I can not say enough about how happy I am having Dr. Irions and his staff looking after my health care.
I would like to connect more w/the doctor and feel like he truly cares for me. Do not at this moment.
I have never had a Dr who was so belligerent and arrogant to a patient. I have lived in my body for 44 years, I think I would know what I need to care for it better than someone that has seen me less than an hour total. He had his answers predetermined before he entered the room and had no desire to listen to me and what I had to say. I wouldn't advise taking a manikin to see this "Dr."
I am so very lucky I found Doctor Irions. He was recommended to me by the head of the Babtist hospital emergency room.
For the quick solution suggested, this doctor tried hard to spend enough time. He seems mostly a choleric personality, and I was pleasantly surprised with his behavior & listening.
First time to visit the office or doctor very pleased
he removed me from my anxiety medicine without telling me and refused to prescribe it again. I told him I had been on it for over 20 yrs and did not abuse it but needed it at times. I told him I had a brother and sister with cancer and other issues I was dealing with and yet he still took me off. However he did put me back on it after this visit when I argued with him. I felt I should have been warned and not just refused and that I should have been weaned from it and not just taken away. If I abused it I could understand, I am on a very low dosage but rely on it when I feel anxiety building up
Great Staff, and M.D. All very knowledgeable and personsible.
*Dr. Irion listens has good bedside manners, and seems genuinely concerned about me.
Doc is a Kind and Knowledgeable Man!
Really like *Dr. Irion. He is very good dr.
I told him I had a list of concerns to go over with him and he responded with "you better make it quick."
Dr. was running late - Rushed.
Dr. Irions took the time to contact another provider I see to discuss with her the changes he made to the medications I take.
Already made appt for spouse.
Dr. Irion is not go to be there anymore. I really liked him. He has a great personality. I would rather that he stayed.
I highly recommend the doctor, but not there very much.
Quick and efficient visit as usual!
Couldn't have been a better visit!
Doctor was very professional and gave me very good questions and advice.
I am very satisfied with Dr. Irion. He has a great bedside manner, and always listens.
I needed follow up EKG from hospital stay. First visit to office and he had reviewed my records and knew my condition before my visit even tho first visit scheduled same day as I requested to become a patient.
By far this is one of the best health care provider that I have had. I highly recommend Dr. Irion and the staff at his office. I am also glad that they are associated with Wake Forrest as they provide the very best care in the area and I also appreciate their personnel and doctors.
Excellent doc and staff.

I was extremely impressed by *Dr. Irion and his staff.
Great asset to the practice.
This was a last minute appointment when I injured myself my normal provider had no openigs and I saw this one who could and felt very comfortable and happy with my care.
I really liked Dr. Irions. He was very nice and friendly. This was my first visit with him and the first medical doctor I have seen in this area. I was driving back to Hickory to see my doctor. I liked the way that Dr. Irions handle himself, spent a lot of time with me, listened to all my concerns, asked questions, and even called me after my appointment to give futher instructions on the medication he stated me on. I was able to see my test results that evening (really liked that) and I received a letter from his office with his recommendations 2 days after my appointment. As a RN, I can honsetly say he impressed me greatly, he was excellent and I am planning on moving my husband to his practice.
*Dr. James Irion is not my doctor but I wish I could see him all the time. He's so funny.
Great teamwork and great people.
The whole staff was excellent and *Dr. Irion was very through.
