Patient Comments (2)
Anchorage, AK |
Dr Briggs was very disrespectful to me and attacked my personal decisions at the end of our appointment. A discussion quickly turned into a lecture in which he refused to listen to what I had to say and immediately launched into talking at me and over me.
in Philadelphia, PA |
We moved out of state four years ago and miss Dr. Briggs so much. He does a wonderful job of explaining his recommendations, is consistently up to date on the latest medical literature, and keeps very organized records. His sound logic and ability to keep and work off of detailed patient records (including tracking the types of antibiotics given) meant that I could always trust his opinion.
