Dr. Higginbotham used to be a good doctor. Since moving to Advanced Pain, he does not seem to care about his patients. If you are not scheduling a procedure, then he will pass you off to a P. A. It is only about money to him, you are treated like cattle ran through the office. I would never recommend since he has moved to this group.

Dr.Higginbotham deserves all the praise seen in the other reviews. His down to Earth approach, along with his excellent surgical skills lead to my huge improvement in pain from my spinal stenosis with non invasive surgery. This intelligent, highly skilled man really cares.

The only reason I saw Dr. Higginbotham as long as I did was because I thought switching pain doctors would not look good on my record. I could give a dozen stories about how insensitive, patronizing, and rude he could be. Worse than anything else was that he worked very hard to excuse his inability to help me with telling me over and over how I could never get better. I was told to get used to my condition. I finally saw someone else. I'm not great, but I'm better.

I have been treated by dr. Higginbotham for two different spinal conditions. I was told that I needed surgery both times and both times he was able to reduce my pain to a very tolerable level without invasive surgery and without long-term pain medication. He is the reason I am still able to perform my job as a large animal veterinarian

Dr. H is THE BEST! He takes a personal interest in his patients & is easy to talk to. He offers suggestions, but never pushes. If I need extra time to discuss something, he gives it & never makes me feel rushed. Best of all, he is quick to remind me that pain cycles & things will improve. During procedures he is great at putting me at ease. If I call his office, I get to talk to a person, not a machine, and his staff is helpful & follow thru to make sure I am taken care of. HIGHLY recommend!

He has a great bedside/office manner. He is a little young, but knows his stuff. But if you don't like doctors that laugh and joke around with the patient he is not for you. He takes a genuine interest in his patients.

Dr. Higginbotham has been treating my chronic pain for 7 years. He is not a pill-pusher, is very focused on finding solutions that don't use narcotics, and when he does use narcotic pain meds, uses them sparingly. I highly recommend Dr. Higgy.
