Dr. Higdon and his staff have always provided me with the finest care and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing breast reconstruction or plastic surgery.

I absolutely love *Dr. Higdon and his team. I've already recommended him to several others that have also scheduled appointments. The options are limited in my area, so I am VERY enthusiastic about making sure others know they have options. I'm a HUGE fan of Vanderbilt Breast Center and will continue giving it my HONEST (same) recommendation. You made a very difficult season in my life SO, SO much easier!

Dr.Higdon goes above and beyond any doctor I have had. He makes me feel like we are in this journey together. He listens to my concerns and then gives me recommendations for them. My procedures have been flawless. Usually I get sick after surgery. He makes sure my anesthesiologist takes special care that I do not, and I haven't gotten sick. I am so thankful that he has been my doctor during this process. The stress of it alone can be overwhelming, but his demeanor and the concern for my concerns is amazing. Cancer is scary and I am glad I am going through this reconstruction process with him as well as my family.
