actually he is not fantastic...i went in there telling him i was scared to have my twins natural and asked him what was the chances that one would come vaginally and the other c-section and he said oh no hunny that won't happen....sure enough my first son came vaginally after 2 hours of pushing and had no strength for second son so he made me lay there for 3 hours...thats right 3 hours....before he took my other son by c-section because i had no strength....and speaking of the no scars thats not my story i have a scar from my belly button to top of vag...and i had to have a drain tube ....which also scarred horribly...also almost forgot he left the room while my first son had crowned just so he could go take a nap..and thats with the nurse telling him shes ready ...shes ready right now....i hoped to have a wonderful birth of my twins and that was not what i got at all....and he knew he messed up because after their birth i never seen the man again and i was in hospital for 5 days and when i went to have my staples taken out and he avoided me... because believe me i had plenty of questions to ask that man....oh also in my charts he did not even document that i had a vaginal delivery for my first son ...so they did not even check my stitches the entire time i was there and i didnt know any better or to ask becuase it was my first childbirth
Your right. He f-in sucks. I complained to him about excessive swelling and he looked at me like I was stupid and told me not to worry because it was normal. Come to find out I had congestive heart failure due to my pregnancy and almost died. I would not recommend him to my dog.

Dr. James is a wonderful dr.
He's always on emergency call so there might be times that He will be paged for an Emergency c-section or something.
Honestly I put all my faith in him.. He knows what he's talking about...and Stays cool in heated situations... Honey if you Choose him you will not be disappointed. I never had a bit of probably with the staff! like I keep rambling..His staff..and him...In my opinion went way out of their way to make every appointment comfortable and smooth...
I love this man very much.. They are all good people

Dr. James was alright. But his office staff are complete bitches. Especially Toni who sits at the front window. She is totally rude and treats patients like they are bothering her. I ran in there one day in panic because my blood sugar had dropped and my blood pressure was really high and i felt like I was going to pass out - and she made me walk all the way across the hospital and through the parking lot to get my checkbook to pay a $15 copay before they would allow me to see the doctor. I was 7 months pregnant and extremely upset and worried. She told me if I didn't go get my checkbook that she would not allow me to see my doctor! And when I told her I was too sick to walk all that way, she told me to just go to the e.r. then! She was horrible. Dr. James was alright, nothing great but I had minimal complaints about him. But I, personally, will never EVER go there again solely due to his office staff. They'll have plenty of welfare cases with medical cards to keep his practice healthy. They treat patients with actual jobs and insurance like SHIT!

Dr. James and his staff were wonderul to me during my whole pregnancy! I have never had problems with any of his staff, I find them all to be very competent and very compassionate. Maybe you are the one with the chip on your shoulder.
very pleased

I thought he was very nice durring appointments for the most part. Even when in a hurry he'd answer all my questions. I tried him when Gorden left. However, he was a no show when I was admitted for induction. They had to call and ask what he wanted done to me that evening and the next morning. The nurses were getting worried and tried to break my water with the pressure of their hands since he was a no show. They promised me that afternoon that they'd flag him down on the way to a c section to come see me and break my water. A nurse (they were all wonderful by the way) caught him on the way to it.. about 40 minutes late. I had a few tell me he was always late to everything. It was the first time I saw him. He was as usual nice and informative though very rushed. Next time i saw him I was pushing. Hair was visible and he had to go into the hall for something. The nurse kept saying she was ready. My husband went into the hall to get him and he was on a computer. The nurse had my husband push the instruments to her incase because she didnt think it could wait. He came in the room and told me to stop pushing while the head was out about an inch, threw on gloves and wiped the area. Told me I could continue and the baby came. We honestly didnt need him. He gave us a congrats and left about five minutes later. All in all very nice and professional and absent. A very sweet nurse who works for him checked on me in the morning for a min. The next day a standoffish woman named Mori came in the room for about 45 seconds (for which Ive recieved a $400 bill). I was there 4 days and spent maybe..15-20 min with him. My third kid with three different doctors and Ive never had one so absent.

I had my first baby in Jan and Dr James was my Dr. I loved him as my Dr. His practice is busy i will admit that but he is great none the less. I went to a dr visit at 35 weeks and he checked me and bc my blood pressure could not be controlled they rushed me up to delivery where I ended up having an emergency c-section. I was flipping out but Dr James assured me that he would take care of me and my baby and he did just that. my lil girl is perfect. When or if i have baby #2 he will for sure be my dr again.

Dr. James delivered both of my children. He actually saved both of their lives and mine. I won't go into detail but if it wasnt for Dr. James then me and my babies woudnt be here! Can't forget God either...many prayers were answered!!!

He delivered both my children. I wouldn't dare go to anyone else. He isn't like most doctors that try and rush you out of the office or hospital. Dr. James took all my concerns into consideration and addressed them all. In my opinion he is an excellent doctor.

He moved his office to a bigger place, and it's just as crowded as the first. They over-schedule, and take on too many patients. It's all about the money! I felt rushed at almost every visit. I had some complications and I had to tell him about it all because I guess he didn't have time to look at my chart before he came in the room!

I loved Dr.James & still do. He delievered both my boys & if I decide to have another one that is where I am going. Yes he is a very busy doctor but he is a damn good one. For the people saying he was late delivering their child did you ever stop to think that maybe he was delivering another baby at the time. I mean serioursly come on he is there to deliver babies & not just yours. When I was there having my first one he had already delievered 8 other babies that day & still had more to go might I add that was just at 6pm. When my second one was born he was just as great as the first. We all have different opioions. Some of you could have changed doctors but you choose to stay so that is your alls fault. You didn't have to keep him as a doctor.

When I was 8 cm dialated, he left the hospital and went home to take a nap. Needless to say, I was ready to go in no time at all. My baby's head was popping out of me and he didn't get there for about 2 hours. My baby girls mouth and nose was blue from bruising for days from being down in the birth canal so long.
