My first visit and he was wonderful. My physician was out of town but Dr. Higgins treated me like I was a long time patient of his. He ended up having to do a procedure on me which was very painful. He and the procedure nurses that assisted him were so kind and patient with me. I would definitely see him again.

This doctor did not face me while speaking to me. There was no eye contact. He was mean and had me repeat thing I was trying to tell him multiple time. He repeatedly interrupted me while I was speaking. He didn't seem to care about anything I said. He just wanted to make notes in the computer and afterwards he wanted me to leave. I later say another Doctor that had no problem getting me the help I needed. BSW will no longer handle my families health care needs.

Dr. Higgins was not a cordial person at all. I was very sick and dizzy and my husband tried to explain what was wrong but the Mr. Higgins shut him down (more than once). While I was explaining my symptoms ( english secondary language) he was not very friendly in understanding what I was trying to say. He left the room and he did not shake my or my husband hands. Not very professional at all.

i have been seeing de. higgins several times over the last three years and he has always been great, but he seemed really frustrated with my decision to have a free mammogram and that it required follow up by him. he questioned why i would do imaging at my age and i am sorry, but breast help is very important and i followed the guidelines. they obviously found something that reqired follow up. i just didnt appreciate his frustration with the situation and will not be returning to his practice due to this and the fact he doesnt me after this long

This was my first visit. haven't seen a doctor in over a decade because of past bad experiences. Chose this doctor and practice because it was close by. Bit the bullet and saw a doctor because I've had headaches daily for several weeks(now been for a month). Dr Higgins thinks it's because of high blood pressure so he gave me several pills on site to lower it which it barely did. Been taking blood pressure pills every morning for past week and I still have daily headaches and my blood pressure is still high. The last thing he did is sent me to the lab to get urine and blood sample. No new appointment was scheduled and I haven't heard anything. I wouldn't call this a good first visit. I went there for help and I'm in the same poor health. I don't know if I'm going back. Feel like I'll get better help if I go to a er or urgent care. Again no follow up? How are you doing? Here's one. Daily headaches but you don't schedule a scan of my head?
