What surprised me was, Dr. Higgins had a concern about my health, and personally emailed me back with the lab work I had done, and even made understanding comments. With this kind of personal touch, I have the highest regards of Dr. Higgins.

I am not the type to leave negative reviews, but my experience was terrible. Higgins paid no attention to my explanations, was rude on his responses, and slapped me on a random antidepressant without referring me to a psychiatrist. Experiences like this, and the tragic shortage of mental health professionals in this town, are why depressed college students don't seek help.

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.
