Colusa Doctor Relocates Office

Lawrence Highman-1It’s hard to believe there is a doctor still making house calls, but Dr. Lawrence Highman packs a medical bag and travels to some his most critical patients.

Serving the community for over 37 years, Dr. Highman was initially recruited by Eskaton Hospital, now Colusa Regional Medical Center, as an independent practitioner. Today, Highman practices medicine at his private practice located in the Colusa Regional Medical Center’s Medical Plaza on East Webster Street.

Due to recent growth in business and lack of space, Dr. Highman recently announced he will be moving his practice to another location.

“We were seeking a place to coordinate and provide better care for our patients,” said Dr. Lawrence Highman, “my staff and I are excited about the move.”

March 29, is the last day Dr. Highman will see patients at his current location and relocating his medical practice to 101 Third Street in Colusa.

Dr. Highman commented that his practice will reopen on April 12, at the Third Street location.

“The reason I continue to serve this community is because it reminds me of the small town I grew up in,” said Dr. Highman.

He also commented that as he was searching for a home for his medical practice he had a set of requirements.

“I wanted to find a place with little air pollution, no snow, no tornados, and very few earthquakes,” said Dr. Highman, “The bonus was that Colusa is also on the Pacific Flyway.”

When not attending to patients or his family, Highman enjoys duck hunting and pheasant hunting. A skill he learned while serving in the Army.

“I was drafted during into the Army during the Vietnam War, but was sent to Korea,” said Dr. Highman.

It was there he served as a paratrooper.

“My mom wasn’t very happy that I was jumping out of planes and told me to stop,” said Dr. Highman, “So I no longer jumped out of airplanes… I jumped out of helicopters.”

Dr. Highman recalled that when he jumped out of the aircraft, it was somewhat peaceful and quiet.

“As you descended you would go through several layers of air and the chute would capture different sounds from miles away. You would hear conversations or cows, but you were hundreds of feet up in the air,” said Dr. Highman.

Dr. Highman started his general practice and surgical services with one goal in mind – to be family oriented and to take care of his patients. He specializes in general family practice, surgical services, and everything else = except neurology, cardiology, and urology.

“I handle various cases from bumps and bruises to infectious diseases, and specializes in Endoscopy and Colonoscopy,” said Dr. Highman, “I also try to stay current on topics such as diabetes, infectious disease, nutrition, and wound care.”
