Dr. James is wonderful. After seeing other orthos for a decade, he was able to diagnose my issue and scheduled surgery quickly. I felt like he truly listened to my concerns and addressed all of them.

Dr. James fixed my shattered wrist and most recently a rotator cuff tear. He has always been very easy to talk with. He discusses all options and encourages participation in the final decision making process as far as physical therapy to surgery. I live in Pelham but would go to him in Prattville if needed. I had my surgery at Shelby.

Dr. James is outstanding! He was able to specifically diagnose my knee pain. While he is an Orthopedic Surgeon, he did not push me into a "surgical only option". After ordering the approproate tests, he was able to explain, in detail, the multitude of issues with my knee. I was given honest options for course.of treatment, which allowed me to make an educated decision. He was spot on and I was back to my normal actice lifestyle, including playing tennis within two weeks.

Dr. James has operated on my son four times now (most recently today!) for repeated meniscus tears. He has never failed to be amazing, taking the time to talk me through the procedures, his findings and expectations. He has sent biopsies to the lab following three of the surgeries , even talking directly to the lab tech because he questions their decision. I recommend him to anyone having orthopedic issues - super friendly, very knowledgeable and more caring than most doctors I have dealt with!

I can't say enoughabout the ecxellent care I received last year from Dr. James. Dr. James is so very skilled/competent and a genuinely caring physician and surgeon. I really lucked out when the emergency room doctor referred me to Dr. James when I was treated for a broken wrist. in My surgery could not have been better and through his direction I now am back to 100%.

It is a wonderful Dr. he has treated me for a cyst on my right wrist and for my knee that was injured in a car accident. He is all about being through and treating the patient without having to do major or minor surgery unless it is absolutely needed.
