in Crossville, TN |
I underwent surgery at Vanderbilt on March 7, and Dr. Higgins was the attending anesthesiologist. He visited with me just prior to and following surgery to address my questions and concerns. He was both friendly and forthwith, reassuring me in the process. The surgery under Dr. Chandra was successful. I experienced no trauma. Thanks to Dr. Higgins, I was kept stable and totally unaware of this most invasive surgery. I couldn't speak more highly of his competence. The team is truly amazing!

I have been seeing Dr. Higgins since October 2011, when I was referred to him regarding pain in my right hip. He performed hip replacement in January 2012 and again in February 2017. I have had both hips replaced and my experience with Dr. Higgins and his staff have exceeded expectations. Dr. Higgins and his PA (Amanda Watkins) have provided information regarding what to expect with my hip surgeries. I would and have recommended Dr. Higgins to anyone that needs his expertise.

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.
