Dr Higgins has been my Dr for several years now. I am very happy with the care she has provided to me over the years. She takes the time with you to listen to your issues and addresses them one by one. You never feel rushed when she is with you. She is a wonderful diagnostician and shows genuine concern for her patients. Her office staff is very polite & courteous as is the medical personnel. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Dr. Higgins has treated me for asthma and sleep apnea. She prescribed astham medication changes that allowed for complete control of asthma symptoms. Although neither of us imagined I would test postive for sleep apena, she proceeded with the testing due to symptons. To both of our surprise, I had sleep apnea. She is informative, listens to the patient and provides professional care.
