Short wait time. He's quick and efficient. His office staff is incredibly friendly!
Cole Camp, Missouri |
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.

If you like extremely long wait times and extremely short doctor patient contact this is the dermatologist for you.
