James Heron, M.D.

Internal Medicine / Concierge Medicine

I believe any good doctor-patient relationship begins with listening and communication. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, I have the time I need to forge close relationships with my patients in a calm, highly personalized manner and act as their advocate, helping them navigate the increasingly complex healthcare system.

You are unique, and as such, your medical goals and needs are also unique. Together, we can discuss, plan and coordinate a wellness journey designed specifically for you. I recognize the importance of patients being active participants in their medical decisions. By bringing you a personalized healthcare approach, similar to
Concierge Medicine, we can work closely together to help you achieve the good health and peace of mind you deserve. I am a board-certified internal medicine physician with extensive experience treating chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep disorders with an emphasis on nutrition, fitness, preventive medicine and heart health.

My primary care practice serves patients in the central Palm Beach County area including Lake Worth, West Palm Beach, Green Acres, Atlantis, South Palm Beach, Manalapan, Hypoluxo, Palm Springs, Lake Clark Shores, Wellington and Boynton Beach. I am an attending physician at JFK Medical Center, and I firmly believe it is in the best interest of my patients to be treated by the physician who knows them best when hospitalized – that’s me!

 

I am an avid New England sports fan. I spend my free time with family and friends, exercising and trying to figure out what is the next best show to binge watch.
