    I was helped at the desk quickly, had less than the five minute wait in the lobby AND in the exam room. Very impressive.

    Dr. Higginbotham is always pleasant and personable yet quite efficient at his job at the same time.

    Experienced on Apr 09, 2019

    He is very thorough. He answers any/all questions we had. He made sure we were happy with the plan of treatment and understood why we were doing what we were doing.

    We have seen Dr. Higginbotham before for another child and we were very impressed. So when my son injured his leg, it felt natural to come back to Dr. Higginbotham again.

    We just moved into the area. Dr. Higginbotham came highly recommended from several past patients.

    Dr. Higginbotham listened to my concerns and was very thorough in feedback for my future care and activities.

    Hardly no wait time to see Higginbotham, he gets right to the point. I like him or I wouldn't be seeing him.

    This was a one year followup on my knee replacements. This doctor is my orthopedic surgeon and I am completely satisfied with him and his practice.

    I appreciated all that was taken care of THAT day! X-ray, splint custom made - All in one visit! No return visits to do those things! Also, [...] was so congenial & took very good care in making sure the splint felt perfectly.

    Everyone was extremely kind and thoughtful. Dr. Higginbotham was great. He was patient and seemed interested in everything I had to say. He was very kind and never made me feel rushed or unimportant. I would definitely recommend him.

    I felt a procedure he did was not necessary.

    overall very good experience

    good experience [...]

    Doctor Higginbotham is an excellent surgeon and great bed side manners and a good person. However his reception desk is another story. Lazy, uninformed, and don't care.

    Thomas Higginbotham is the best doctor I've been to as far as my knees. He did a knee replacement he is wonderful, he's nice, he does the best job possible. So, just, I just really like going to him. â?¦ Oh Intermountain Health care.
