He spent time & knowledge at your pace. Was very intent on hearing issues from the patient perspective. Then proceeded to discuss each & every detail with you. He recommends the conservative route before any other. I highly recommend Dr Sanchez.

Dr. Hamilton was very knowledgable and cordial. He explained the procedure and allowed me to think about it before agreeing to the surgery. He had me come in regularly to check my progress until he released me.

Review for Dr. Anna Vanderheiden, MD

Sticks his nose where it doesn't belong. He will mind your own business instead of treating you for what you're seeing him for.

I will not EVER trust him. What happened during my appointment was totally different than what he documented. He wrote in his notes that he completed a procedure but he refused to do it as I requested. So now I have to go to another physician to see if it actually was done.

Review for Dr. Patrick Partin, MD

I just moved here from Alaska. I needed a primary care physician and Dr. Graham was willing to see me. He is BY FAR the best doctor I have EVER been to in my life! I am so blessed he was willing to take me as his patient. I have a very long and extensive medical history! Go see him and you'll see!

Jun 25 2019

Review for Dr. James Graham Jr, MD

I waited one hour and 20 minutes for my appointment and then left. Have not been contacted by him, his nurse or his office to apoloigze or schedule a time that he would actually keep. His lack of respect for my time was telling. If he was in any other business he would soon be out of business.
