Our founder, Sherri James M.D.

"My mother had diabetes and heart disease and struggled with her health for many years. She eventually had both legs amputated and a stroke, finally succumbing to heart disease at the age of 61". From her mother's initial diagnosis, when Dr. James was in high school and throughout her mother's challenges, Dr. James said, "I felt disheartened and helpless that I couldn't do more for Mama." “After graduating from Pharmacy school, I became determined to find ways to help other people have healthier lives."

As a family doctor, Dr. James has more than 30 years of experience leading diverse teams. Her career spanned several sectors including Federally Qualified Community Health Centers, public health, rural medicine, occupational medicine, and opioid dependency. She earned a BS in Pharmacy from Florida A&M University, MD from University of Miami, and a Duke Integrative Medicine Institute's Professional Health Coaching certification. As a physician and wellness advocate, Dr. James strives to educate patients according to a “wellness model” rather than the traditional “sick model” of healthcare as we know it today. Her goal is to eliminate health disparities and make our communities healthier and wealthier. Her motto is:

Get Well, Be Well, Stay Well.

What is a Remote Discovery or Tele-Wellness visit?

A remote discovery visit is a 20 minute appointment that is focused on completion of a questionnaire and review of health concerns and goals with a healthcare provider. Reside over 50 miles from our practice? No problem. Busy schedule and can't break away? No problem! In addition to the remote discovery visit, we offer tele-wellness visits to help meet you where you are.

What is a Holistic Health Coach and how can they help me?
