Dr Tom Higgs
1st December 2014
I suffered for at least 7 years at my previous doctors with lots of symptoms that were never diagnosed properly. I think they must have thought I was an hypochondriac. On my first visit to Dr Higgs, he listened to what I had put up with previously and made an appointment with a Neurologist to check for myasthenia Gravis, who confirmed this. A scan of my Thymus gland was arranged, which confirmed the diagnosis. I was put on tablets for straight away and almost instantly my life changed, with several of my symptoms being cured or vastly reduced.
I cannot thank Dr Higgs enough for changing my life, especially as the Thymus gland was found to be enlarged and was removed very quickly at Newcastle hospital.
I am still recovering from the operation and all the staff at the surgery are superb and fully understanding of my condition. I rate this surgery the highest possible for all the help I have received.
