From simple to complex care, we improve lives

“I was inspired early on to become a physician by our family doctor. He was passionate about helping others and I admired how he was able to make a difference in people’s lives. Combined with my interest in the sciences, I knew that medicine was the right choice for me.

I received a great education here in Jackson and then had the opportunity to both serve my country and refine my skills as a surgeon in the United States Navy. There I learned so much about advanced surgical care, and I always knew I’d bring that expertise back to Jackson. Today, along with my colleagues, I get to help people every day with the minimally invasive surgical techniques I was trained in at the National Naval Hospital.”

The personal care that makes a difference

“Without a doubt, the best part of what I do is hearing a simple ‘thank you’ from a patient or family member – thanks for helping them and thanks for caring for them with kindness. Helping you overcome disease, getting you out of pain and improving your quality of life is what we do here, but doing it with real compassion and a personal touch is what makes our group so special. It’s a difference I’m confident you’ll appreciate, and it’s what makes me proud to be part of Central Surgical Associates.”

Dr. James R. Rooks is a Jackson native. In his free time, he enjoys life with his wife and four children, fishing, cycling and being active in his church and the Knights of Columbus.
