Dr Higgins was the Best vascular surgeon I have ever used. I have kidney failure and he has taken all the time I have needed to explain what is happening, what I needed and how it would affect me. I don't even show a scar from my first surgery! Everywhere I go I hear what a great surgeon he is...more
