What People Say About Dr. James O'Keefe Jr, MD
Dr. O'Keefe is outstanding--he takes his time, he listens, he truly cares--that is so apparent in every appointment I have had with him. He is one of the top Cardiologists in the country and works to find healthy and natural ways to stay heart healthy! I feel very fortunate he is in Kansas City!

He had little to no interest in my case. I have a 100% clogged artery, he had no idea, lied about my medication, and a spectator to my procedure. He's more interested in selling his crap and books than caring for patients. St Luke's should dump him
