Dr. Briggs is pleasant to deal with, knowledgable and caring. He answers questions in laymans terms. It is obvious that he is not in medicine just for a pay check.

The office was super confused about my zocdoc appointment. I'm glad I called and got t figured out, not sure what would have happened had I just showed up. The office is nice and packed! Never thought an ENT could be popular but they are. I was seen quickly and the doctor was great he gave me some good kind of quick fixes for my ears and let me know what would happen if these don't work. Would 100% visit again - but hoping I don't have to.

Dr. Briggs was very professional and personable. His knowledge about Central Texas' allergy problems was apparent. He quickly gave me 2-3 treatment solutions and gave me a short examination. I will recommend Dr. Briggs to anyone who has allergy/ENT problems.

Doc, Your awesome! You explained everything as far as the diagnosis and procedure taking place. You assured us that it would be painless and quick to revise my daughter's tongue tie. I'd highly recommend you to anyone seeking the same service. I cannot thank you and your staff enough.

One of the fastest appointments I've ever had. I went in for a really bad sore throat. It hurt to even talk! I signed in and waited no more than 5 minutes and was promptly seen, diagnosed and out the door! Problem was solved by next day after taking prescription. AWESOME!

When I checked in, the receptionist couldn't find my appointment as it had been confirmed on zocdoc. Then she found one at another office with another doctor. She fit me in for the doctor I had originally been confirmed with at the office I was at and I was in and out in less than 30 minutes.

This is the best visit to a doctor that I have EVER had, and a specialist at that! First time visit, I had the paper work ready and the efficient offiice ladies had me checked in before I could have a seat. No sooner had I prepared to hang out, Seth, the amazing medical tech, called me back. 5 minutes later, H&P was complete and the awesome Dr Briggs came in. In less than 10 min. he diagnosed the problem and gave me treatment options. This clinic seems like a well oiled machine with a most definite personal, friendly feel. No unnecessary test were offered. A highly skilled clinician is what you will get instead!
