As great as it can be. He is a YANKEE fan. So we can't hold that against him. Every league needs the Hated One and those Yankoff are it. But when it comes to Nephrology, Dr. James is a Great one. Only nock is he has TOO many patients. Plus he Visits like 11 Clinics. But he does spend the needed amount of time with you. 5*****

My dad was seeing Dr. Ryan for failing kidneys. Both my parents loved Dr. Ryan because of his straight forward talk given with true heart. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Ryan while my dad was in the hospital. My dad did pass and Dr. Ryan said previously that he had not long to live. He did so with understanding of my mom's grief. I'm sorry I don't have more room to say what a wonderful doctor and, more importantly, wonderful man Dr. James Ryan is. Thank you for what you did for our family.

Dr Ryan is way beyond Awesome. He sees his patients in their chair at dialysis. He has helped us make many decisions about my husbands care. He has called me as late as 11pm at night while still at either his office or at the hospital to discuss different ideas about my husbands treatments. I so recommend him. We Love Dr Ryan. Don't know what we would do with out him......

Have seen more than my share of doctors in my 77 years, but can recall none better -- primary or specialist -- than Dr. Ryan. Definitely not a member of the "in-and-out-the-door-see-you-in-6-months" School of Medicine. Very thorough...he listens....speaks plainly....takes time to explain things....does his best to simplify the complicated....very likeable.
