Dr. James is my hero. He has fused bones in both my feet, allowing me to walk without pain. He is an excellent surgeon and I would never go to anyone else. I completely trust his knowledge and skill as a surgeon.

Dr. James explains the whole procedure and what to expect. My ankle was hurting so much I needed an ice pack on it to go to bed. After the surgery there was no pain and after PT I am walking normal without any pain!

Dr James and his staff give you the feeling of being part of the family. Dr James and his PA Lauren take the time to explain everything to you and his staff makes sure all questions are answered before you leave. Very happy with my experience

Went to three appointments, only have doctor say he would not do surgery on my foot because I smoke cigarettes. BTW, they were running late all three appointments, including more than an hour for the last appointment.

Exception skill in my ankle fusion. Conservative treatment for several years prior but when it was time, procedure was thoroughly explained as well as what to expect during the healing process. I am 5 months post surgery and pain free and beyond grateful to have my life back for outdoor activity.

Dr. William C. James III, did two surgeries for me. First was a Peroneus Brevis Tendon Rupture. Second was a Achilles Tendon. Both went perfectly. He is conservative in his recovery path but if you listen to him he will have you back up and running without repeat complications.
