ROCKFORD, Illinois – SwedishAmerican is pleased to welcome Dr. Tiphani James as a new Doctor of Podiatric Medicine at our Stateline Clinic (4282 E. Rockton Road, Roscoe).

A native of Evans, Georgia, Dr. James received her medical degree from Des Moines University College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery in Des Moines, Iowa. She completed her residency at OSF St. Anthony Medical Center in Rockford and serves on the American Board of Podiatric Medicine. She has also been recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association, American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, and the Illinois Podiatric Medical Association.

Dr. James’ specific medical interests include foot care, diabetes management, fitness and exercise, health and wellness and sports medicine.

Medicine combined my drive for knowledge and love of people, so I recognized at an early age that medicine was the right career choice for me,” Dr. James said. “I exposed myself to many different aspects of healthcare such as nurse assisting, EMT, and first response teams. Every encounter solidified my choice to pursue medicine.

“I plan to treat the whole individual by listening to their grievances and understanding their own approach to care. With this, I will be able to treat effectively by working as a partner and advocate to his or her healthcare.”
