When I scheduled my appointment I selected "well" visit because I needed to get my medications refilled. I explained other concerns in my e-check in and hoped to talk to the doctor about them. When he came in I explained that I needed certain medications and questioned one medication another provider said I no longer needed to take. He blew me off saying maybe it was no longer effective. Then I mentioned my pain medication and he really balked at that saying the pain management clinic should be taking care of that. Then chastised me for getting pain medicine from my back surgeon who operated on me just 2 months prior. He cut me off when I tried to tell him something regarding my care and then prescribed the wrong medication when I brought a typed list by of prior medications that needed to be filled. Thely only thing he did was send in medications to the pharmacy. The nurse took my blood pressure. The doctor didn't listen to my chest, heart or anything.

I'm always pleased with my time spent at any dr at Scott and White. Dr Higgins seemed genuinely concerned about my sickness and hopefully I am on my way to getting better. I will get back if I need to and feel very confident that I will get back in if I am not better in a few days.
