Went well. Dr Briggs actually listens to his patients and discusses things, unlike other doctors. He is very knowledgeable and professional while also being friendly and not condescending. He does a thorough job without taking a long time-which is hard to find in a doctor. Dr Briggs is a wonderful doctor and I am blessed to be his patient.

I’m writing this review about Dr. Russell Briggs because I want others to experience the superior care that he provides. Dr. Briggs fits the profile of the kind of doctor I want on my healing team. He is exceptional in hisfield, understanding (he listens!) and compassionate (addresses my emotions & feelings of vulnerability regarding my health issues). It is clear to me that he wants me to have the best experience in my healing process, demonstrated by his presence and focus during appointments, the information he provides and his explanation of my radiology images. He offers me choices about my care, and is sure to answer all my questions. I’m comforted and grateful to have Dr. Briggs as my physician. He helps me to get well and feel safe & confident in the process.

Dr. Briggs was great! He saw me right away as a new patient and immediately helped my ailment that had been bothering me for months. My only regret is that I didn't find him months earlier! Highly recommend.

This was the 3rd time my daughter, Kelly, has seen Dr. Briggs and she just loves him. He was prompt and has a great bedside manner. He quickly diagnosed her problem and provided the treatment right there in the office (involvedan excision). He explained what he was going to do and calmed my daughter's fears prior to performing the excision. Presto! Problem taken care of.

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 scansto 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. OnceI 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.
