How likely are you to recommend Dr. Higgins?

(Select your rating)
Dr Higgins was the University of Utah Hospital’s surgeon for my wife’s ‘hip fracture’ that occurred while skiing. In a time of shock and distress for my wife and me as we dealt with her injury, Dr Higgins’ professionalism and bedside manner were exceptional. His clear explanations and calm presentation before and after surgery set the tone for our stay. He answered our questions clearly and concisely, and showed compassion for my wife’s injury, and optimism for her recovery.
