Dr. Fickel has the ability to see the whole of me, orders test and procedures to completely figure out whatever is my health concern, she is rigorous in following up with me. We use MyChart. She's the best Primary Care Physician I've ever had. I have encouraged others who are looking for a PCP to consider becoming on of her patients.
