Very efficient! The longest part was taking the time to fill out the forms. This could be easily improved if they upload their forms on to ZocDoc for you to complete ahead of time.

Prescriptions were sent to pharmacy without notifying them that the antibiotic one should not be filled right away. Other then that, all went well with a full office.

I have struggled with a stuffy nose/headaches, sinusitis, etc since I was a child. I have had to use nasal spray since the third grade and it stopped working years ago. I have seen ENTs and allergists. I have had scans to check for deviated septum. I was told nothing could be done for me. Dr. Briggs is the first doctor I’ve seen that could actually help me. Highly recommended to those out there that have struggled to find a solution to their problem. I can finally breathe again! Thank you Dr. Briggs!

It was my first visit to the office and everything went very smoothly. The staff and nurses were quick and efficient. I waited around 15 minutes, but I also had to do new patient paperwork so it was no trouble. Once I was in the patient room everything happened very quickly. The whole appointment took 37 minutes, and Dr. Griggs was great. He went above and beyond, and I will definitely be back if I need a follow up.

I had good experience with Dr. Briggs. He has a pleasant demeanor. And he's competent and polite. He educated me with why the procedure I went him for was not right for me and why the other procedure made more sense. He explained the reasons and the nasal & sinus anatomy. I moved out of TX and so could not continue treatment with Dr. Briggs, but I'm writing this review because I think the doctor is good.

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.
