About Dr. Flicker

Philosophy of care

No doubt I believe that I strive to treat my patients as if they were my own family or friends. While I may see babies born every day - and in fact have seen hundreds in my career - for my patients, it may be their first so it's scary and exciting and emotional. When most people are asked what was the most important moment in their lives, a common answer is the day their children were born. I keep this in mind as I care for my patients.

Why I entered medicine

My father is a scientist and my mother a nurse, so I suppose I combined the two in my pursuit of a medical degree. For as long as I can remember, I wanted to have a career in medicine. First it was veterinary, then pediatrics, and in medical school, I found the joy of obstetrics and gynecology. The science of medicine continues to amaze me, and the human element is what makes me truly love what I do. Women of diverse backgrounds with incredible stories and journeys make this field so rewarding.

Community involvement

I was born and raised in Topton, Pa., and my husband and I are active in a local community outreach organization based there. The group organizes community events as well as raising money for local groups and community members in need. I also have school-age children, and so I try to volunteer to help in their school when I can. I can also be found with my kids in tow in 5K events in the area!

Personal interests

Since I was raised in this area, I have most of my extended family nearby so I spend quite a bit of time with them. My husband, kids and I enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking, biking and playing sports in the backyard. I LOVE the beach and swimming. I also enjoy reading, and especially reading on the beach! For exercise, I try to run when I can and really enjoy Zumba, which is so fun that it doesn't feel like exercise at all.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
