Dr. Drickman is an excellent physician, compassionate, and a true listener. She is a great example of what a doctor should be.
terrible wait time. 9 am appointment but not seen by doctor until near 11 am.
Dr Drickman was wonderful with my daughter & spent time to make sure we understand the diagnosis
this visit was a preventitve appointment. everyone was exceptional and I appreciated it!
Dr Drickman is very patient,speaks slowly in an easy way to understand
We love our care provider. She is very personable and helpful. She covers every topic thoroughly. She never rushes and answers all questions.
excellent, thorough, not rushed, caring, treated my child wiyj respect
This was my son's first visit to see Dr. Drickman. She was wonderful!!! She addressed all of our concerns. She was very thorough, patient and informative!
the doctor is very nice. the only complaint is the time that you sit and wait for her. my daughter's appt was at 10am. they took her right back for testing, but then she sat and waited to see the doctor for 90mins! I work in the medical field, so I am aware of unforseen circumstances, but with children, that is unacceptable. my daughter was there for an every 2 year check up, her tests were fine. walking away from your 930 patient for 10 mins, I don't think would be unheard of. we did not leave the office until after 12 noon. she then had to miss her entire day of school because she got out later than she should have.
Dr. D is very thorough and easy to understand. She's personable and responded clearly to my son's questions and concerns about his heart condition.
Good experience trust the provider
The doctor and staff were very professional and courteous. My problem was that we had to wait an hour in the waiting room (for a 9 a.m appointment). It is hard for a child (especially one with special needs--even a typical child) to wait that long for an appointment and be cooperative for a cardiological exams/tests. Especially with the bad flu season, and kids coughing everywhere in there.
the nurse who roomed us was exceptionally nice and caring with both of my children. very personable and explained what would happen and what to expect not only to us but to my six year old. Dr Drickmann was super, very nice and answered questions, showed she really cares
Dr Drickman is always a pleasure.
Dr. Drickman was wonderful! She was patient, compassionate and thorough and I was not hesitant to ask any questions. I would absolutely refer her to anyone needing pediatric cardiology care. Thank you!
she was very thorough and read his file and understood his medical issues before she even came in room!!
very good experience. We waited over an hour to see the doctor, but the wait was worth it. She spent alot of time talking to my child and giving her practical examples of good foods to eat.
Everyone was very professional and took time to answer questions.
as usual, Dr. Drickman and her staff are amazing with our daughter and us.
Dr. Drinkman is by far one of the best doctors and Childrens Hospital. She LISTENS to us.
all staff were really nice, we were seen in a very timely manner. It seems to be a very well oiled machine there.
the provider was absolutely amazing and although we had to wait awhile to see her she was worth the wait!!! I would highly recommend this doctor and her staff.
Dr Drickman is amazing. i have nothing but wonderful things to say in our 7 years with her.
Dr. Drickman is always very friendly and takes the time to make sure we understand everything. We are very happy with the level of care she provides.
the Dr was very attentive and was able to explain our sons condition so that we undersood completely what is going on. she relieved any worries we may have had!
Very positive appointment. Dr. Drickman took her time and made sure all questions, concerns and anything else that came up were answered.
We are very pleased with the staff, Dr., and service that we receive at Children's South
Dr Drickman is amazing! I recommend her to anyone who needs Pedatric cardiology care. She truly loves and cares for her patients.
the cardiologist was very nice and took the right amount of time with my son.
Dr. Drickman is very nice. It was our mistake that missed our first appointment and caused long waiting time.
Dr. Drickman gave our daughter the chance to be a "regular kid". her compassion, thoroughness and all around expertise is amazing. We never feel rushed with her, she takes all the time she needs and it's so appreciated.
very pleasant visit, great staff am very attentive Dr
Alicia(I believe her name is) was so sweet with my daughter as she was a bit fussy and wanted to leave. she played with her with toys and took her out to walk around while Dr.Drickman spoke with me. Dr.Drickman is phenomenal!
Dr. Drickmann is not only extremely well-informed, but she takes time with you when you come to see her to listen, review test results with you, and explain things thoroughly. You never feel like she is rushing to get through the appointment. She has a very pleasant and caring bedside manner which really fosters good communication and trust! It is clear that she went into medicine for the right reasons.
Very good experience. We did not have to wait and the tests were done promptly. Dr. Drickman spent a good bit of time with us and answered all questions. Everyone was very kind and patient.
We have seen Doc Drickman since my son was 4 days old and he is now 9 1/2. I don't know what we would do without her. She is fantastic, such a caring, compassionate, and patient physician. I can't help but smile when I talk about her to others. She really cares for her patients and loves her job.
Dr. Drickman is a wonderful knowledgable doctor. i couldn't have wished for better.
Excellent team at Children's South- well informed, caring, timely. I have recommended them often.
This visit was comforting as the MD explained in detail my daughter's condition including my daughter in the conversation with compassion & support. Thank you!
Dr. Drickman was unbelievably helpful, caring, compassionate and knowledgeable. She spent an extended amount of time with us ensuring all areas of concern were addressed and we had good resources to utilize moving forward. we had not had the greatest experience at Children's ER earlier in the week nor with our pediatrician and she renewed our faith in physicians. I would recommend her to anyone and she may be the only reason we continue to utilize CHP
Dr. Drickman was courteous, respectful and easy to understand.
Every member of the staff was amazing!
This was our second visit with Dr.Drickman. we waited a an hour and a half to see her but we're aware that she was running behind. I believe she is thorough and gives each patient the time they need and sometimes that can run over alloted scheduled times and we respect that she devotes what time she deems needed for each patient as we would expect the same if needed. She was friendly,patient kind and professional. Her assistantv that day was so informative and so friendly and patient. We had an overall fantastic experience and look forward to our next appointment. I also want to add that we only see her once a year for my child's heart murmur.
I can't give high enough praise for Dr. Drickman. She is an excellent doctor and was very thorough in her examinations, very professional, excellent with the kids, explained everything in amazing detail and in ways we could all understand. I am thankful for her expertise.
Dr Drickman is fantastic! She gives personal, loving care! She loves my daughter and genuinely cares about her health!
She really took the time to understand my concerns, provide meaningful solutions, relate them to my life and ensure I understood how I could improve my health.
