About Carson Paul Higgs, MD

  • Dr. Higgs currently has long wait times for new patients. Please see below for physicians he recommends to new patients wanting to transfer or establish care at ARC.

    If Dr. Higgs is your primary care physician, please book your appointment via your ARC MyChart account or call 512-ARC-INFO (512-272-4636).


    Dr. Higgs and his wife, Sarah, have four children. Along with chasing the kids, he enjoys more traditional forms of exercise, traveling, and participating in medical missions.

Good health care involves caring for the entire person, addressing their physical, mental, and spiritual health. It is my goal to provide thorough, personal care for each person I see.

    Dr. Higgs is thorough, personable, and treats his patients like intelligent adults. He listens well and also offers thoughtful opinions. I especially like that he is forward-thinking, setting up medication refills and lab orders now rather than making more work for all of us by having me contact him later in the year.
