October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

This individual is always very late and never reads my son's chart before entering the room. I asked for a referral for an OT back in April and was denied, now she acts like I dropped the ball on something.

October 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Higgins is a wonderful doctor with companionate bedside manner.

October 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Higgins is the best!

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Really like this dr but she needs to listen better. She just thinks she knows shat you are going to ask and has the answer in her head when she needs to just let you finish the question and then take her time to respond. she's very business like, could be a little more personal

March 15, 2019 7:00 PM

office visit went well

March 1, 2019 6:00 PM

February 24, 2019 6:00 PM

They are very sweet and kind at the office -

January 14, 2019 6:00 PM

Had to make an appointment on a Saturday so went to a different location/office than usual. Apart from some difficulties finding the right building and entrance overall experience with the provider herself was good. My child had pink eyes so it was a simple conversation and prescription.

September 12, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Higgins always takes ample time to listen and talk to us and is great with both of our kids and us as parents.

August 4, 2018 7:00 PM

We love Dr. Higgins and her office.

July 5, 2018 7:00 PM

My doctor is great & spends a good amount of time with us, but we feel rushed during sick visits with other doctors in the practice, though they were very nice.

June 22, 2018 7:00 PM

I love Dr. Higgins. she's an excellent pediatrician.m, and she's very kind and loving towards both my children. She gives great information about how to get toddlers to eat more. She's very proactive in preventative care. I would recommend her to anyone.

June 20, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Higgins and her staff are wonderful! My baby has complex medical needs, and they've been extremely accommodating, supportive, and kind.

April 25, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Higgins is a kind, informative, compassionate and a calm-down-to-earth doctor. She makes sure that my son is at ease, while caring for his health needs in a very thorough manner.

March 22, 2018 7:00 PM

Mary Higgins has been our children's pediatrician for many years. We have recommended her many times and think she is fantastic. The nurses in this office are excellent, too.

March 4, 2018 6:00 PM

she was very nice to my daughter. she makes her feel at ease.

March 2, 2018 6:00 PM

The doctor is professional, warm and friendly. We love the doctor. However, the nurse and receptionists are somewhat distant and unwelcoming. The nurse was not watm at all. She came in and did the routine without smile on her face the whole time. She did not inform us about the temperature of the child without asking. She was not compassionate.

February 6, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Higgins is the best doctor we could wish for! Number one! So sweet! We love her! Could not find any better doctor!

January 8, 2018 6:00 PM

I love this practice, but they are always running late. 20 minutes late is a very good day. I've waited as much as an hour for a regularly scheduled appointment. thanks

December 31, 2017 6:00 PM

Dr Higgins is an excellent listener and is a calming person in a stressful situation
