"Dr James was just wonderful... From my first visit to my final release after 12 weeks of Cardiac Rehab. He and his staff were available 24 hours a day to answer questions both before and after surgery. Dr James was there every day of my hospital stay and was never rushed. He was my primary doctor for the first few weeks after my surgery. He is known as a meticulous surgeon who takes the prevention of post-operative infections extremely seriously. I am so thankful he was my cardiac surgeon!"

"I chose this surgeon especially because my husband had triple bypass surgery on him 5 years ago, and Dr. James did an excellent job with his surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone having any kind of open heart surgery. He also has a great team working with him. Dr. James bedside manner is excellent also. He answers all your questions and you never feel rushed. He treats you as if you are one of his family. "

"My family and I are sincerely grateful for giving us a second chance. Dr. James is an excellent doctor and human being, very competent and compassionate physician, great listener and blessed surgeon. He has the ability to speak with patients in a very calming yet professional manner. He takes time to go over every detail of the procedure, exceptionally thorough. I would highly recommend him and his team, they are on the cutting edge in the cardiac field. "

"I can recommend Dr. Timothy James unconditionally. Both pre- and post-operative care was incredible. He answered all of my questions and those of my family without hesitation. I had come to the hospital near death with valvular disease and left with a new lease on life.

I had little pain and have made a remarkable recovery. The nursing care and the rehab hospital he recommended helped the healing process as well. I now feel better than I have since I was a pre-adolescent -- and I am a senior citizen! With a grateful heart, thank you Dr. James! "
