What People Say About Dr. James Totten, DPM

I have been on a regimen of medications for a multitude of ailments for awhile now. One of my doctors has been advising that I take an anti-depressant but I hadn't been able to tolerate any that I'd tried as they all make my vision blurry, so I was just dealing with stress and depression as best I could. When Dr. Totten recommended PharmDoc Organics CBD oil to me, I was surprised but decided to give it a shot. What was shocking was how WELL it worked! Just a little bit had a calming, moderating effect that I had been seeking but without any side effects. Not only that, but I suffer from fibromyalgia which gives me trouble sleeping due to nerve sensitivity. With CBD oil at night, I was able to cut out one of the Rxs that I was using for that completely. I checked with all my other doctors, and they were all satisfied that there were no negative contra-indications and the source was quality. Dr Totten is a caring, competent and compassionate physician and I'm so glad he's on my team!

There is a reason I travel over 25 miles to visit Dr. Totten. For over 25 years I have relied on his expertise and compassion for treatment of my injuries. From fractured ankles, to torn muscles and ligaments, to gout and other illnesses, Dr. Totten has treated my family members for one reason or another. My father ( also a patient) has said Dr. Totten makes you feel you are the most important person in the world and cradles your foot like a baby. I have no doubt his accurate diagnosis an

Excellent experience with Dr Totten and his staff! He has taken care of both of my teenage daughters over the past year . He is a highly skilled and compassionate physician and took time to explain the treatment plans. His staff is excellent! I highly recommend this wonderful doctor!

He was okay when I first went to him. He seems not to want to deal with insurance to correct his staffs incompetence. The staff member that is responsible for putting in CORRECT diagnosis codes on insurance papers, does not. I would never recommend this doctor even for a toe hangnail.
