Dr. James is one of the best dermatologist at UPMC.

Dr. James was excellent in every way! This was my first appointment with her after being referred to her by my PCP, Dr. Margaret Morton. Wonderful provider! Will recommend to friends and family.

Dr. James was really helpful and easy to understand. She explained things to me in a way that made sense

I saw Dr James for an emergency visit due to a suspicious skin growth. she was great and provided excellent care.

We discussed treatment options for my condition. I selected one that I thought was best for my needs. However, the physician neglected to tell me that there would be an extremely high co-pay for this particular medicine. She did say that it required a prior authorization from my insurance. When I arrived home, I called my insurance provider to see if I would be covered for this medicine. They told me yes but the copay would be almost $1,900. You can only imagine how I felt since this medicine was beyond my reach. I did a little research online and found that the medicine maker has a program to reduce costs to make it affordable and that the physician's office needs to fill out paperwork. I do not understand why when a physician would prescribe this medicine that they would not tell you this. If you hav been working with this medicine wi5 patients, then you should know.
