“An important role as a physician is helping patients understand their chronic medical issues allowing them to be a more active participant in their care, which ensures that both their physical and emotional needs are better met and helps them lead as healthy and productive lives as possible.”
Dr. Higgins is an excellent caring physician. Spends time with patients and has a deep empathy for problems and issues. Highly recommend.
“I still think its an honor to be someones doctor. Working together for better health is the best.”
“Caring for patients begins with listening and empathy. The partnership that I create with my patients begins with teaching and explaining on a level that helps my patients understand the issues, and medical objectives in a way that enhances their outcome and overall wellness.”
“My patient care philosophy is to treat every patient as I would want to be treated if I were the patient. Everybody is a patient in some shape or form at some point, or several points, in their life. Having been a patient myself, I try to focus on treating my patients as I would hope to treated if I were in their shoes.”
