Mostly reommend this doctor
Felt the resident, [...], and Dr. Biggins answered my questions very well.
Dr. Biggin's articulation and demeanor was appreciated...
I appreciated Dr. Biggins' body language. Front and center toward me- attentive and valid concern. He is very logical- black and white which is understandable. But us ladies sometimes want empathetic verbage...lol! He was GREAT overall!
Excellent service & Dr Biggins is the best
Dr Biggins. Can't praise him enough. I wish all physicians were like him.
Scott Biggins was very personable. He seemed very interested in me and my care. I felt like he really cared about me and my needs. He gave me his business cards and said if any concerns or need to send records from another medical office, just send to him or have records FAXed to him.
Dr Biggens was excellent, can't say enough good things. [...]
[...] The Eastside UW Hep. Dept. is run so efficiently... from the receptionists, security, blood draw, to the nurses, everyone is on top of their games. But, MOST importantly, *Dr. Biggins is amazing! *Dr. Biggins - I could write pages - he is so prepared w/my past medical info... even if it's been months since I've seen him. He is attentive, caring, and clearly explains things in 'layman's terms." He has been comforting & encouraging when having to deliver what hasn't always been positive news. I never feel rushed... or like I'm just another number.... and I know this is getting increasingly rare in the medical world these days. Thank you for continuing to support such a fine medical institution - keeping doctors of this HIGH CALIBER! I recommend you to all my family & friends.
*Dr. Biggins is thorough, honest, engaged and available. [...]
