Dr. Biggers was the best doctor I've had. She made my first pregnancy and delivery go so smoothly. She listened, cared, and was generally awesome. I wish I could have her as a general doctor too. I was so glad I had her for delivery at Samaritin hospital/burdett care. She respected my wishes and prevented C-section; I'm not sure if other doctors there would have. Unfortunately, some of her office staff were unfriendly at times but she made up for it.
