Though it started off so well that I recommended family/friends to Dr. James, my mind has changed and I will be finding another doctor asap! I've ignored the negative aspects of her practice for a while because I thought she was a good doctor. She's decent, but her level of professionalism leaves a lot to be desired. I'm still in shock that she actually hung up the phone on me....so unprofessional and disappointing! So much for trying to support a woman of color.

I cannot express in words how empathetic and caring Dr. Miriam James is. I was very sick for a very long time and had seen a multitude of different doctors who all dismissed my illness advising me I was healthy and they saw nothing wrong with me. Years went by, I continue to seek help and cries went on deaf ears. I went to Dr. James and she looked at me and said” I can’t find anything in all the testing I’ve done any issues, but I believe you when you say your sick and I am going to get you the help you need, I feel like it is auto immune related”. She refereed me to a rheumatologist who diagnosed me with Lupus. If it wasn’t for Dr James I might not be here. Me and daughter could never thank her enough, she is a amazing doctor!

Dr James and her staff are highly unprofessional. They lack human sensitivity and also lack empathy. Which I feel is huge part of medical practice and must have. They will discuss other patient information in front of waiting patients which I know is a violation of the HIPPA LAW!!!!!! In the past few years dr James she has accumulated a bigger patient clientele a bigger office and has began giving less attention to patients.

I was going to Dr. James office and I must say it is very unprofessional. They chew gum loudly at the front desk, they do not have change for their customer when there is a 15$ copay when a 20 dollar bill is presented. The receptionist & the DR can be rude/disrespectful. Recpt. does not know hat is going on but will belittle the medical assant that is tending to the patients with kindness and understanding. I would not recommend this ofice until they get it together. Patients are IMPORTANT!!

This office is not professional at all. Luckily, I am a fairly healthy person so I only went for well visits. Chewing gum at the front desk, not greeting me as I walk in and speaking personal patient info over the phone for the entire waiting room to hear are just a few issues I had with this office. Dr. James is nice, however she could not review simple x-ray results with me and referred me back to the physician who ordered it. She was my PCP for quite some time but now I'm fed.

On my first visit I brought all my pills and explained my conditions to her telling her I would like her to be my PCP. All through this she didn't even take up a pen she just stood there and listened did not record any of my information that was a big red flag. I then called back for an appointment and for her to send me a refill on my mess I was told she was doing it got to the pharmacy that night no one had called in my meds. Very unprofessional. Excuse was they didn't have my meds on file.
