To Referring Physicians: Welcome and Thank you
Thank you for considering Dr. Thomas Higgins in the care of your patient. We understand that each and every patient you refer has a special relationship with you, and it is important to us to provide the kind of quality care that fosters collaboration, kindness, and expert management. We welcome referrals from primary care physicians and specialists.
To Referring Otolaryngologists, Allergists, and other specialists
Otolaryngologists and medical allergists around the community periodically require assistance in the management of difficult sinonasal disorders. We are privileged to have the opportunity to provide tertiary-level rhinologic care. Please feel free to contact Dr. Higgins at any time for questions regarding management of your patient with sinonasal disease, even if you do not necessarily intend to refer the patient at this time. In addition, because we recognize that the general otolaryngologist or medical allergist may be managing concomitant medical conditions for the patient, we value the importance for ongoing care by the referring physician. Unless requested, we focus our management on the sinonasal complaint and have the patient return to the referring physician for management of allergies, asthma, and other ENT problems.
