I have seen Dr. Bush-Joseph on several occasions for knee and shoulder injuries. He is one of the most compassionate caring and highly regarded doctors in his field, which is why I initially went to went to him. He is very friendly he listens and he is not quick to do surgery without considering other options first. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Charles Bush-Joseph. I would most definitely highly recommend him. His physician assistant is equally skilled and compassionate. Additionally the staff is very kind and the environment is just beautiful and comfortable.

Went to have a shot on my knee, Dr Bush-Joseph said it may not be your best option, introduced me to reconstructive surgeon on the spot, I now have surgery scheduled to repair damage. I really appreciate the honest, proactive response to my issue. While I wish it were better news, I really appreciate Kate the quick resolution offered and getting me immediately to the correct person to fix.

Dr Bush-Joseph (CBJ) is a fantastic doctor. From the moment you meet him you feel like you have been long time friends. He takes the time to answer any and all questions. I saw him twice before my current injury regarding issues with my knee and he did not recommend surgery and provided PT referral instead. It is rare to find a surgeon who is not eager to cut. He is a skilled doctor and surrounds himself by excellent support staff. I couldn’t be happier with the whole experience.

He is an unbelievably good doc and his bedside manner is incredible. He always took time to talk to me, answer questions, and reassure me prior to and after my ACL reconstruction. It was one of the easiest surgeries I've ever had!

I had ACL surgery with Dr. Bush-Joseph and it went so smoothly. He has great bedside manner and had me up and moving quickly. I had two ACL surgeries years ago with a different doctor and the medical advancements are impressive (not his doing obviously) and his positivity and support was really helpful.

This was my second hamstring avulsion surgery with Dr. Bush-Joseph. He came highly recommended for my first surgery back in 2015 and when my second hamstring tore in 2019 there was no other surgeon I wanted to see. CBJ takes you through your surgery, delivers best-in-class service, & adds a little humor to your experience which makes things a little lighter when you’re in severe pain. His entire team from Lisa (EA) to Travis (PA) are attentive, thoughtful, and incredibly accommodating. CBJ & his team are truly best-in-class!
