Dr. Higginbotham is top notch

I first saw Dr. Higginbotham years ago when he filled in for my former PC. In recent years I had been seeing an internal medicine specialist but he moved & I no longer needed to see a specialist. My father has been seeing Dr. Bruce for the last 4-5 years, which in itself is an accomplishment as my Dad had not seen a doctor on a regular basis for YEARS. I decided to switch my records & have been seeing Dr. Bruce for the last couple of years & am very satisfied with the care I receive. He is very easy to talk to & is attentive to all your needs.
