About Dr. Biggs

Philosophy of care

My philosophy is to utilize state-of-the-art knowledge and care in a compassionate manner to treat the whole patient (body, mind and spirit). I picture myself as a motivator of patients for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. I feel strongly about the use of exercise and diet to support appropriate medical and therapeutic modalities and to help people live longer and have more fulfilling lives. As for the use of medication, my philosophy is to not be the first and to not be the last. I understand the financial strains of our population and prescribe generic drugs when ever possible.

Why I entered medicine

I had an interest in science and interacting with and helping people. My interest began in 10th grade biology at Liberty High School. I've always enjoyed interacting with people socially, on the athletic field and academically. I especially enjoy interacting with the patients of the Lehigh Valley where my roots are. I enjoy discussing all aspects of people's lives, which helps me to better treat the whole person.

Community involvement

I coached basketball and baseball for 15 years while my four children were involved in the Northeast Little League and Liberty High School sports programs. My wife and I are members of the First Presbyterian Church in Bethlehem. We support church activities and New Bethany Ministries.

Personal interests

I play golf, go to Eagles games, attend University of Pennsylvania athletic events, run daily and read Revolutionary biographies. My wife and I follow our children closely in their careers and activities.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
