    I want to see higgins about bursitis and he sent me for x-rays, I asked nurse and dr. if x-rays showed soft tissue and neither answered. He said no arthritis in my hip but I needed physical therapy and they would threat me with nsaids. I held up my cart and said I have a reaction to nsaids. He said we will treat you with prednisone and I said I am already being treated with prednison. At no time did my chart leave my hands. I am allergic to several medicines. Less than 5 min. with nurse and dr.

    He was wonderful. I spent a lot of time in his office, and he was very kind and helpful throughout the process. I had two surgeries, and was fully confident that he would do everything possibly to make this a speedy and successful experience. I was told by others that he was very good, and he was. I would recommend him highly.
