Dr Briggs and husband staff are excellent. He helped me with bladder issues following my hysterectomy years ago. I had a large kidney stone last fall that he performed lithotripsy on. I would highly recommend him. I will definitely use him in the future if nlithotripsy on. I would highly recommend him. I will definitely use him in the future if needed.

Dr Briggs was part of my team that treated me for prostate cancer. Dr Briggs is thorough, gentle and shows he's had many years of experience. He conveys caring and understanding and listens to me as a patient. I highly recommend him.
