What People Say About Dr. James Rooks, MD
Reply
In 2015 I was diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus , had a pet scan and was told that I had pancreatic cancer as well. Saw Dr Rooks, he looked at the data asked questions re: family history and didn't feel that it was pancreatic cancer. Moved aggressively with surgery the next week and saved my life. He is a great surgeon and Mississippi is blessed to have him!
