Good experience

After seeing my incompetent family doctor for a complete physical exam, and a week later winding up in the ER with blood clots in my urine, I went to see Dr. Highshaw. He is now located in Grand Forks ND. After a CTScan and cystoscopy, he immediately got to the root cause of my problem - extremely enlarged prostate. EVERYTHING was done in one visit. He thoroughly checked the kidneys, bladder, and prostate for any sign of cancer. The bleeding was caused by severe bronchitis that my regular doctor refused to treat. The coughing got so bad that I ruptured a blood vessel in my prostate. The rupture healed by itself in a few days. He put me on Flomax for the enlarged prostate and I am good as new. Wait time was kind of long. However, they fit me in on VERY short notice and I didn't mind waiting.

Concerned son

My 84 year old mother with dementia went to ER because she could not urinate. They found blood in her urine and put a cathider bag on her. After several test at Dr. Highshaws office we finally saw him. He talked to my mother and then to me and stated she had a condition the her brain waves were sending the wrong message to her bladder and she would have to wear the bag from now on. I then asked him about the blood in her urine when she was seen at the E.R. He said bold in urine? I said didn't you review here chart? He then did a quick exam and said she had a tumor in her bladder. It has been 3 months and no surgery and today I hear he has left this office. I believe my mothers tumor has grown and his initial lack of care and subsequent delay in surgery has shortened her life.

Run

This is the worst Dr. I have ever been to. The staff is undertrained and he uses procedures that the FDA recommended Drs. stop using when they used a warning back in 2006. He will smooth talk you and act like its a safe operation but on the day of my surgury he received a bulletin stating they were banning that type of surgury. There is an safe way of doing the operation yet he chose not to learn it. Putting me in exstream pain and causing my problem to grow into a disabilating ailment. I have constant pain and have to wear diapers now thanks to him! Call your insurance and ask for a compatent Dr. Dont risk 2+ surgeries and a loss of quality of life like I did. DONT FALL FOR HIS LIES!!!
