Doctor Briggs is professional and businesslike. I found her a bit cold at my first appointment, but she was a tad warmer on my second visit. I feel I received good care from her regardless.
Thanks for seeing me even being late about 30 minutes for my appointment.
Briggs and her staff were great- very short wait when I arrived and once I was in the room, she got to the root of the problem right away, was kind, and was helpful in addressing other related concerns.

It was a wonderful and informative experience!
It was well. She's very straightforward. Providing information on different options in terms of recommendations/referral would have been more helpful. I had to brainstorm a little for questions. Still, I like her.
