Dr. James Conkle DNP, FNP-C

Family Medicine

Why did you become a healthcare provider?

I am from a family with a deep history of healthcare. I enjoy helping individuals attain their highest level of health.

What attracted you to a community health center for your practice? 

Navigating the healthcare system can be challenging for anyone. Helping members of any community realize all the options available to them is important to reach that highest level of health.

What do you enjoy or find most fulfilling about caring for patients? 

Teaching them about their health and helping them to reach their goals.

Do you have hobbies or a way you like to spend your time away from work?

I enjoy playing tennis and pickleball.

If you could be anything else, what would you want to be?

I would continue in the service industry. I could see myself as a veterinarian. Taking care of animals would be my other career choice.

Do you have a favorite book, movie or TV show? 

I can read through a great horror story in 1-2 nights. Stephen King, Clive Barker and Dean Koontz are among my favorites.
