I think I wrote about Dr. Trigg in another question. Have been seeing him for 10+ years now. He has immensely helped me manage my diabetes and my general health. We discuss the health issues very thoroughly and he genuinely cares about my health and well being. Great doctor.

see previous comments (excellent) re: Physician

February 2016
Dr. Trigg was very friendly and personable, but I felt a little bit like he disregarded my thoughts and concerns and stopped listening to me once he´d made up his mind as to what my diagnosis was or wasn´t. I may not be a doctor, but I´m not stupid and know when something is wrong.

February 2016
As ever all very professional

Doctor is a good listener & suggested a good pathway for me to embark upon to correct my situation in a suggested timeframe.

Dr. Trigg is one of the best. I appreciate his conservative, common sense approach to my medical problems. He always listens to my self-diagnosis but then goes by what the facts tell him.

Super kudos to Dr. Trigg! I have been seeing him for over a decade now and cannot imagine being with another provider! I appreciate how kind, friendly and professional he is--and is a superb doctor. He makes good decisions and takes my concerns into consideration.

November 2015
Dr. Trigg has been my primary care doctor for 8 years now, he is the best doctor I have ever had. He cares about his patients and it gives me peace of mind knowing that he is my doctor.

November 2015
I absolutely ADORE Dr Trigg!!! He is so easy to talk to and makes me feel like I am his only - and MOST IMPORTANT - patient! I also love his easy going manner (very comforting) and thoroughness, coupled with just the right amount of good humor! He certainly puts his patients at ease. Most importantly - because of his kind and caring nature I would NEVER HESITATE to see him for an urgent medical problem/concern and always look forward to my annual wellness exams.

On Patients
"My greatest joy in medicine derives from caring for patients I know and who have come to know and trust me. I also believe that patients who are able to develop this type of doctor-patient relationship receive the best medical care anywhere."

On Specialty
"Internal medicine, I believe, has taught me not only to care for primary care problems, but its broad training in the medical subspecialties has allowed me to feel comfortable treating the majority of medical problems that occur in adults."
