I will NEVER refer ANYONE to Dr. William Briggs!!! I could have died--literally--due to Dr. Briggs's lack of concern for my distress after waking up from a simple scope procedure!!! Luckily, I stopped at an emergency room due to severe pain and being unable to breathe, which I told Dr. Briggs about before he ushered my husband and I out the door. End result was emergency thoracotomy. Felt like next patient was far more important that my obvious distress.

Went to Doctor Briggs 3 times plus colonoscopy. He seems like a nice enough guy, but didn't help me in the least. No followups, did not spend much time in visits, and nothing he suggested helped condition. Severl visits, two colonoscopies and an MRI later and he just cost me lots of $$$ with no real diagnosis or treatment for my severe pain and discomfort. Very disappointing. I will be trying another Doctor.

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.

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
