James L. Comazzi, M.D., F.A.C.C

Dr. Comazzi graduated from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in California sixth in his medical school class. He is a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society, the American Heart Association, the American Medical Association, the California Medical Association, and the Tuolumne County Medical Society. He was elected a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology in 1985.

In 1983 he established the first cardiology services in Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties and has enjoyed treating tens of thousands of patients in the past two decades. According to Dr. Comazzi, "Most precious are the friendships and loyalties that have resulted from my 20 years of commitment to providing great cardiology care and the patient trust and relationships that have resulted.

I have been here long enough to treat not only grandparents and parents, but their children. My patients are so concerned about my health and welfare that they regularly ask about my life, my family and even my parents. And I can't help but feel the same about them. Who wouldn't want to go 'beyond the call of duty' for these great patients!"

His special medical interests include pacemaker implantation and follow-up, prevention of heart disease with lifestyle modifications, and reversal of heart disease by referring to the latest proven approaches combining invasive procedures, medicines, vitamins and spiritual meditation.

Dr. Comazzi, his wife Bonnie (a BSN nurse) and their two children enjoy and support the recreational and cultural activities of our county. An active sponsor of regional theater, music festivals and many charities, Dr. Comazzi has enjoyed singing tenor in the Columbia College Community Chorus and Sonora Men's Chorus. He enjoys SCUBA diving, filming underwater video, snow and water skiing, gardening and backpacking.
