Specialties

Dr. James J Boehmke Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Very neglegflul

I was sent to this dr. Because I was told by 2 other drs I had contracted hepatitis c as a child, before blood was checked. He was supposed to be the best I thought and did until recently! He did a whole lot of blood work, he did a colonoscopy even. He then told me I did not have hepatitis c, never did, and all the other drs that said I did must of got a false positive. So I was relieved and didn't give it another thought until I found out this month I do have it, it's in advanced stages, already attacked my liver pretty bad and damaging other organs like my KIDNEYS! If he would of treated me years ago I wouldn't be sitting here wondering how long I have left before I die! I do plan on a lawsuit against him for neglect. I wouldn't advise my worst enemy to see him!

Nice doctor, but billing practices are questionable

The doctor's visit was average. I waited about 30-40 minutes, while the actual time spent with the doctor was about 10-15 minutes. He was nice, but I learned very little. He did not diagnose me--this visit was just the "consultation" visit before a procedure that I need to have done. I found out that I would have to pay $1500 out of pocket, up-front before the office would even schedule the procedure. When I checked out, I was told that, because of my insurance, I did not have a copay for specialists & I must pay the bill in full that day, which I did-- yet I received a bill for 4x that amount in the mail. When I called his office to ask about it, they told me they had "estimated incorrectly" the cost of the office visit. I am very disappointed.
