Ratings for Dr. Stephen E. Wiggins
My doctor for nearly everything for almost 20 years. Best doctor I ever had. Now he is gone from the practice and there is only a PA there who is most uncooperative. They are looking for a replacement doctor, but will have a hard time replacing Dr. Wiggins. It is a lost to our area to have him gone. No one will say where.
Unfortunately, after having Dr. Wiggins as my doctor for many years, he is no longer at MedStar Convenient Health Care. He always took the time to listen, ordered the appropriate tests as needed, and provided the correct diagnoses and treatment. No one at the practice would tell me where he went.

Recently I saw Dr. Wiggins, after years of not being able to be his patient due to insurance changes, And I had forgotten what an excellent fanily doctor he is. I had several complaints and he patiently listened, discussed each item and then came up with the appropriate tests that I needed to have done. The findings then have led me to a specialists that I need to see due to the blood test results. He truly cares about his patients and I am very glad to have him in my corner. Before this past visit, another doctor did not listen to me, and I was left to look for another opinion. You may wait to see him, but he is thorough, competent, and follows through with follow-ups.
Dr. Wiggins runs a clinic-type office and gives preference to walk-ins. Appointment scheduling is not encouraged by the staff, however, walk-in visits will often result in spending quite a bit of time in the waiting room. He's friendly enough, but sometimes it seems that he is quick to reach a conclusion without listening to the full situation.
