What People Say About Dr. Linda James, MD
Reply
Had post surgery adhesions several yrs after cancer surgery. 5 things needed attending including a stomach that had gotten behind the intestines, a hole, necrosis from intestine being choked off, etc. An army trained surgeon she checked the intestines from top to bottom and found a mess. She explains in full, before and after, never cutting short on details and time. Cheery, beautiful, competent. Never rushes in and out. Willing to stay and chat. Very encouraging. I wouldn't use anyone else

She performed a Laparoscopic Appendectomy on me and I am back to work at 100% just two weeks later. She spoke to me twice before the surgery and once again afterwards to see how I was doing. Her and her staff went over and above to make sure I felt comfortable and informed about what was going on with me throughout the entire experience. I would highly recommend Dr.Linda James and the Mendocino Coast Hospital to anyone.
