Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation at which time your diagnosis and probable treatment options will be explained to you.


Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

Your surgical referral slip and x-rays/test results if applicable.

A list of medications you are currently taking (including dosage and times) and any past surgical procedures.

Your medical insurance card(s)

Your picture ID.





Our staff will answer your questions and, if necessary, Dr. Higgins will return phone calls at a convenient time of day as to not interfere with the evaluation and treatment of other patients being seen in our office.





Office Visits & Surgeries:

Full payment, copays, and deductibles are due at the time of your appointment.  Our office also collects full payment (copays and deductible) at the time a surgery is scheduled.  Every effort is made to accurately estimate this charge, but please be aware that this will only be an estimate.  The final determination of payment will lie with your insurance carrier.



The fees discussed by us with you represent the fees for the services provided by Moore County Foot & Ankle only.  Hospital, laboratory, imaging, or other physician services will not be included in this estimate.
