Dr. James came in the treatment room introduced himself, informed me of the procedure, gave me time to ask question and then the procedure began. Excellent bedside manner. Receptionist was extremely polite, paper work ready to sign, all the nurses were outstanding very well trained. Anesthesiologist super colossal, did a great job. Thank you

I had a routine colonoscopy with Dr James. All seemed to go well until 7 hours later when I developed chills and than fever. I went to the emergency room where I was diagnosed with a raging bacterial infection. A cat scan showed no perforation but an injury where a polyp was removed which I was told caused the infection.

My visit for a routine colonoscopy was painless and he and the clinic staff were professional, friendly, and had the best attitudes! We laughed a lot and although the prep for such a necessary exam sucks, the procedure was easy.

Dr. James has provided care for me, as needed, since 2003. I have always been completely happy with his care. I would (and already have) recommend him to friends and family. Thank you Dr. James.
in Coeur d'Alene, ID |
Dr. James does did not take the time to listen to any of my concerns. It was apparent that he didn't even take the time to review my chart before entering the exam. He appeared to be rushed to leave the exam room. I've never had such poor medical care in my life. I left his office and immediately sought a GI consult elsewhere.
