I felt that Dr. Karen James was very short and her bedside manner was poor. I tried to mention certain issues that I had, but she interrupted me on several instances. I think maybe she was in the office no more than 15 minutes, but certainly no more. The nurse was excellent!!! I felt there might be some hope after talking to the nurse, but the doctor gave me NO hope. No way to improve my quality of life, no way to help with my breathing. She had no desire to help at all. Disappointed!!
