Growing up, Dr. James Sullivan used to watch the TV show MASH and dreamed of becoming a surgeon one day. “Although my mother was a nurse, watching that show definitely got me interested in medicine as well as the military,” he explains. “When I was in the service, I did start medical training as a surgeon, but later decided that working in emergency medicine was more suited to someone with a growing family. However, it was a great experience being a physician in the military and something that I will always be very proud of.”

At ReadyMED PLUS, Dr. Sullivan sees patients for a variety of issues large and small. He likes to work closely with his patients and quickly communicate everything they need to know. “I like to tell patients that this is what you have been diagnosed with, this is how we are going to treat it, and this is what you need to do after you leave. People want you to be attentive to their needs, and I think we do a good job of that at ReadyMED.”

One of the reasons that Dr. Sullivan likes working at ReadyMED PLUS so much is the breadth of care he can provide. “We can perform CT scans as well as ultrasounds and provide patients a very high level of care here,” he explains. “The technology we have gives us the ability to diagnose a lot of different problems and that can really make a difference for the patient.”

When he is not busy at ReadyMED, Dr. Sullivan enjoys listening to music (he is a big Bruce Springsteen fan) as well as reading, hiking, biking and gardening. Once his children are finished with their education, he and his wife look forward to traveling more.
