Stay away from this guy!!!! He did irreparable damage to my shoulder and bicep. I started out with a minor rotator cuff repair and ended up with a botched surgery and a torn bicep tendon that had to be reattached to my arm with a titanium bolt! I was in severe pain and unable to sleep for 6 months following the surgery and MUA he performed. I had to seek another surgeon to undo the damage Higgins caused. It's been 18 months since the original surgery and I've been told that I'll never regain the range of motion I had prior to the surgery and MUA performed by Higgins. He is very slick in the first appointment, selling you on surgery. After surgery it became very difficult to get an appointment with him. The staff tries to push you off on the Physicians Assistant. I really had to fight just to get him to look at me after surgery. Don't be fooled by all the pictures around his office documenting his involvement with Olympic athletes. This surgeon is all about the money and his approach is outdated. The MUA he performed is very archaic and the reason for my subsequent bicep tendon tear.

Do yourself a favor and find another surgeon. This guy is protected in Montgomery county. I've been told that he would probably be out of business if he worked in any other jurisdiction.

Very rude office staff. Go out of their way not to schedule f/u appt with physician - instead want to direct you appt. with Physician Assistant.

Questionable quality and organization of Physical Therapy staff. Transferred to another PT facility and got much better planned and directed care.

Initial visit very positive and helpful. Poor care post-op. Dr. Higgins makes negative and untrue statements about his competition. He will not apologize when he has mispoken. Very misleading about recovery times.
