Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Higgins "I hold two guiding principles in my surgical practice. First, I am treating a human being. Second, I take into account the whole person I am treating. Treating you is a privilege I do not take lightly. You are entrusting me to care for you and I will do so with the highest degree of respect and dignity. I look at each person as more than just a case, a disease, a problem or just a billing opportunity. I treat people as I would want to be treated if I were the patient."
