Couldn't be more satisfied!
Saved my life...literally! Saw him on a Tuesday for pneumonia, where he found it was a critical infection. Even though Doctor's Hospital was full because of the Covid crisis, I was on the operating table the next day for a bronchoscopy. He is very personable and I have complete confidence in his expertise!

I've known and worked with Dr. Joseph for about 20 years. He's a caring and extremely knowledgeable physician. I've been seeing him as a patient for 6 months and am amazed at his knowledge regarding my condition and his expert treatment and care plan. I enjoy meeting his staff in the office and everyone is always helpful and I always feel I'm the only patient although the office is teaming with patients and everyone is busy as a bee! I'm very grateful that the CSRA has such a wonderful physician for all pulmonary patients!

Having been a healthcare professional for many years, I had a numerous questions when I saw Dr. Joseph for a pulmonary consult. He answered my questions patiently and in detail. He also educated me in areas of concern, and of positive potential, that were not on my radar to initiate a discussion around. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking a pulmonary consult.

Dr Joseph, I'm sure is quite capable in his field, however I've concluded that his office is poorly run. Last year when I saw him I waited well over 2 hours before I finally saw him. I was furious. Today, after an hour and a half, I walked out and never did see him. I will never be back.

I have tried both phone numbers for over an hour today trying to get an appointment on Dec. 19th, 2019, between a little after 2, till about 3:20 constantly. It rings about 12 to 15 times then starts over again. Someone is ignoring the phone calls or Dr. Joseph needs to hire some responsible people. Also, this is not the first time this has happened, but I thought that might have been problems with the telephone company. And I can’t believe they have only two lines.

I was referred due to low dose CT chest scans. I was promptly called and asked if I could come in the next day! I di of course. I was treated as sweetly in theoffice as I was on the phone. Which was pretty darn great! Dr. Joseph is personalable, friendly, and professional all at the same time.He discussed what he felt we needed to do , canged one of my meds, he was concerned about the cost, asked me how my insurance covered meds, etc..He was considedrate ofallll aspects of what may affect the lpatient. I feel confident, assured and comfortwble with Dr. Joseph, is staff and his treatmentand assessment.

The office staff is apathetic. The wait times keep getting worse, currently I've been waiting 50 minutes. The staff gets rude if you ask for an eta. He's a good doctor, but the staff and wait times are making me want to leave.
