He has been my doctor for years. He is a great listener and a good friend. I can tell him anything and I respect him for that.

Dr. Higgins is an exceptional doctor who makes time to actually LISTEN to his patients. He is genuine and really cares about the people that see him and treats everyone with kindness and respect. This is a rarity these days among doctors. He is by far, the best doctor I've ever seen. His bedside manner is excellent and I highly recommend him. His staff is just as wonderful.
