Dr. Higuera took time to listen to and address my questions and concerns. Excellent physician.
in Jenks, OK |
I have a very complicated hip surgery history and traveled from Oklahoma to Cleveland clinic, based on the video Dr. Higuera made. I felt that he addressed the whole person, not just my hip. He attempted the most conservative procedures, but what was most appropriate for my specific situation. He is highly talented and very knowledgeable in orthopedic conditions. I would highly recommend him as a qualified surgeon.

This is an unsolicited review and evaluation of Dr Carlos Hjguera regarding my recent hip replacement on March 10, 2017. In summary, my exposure and satisfaction has been excellent and beyond my expectation. I like him! His genuine involvement in my physical and mental concerns put me completely at ease and convinced me he is the exact physician I can trust. I embraced the commitment and process of rapid home recovery and Dr Higuera revealed, instructed, and tracked my progress to success.

Dr. Carlos is one of the best if not the best doctor who has operated on this patient 4 times, replacing two knees and two hips. The professional attention, expertise, and extensive knowledge by which he practices his craft is second to none. I have already recommended him to a parishioner of mine that needs two knees and two hips. I would recommend Dr. Carlos to anyone at anytime. His staff both supports his surgical knowledge and they communicate with patients in a very professional manner

Excellent care
in Olmsted Falls, OH |
Dr. Higuera is an exception to many doctors today that overlook the patient communications and education aspect. He took considerable time with me during my initial appointment for a knee replacement and spent time to answer all the questions I had and walk through the process in detail. Dr. Higuera provided flexibility for scheduling the surgery that worked well with my schedule. His use of technology, for those that are so inclined, enhances the patient experience for us techies. Top Notch!!
