Patients Say:

“I would recommend Dr. James to anyone. She is the best doctor I have ever been to. She is knowledgeable and caring.”

“Dr. James is great! I love having her as my primary doctor, she’s awesome!”

Dr. James Says:

“Aside from my job as a doctor, I am on the board of a wonderful organization called Florence Crittenton in Charlotte, North Carolina. This organization provides comprehensive health, education and social services to at-risk adolescents, pregnant adolescents and young women who may be aging out of the foster care system in North Carolina. Being on this board over the past few years has allowed me to make positive changes in the community outside of my day-to-day medical practice. Hoping to leave footprints in the sands of life that will make our community stronger and healthier (mind, body and soul).”
