Dr. James is a very thoughtful, considerate doctor. She listens to my concerns and asks a lot of questions. I am very grateful that she is my doctor.

excellent care with Dr.James. l am most appreciative for her care and advice. Dr. James was sensitive to my concerns.She did not minimize my problem.

December 18, 2017

Dr. James took more time to talk with me than any dermatologist I have seen in the past. I felt that she listened to me and she addressed all my questions and concerns and discussed follow up steps in detail.

is very kind and caring and listens

December 11, 2017

She listened, was very compassionate, considerate and had empathy. in addition, she was going to consult with another MD and research anything that may help with an illness with which there is no cure but perhaps treatments that may help.

Even though I waited an extra 15 minutes to see the doctort, she was well worth the wait.

Alaina was fantastic. I thought she was courteous, she listened well, she treated me with respect and care. She was competent and took care of the two issues I was having right away - during the appt.

November 27, 2017

Dr. James was wonderful. She spent enough time with me and clearly explained her diagnosis for what was happening and how I could deal with the issue. It was also relatively easy to get an appointment with her (I had about a two-week wait), which was a welcome change from other dermatologists in UPMC's network. I would definitely see her again/recommend her to family and friends.

October 05, 2017

all staff members were thorough, and very responsive to my questions, concerns and needs: past, current, and even future. I recommend Dr. James to everyone I know; she spends time with me and knows my history each time she is with me. I feel empowered to make decisions about my healthcare in consultation with my doctor;
