      in Bethesda, Maryland |
      Dr Higgins has done two surgeries on my hand. Most recent was December 8, 2015. He is a great doctor. He is gentle, willing to listen, explains things, is usually on time for appointments and extremely caring of your feelings. I would highly recommend Dr Higgins to anyone. I trust him very much.
