About Me

If you or your loved one receives a cancer diagnosis, trust Ally Higgins, MD, for compassionate care. She is a medical oncologist at Avera Medical Group Oncology & Hematology in Sioux Falls, SD, with a special interest in caring for patients with breast cancer

“Three things motivate me: my patients facing cancer with dignity, my colleagues who provide compassionate care to patients, and my hope that we are improving people’s lives each day,” said Dr. Higgins.

Expert Care in Oncology

Dr. Higgins collaborates with her team of surgeons and radiation oncologists to give patients facing cancer the best care possible. This multidisciplinary approach leads to personalized treatment plans which may include:

  • Hormone therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy
  • Targeted therapy
  • Supportive care

"Rapid advancements in cancer care allow us to give patients more effective treatments that help them live longer and live better,” said Dr. Higgins.

Active Lifestyle

Dr. Higgins is thrilled to be back in her hometown of Sioux Falls and prioritizes spending time with her family outside of work. She enjoys time with her husband and two sons hiking, playing sports, and spending time with extended family.
