I am very glad to have DR. James West as my primary physician! He and his staff is very competent and take care of my health issues. James helped me a lot on my issues with side effects of blood pressure medications.
Allison Smith is always very friendly and helpful on getting started with my visits. At my last visit she told me how long it takes here to get from her home in Ellijay to… See more

Dr. James West is a one in a million physician that truly cares about his patients. He has been our primary doctor since 1993. We moved from Georgia to North Carolina 20 years ago and travel to Atlanta for our doctor! Without his care and knowledge, my wife may not have been here to celebrate our 35th anniversary in July. He truly listens and knows his patients. How do you thank someone… See more

I've lost count of how long it has been since first becoming a patient of Dr. West, but it is approaching 40 years. He is such a caring and competent doctor whose love of medicine and helping people is obvious each time we meet. I especially appreciate how much time he spends discussing any issue, figuring out the best treatment, while considering any concerns that I may have. I have… See more

I Love my doctor. You can ask him anything and he will give you a straight answer. I went from having to do 140 shots of insulin my first month to being diet controlled today. Thanks Dr West. I have been with his father before. Long 30 years now. Thanks!!

Dr. West and his team are wonderful - I just feel like they're always in my corner, from the time I needed help most (breast cancer treatment) to helping me stay healthy and look forward to retirement now. I have complete trust that Dr. West knows me well and looks out for my health very proactively - including the needed nudges. He's so kind and there is a very positive culture… See more

Dr. West is really thoughtful and caring doctor. He is astute in diagnosis, he is accessible, excellent office and nursing staff, thorough with examinations and diagnosis of any illnesses. I have a lot of experience with doctors (35 years in the pharmaceutical business); and Dr. West exemplifies what I want and expect from a family internal medicine doctor for my wife and I. We are very… See more
