I have been a patient of Dr. Maxwell's for years. He is one of those people in life that you feel better for having the privilege to know him. He and his staff have treated me with kindness and compassion over the years. I'm appalled by the comments on here. He is very conservative and he's not going to cut you open if you don't need it! And to those who really think he's arrogant, you obviously don't understand humor. He's one of the most humble people I've ever met.
Dr James Maxwell might have practiced medicine for 34 years. He might have all the degrees he needs. But in my opinion Dr Maxwell is not a dr I would recommend. I tried for three weeks to get a call back from Dr Maxwell. Some days I was calling three times. My husband even went there in person hoping to talk to him. Nothing, no call back. no response. We were trying to get results for my mother - in-law. She had an x-ray done of her whole body. She has been suffering going on a year now. My mother-in-law was getting frustrated. her pain was getting worse. Each time I called he wasn't in the office. I felt bad for the secretaries because of the amount of times I tried to get a call back. We didn't know what we should do. Finally I called and asked to make an apt to have my mother in law see the dr. I was put on hold longer than I thought since they knew I had been trying to get a hold of the Dr. The apt was made. The response the Dr gave when asked why he didn't return any of the phone calls was HE WAS BUSY. Really you are a professional. That is not the answer I thought we would get from some one that has been in this field. Uncalled for. The test was done on Nov 19.The apt at the office was Dec 5. Then he says well if it was something serious I would have called. So if someone is in a great deal of pain, or wants answers they don't get a call back because it isn't serious. My advise Dr Maxwell call your patients back in a timing fashion. They deserve it. They pay your bills
