​“I enjoy being able to have a direct impact on patients’ lives, especially with something as significant as breast cancer.”

Provider Bio down arrow

Dr. James Kinsella is a radiologist who specializes in breast imaging. He chose to specialize in the diagnosis of breast cancer because of the impact this disease has upon the community.

“The patients I see are understandably nervous. My focus is not only on providing them with the answers they are looking for, but also the care and direction that they need,” he said.

“I try to put myself in their shoes and treat each patient as I would want my wife or mother treated,” he said. “I would certainly hope my patients would say that I cared, and that they felt confident they were receiving excellent care.”

Dr. Kinsella and his wife, Elissa, are both natives of Niagara, in far northeast Wisconsin. Both still have families in that area, which was a factor in their deciding to come to Marshfield Clinic Health System. They both also like the Eau Claire area, their home since 2012.

He received most of his schooling in Wisconsin, earning his medical degree at The Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. He ventured to Dallas, Texas for his radiology residency at Baylor University Medical Center, and then returned to Wisconsin for his fellowship in breast imaging at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison.

Dr. Kinsella enjoys family time and pastoring his local church. He and Elissa have 7 children, Devin, Jalyn, Mason, Ian, Elena, Daniel, and John.
