I've been seeing Dr James almost 3yrs. He's always attentive at visits, no matter the severity. Very knowledgeable and great bedside manner. The office is prompt in replying to request of every nature ie refills, paperwork, general concerns w/o visit. He's decreased his visits as hes gotten closer to retirement, he definitely deserves it. But I'm dreading having to find a Dr that is in the second league as Dr. James

Dr. James and his staff are the best. He always takes as much time as needed to address my various issues. He understands and tries to talk to all of his patients like friends. If it's not something unreasonable, he will order needed tests when requested. If he can't help, he quickly refers you to a specialist for your problem. He and his MA are great at returning messages to you on Mychart, or by leaving a message for him. Office staff are very kind and the building is always very clean. All in all, it's a great place. Also, they can do bloodwork there and Xray's.

Dr. James is the best doctor that I have ever been to in my entire life. He is up-beat and friendly all the time. In addition, he listens to you, shows true concern for your situation. My husband and I have been going to Dr. James for about 20 years, or so. However, when we were approved for United Health Care Community Plan (Medicaid), we were cut off by the office staff. My heart hurts because I feel like I lost a good friend. So, Doc, if things change, please call us! We miss you!

It was great. It always is. He shows great concern and compassion for his patients. If he does not think he can help, he will send you to someone who can. Morning or afternoon, he always has a smile on his face and shows no impatience or frustration to his patients.
