I *love* Dr. Bickman. I found her on ZocDoc right after the at home test was positive. Her bedside manner is straightforward and un-fussy, which I love. She explained medical topics in layman's terms, and answered panicked phone calls in the wee hours. I came to really enjoy our visits (she's hilarious) and by the end of my pregnancy I was bummed I wasn't going to get to see her weekly! She's also responsive over email. I delivered my beautiful son last week. My husband and I spent a good amount of time considering getting a doula. We were concerned about being bullied into medical decisions for the sake of insurance - specifically, for the sake of the hospital maximizing profits with procedures insurance would subsidize and/or artificially shortening the duration of labor . In the end, we decided not to get a doula. Turns out, Dr. Bickman was all the advocate we needed! At one point I heard Dr. Bickman say "She wants an epidural! Get her an epidural!" (I was pretty far dilated at that point...) The wait times in the office can be a little rough. Protip: book the first appointment in the morning and you'll do a lot less waiting. I actually think the 8:15 slot is reserved exclusively for ZocDoc-ers. Keep in mind that the reason wait times are longer is because if someone needs an emergency C-section (or is about to start pushing, etc.), Dr. Bickman is out the door and at the hospital. That gave me a lot of comfort knowing she'd bust her bum to be by my side when I delivered (and she did)! Another Protip: Insurance companies are, as we know, terrible. When you go to the office for the first visit, ask which labs they use, check which ones are covered by your insurance (you'll have to ask your insurance company), and ask the office to work exclusively with whichever labs are covered.
