Possibly the Best general surgeon in Tacoma. He totally explains what he will do for your problem in understandable terms. Educated in Chicago another PLUS in this town. So nice to your family as they wait to see you post surgery. He fixed an additional issue once he had me on the table. Terrific results.

I would highly recommend Dr. Schoop to all of my family and friends. He is very thorough and explained everything to me in layman terms before my surgery and again the day of surgery and I am very satisfied with the results I received. Sincerely Dennis Dillon

"Life-Saver" Dr. Schopp. I was truly at 'Death's Doorstep' with E-coli poisoning when I met Dr. James Schopp, whom came highly recommended. It was 2010: E-coli was due to a very large mass in my colon, causing it to leak , and stones so large in my gallbladder, they caused my gallbladder to bleed. That mixing of the two led to the E-coli poisoning. Almost half my colon was removed as well as my gallbladder. There were complications that arose. Thanks to Dr. James Schopp, I'm alive!

Dr. Schopp is a caring, excellent surgeon who probably saved my life. I had been in terrible groin pain for over a decade and was made worse by a botched surgery from the (UNCARING, MAIMER) Christopher Arroyo of Gig Harbor. Dr. Schopp comforted me by saying, "I have experience with this sort of problem and can help." He did. I had been written off and sent to a pain clinic by The Fransiscan Organization of SO CALLED DOCTORS. Dr. Schopp is kind and has great bedside manner. Go see Dr. Schopp.

Dr. Schopp was very thorough in explaining my condition and surgical operation. He helped me and my family by providing information that help reduce the mental stress associated with complex disease of colon cancer. He performed surgery not only to remove diseased part but also repaired two other minor problems which in long run would affect me. I highly recommend Dr. Schopp and am grateful to him for his care in my most stressful time.

Amazing surgeon! He truly cares for you. I had gallbladder surgery 5 weeks ago. I would recommend him for any of your surgical needs. I wish he was my primary care doctor. He listens to all your concerns. He is thorough in explaining everything. I am so impressed with the way he interacts with patients. If I could give 10 stars I would. Also, his staff are wonderful too.

I just had hiatal hernia surgery by Dr. Schopp, something he regularly does, as well as gallbladders. There were some complications (I was in worse shape than could have been known), but the surgery was a great success. He is easy to talk with, laid out all the options, and success rates beforehand. He is very caring and while I was still out of it, really well explained everything to my spouse in the waiting room.
