Dr. Higginson and the entire staff are caring and efficient. Recently I had a Basal Cell cancer removed by Dr. Higginson with her attending Nurse Tracee. They made me completely relaxed and at ease - the surgery was over before I realized. My sincere thanks to both.

Dr. Higginson has provided me with exceptional skin care over the past 20 years, giving me thorough examinations in light of my experience with melanoma many years ago. With my Irish ancestry, I have literally hundreds of spots on my skin, but Dr. Higginson always knows which ones to treat and which are harmless. She's the best.
