Dr. Bush-Joseph was the third doctor to fix my left ACL. After two failed surgeries I found Dr. Bush-Joseph. He took the time to explain his procedure using my quad which I believe is a fairly new procedure. He was patient, answered all my (and my wife's) questions. His team did a wonderful job and I finally hafter 20 years have a solid knee.

Dr Bush-Joseph is absolutely wonderful. Twice he has taken care of my teenage son who had injuries to both quads from hockey. Prior to seeing Dr Bush-Joseph he was not getting better. As soon as he was seen at RUSH by Dr Bush-Joseph he was diagnosed and set on a treatment plan to 100 percent recovery. On top of that he is so kind and willing to explain things. I won’t take him anywhere else.

So very much appreciate Dr. Bush-Joseph’s professionalism, and the time he took to evaluate and analyze my issue. Was able to avoid surgery by following his course of action. Amazingly went from crutches to rehabbing in less than a week - and complete recovery is within sight. Lives up to every bit of his exceptional reputation. Thank you!!!

I experienced a major tear in my right shoulder rotator cuff. After stupidly waiting 3 months to figure this out, my personal doctor recommended Dr Bush Jospeh. From the start I experienced excellent, on time exams culminating in a tough repair surgery and an extended recovery. Great surgeon (it worked) and a A+ team who took me through the process of recovery. Very satisfied. Now, I just can't trip while hiking and all is good.

I’m a nurse with 30 + years of healthcare experience while my specialization is not in orthopedics, I can tell from the physical exam, review of MRI results, degree of explanation, to the physical therapy orders, Dr. Bush knows what he’s doing.
