As all the other reviews also said, she is incredibly late, tries to market her "vitamins" towards you. Also sells nail polish and beauty products within the office? Incredible unprofessional! It's a doctor's office - not walmart, Not only will she arrive late to your appointment but does not review your chart until she's actually with you , going over details she should already know the answer to. Will then try and get you to spend more money on her ridiculous "products" She's awful and half of these reviews must be fake. Find someone else!!

I like Dr. Higgie. She is very thorough. I learned things about my health I had not learned from anywhere else. I really appreciated that. She does have some products she sells but you are not forced to buy them, just like anything else. So, if you don't want it; you have a choice of saying, no so I don't see that as a negative. That is with anything in life. I did not have to wait very long for my appointment, about 20 minutes tops. Anyway, the key with a doctor is thoroughness for me. Too many mistakes are made by doctors who are not thorough in how they give care. Dr. Higgie is to the point. She does not shuck and jive when it comes to your health. If you are not ready for a honest doctor and you just want you hand held, go somewhere else. At the same time, she shows genuine concern for your LIFE, in general not just the issue you may have come in for. She is very caring and sincerely just want you to take your health seriously. You really want a doctor like that. When choosing a OBGYN, think about what is really important to YOU and try your best not to let petty, small things reign over your decision. Is she thorough? knowledgeable? honest? sincere? and compassionate about your health and her work? YES!

Dr. Higginbotham is an excellent physician, so much so that when I lost my insurance due to a layoff, I still scraped together the money to see her when I needed too. I refuse to let anyone else treat me. She provided my prenatal care for my first child and I consistently get well-woman checkups at her office. She is extremely knowledgeable, down-to-earth, nice, understanding and most of all professional. I highly recommend her.

Dr Higginbotham is a wonderful doctor she gave birth to all three of my kids. She is very caring and concern doctor who made me feel comfortable at every appointment and delivery. I would definitely recommend this doctor despite the wait.

i thinks she is good . she delivered both of my lovely boys. And because of her i quit smoking. The last time i was there she sold me a bunch of products because she lead me to believe that (my life depended on it ) so i bought them. They were really expensive and i really couldn't afford them but i was so afraid that i needed to buy them. I go to another doctor now and the doctor i go to (wont say any names ) said that she know her and that she trys to sell her products to.

Dr Chandra has no consideration for one's time. When you make an appoint, you don't expect to wait greater than one hour. I can excuse this happening one time, but when you set the earliest appoint and she doesn't bother to show up until an hour later on a follow up appoint, there is no excuse.

She is an awesome Doctor. Her staff and Her where there for me after the death of my daughter. Her bedside manors do not compare to any I have ever seen. She goes above and beyond what I would expect a Doctor to do. She diagnosed problems in my sister that other Doctors could not find.She is very down to earth and really cares about her patience overall well being.

Dr. Higginbotham is a nice lady, but the last time I was there I wasn't seen until 1 hour and 40 minutes AFTER my appointment time. They are also really pushy in trying to sell you their vitamins, and charge $25 to get your test results. I'll never be going back.

Dr. Higginbotham delivered two of my daughters and I thank her for that. She was concerned for me and the care of my babies as a mother would be. She was strict when she needed to be. She is the most caring and loving doctor that could ever be. I was scared about my surgery, but Dr. Higgie talked to me and joked with me all while performing surgery. I felt so at ease. I didn't feel like I was having surgery.She always smiles and talks to you as a person and not a patient. I tell everybody I bet your Dr.'s not like mine.

I am an educator that two years ago, was a recent Austin transplant. I heard about Dr. Higgie from a fellow teacher that was pregnant with an premature baby.Dr. Higgie called, contacted cajoled and loved this teacher and helped her before, during and after the child's birth. Without the assistance of Dr. Higgie; my friend and her baby would be dead. When I visited Dr. Higgie; I too, experienced her love, intelligence and geniune concern for her patients.

Dr. Higginbotham is by far one of the best doctors I have ever had. She delivered all three of my babes. I feel really comfortable with her and trust her with my body. She is straight forward, loving, caring and a good advisor.

She was delievered my baby via c-section. I had many complications and feel that I was very luck to have Dr. Chandra there as my doctor.

She is a very good and thorough doctor. If she has deliveries or procedures, office wait times can be a bit long. She always takes her time and answers any questions that I have.
