Excellent ENT and surgeon

Dr. Biggerstaff has performed sinus surgery on me 3 times in several years for a reoccurring polyps. HIs explanation of ability to pinpoint the issues are impressive. HIs staff is lacking in that they consistently schedule too many appointments cause me to wait for up to an hour to see the doc. I say consistently because it happened 3 time in a short span.

Highly recommend

The office is busy, I waited awhile for an appointment and in the waiting area, but this is because this doctor is good. He is hard to get an appointment with because many people want him for their surgery. I do not regret the wait. Highly skilled, knowledgeable surgeon who really cares about his patient. The day of surgery he took the time to talk with me and my family and made me feel at ease. From what I understand he does the tough cases others won't touch. Glad he was my surgeon.
