The best doctor and staff in our area. They are always smiling and ready to help you, no matter how busy. I love that Dr. Refai actually takes the time to listen, not many doctors do that anymore. I'll never use another Dr., unless Dr. Refai recommends them...

Dr. Deering always takes the time to listen to your concerns and is compassionate to your issues. He was with me when my heart was trying to reject my stints. He never left my side until he knew that I was ok. He's the BEST!!

Review for Dr. John James, MD

The wait time is awful. The receptionist (who can't smile) tells you (after you get there) that you should expect to wait at least two hours. From my experience two hour wait time, you should consider yourself lucky! For a 9:15 appointment we walked out of the office at 1:24.

I have been driving to BHM for years because I lost faith in local doctors. Dr. Hinkle has restored my faith in local medicine. He takes his time every time I see him and his followup is outstanding. Best of all I trust him. I would recommend him to everyone.

His vast knowledge in medicine and his caring for the patient is at the top. With someone that good, comes the problem of booking an appointment but once you get in, it is worth it. His staff is second to none and us, the patient, is their goal.

Well. I'm not taken seriously about aches and pains. Apparently things have to be off with labs and images before they believe anyone. I will never go back. Tired of being treated like pill popper. I don't even take pain pills. I want to receive proper treatment not bandaides.
