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....more
