Ratings for Dr. Annette Bicher
Difficult to reach anyone by phone. Had to give $500 deposit for surgery and a month later still no insurance claim so out of pocket amounts not reported. Gave me another patient's info (her name and type of cancer). Released medical records without telling me to an unauthorized disability group. Surgeon is good, staff is horrible.
I believe I am still here because of this surgeon. I am 3 years past surgery for grade 1a, stage 1 uterine cancer. She has a busy practice and has a direct and focused manner. She's not effusive or especially warm/fuzzy but she conveys a deep interest in her patients and a profound commitment to women's health that made me feel safe. I was always aware of many other women patients in the waiting room and treatment areas who were less lucky than I, and I would never have wanted to take more time than I needed from the doctor or staff. But I never felt short-changed, and it's the first place I would suggest for any friend there with gyn-oncology issues.
I'm sure that Dr. Bicher (and God) saved my life from ovarian cancer (2005). She was extremely professional, knowledgeable and caring every time I saw her -- pre-total hysterectomy, on the phone to explain the pathologies, and for each of the visits.
Diagnosed with aggressive, high grade uterine cancer three years ago. I credit Dr. Bicher and God with still being on this earth. She was wonderful and caring and obviously knew how to deal with a rare, aggressive cancer! She takes time when one needs it but does have a very busy schedule so is often a little late. Her chemo staff is wonderful! I can't say enough about them. Office staff--hard to get to talk to a real person sometimes. Dr. Bicher gets five stars from me!
Dr. Bicher was my oncologist who removed my ovarian cancer. She performed the surgery in May of 2011. A few months after the surgery I developed a hernia on the incision and when I showed it to her and asked her if the pain that I was experiencing which felt like twisted intestines and the bulge that was visibly showing on my belly was hernia she said "no" and gave me a vaginal dialator. The pain persited and I went to another doctor within 5 days who confirmed that I had hernia. I had the second surgery in December. I don't recommend Dr. Bicher. I would not allow her to perform surgery on me or my family members.
Her staff is horrible, they contradict each other and are very unwilling to assist with getting a second opinion when the doctor herself was conflicted on the diagnosis. They are more set on subjecting a patient to chemo without knowing for sure what the problem is. You are more a statistic than a human being.
