My husband and I have been going to Dr. Bickle for a number of years. He is just so great. He makes sure his staff always schedules us immediately when we call with an issue. He is thorough, and gets us immediately to specialists if we need them. This was especially important when my husband’s prostate cancer reoccurred. Dr. Bickle got us into the specialist right away so my husband could… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you will be treated in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, where you can benefit from my focus on prevention and wellness. My staff will also welcome you and treat you with a friendly compassion that does not exist in the larger "mill practices" seen today. We truly get to know our patients on a personal level and treat each and every patient as a member of our extended family.
My family medicine practice is located in Carefree and serves patients from North Scottsdale, Cave Creek and Windsong. I am affiliated with HonorHealth (formerly Scottsdale Healthcare) hospitals and also work with specialists at Mayo Clinic Scottsdale.
I encourage you to schedule a "meet and greet" with us if you are interested in our style of personalized healthcare, similar to concierge medicine, within a very small, and unique, practice population.

It turned out that I had congestive heart failure and I am… See more
My father was a patient of Dr. Bickle's and he lived in relative health until he was 99. That's incredible. My Mother, also a patient of his will be turning 96 this weekend.

I could not be happier than I am to have Dr. Bickle as my doctor. He is caring and compassionate with any concern that I have. He returns emails and calls promptly and always has good advice whether it is about a condition I may have or referring me to a specialist.
