Unlike other Doctors; he doesn't book you at a certain time....have his secretary put you in a room and make you wait another 20. If you are booked for 2:30.....HE will call you in at 2:30 or 2:35 at the latest; and immediately go into the room together....and you have half an hour to discuss things......and he's down to earth kinda doctor. being young, I don't really have any health problems, but he still looks after me.....Hope he will be my doctor for a very long time .....though I do find it odd that he has cookies in the waiting room

Dr James is a caring and motivating doctor. He takes care of his health and inspires his patients. He is friendly and not greedy. That is why he spends sufficient time with his patients. Office is at good location and parking in the back is free and very convenient. The treats you find at his office are brought to him by his patients but he shares with his visitors. Dr James is a good doctor.

Doctors profit from illness. That's why Dr.James always makes sure he has diabetes inducing treats in his waiting room. Go ahead, take a bite!

I am so very grateful for the good care Dr. James gives my family. Since being his patient, my spouse's diabetes controlled for the first time. He listens to our needs and responds effectively. If a specialist's opinion is needed, he refers us to the best specialists. At times, I may have to wait in the office, but I believe that is only because he is giving the patient before me the same excellent level of care - patients are not rushed out the door. He is thoughtful, caring, compassionate and has a sense of humour. The staff are helpful and friendly and the office environment is pleasant. This medical practice is the model of what a family practice should be.

If ever a family GP demonstrated why family doctors should be paid as specialists are, Dr. James is the proof. He has been my doctor for about 7 years, and throughout shown superb clinical skills, care, and understanding dealing with my complex chronic illness. He has researched the many drugs I have been and am on, reads assorted lab reports carefully, figures things out, suggests changes I can do that will improve my general health. I think if more people had a family doctor like him, there would be fewer demands on hospitals, and fewer serious, acute illnesses. He is a great doctor.
