I want to share what an amazing doctor Dr. James was when I went to the emergency room for pain that ended up being an infected kidney stone. After being in the ER for almost 12 hours he came in and talked with me, comforted me, thoroughly explained things to me and really showed genuine interest in who I am and my well being. I was feeling scared, vulnerable and not knowing what was really going on before he showed up. After he left I felt calm and informed. Once I was admitted he called me multiple times in my room to check in and see how I was doing or inform me of test results he had looked at. Each time he was calm, friendly, kind and he made things easy to understand. He gave me his number and told me to call him if I had any questions at all, even once I went home from the hospital. To have such a scary and painful thing happe, I am so grateful I had Dr. James by my side. ~Jan M.
As men approach middle age, there is always the concern of the possibility of an elevated PSA test as well as a prostate biopsy, and possible treatment, if the biopsy is positive. This concern is further exacerbated by the anxiety and fear that goes with a positive biopsy.My professional career was teaching for the Dept. of Defense in Okinawa and mainland Japan for 31 years. As I approached my late 50's, I was feeling like things weren't quite right, yet I was not really able to put my finger on what was happening. I drove over to the clinic on Yokota Air Base and shared my concerns with the military doctor. His in-depth analysis of my concerns amounted to one question. "How old are you?" I told him I was 57 and he said he was also 57...He told me it was just my age and encouraged me to relax.I left the following weekend for my summer break then returned and requested one thing and that was a PSA test. I was given the test and it was elevated to a level that was considered abnormal, so I requested a biopsy at the Tokyo University Hospital Dept. of Urology. The biopsy was given and all protocols were met, but they were old school and zero pain medication was given. My wife Yuko translated through the process. The biopsy results were negative.Following the first biopsy, my PSA danced around all over the place and 3 years later, with the advice of Yokosuka Naval Hospital Urology Dept., I was given another biopsy. It was the most painful of the two and I felt like I had pulled into a truck stop for an overhaul and they completed the task with the wrong tools.After this second biopsy, I retired from the Dept. of Defense and returned to California with orders to find a good urologist and have my conditioned monitored. This left me with the appropriate direction to take, but I was again tracking with the anxiety and fear that I had before.After my household items from Japan arrived, I concentrated on settling in and establishing a routine with my new life. I again began my search for a competent Urologist. Lucky for me, after having had two previous biopsies, I knew what to look for. I needed someone competent, thorough, current with approaches available, someone that was compassionate, and finally someone who would add clarity and a clear path to proceed as we continued to monitor my PSA levels. I was led, through a series of circumstances, to Dr. Robert James and the St. Joseph Urology Dept. We met, and I immediately felt like it was a perfect Doctor- patient match. He had me read "Surviving Prostate Cancer," which was a page turner. Chapters had short and long versions depending on how deep the reader wanted to go. After monitoring my PSA for a few months, and through the course of my treatment, we decided that another biopsy would be needed, which could happen at the end of the summer (was Aug 30th).I was called several times before the procedure and given the appropriate meds in advance. The technician assistant made me feel super comfortable and the biopsy went without a glitch and with minimal discomfort.In closing, aging isn't easy, but with the correct information and collaboration between doctor and patient, it can be a complimentary process to all concerned. I highly recommend Dr. Robert James and the St. Joseph Urology Clinic to anyone needing a urologist. The man is absolutely amazing!!!Steven Thomas

Dr. James is an excellent surgeon and is very methodical. When I met him I had endured 12 years of BPH. He kindly explained to me different procedures to alivianate my symptoms. Finally, we decided for a procedure called TURP. Thanks God he performed an intervention 45 days ago and I have been feeling superb since then. I would highly recommend anyone who suffers from similar effects to call his Office and talk openly with him about your problem. He would be very thorough, I am sure.Thank you Robert, I am very grateful to you. I will see you in 6 months. A.A.
Dr. James is a truly competent and caring physician. He has worked with me on trying to solve my incontinence and UTI issues His office staff are all kind and helpful when I call and when I arrive for my appointments. He is someone that I would and have recommended to others with urinary problems. Thanks to Dr. James my quality of life has improved.
Dr. James sees my dad for prostate cancer, he is genuinely interested in dad's quality of life, monitor's him and treats him as needed. We saw two Urologists prior to him, I thank God for Dr. James, he is polite, knowledgeable, throrough, a hard find for an Urologist.
