Good, quick, no nonsense approach. He was much more careful than I needed him to be, asking if I was all right to proceed regularly. I would imagine even if you were a bit sensitive about the removal of skin cancers that he would be fine. I'll be back.

When I arrived at the doctors office the staff was very prompt and courteous. I was called back after a short wait and the doctor came in after a very short wait. I was very impressed with the doctors attitude and attention to my problem. Dr. Higgins resolved my problem during this first visit without requiring me to make a second appointment. I could not have been more pleased with the entire experience.

Dr Higgins is a wealth of knowledge. He's an older gentleman with a lot of experience on skin conditions. He is adorable with a satirical sense of humor.

Someone wrote about long wait times & I completely agree. I have showed up 15 min early & called back to the office 30 min after my appointment time & still had to wait another 30-40 minutes before the doctor came in. Their back office & management is unprofessional and in chaos. They claim to set appointments which they never have and try to charge you for missing the appointment. They don’t send correct paperwork and it takes several calls to get them to do it correctly.

Dr. Higgins came into the exam room and made me feel at ease right away. He was very courteous and professional. He diagnosed my problem and was able to perform the needed procedure during the same visit. I would feel comfortable recommending him to anyone in need of a good dermatologist.

Dr Higgins is fine. He's knowledgeable and explains things well. A bit brisk, so be prepared with your questions. The office staff, however, is a total disaster. Screwed up voice mail system, if you leave a question maybe you'll get an answer, 30 minute waits even for 8:30 a.m. appointment. Terrible miscommunication among staff. Ask one person for clarification and someone else calls back clueless. They send your prescription off to the wrong pharmacy and no one knows how it happened.

Dr. Higgins was very knowledgeable about my concern. He spoke with such kindness and was very attentive. It took no time at all to explain the solution and solving while the problem. Unlike some doctors, Dr. Higgins didn't rush my visit and thoroughly answered my questions.
