James McGinty, MD

  • General Surgery
  • Bariatric Surgery

My patients are the most important component of our health care team. I take time to listen to their problems and expectations, formulate a plan with them, and educate them about how that plan will affect them and their families. As a surgeon, it is a great privilege to have a patient place their trust in you. To the best of my ability, I approach a patient's care with expert knowledge, humility and integrity.
