James Krider, M.D.

General Practice – Primary Care Physician (PCP)

What excites me about being a doctor is knowing that I can make a difference in my patient’s life and their health. I became interested in becoming a doctor while doing research in college at a VA Hospital. I was Inspired by the VA physicians that were taking care of the people who served our country. If I wasn’t a doctor, I’d like to be an astronaut or computer programmer. I am also interested in scuba diving, race cars, and being a pilot. Aside from being a doctor, I am a restaurant owner. Blue is my favorite color, its passionate and is the color of my eyes. My message to patients is, “eat well, Love life, enjoy yourself!”

I believe patients can empower themselves through effective knowledge of their health and understanding clearly the steps to take control. I incorporate fitness, and preventive health, into my practice by educating my patients regarding chronic diseases. A change in lifestyles always works! What I learn from my patients is the melody of life and the changes in life teach us patience.
