Wonderful physician: intelligent plus empathetic.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

My mother was EXTREMELY anxious about visiting a new doctor after a recent two week hospital stay. Dr James was the perfect match for her - she put her at ease immediately, engaged her in the discussion about her health care and views on treatment. She understood the out of the ordinary issues that my mother has and readily accepted her as a new patient. My mother commented to me - "That's the longest any doctor has ever spent with me." My mom event filled out a compliment card in the lobby as we made her next appointment. As a daughter who is new to parent care, Dr James was a breath of fresh air and the best security blanket I could ask for - all rolled up into one doctor!
