My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My philosophy in regard to the practice of medicine is centered around developing a collaborative, trusting relationship with all of my patients. This is essential to insure the proper diagnosis and implementation of a treatment plan that is most likely to result in wellness. I believe in the power of preventive care and the early detection of disease. Positive, healthy habits and accountability by both physician and patient are powerful predictors of good outcomes.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Hochwalt

Dr. Hochwalt was key to getting me the help I needed for Rheumatoid Arthritis, even though the disease never showed up on blood tests. I was having serious trouble walking, sitting, sleeping and using stairs and he suspected my issue and was able to quickly get me in to see a rheumatologist that he trusted. I am now back to my normal active self and enjoying life. Dr. Hochwalt does a great job… See more

It was about 3 days after my surgery to remove kidney stones, when I found myself in terrible pain. it was a Saturday morning and my wife drove me to the ER. They found out I had a kidney infection. The ER personnel was great, but the group that did my surgery was not (the surgeon was from my old neighborhood and that is why I choose that group). I was left in the ER for more than 8 hours as… See more

I have received care from my primary care physician for over 35 years.

Dr. Hochwalt has treated me since 1992. He has always projected empathy, patience and understanding. I have had may medical issues over the years. One of those medical issues was thyroid cancer which Dr. Hochwalt found during an annual physical. I value my relationship with him and know that I can count on him to provide me with the best care possible.

from Scott in OH February 12, 2024 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

With God's blessing, I have never faced a devastating medical diagnosis nor I have ever gone through a demanding treatment regime that successfully reversed a bleak prognosis to a miraculous cure. For those fellow MDVIP members that have had such experiences, I extended my wholehearted and fullest admiration and… See more
