Patient Comments (14)

Dr. Hightower is a great doctor and is very communicative. He has time to answer my questions and never makes me feel rushed when he is in the room. His support staff, Jennifer and Niesha are very professional and kind. It's always a good experience going there.

I believe Southcoast physians are pressured to spend as little time with patients as possible. Dr Hightower’s decisions suffer because of this.

When I relocated from Atlanta, I was apprehensive about my next doctor, however, concerns were put at rest when I met Dr Hightower. He actively listens to my concerns, is very compassionate, warm and genuinely cares for the wellbeing of his patients. Dr Hightower is simply the best.
