Review of Dr. Higdon

- in Nashville & Memphis, TN |

Dr. Higdon has truly been blessed with a glorious gift from God. He was such a class act, very caring, consistently professional in all aspects & made me feel comfortable through the entire process of reconstructing my breasts. It was very easy to believe in Dr. Higdon's skills & abilities because he does (and NOT in an arrogant way). His confidence helped me get BACK my confidence. My experience culminated with kicking breast cancer's butt & ending up with beautiful breasts. I love Dr. Higdon!

Review of Dr. Higdon

- in Nashville , TN |

Dr. Higdon has a warm, caring, and comforting demeanor about him. I would easily recommend him to anybody contemplating a breast reduction . I noticed a huge improvement immediately after surgery. I am completely happy with the results. His staff is excellent also. Thank you Dr. Higdon!

our son has had three cranial head surgeries with Dr. Kelly, at 6 months, age 4, and age 19. he is an excellent doctor, highly skilled, and very caring. Without hesitation, we recommend him to anybody that needs any type of head surgery. this is a very serious surgery, and we felt at easy that he was providing the best medical care for our son.

Review of Dr. Higdon

- in Clarksville, TN |

Dr. Higdon was very compassionate every single time I have seen. I am very happy with my reconstruction results. He took time to answer questions and to get to know me as a person. Yes I had to wait but I know he spent with me and assume he was doing that with others. So I was okay with waiting. He listened to what I wanted and created it for me.

Review of Dr. Kelly

-Hermitage |

Dr. Kelley has done over 10 surgeries for my daughter with a cleft lip and palette. We switched to him after a previous surgeon was not meeting out needs. Dr. Kelley is straight and to the point (which may put some people off but we preferred it) and was always very clear about procedures, risks, etc. He is very careful around recovery, ensuring a patient gets the best after care possible. Scheduling with him is difficult at times, but worth it.

Review of Dr. Higdon

- in Knoxville, TN |

I had a "botched" breast augmentation in 2016 and was unhappy with my results very early on. Dr. Higdon was able to fix my breasts and exceed my expectations. He truly is an artist. I would recommend him to friends and family.

Review of Dr. Higdon

- in Hermitage, TN |

I have no words to express how appreciative I am whit Dr. Higdon. He literally gave me my life back. I've had implants for 30 yrs! Both busted and Hardened! Dr, Higdon was honest with me explaining , even with his experience I may be scarred. My surgery was this past Fri 9th, 2017. My expectations were low! I simply wanted to be made whole again. I am shockingly impressed!!! I fully anticipated being scarred and endless PAIN. On day TWO my pain scale was a 2!! Cont......
