Dr. Bivins is phenomenal with myself and all three of my children! No matter how difficult or rare the diagnosis is he's been able to get to the bottom of it and doesn't give up until he figures it out! I would definitely recommend him to anyone!!!

I am giving this office zero stars. Wow.. the secretary is SO very rude, as is his nurse who hung up on me while trying to obtain information about my grandmother's diagnosis. If you want actual information and care for you or a family member.. choose another office. I wil make sure my grandmother gets better care from bow on with someone else.

Bivins is not a very good at helping his patients get the care that they need to lazy to do the paper work or sending his patients to other Dr. That can help his patients.
