dr altizer headshotDr. James Altizer grew up in Stanton, Virginia. His father was a manager at a natural gas utility company and his mother was a nurse. Ever since Dr. Altizer was 5 years old he knew he wanted to be a doctor.

Dr. Altizer graduated from Davidson College in 1981 and immediately entered the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond. After receiving his MD degree in 1985, he traveled to Augusta, GA to complete a 3-year internship and residency in Internal Medicine. To pay back his naval scholarship to medical school Dr. Altizer entered the US Navy and worked as an Internist at the Navy hospital in Beaufort, SC and subsequently as teaching faculty at Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego, CA. He also served in the first Gulf War during Desert Storm and received a total of 5 decorations prior to leaving the US Navy in 1992.

Dr. Altizer spent 11 years as a board-certified Internist. During his 17 years as a Phlebologist (vein disease specialist) he became Board Certified in Phlebology. He is also doubly credentialed in ultrasound. Being skilled at surgical and injection techniques from his work with vein disease, Dr. Altizer quickly learned stem cell harvesting techniques and in late 2015 decided to dedicate the remainder of his career to stem cell and regenerative therapies. He received expert training from recognized leaders in the regenerative medicine field, training on bone marrow aspiration with Duke University affiliated physicians. In 2017, he was asked to be guest faculty at The Orthobiologics Institute (TOBI) Annual Meeting in Las Vegas where he taught the liposuction workshop for adipose tissue harvesting.

Since he started treating patients with stem cell therapy at his old practice in January of 2016, he has performed thousands of regenerative medicine injections, making him by far the most experienced and well known medical doctor performing stem cell and regenerative therapies in the Carolinas. He has appeared countless times on the TV program Charlotte Today, usually taking with him grateful patients who love telling their success stories. Dr. Altizer loves research and is constantly looking for new ways to improve his craft and provide a higher quality of care for his patients.

His greatest strengths are his integrity, ethics, and honesty. If he does not feel like you are a good candidate for a procedure, he will tell you. There is no question Dr. Altizer has become the face of stem cell and regenerative therapies in the Carolinas. In January of 2020, he opened his new stem cell clinic, NeoGenix, in south Charlotte that focuses entirely on regenerative medicine. In April of 2023, NeoGenix opened a second location in the Lake Norman area of Charlotte. In addition to stem cell and regenerative therapies, Dr. Altizer also performs Independent Medical Exams (IMEs) and impairment ratings.

Dr. Altizer currently lives in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte. He has 2 children and spends much of his time with his longtime girlfriend. One of Dr. Altizer’s biggest hobbies is collecting antique medical equipment, much of which is currently displayed at the NeoGenix Ballantyne clinic. Dr. Altizer also loves riding motorcycles. He currently has 4 of them so if you are looking for him on a sunny Charlotte afternoon, that is mostly likely where you will find him.
