Ratings for Dr. Howard James
Dr. James is awesome. In a town where there are many uncaring, 'churn them out quickly' walk-in clinics, it is refreshing to find someone who enjoys being a family doctor and will spend time with his patients. His quirkiness is part of his charm. I appreciate the time he spent going through my health history and ensuring I obtained the appropriate medical care. He is not only my doctor, he also is the GP for my husband and mother.
No other docs available. most of us are older and cant find another doc. we complain while waiting 4 him. he is late coming back from lunch. then he leaves 2 get coffee and comes back 20 minutes later. he hires a new secretary every few months. this man asks us to write fake reviews and writes some himself. h is a phony.
My wife and I consider ourselves quite lucky to have been Dr. James patients for over 10 years now. He has been treating us in a way which has been consistently professional yet friendly and respectful. During our visits we never feel rushed or not paid sufficient attention to. Dr. James also has a vast network of outstanding specialist physicians and makes referrals to them promptly should the need arise. On a number of occasions , he has also shown human kindness and empathy, the qualities, in my view, badly needed in our over- crowded health-care system. A couple of months ago, for example, when waiting anxiously for the result of a CT SCAN, I was pleasantly surprised with Dr. James' phone-call, delivered in person, to let me know that my test was "fine" and that "there is nothing to worry about." Many thanks Dr. James! Paul and Cindy
Dr Howard James has been my family doctor for over 10 years. He is a very devoted, hard-working and caring doctor. He is friendly, humble and has an emphatetic attitude trying to really know how I feel with respect to my health issues. He is very thorough in what he does, conscientious and inquisitive. Thank you, Dr James and more power to you. Dante S.
HAVE HAD HIM AS MY DOCTOR FOR OVER 25 YRS. EACH VISIT HE IS ALWAY FRIENDLY. SOME PEPOLE COMPLAIN ABOUT WAITING TIME. REMEMBER EACH PATIENT CASE IS DIFFERNT (SO IT MIGHT TO A LITTLE LONGER). STAFF IS GREAT ALSO. I ALWAYS TELL HIM TO TAKE MORE TIME OFF BUT HE IS VERY CARING FOR HIS PATIENTS. KEEP IT UP & TRY TO TAKE MORE TIME OFF TO ENJOY LIFE. A VERY PLEASED PATIENT - MIKE MCC
My Mother moved here from Sask after my father had passed away ,they had lived in the same house for 40 years and when she moved out here to be with all the kids and grandchildren she did not have a Family Doc. She found Doc. James and went to him . He had said to my mother you are a new patient and I do not know anything about you and your files are in Sask. so we will check you out from head to toe . Lots of tests ,blood tests , physicals etc. to make a long story short he had sent her to a specialist and we found out that mother had a sliver sized cancer growth on her bladder . If it were not for her seeing Doc . James at that time and requesting all those tests for her and sending her to the right people we would have lost mother shortly after Father had passed away . That was 17 years ago and if was not for Doc James we would have lost both parents with in one year ,mother is now 86 and is very fit and active ,thank you Doc James for saving mothers life, for checking her out like he did, if not we would have not had mother these past 17 years to be with and enjoy her company and time with us.
If you are a young female, do not see this doctor. He makes me feel uneasy consistently looking at my legs, and doesn’t make eye contact during my visit. I find myself rushing out as soon as I can. He’s a creepy old doctor and I do not recommend him. Bleak office, his secretaries are friendly, but I always see new ones working, maybe he creeps them out too?
