Dr. Michael Higgins of Anesthesia Associates works together with Dr. Kolinski and Dr. Crosby to serve our patients who have anesthesiology requirements beyond local anesthetic. Dr. Higgins has been associated with our practice for over 20 years and is a valued colleague. Although most treatment in our office can be completed using local anesthetic, some patients may prefer the option of either general anesthetic or sedation therapy during their care. Scheduling Dr. Higgins for your surgical appointment can be facilitated through our Treatment Coordinator. His fees are billed by Anesthesia Associates, and are separate from those billed by Dr. Kolinski and Dr. Crosby.
