Specialties

Dr. James T Dunn has the following 2 specialties

  • Trauma Surgery

    Trauma surgeons treat patients who come to emergency rooms and require surgery after any kind of accident. They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
    Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs. Because they treat patients in traumatic situations, they’re also typically skilled in offering some level of emotional support to help the patient cope with confusion and grief that may result from their accident.

Dr. Dunn has operated on me three times -- thyroid once and breast cancer twice. He is an outstanding surgeon and an outstanding human being. He has a calmness that he brings into the examination room and the surgery theater which he shares with his patients and the patients' family members.

Excellent Surgeon

Dr. Dunn performed an emergency appendectomy on me. He was so kind and reassuring, and rearranged his schedule to accommodate my surgery. For the surgery itself, he did an EXCELLENT job--minimal scarring and my recovery time was significantly less than expected. Dr. Dunn also did a great job of providing reassurance to my nervous husband. I highly recommend Dr. Dunn.

Don't like how you tell him what you feel and he just assumes what the issues could be instead of examining it and later finding out it by another dr there was an issue
