Ratings for Dr. James Jarvis
Dr.Jarvis was extremely ill when he first saw my child. He stayed in the other side of the room and in a hospital setting he really should have been wearing a mask,he was that sick. He couldn't examine my child properly because of his illness. We were told it was a minor curve of the spine that would likely self correct. A few years later my child has developed more intense back pain. So back we went, X rays show more than a doubling in the angle of the scoliosis. This time he did examine but it literally was a minute! After waiting for more than 2hrs, Dr.Jarvis just said there wasn't much to do but scan again in a year. After the appointment,I am now wonder what type of scoliosis it is,are there any specific exercises? I told him about the pain my child complains of and he just looked at me empty. Other than seeing the scan to varify my child is suffering more and there is a cause,this doctor/appointment was unhelpful.
Dr. Jarvis performed a surgery on me January 23, 2012. The surgery was supposed to help cure some mild scoliosis in my back caused by a leg length difference . Dr. Jarvis's plan was to drill 4 holes in my Right Knee to stop the growth plate in hopes to stunt the growth on my right side, to allow my left side to catch up and hopefully sort out my scoliosis. It is now 2016, i have only had one follow up with Dr.Jarvis and that was while i was still in a cast with my recovery behind schedule. I am experiencing more pain/soreness in my back than i did than ( almost none before surgery) and now have had a bone chip floating around on the left side of my knee the last 4 years. I was good for a bit after the surgery but whatever is floating around in my knee ( im assuming a bonechip based on how it feels ) has been casing more pain now and is hindering my mobility. I had heard tremendous things about Dr.Jarvis before my surgery and would gladly change my review to being more positive if he can just inform me of what exactly is wrong. What's floating around in my knee and why is it there? If it was just part of the procedure why isnt there anything floating around where the other holes were drilled in? We drilled 4 holes into my growth plate on my right side to stunt the growth to attempt to allow my left side to catch up and straighten out my spine but i grew during the surgery time table and my lower back feels worse now than it did before? This surgery didnt help like it was supposed to and cannot find any way to contact Dr.Jarvis. I'd really like to talk to him and know why my knee is messed up and if he knows anyone that can fix the problem he started.

Dr. Jarvis is amazing! My daughter has a very challenging medical history, and he has been more than stellar in helping her. She spent 8 months in a full body cast last winter, and is facing another 4 months this coming winter. He is kind and compassionate, and very, very sweet. He is the reason she will walk when this is all done. What a blessing he is!
Dr. Jarvis has been a wonderful doctor to deal with. He is kind and has a wonderful way with children. We have been seeing him once a week for almost three months and have come to love his "off the wall" sense of humour. He has a way of putting everyone in the room at ease, including our 3 month old son. If you do need to see an pediatric orthopedic specialist, I can hands-down recommend this doctor.
