This doctor was exceptionally kind and understanding. He had reviewed my health before the appointment and had ordered an ekg before he saw me. He had a very reassuring viewpoint and was exceptionally calm. I was very impressed with his treatment of me and my concerns. He is the best doctor I have seen.

My care provider was very thorough in reviewing my condition since my last 6 month visit. He was attentive to the changes I had experienced and explained that no changes in my medications were necessary at this time. His comment regarding my present condition was encouraging.

I feel like James lacks empathy. He fat shames me each time and acts like he doesn't believe I exercise. I dread having to meet with him.
