Dr. James was great. She listened and was knowledgeable, professional, and kind. I wish I could see her for everything.

Dr Alaina was amazing and really took great care of me. she provided me options that I was never offered and so far the regime has kept me healthy.

The wait was ridiculously long, and the staff was not very apologetic about it. Also, Dr. James seemed bothered that I had a lot of questions. I had to ask her to explain things in more detail too. I don't think I'll be returning to this doctor.

It was a pleasure to meet Dr. James. She was extremely thorough, provided pertinent information regarding my concerns, and answered all of my questions. During my visit my blood pressure was extremely high and Dr. James along with her assistants showed the utmost concern regarding my well being, even suggesting I go to the ER before returning home. Their concern was greatly appreciated.
