Largo, FL |
excellent Dr would never see any one else
Nashville, TN |
Dr. Higgins came to the hospital to do an emergency consult on my 93 year old Mother on a Saturday morning at 6am. He spoke with both of us, explained his concerns and options, and his suggested treatment. He came in on Sunday to do surgery, spent time with our family afterwards, texted me, as I could not be there, and she was able to go home the next day. Because it was the 4th of July weekend, he then came to our home to check and change her dressing! Amazing care and concern!

Dr. Higgins is an awesome Ortheopaedic Surgeon. He has caring for my family for years and he really cares too. He is truly professional and knowledgeable. I am always confident that he will help me each time my family or I need him.

Unprofessional. Extremely abrupt and does not listen to his patients. Very unhappy with this Doctor. Staff was very polite. But Docror was like a bullet in and out of the room.
in Springhill, fl |
Short with patients. Quite rude. Does not explain anything. Came in room. Was short. And left. Glad I waited all this time for a appointment. NOT. Dont waste your time with this Dr.
