Dr James is very friendly and has a great sense of humor. He is very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. I had an umbilical hernia repair with mesh and felt 100% bettetand in no pain what so ever after just 1 week. I really trust his surgical skills.

Dr. James performed a colonoscopy recently and recommended another one in for 10 years. He stated on Colonoscopy Report: Normal Findings: The entire colon was normal. I obtained the photos and there was a polyp that he did not disclose. I took it to my general doctor and she confirmed. I now have to have another colonoscopy because 4 years ago I had a polyp removed that was precancerous. I don't know if polpy is benign, precancerous, or cancerous. GET YOUR PHOTOS AND LOOK YOURSELF!
He thinks he's perfect. Yet he's a total failure.
