What People Say About Dr. Ilona Higgins, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Excellent, highly respectful care honoring the whole body, mind, and spirit from Dr. Higgins and her staff. Patient-centered, patient-led, solution oriented medicine. She is a highly intelligent, joyful, positive, curious, empathetic, compassionate and healthy woman with integrity and years of experience, who obviously cares deeply and focuses on unwinding the spiral to find and resolve the root of an imbalance. I felt remarkably respected and able to express and be myself. She explains issues well and efficiently, and listens well, as she gently observes and ascertains a holistic understanding of the patient. She is a pleasant and interesting wise person, which helps to create ease, as one is most likely anxious and uncomfortable about the puzzle of one's health condition. Honestly, one of the best professional interactions I've ever had, health care or otherwise.

I would highly recommend Dr. Higgins. She spends enough time with you as needed to explain and answer questions, is very thorough in her exams and is genuinely concerned about your health. Nice to have options in Waimea.
