What People Say About Dr. James Hicks, MD
Reply
I waited almost an hour to see Dr Hicks, he came in and asked all the same questions his nurse had and offered no assistance. He said he was going to prescribe me something for my ear issue and when I showed up at my pharmacy, they told me nothing was called in. This was a horrible experience and I would never recommend Dr Hicks.
