Dr James was great but waiting for almost 2 hours every visit is a bit much. Calling staff with questions was difficult especially when I have been calling for the office mgr they have never return any calls as promised and now im sitting in limbo just waiting around this is worst service I have ever dealt with

Dr. James did my sleeve surgery in February. This was almost a year long process in order to be approved by my insurance. I was very impressed with Dr. James and the whole office staff. Everyone was so nice and helpful. Dr. James is an awesome doctor. I felt completely comfortable with him doing this surgery. I have had no problems! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a surgeon.
