents), so advice is to speak quietly in the exam room if you're sensitive to that (didn't bother me much but I noticed it).

As other reviewers have commented, it is an extremely long wait (I waited about 2 hours and that seems to be fairly normal). However, the entire staff is very nice and accommodating concerning the wait, and just in general. And Dr. Bickman is extremely nice and doesn't seem rushed once you do see her. I do think that the quality of care from Dr. Bickman is worth the wait - just be prepared for it and bring some work with you.

First things first: be prepared to wait over an hour, well past your appointment time – the office is extremely busy but for good reason. Dr. Bickman is amazing. She is very knowledgable, confident and warm yet, extremely straight forward and will tell you like it is. I am so glad I found Dr. Bickman. She's a keeper!

She was so sweet and made me feel extremely comfortable... And I'm terrified of the doctor (had avoided it for 2 years). Felt very safe and the whole team was helpful. Woman who took my blood work Calmed me while I threw a mini needle tantrum! Excited to have a new gyno I love.

To be honest I did not really enjoy my visit with Dr Bickman. It felt as she had no interest in helping me, and gave me very little information about my options for birth control. I came in hoping she would speak with me more in depth about IUDs but I felt more or less like she didn't want to talk with me, and that I was required to do my own research rather than get personal advice from the doctor I pay to see.

Tristan (how Dr. Bickman introduces herself) is very knowledgeable and informative - she makes you feel at ease right away. I would highly recommend her to anyone who's never been able to find a doctor they feel comfortable with. Thank you, Dr! :-)

Was in need of a last minute appointment and found Dr. Bickman on ZocDoc. So glad I decided to make an appointment with her! Came in for my appointment at 2:30pm, filled out the new patient forms, met with the doctor, and was out by 3:30pm. It's easy to see Dr. Bickman knows her stuff and values her patients' time and comfort. Will definitely be coming back to see her for future appointments.

Look. You're going to wait. She attends the births of her patients, so if you have somewhere to be, she might not be the doctor for you. But she was so nice and knowledgeable and I already love her. But again, for regular checkups, she's probably not a good choice.
