A native north Texan, Dr. James Mackey is board certified in internal medicine and medical oncology. After graduating Summa Cum Laude from the University of Texas, Dr. Mackey completed his internship and residency at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas and received subspecialty training in medical oncology at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas.
Dr. Mackey knows each patient is an individual with unique needs and concerns. Before he prescribes a cancer treatment plan that is evidence-based and backed by clinical research, he builds a trusting relationship with his patients. He spends a great deal of time getting to know his patients, answering questions and learning about their lifestyle. Dr. Mackey believes in treating the whole patient, so in addition to chemotherapy or other medications, his treatment plan may include nutritional counseling, emotional support, and when requested and as appropriate, complementary or alternative medicine.
Dr. Mackey sees patients at Las Colinas Cancer Center, Southlake Oncology and Choice Cancer Care Carrollton.
Dr. Mackey is a weekend warrior, tackling home improvement projects on the 1930s-era house that he and his dog call home. He also enjoys restoring old cars, including the 1978 Impala in his garage.
