I Love Bowling Green Medical Clinic-the staff are always very helpful and accommodating. My husband & I have never had an issue getting a same day appointment when we’ve been sick. Dr.Phillips is an amazing physician who takes his time and truly listens to you. I myself have been going to Dr.Phillips for 20+ yrs and consider him a part of my extended family. I genuinely care for him and can’t thank him enough for everything he has done for not only me but my family over all these years.

I have been a patient of Dr. James Phillips for many years. Recently I saw him in his office for a routine exam. He has always been not only my doctor but my friend. I feel I can discuss anything with him and he is truly concerned. I have a lot of health problems and he is always willing to listen to my concerns and give me good advice. I would recommend him as a doctor to anyone needing one.
