Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lilja "Dr. James Lilja not only employs the latest in hyperthermia treatments, he actually helped develop these groundbreaking therapies that effectively fight isolated tumors. He speaks Spanish, and his interests include music, where he achieved notoriety and a place in punk rock history as the first drummer for the well-known group The Offspring. He amicably left the group in 1989 to attend medical school. But he's still making history. "

He is a highly competent Doctor and he connects well with patients. I have never visited a male gynecologist ever and I was a little apprehensive but Dr. Lilja was very professional and he made me feel very comfortable with his friendly and caring demeanor. He is indeed the best!
