Dr.James was very nice. I could not have been more happy with my appointments. He and his staff took great care of back pain.

Dr. James has helped review my spinal condition and MRI's. He has advised me on physical therapy and non operative treatments. I would trust him to perform surgery if my pain does not get better. He has an excellent bedside/office manner and explained my condition thoroughly. Would recommend him.

I saw Dr.James and could not be more happy with the care I received. He was able to preform a procedure on me and my pain is finally gone! His bedside manor is outstanding. He always spent plenty of time with me for all questions I had. He is now seeing several family members and they are also very happy.

Dr. James has an excellent bedside manner. However, he severed my wife's vocal cord during surgery. Shortly after my wife's surgery, we learned that he lost his privileges at Northside Forsyth Hospital for too many readmits and was later removed from staff at Resurgens Medical. While he is a very nice person, I would advise you to seek another doctor. Many follow ups with other physicians indicated that he was know for carelessness during his surgeries.
