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.
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!
Excellent team at Children's South- well informed, caring, timely. I have recommended them often.
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.
I love this doctor as she helped us for years before and now after open heart surgery.
First visit with this doctor and I was very impressed with her. Her bedside manner was amazing. She was very knowledgable and was very good at conveying that information in lay mans terms. I was very pleased with this doctor and the results of this visit.
I was very impressed with the professionalism and helpfulness of the the entire staff...they were all so nice and friendly...the dr is awesome I really like her!
Dr. Drickman is fantastic - I would recommend her to anyone. The only complaint I have is with the wait time. Over an hour in the exam room before she arrived.
Dr. Drickman is amazing and love her and her style!!
Very good experience
They are very good with my daughter no complaints
Excellent staff and doctor. Everyone was so kind, courteous and helpful. They made the appointent go.very smoothly.
We have seen Dr. Drickman for 8 yrs now and she has always provided exceptional care. We wouldn't trade her for the world !
Dr. Drickman was very friendly and nice. She was running behind and the appointment took much longer than I expected, but I really like when the doctor apologizes for this and Dr. Drickman did so!!! My son and daughter were new patients and that is the reason she didn't know our prior medical history as mentioned in this survey. She did an excellent job in understanding their father's health history and explaining!!!
my daughter had a frightening episode during sports camp and the receptionist worked hard to secure an appointment ASAP. the doctor and nurses were thorough and friendly and the nurse administering tests was very respectful of my daughters privacy and modesty. Even though our appointment was at the end of the day, the doctor and staff were friendly and took their time. I have already recommended this doctor to another friend.
exceptional care provider. expert. empathetic. approachable.
She is the BEST!!
We love Dr. Drickman!
