Patient Comments (1)
in Bethesda, MD |
Our family have used Dr. Higgins for 2 shoulder surgeries (2 different people) and 3 knee surgeries (2 different people, 3 different knees). We've recommended him to other friends & were originally recommended by someone whose daughter was a star college goalie and our two sons played soccer and hockey & still play them!. He is GREAT and will spend as much time as you need to discuss and answer questions. His time & rapport with patients is at a level very few doctors even try to achieve.
