Dr. James is amazing and I would trust no one else to manage my overall health. She combines genuine care with a balanced degree of accountability. She brings her training, education, experience and a great bedside manner to the practice.

Dr. James and Kris are amazing. Dr. James diagnosed a mysterious problem after one visit and followed up with me every day to make sure I was feeling better. She also connected me with a great gastroenterologist who is now an essential part of my healthcare team. Working with her and Seattle Premier Health was so much better than my other doctor experiences that it's almost impossible to describe.

Karen James caused me permanent nerve damage from overdosing me with meds. I could not sue because I was too ill trying to just survive. She is out of date and her lack of knowledge is dangerous- her partner is just as bad- truly a scary time in my life - looking back I wonder how I didn't end up dying because of her ignorance- and well plain stupidity. Run away- don't see this provider!

Save your money and health- Be EXTREMELY carefully- this woman is not aware of meds she prescribes and will also shove you off on specialist so she doesn't have to think or take responsibility- NOT a good doc in any form- I have permanent nerve damage from her 'treatment'. She just doesn't have the intelligence to take care of you. Not a critical thinker - Nice lady but really go someplace else!
