    He did surgery on my carotid artery about 4 years ago. He was an excellent doctor. He had come highly recommended by my treating physician as well as friends. Following the surgery, he followed up with me annually. Going to his office was like visiting a friend. His staff was awesome and extremely professional and gave every indication of a personal interest in me and my medical care. While I was in the hospital, for surgery, all the nurses raved about Dr. James. He saved my life.
