Dr. Joseph was very attentive and kind. This was my first time to see him but he will be my attending endocrinologist from now on. He listens and I didn't feel hurried or rushed. I felt like I was important.

This review is about Heidi Frey, nurse practitioner for Dr. Joseph. She does not prescribe any medications for me, (I am an insulin dependent diabetic). She has never examined my feet, inquired about eye checkups, or given me diabetic testing supplies. She does, however, take every opportunity to yell at me about my blood sugar control. I have been seeing her for the last 11 months. It is time to move on and hire a doctor that actually cares and does their job.

Unwilling to prescribe husband medication that had been working well for him. Also would not prescribe a generic for another so we are being forced to pay over $200 a month when a generic would be under $10. Also pretty arrogant and it is a very long wait to get in, even for established patients.

Very first visit he was pushing for surgery or radiation. It was me who suggested we try to get my levels evened out with medication. Since I started the medication it hasn't improved my #'s and makes symptoms worse. He shrugs and says it shouldn't without following up or suggesting any other meds. STILL pushes for radiation or surgery. He must get a kick back. For me, seeing Dr Joseph is useless and waste of time. I have quit going to his office and will be driving to Lexington instead.

Dr. Joseph diagnosed my Thyroid cancer on my first visit. I may have waited 20 mins in lobby. At my first visit he did an examination of my neck, then he did an ultrasound and a biopsy. Called me back with result, and had me an appt with a surgeon in Lexington all within two weeks. He is soft spoken, but knowledgeable about all the conditions he treats patients for. He has always answered any question I have had with an informed answer.

I was referred to Dr. Joseph for thyroid problem, and I wasted my time going. Waited over an hour in the lobby and I may have been in the exam room with the doctor for 15-20 mins, including an ultrasound. Dr. Joseph could not explain why I was having issues and when I asked a few questions he just shrugged his shoulders because he didn't have an answer. It was a wasted trip altogether and I still don't know what's causing my problems.
