Dr. Higgins is excellent. He saved my life. I had a heart attack & went to O.S. U Medical Center. The Doctor could not catherize my heart after numerous attempts. The cardio staff explained slowly administering heart meds. I have been on. I had a quad bypass 10 years who. I went into cardiac arrest 4 times with the 1st heart attack. By the grace of the Lord above & new technology I survived"per my cardio Dr. & surgeon in Texas". The primary care was dreadful. Dr. Cook was dreadful!

I have seen both Dr. James and Chris Higgins. They are great and there office works great with you. They did a stint on my heart and I feel much better. Also there office is close to Drysdale's and they have easy parking.

Dr. Higgins is Great and so is all the staff I have dealt with, except his PA. I have very high blood pressure, when she came in she seemed nice enough, but thought my procedure was coming up (I already had it) she never looked at my chart and my BP, which was 220 something over 120; then when explaining a medication, she was condescending and wouldn't stop being so even after I repeatedly told her I understood. She spoke to me like you would a two year old. I'll go back, but Never to see the PA
