Dr. Hickman and his staff were the absolute best. Dr. Hickman was passionate, knowledgeable, attentive and I never felt 'rushed' as you feel with some doctors. I had a bit of a scare on one Friday night and was able to get in touch with the on-call nurse and she scheduled for me to come in for an ultrasound the following morning to ease my worries. Also, my assigned nurse always called me back in a timely fashion whenever I left her messages.

Dr. Hickman is excellent. He is one Dr you always feel open with, he understands where you are coming from and when it comes to his job, he is amazing. Cannot think think of anything negative to say about this team but to sing praises about them. Never have I had a bad experience. I would recommend him anyway.

I have mixed emotions. I had a failed IVF cycle with this clinic and Dr. Hickman. Despite everything progressing along "as it should" and despite the fact I had great embryos at day #5, it was a failure. I think the hardest thing for me was the lack of human empathy as you are going through this. It's so unbelievably stressful. Your whole life is on hold. You are rushing to appointments before and after work. Most of the time, Dr Hickman was very busy and seemed to barely "fit me in". I felt like I was on a conveyor belt. When the cycle was confirmed to be a failure I got no phone call or personal contact from my own doctor. Only a call from my nurse telling me to stop my hormones. I'm heart broken and I just want to speak with someone who can help me process this... and I didn't get that at this clinic at all.

Dr. Hickman was great. Very thorough with all questions and concerns. Houston IVF made a complicated and stressful process easy to understand and eased any concerns I brought up.
