Santa Fe, NM |
Dr. Higginbotham is easily the rudest doctor I've ever worked with. Working in the medical field, you would think she would be more professional about speaking with her patients and other medical offices but instead I got SCREAMED at for something that has nothing to do with me. If you're thinking of scheduling with her, rethink that thought, you can do better.

My family doctor. We have been coming here for years great doctor and office
Santa Fe, NM |
She is extremely compassionate and up-to-date on the latest conditions and treatments. My husband and I have been going to her since she opened and we are both in the medical field. The only negative is the long waits sometimes, but she spends time with her patients.

My experience with Dr Higginbotham has been that she is thorough and she is on top of new research, treatments and diagnoses. Lately she's been a bit short and I've not been able to get my questions answered fully. Her staff is another matter. The receptionist is loud and is not careful with people's privacy. The assistant who takes you in and writes up notes before the doctor comes in, doesn't listen well or understand. She has written things that were inaccurate and just plain wrong.

A true ability to rate your MD is when the patient is in a crisis, rather than with routine scheduled appointments. The staff is rude & officious; they will hang up on you if they cannot deal with a frustrated patient - after not receiving any phone calls back regarding my recently expired medication, I was frantic and frustrated. Linda Montano is unprofessional and even was proud to admit that she had told her office staff to hang up on me. I will never return to this office.
Santa Fe, NM |
Extremely rude and inappropriate when following up on scripts she mentioned during a visit. Said I should have done this during the visit a couple days before. I had asked for the scripts and she assured me they had been electronically sent. Also mentioned another product to help with a specific condition and I was not aware whether this was a script or on OTC item. Said in front of other clients and also said she did not have time to deal with even though I had called the afternoon of the visit
