Dr. Higgins is an amazing human being. He is realistic about the diagnosis, frank about the options, and skilled in the operating room. I'm so glad I chose him to perform my mastectomy; I felt his genuine interest and care for my well-being before and after the surgery. He made me smile despite being terrified. I will always be thankful for his help in coming through this experience with a sense of dignity and grace.
Dr. Higgins made a very nerve racking experience much less frightening. He has an excellent bed side manner and is easy to talk to. I was very happy with my experience. I recommended him to my PCP as a good surgeon to refer patients to. She was impressed with the appearance of my surgical scar, which is minimal.
He patiently answered our questions, respected my wife's desire to try an alternative (diet-based) approach, and performed precision surgery when she was ready to take that step. Dr. Higgins is compassionate, skilled, and wise. You can't find better surgical care in Central Oregon... or anywhere else on the planet. Bend is fortunate to have him.
He performed a breast node dissection and tumor removal surgery in December 2011 and did a great job. I had a mastectomy back in 2005 by another surgeon but the cancer came back as a tumor on my mastectomy scar 6 1/2 years later. Dr Higgins is one of the best surgeons I've ever had and feel lucky he's one of my cancer doctors. He also implanted a port for my chemotherapy and later removed it once the chemo was finished. He's extremely conscientious, skilled and thoughtful,his staff is great too!
