Ratings for Dr. James Linton
i knew this doctor personally, even lived with him for a while. Jim was a very nice man and very caring about his patients, espically the younger ones . When my baby girl got a diaper rash he had it cleared up in a few hours. The staff i must agree was horrible, but in any case after his surgeries he shut down his office. So you people got your wish. are you happy now ? He treated my husband for strep and myself for a cold and we were'nt sick after two days each. He treated everyone like family, and always spoke of his patients at the office. He was a great doctor and he was an even better friend.
Dr James Linton treats you as if you are wasting his time instead of paying him for it.Naturally after wasting yours while withering away in the waiting room. His waiting room was dirty and his staff wasn't any better. The staff also gossips about patients and although the window is closed everything can be heard. I have never encountered a more reluctant medical staff nor been privvy to the amount of sighs and visible irritation at the time of a check in. I know everyone has bad days but I went 3 times and it was the same treatment each time. I cannot believe Doctors Offices such as this are even allowed to stay in practice.
I had chosen Dr. Linton for my PCP. After spending the night in the ER for a migraine headache I was told to follow up with PCP if not better by the next morning. After being up all night I called Dr. Linton's office to be seen for a migraine. I was told Dr. Linton does not treat headaches. I was not about to go back to the ER and could not see another doctor as he was my PCP. That to me is rediculous!!! He was supposed to be my family doctor. Don't Family Medicine doctor's treat everything??? So I have to find another PCP and call Insurance Co to change. He also sees my 6 year old who came down with terrible diarrea and vomiting and when I called to get him an appointment they could not fit him in for 4 days. I Do NOT recommend this doctor at ALL - We will both be finding a new doctor and I will never recommend him to anyone.
