What People Say About Dr. Ralph Highshaw, MD

Dr Highshaw is a very caring Dr. I suffered with a large kidney stone for months ,before seeing him. Dr Highshaw knew exactly what to do and took care of my issue right away. He took time to explain in detail my treatment (lithotripsy) and was there, before and after surgery. Most of the time, I dislike seeing a doctor, but I looked forward to my visit with him and his staff. I highly recommend him.

Worst surgery experience. He never showed up prior to my surgery or saw me during my hospital stay. He changed the agreed upon procedure and then denied that there were any issues. After my surgery I saw him in the clinic then poof he was no longer affiliated with that healthcare system. I would NOT recommend this dr / surgeon to anyone.
