Dr. Jimmy is just that, a humanistic, caring, expert in his field who clearly receives the respect he so well deserves in the OR. In the office he is just the same and more. I have complete and unconditional trust and confidence in everything he says, performs and advises. Mixed feelings about the day he retires, happy for him to enjoy life as I am, but sad for me and his patients when I no longer will be a recipient of his expert care.

I have been seeing Dr. Locklear for almost 20 years now and it's because of him that I'm still here to tell you what a wonderful cardiologist he is. He is kind, compassionate, well-educated and is able to explain things in laymen's terms to his patients. He remains positive despite my severe cardiovascular disease and subsequent heart failure. He is an interventional cardiologist who is always up on the latest medicines and treatments to prolong life and improve the quality of life.

Dr. Locklear was so nice and caring. Very personable. He made me feel I had known him forever. I bet he spent 30 minutes or more with me, explaining everything to me, what he thought might or could be going on and what he wants next steps to be. I was very pleased. I also liked his office staff. They were all so nice.
