About

Bio

I graduated from the New York college of Podiatric medicine in 1991. I attended my residency through the Foot Clinics of New York, rotating through St. Michaels Hospital of Newark NJ, and Bergan Pines Hospital of Ridgewood NJ. After my residency I became an attending physician with the NY Department of corrections, later owning and directing a few successful practices. I became board certified by the American board of Podiatric medicine in 1996, a Fellow of the American college of podiatric orthopedics in 1996 , and was appointed as a professor to the College of New Rochelle in NY, and Long Island university in NY, and City University of NY, and Pace University in NY. Today Dr. James is the owner and directing physician of Advance Podiatric medicine in Red Bank NJ.

Specialties
