Great personal as well as medical skills. He explains things in common sense language and is thorough in his reviews.

This dr is a joke. Wouldn't see me bc I went to a cosmetic dr. I'm sorry I'm sick and was told to go see you to find out what was wrong with me. Refused to see me because I was told by a different dr I have something that needs to be seen by a specialist.
in Mcalester, OK |
One of the most pleasant and personable doctors I have ever met. He is extremely knowledgeable and keeps updated on the latest findings available. Highly recommend.

He is a really great Doctor. He's easy to talk to and takes the time to get to know you.

I took my wife to see William Briggs. At first, he seemed genuinely concerned about her condition. He diagnosed her by thumping on her stomach and told her that she was just plugged up. We both told him that we did not think that was the case. He got extremely upset that we did not agree with him. He ordered a few tests. He never called to let us know what the results were. We called his office several times to try and find out the results, to no avail. We finally had to go to another doctor.

I found Dr. Briggs' information online and when I called to schedule an appointment, they got me in right away. I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome which seems to be progressing over the years. Whenever I explained to Dr. Briggs about how my IBS won't allow me to eat anything without needing a bathroom next to me, he knew exactly what to give me. He prescribed me Dicyclomine which fights the abdominal pain and diarrhea to the extreme. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has the same issue

William Briggs misdiagnosed me and then refused to take my call or even respond to me. I was left in severe abdominal pain for two weeks. I called several times and the nurses told me that he would return my call. He never called. I spent a total of 4 weeks waiting to hear from him and to this day he has never called back. I had to go to a real Gastroenterologist to be treated. THIS GUY IS NOT A GOOD DOCTOR AT ALL!
