Very good experience.

March 24, 2020 4:56 PM

Dr Bicahlo is very personable which is what I look for in a doctor. She makes me comfortable in talking about health issues I may have.

March 24, 2020 4:56 PM

Very good experience

March 17, 2020 11:49 AM

Excellent physician.

March 14, 2020 9:18 AM

Dr. Bicolo is a lovely dr. kind compassionate and extremely relatable and knowledgeable. wonderful bedside manner.

March 7, 2020 11:26 AM

Dr Bicahlo is a great physician and she always seems very genuine and concerned about my health, which is how it should be with all physicians. She is always very gentle in regards to the actual physical aspect the check up.

March 7, 2020 11:26 AM

Dr Bicalho is very genuine and has an excellent bedside manner which is unfortunately not always the case with health care professionals. She's the best! I would be hesitant to recommend her to others only because she seems to already be so overbooked with new patients. The physician's aid who took my initial vitals was not very friendly, she made very eye contact and seemed to be bothered by her with position. A simple smile and eye contact goes a very long way. I'm fed up with all businesses that are in customer care where some staff give very little positive attention to customers and patients.

March 3, 2020 10:49 AM

Dr. Silvia Bicalho is an excellent doctor. I am so happy having her as my doctor. She is amazing.

March 3, 2020 10:49 AM

Excellent.

January 18, 2020 7:30 PM

The best experience! I have nothing bad to say

January 13, 2020 9:42 PM

Routine annual exam/PAP. I have been seeing Dr. Bicalho for over 20 years. Her obstetrics office has delivered both of my children at IMMC.

January 13, 2020 9:42 PM

All positive experiences with this provider and office.

December 30, 2019 1:23 PM

Dr. Bicalho is a great provider and met my needs for the appointment.

December 24, 2019 1:44 PM

She's a excellent gynecologist. She's a great listener and takes time with her patients.

December 14, 2019 4:19 AM

Very professional visit. Dr. listened to me and provided excellent health advice.

December 14, 2019 4:19 AM

Excellent experience!

November 24, 2019 6:43 PM

Dr. Silvia Bicalho is a professional, kind and excellent doctor.

November 3, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho is the best!

October 25, 2019 7:00 PM

I felt very well-informed, taken care of and understood. Your level of empathy for your patients is remarkable. Thank you for your support!

October 6, 2019 7:00 PM

I love Dr. Bicahlo and her staff.

September 30, 2019 7:00 PM

This was my first visit with this provider. I really like her and felt very comfortable discussing health issues and asking questions.

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

Sylvia is my OB-GYN. I had an issue, called for a special appointment, and was able to Sylvia in a reasonable amount of time. Sylvia listened to my concerns, examined me, and we talked about alternatives including seeing a urogynecolonist to rule out any bladder issues as well as undergoing some PT for some pelvic exercises. Simply put, Sylvia is the best and a genuine asset to AIMMC.

September 5, 2019 7:00 PM

Came in for my annual exam. Exam performed, test ordered and dr. left the room. It appears that I could be pre-menopausal and I had questions, however, once she left the room visit was over. I felt rushed and disappointed.

September 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho is wonderful. She's very attentive and listens to my questions. The staff are always courteous and professional.

September 2, 2019 7:00 PM

everyone was very nice!

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Love this provider but wait times have been long recently.

August 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho is always very nice. Glad I have her!

August 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho was just the doctor I was hoping to have for my healthcare. She was compassionate, easy to talk with, understood my concerns, & offered me excellent advice. I was so pleased to have her as my new Gynecologist. It was my first visit & I wish I had known her years ago. Dr. Bicalho is the best.

August 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho is a great physician. She always spends a lot of time with me and answers all of my questions. I never feel like the appointment is rushed. Dr. Bicalho has a way about her that is comforting and I have confidence in her ability to provide the best care possible. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

July 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho is a wonderful person and an amazing doctor. I continue to work with Advocate because of how sincere and kind she is.

July 26, 2019 7:00 PM

I have been a patient of Dr Bibalbo for over 20 years love her

July 22, 2019 7:00 PM

extremely kind, thoughtful, caring and friendly

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Great

July 5, 2019 7:00 PM

Very tentative and seemed truly concerned with my issues and listened to me. Previously seen doctors that over talked me and disregarded my concerns and simply tried to push medication on me, but I did not get any of that during this visit. She was quick and efficient during my visit, and even called me herself with test results! Never had that happen before from other doctors.

June 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Fantastic.

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

I didn't see the provider until almost an hour after my scheduled appointment time. I waited about 20 minutes in the waiting room, then went back with the nurse to get my vitals checked and be ready for the provider, and then it was another 30 minutes until I saw the doctor

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

it didn't really feel like she was listening to what I had to say / she didn't seem to have the willingness other providers had to offer alternative solutions to issues I had

May 11, 2019 7:00 PM

I have been going with Dr. Bichalo for years now and is always good to see a Dr. like her. Polite, understanding and experienced.

May 3, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bichalo did her best to make me feel comfortable as a trans masculine male and I applaud her for that! she's very sweet kind and considerate! I would recommend her for anyone who's seeking to go through this procedure!

April 26, 2019 7:00 PM

compassionate, gentle, easy to ask hard questions to, warm

April 21, 2019 7:00 PM

I am really glad I found Dr. Bicalho. She is so nice and professional. I trust her and I am glad she is my doctor.

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho listened to my concerns and made great suggestions. She also suggested preventative means for my health.

April 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sylvia Bicalho is the most amazing obgyn ever. I have recommended her to anyone I can, and I have been seeing her since around 1998. She is kind, knowledgeable, intuitive.

March 6, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho is wonderful. Love her!!

March 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho makes me feel very comfortable she listens & spends an appropriate amount of time w/me & makes sure my questions are answered.

March 2, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. B is thorough and an excellent Physician! I appreciate her and all of her colleagues in her office (Physicians, Nurses, Assistants, Office Staff). Thank you.

February 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bicahlo is amazing and I have referred her to friends because she is so experienced and knowledgeable and also open to listening to all your concerns and answering all of your questions she always puts me at such ease

February 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bichalo is very sweet and caring.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

The doctor and her staff are all very professional and friendly.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho spends time explaining about my health, my body, mammograms, suggests me to meet with a geneticist. When I see her I feel like she has only one patient: me.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bichalo is my absolute favorite. I have been seeing her 10 years and the core staff has been there the whole time as well. that speaks a lot to the environment she creates!

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

known this staff over 10 years and they are great.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bicahlo was welcoming, warm, and engaging. She listened to me, double checked my medical records, and provided sound and concise advice/ recommendations. I look forward to continuing to work with her for all my gynecological needs.

January 21, 2019 6:00 PM

I saw Dr Bicahlo for my last 2 pregnancies and had a great experience.

January 19, 2019 6:00 PM

I loved Silvia Bicalho when I was healthy, and love her even more now. When results of a routine Pap smear didn't look quite right, she pushed for more tests that resulted in her finding cancer in a very early stage. Her determination and compassion were life-saving.

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bicahlo is truly a doctor with expertise and compassion. I trust her 100%.

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bicahlo is amazing and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an OB. She is attentive, patient, compassionate and makes sure you always feel comfortable leaving the office. Can't recommend her enough!

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Always very please with doctor and her staff.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

No problems with the provider but the office itself always seems very busy and there is generally a wait well beyond one's appointment time.

December 3, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Bicahlo is always friendly and informative and willing to talk about my concerns, She seems to remember me even thought I see her seldom - yearly at best!

November 28, 2018 6:00 PM

I love Dr. Bicalho! She is one of a kind.

November 25, 2018 6:00 PM

The doctor took the time to get to know me and answered all of my questions.

November 18, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho and her staff are usually fine. my husband, however, came into contact with receptionists at the front desk who seemed absolutely had no interest in servicing people or didn't understand the concept of it. They made my husband felt completely unwelcome and upset him when he was coming to see me in a hospital room.

November 16, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Silvia Bicalho is an excellent professional. Very attentive, always taking away all my doubts and leaving me calm in relation to my worries. I am very pleased and happy to have found Dr. Bicalho.

November 13, 2018 6:00 PM

I HAVE KNOWN DR. BICHALO FOR 10 YEARS. SHE TAKES HER TIME LISTENING TO YOU ABOUT YOUR HEALTH CONCERNS.

September 30, 2018 7:00 PM

it was a good check up as always. thanks

September 13, 2018 7:00 PM

Top-notch care, as always.

August 24, 2018 7:00 PM

Nicalho is great. she is always in a great mood, reasy to answer all my questions and concerns.

August 19, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho is always professional, warm, interested, patient and calm. She explains things with minimum details.

August 13, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho is excellent. I have referred many people to her. Office staff is always polite & friendly. Thank you Dr. B.

August 12, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho is an amazing physician and I adore her and trust her with my health. I am not thrilled with the office itself (unfriendly staff at the front desk, the nurse assistants who weigh/take bp are not amazing). The actual nurses are great as well but you get less time with them. I have also been told contradicting things by these nurse assistants than what my doctor says which is frustrating. Like I said, I adore Dr. Bicalho, but if she were available at a different practice, I'd go there instead.

August 7, 2018 7:00 PM

Routine checkup. Dr. Bicahlo provided me with some referrals at my request for other doctor services I am in need of. As always, she was attentive and kind.

July 29, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho always take the time to listen. She remembers not only pertinent medical information but also major/ongoing events in her patients lives. This adds the extra personal touch that helps to create the best kind of...

July 20, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho is THE best.

July 20, 2018 7:00 PM

excelent

July 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Everyone was great! Thank you!

July 8, 2018 7:00 PM

I saw Dr. Bicalho for the first time for a prenatal visit. I felt well cared-for and not rushed. I'm thrilled that she will be my provider over the course of my pregnancy.

July 3, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho and her staff are always very nice and helpful.

June 27, 2018 7:00 PM

I've been going to Dr. Bicalho for 20 years. She is an excellent & thoughtful physician!

June 26, 2018 7:00 PM

June 24, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicahlo is amazing! she is compassionate and explains options. she cares about me as a person and my overall well being. she knows who I am and what is important to me

June 20, 2018 7:00 PM

Very knowledgeable MD. I trust her expertise. Appointment seemed fast as I have a lot of questions.

June 11, 2018 7:00 PM

I am very happy with Dr Bicalho.

June 11, 2018 7:00 PM

Great visit, nice nurses and the doctor explains everything. Just forgot to tell me if she would call me back with next steps

June 10, 2018 7:00 PM

I didn't think this doctor had the best listening skills or bedside manner. She did not explain things (strep b test, checking to see if baby was breech) before doing them, which was uncomfortable.

June 2, 2018 7:00 PM

The visit was great.

June 1, 2018 7:00 PM

difficult to schedule an appointment that's not 2 months out.

May 22, 2018 7:00 PM

I find Dr. Bicalho combines competence and caring. Our visits never feel rushed and I always fee she responds to all of my concerns in a thoughtful manner.

May 20, 2018 7:00 PM

I enjoy Dr. Bichalo. She's a great doctor.

May 15, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho was awesome, and really affirmed my desire for the procedure I wished to move forward with. I am very satisfied with her level of care and attention to detail for the procedure and what to expect.

May 7, 2018 7:00 PM

My experience with Dr. Bicahlo was very professional, she was interested in my personal life and any worries I had. She was excellent at her job.

May 5, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bicalho is a very kind , passionate and caring doctor. not only did wet talk about my visit, she also cares about my family. I have recommended her to many friends and we're all very happy with her!
