Dr. James delivered our daughter in 2015. She made the delivery of our daughter a wonderful experience. I highly recommend her for any ob-gyn issues and routine care. She is very knowledgeable and straight forward.

My husband says I hit the jackpot and won the lottery when Dr. James and Dr. Monnig became the physicians for my surgery. I agree with him. I couldn't be more pleased with either of them. Not happy about the wait time to see Dr. James. Each time I have had an appointment to see her the wait was an issue in the waiting room as well as the exam room. Still I highly recommend either or both of them.
