Dr. Higdon is an awesome surgeon & has the best bedside manner. He is genuinely concerned & very patient; he definitely is a "natural" and very passionate about what he does.

I only have positive things to say about Dr. Higdon....including, he is a phenomenal surgeon...perfectionist.

Patient | June 2, 2017

Very approachable; not typical "holier than thou" attitude of other docs. He was real down to earth.
Patient | April 20, 2017

this was a mismatch between my needs & scheduling compounded by a doc who spoke too fast and did not offer me the time to process what he was saying. I had my plastic surgery done at REX in NC in 2005 & now I live in TN. A new patient who has no upcoming procedures will not find an easy path in this practice.
