I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Laurence Higgins! I just had my shoulder replacement. Dr. Higgins, and staff have been very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Before I had my shoulder replacement surgery, anytime I mentioned his name to anyone there and in the waiting room from patients who've already had the surgery and were back to get their other shoulder replaced all had great success and specifically said, They would go to no other surgeon, Dr. Larry Higgins is the best of the best! : )
