He was dead set against physical therapy with me at any point after surgey. He released me without discussing my degree of pain with me. I was an invalid until my Personal MD prescribed some medication and gave me a referral to physical therapy. PT has helped me very much so far. I have to fault Dr James for being opposed to physical therapy! Being released from his care while still needing pain meds was, in my view, abusive.

Dr. James sincerely tried to find my issues. I had a discectomy years prior and have developed a lot of arthritis. Experiencing back and neck pain, neurotic in nature. He did not want to go in and just operate to try and relieve some of the pain because was not sure what the root cause was. Some of his associates made me feel like I was seeking pain meds and that was very upsetting. Pain was real and still is but something I must live with. .

Dr. James has the best bedside manners that I have ever run across in Indy. He is very kind and compassionate. He shoots straight with you and let's you know what is expected of you to get the best results. His office staff has also been one of the best, always going the extra mile to get the answers or information we needed, and in a very timely manner!! I so appreciate all of their help.

I felt like my issues were not address. He cut me off when I was address my back and pain issues and how the VA treated me.He reminded me that the VA told me that I needed to lose weight and do some rehab in which I might or might not get better.I told him about me losing 30 pounds on my current diet and that it is hard for me to get around and to work out due to the amount of pain I am in even with the current weight loss. He told me that I could still get to the refrigerator ok, I can work out
