Specialties

Dr. James E Klemis has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Heartless

My Mom had a scheduled appointment with Dr. Klemis. Seeing him for 2 years now. I was very disappointed that HE didn't even come into the exam room and see my Mom. He now has a nurse practioner, Pamela-nice lady, seeing his patient's Very, very disappointed with this. Especially here my Mom is scheduled to see the specialist, Dr. Klemis for her cardiac issues, pays the proper co-pay for the specialist and this is what they deliver???? What is wrong with you guys-looks and smells like greed to me! And I loved how you tried to duck me too while standing with your co-workers at the desk. You and this practice should be ashamed. Be professional, take the time and provide the level of service that the patient is paying for. Totally unacceptable-just out to line your pockets and no visible care for the patient-only for the CPT codes!!!

Skills of Staff are in the tank

After much a do to get an appointment, they never called to tell me, after taking off work, that the doctor would not be there. Waited till I was called, to the desk, like a cattle call, and then treated like a dead animal on the side of the road. The one sitting next to her in a white coat smerking and smacking gum should be in a back room somewhere. My Grandmother and Mother are turning over in their graves, as they were the best of the best RN's in Memphis for over 40 years, in very high positions and acted with respect and professionalism. This is totally dispickable.

Best of the Best

I definitely recommend Dr. Klemis. He has made a huge difference in my life. He has performed several stent procedures on me, and all have been very successful. His personality is relaxed, warm, friendly, and sincere. I simply can not say enough good things about him. I wouldn't want to be cared for, or operated on, by any other doctor. My family is also crazy about him. They loved the information he provided after my surgeries. Thank-you Dr. Klemis!!! You are the Best of the Best!!!!!!!
