Waiting time was always too long, no doctor/patient relationship.
in The Villages, FL |
I was a patient of Dr. Higuchi for years. He is a terrific human being and a great doctor. We recently moved to the mainland and ( unfortunately) I will need to find another oncologist. I hope that I will find another doctor as good as Dr. Higuchi.
