Specialties

Dr. Cynthia L Higgins has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Uniformly unprofessional in every way.

The single worst doctor I have encountered in 59 years, in the single most fraud-inclined, unprofessional office. Dr. Higgins lied to me repeatedly about increasing the only medication that works to interrupt my severe depression, her office manipulated me to charge me three times what I was told I would be charged, and she discharged me from care for challenging these things. You place your life at risk if you place yourself in her care.

Misses the mark

Very difficult to reach, late to reply, superfluous with no real substance, non-commital, and, above all, misses the mark. Wish I had known before wasting precious time and money.
