Shoulder replacement in May with continuing positive results, zero pain and increased mobility. Can't ask for much more than that. Dr. Joy is great!
Naperville, IL |
Dr. Joy was great in providing me recovery of a serious injury I sustained. Explained everything very well, took the time to answer my questions and concerns and was great in following up with me after my surgery. I would highly recommend him and will use him going forward.

Had a great surgery minimal scaring . great bed side manner,referred from several people
in Oak Lawn, IL |
Dr. Joy was one of the best doctors I have ever had. His skills and knowledge were second to none. I was having a difficult time getting into outside therapy sessions because of the V.A., but he kept on seeing me until my physical therapy was done.

I had surgery last November to repair my torn rotator cuff. I had heard from friends that it would be a painful and long recovery after the surgery. Thanks to the great care I received from Dr. Joy and his staff, my recovery was much easier. I would definitely recommend Dr. Joy!
in New Lenox, ILL |
I found Dr Joy to be very friendly and welcoming, which I always look for especially in a specialist. He did a thorough exam, reviewed my xrays explained the condition of my shoulder very well using displays and suggested different methods of treatment. After listening to my wife and I explain our current status with other surgeries (for my wife) needing to be done before my shoulder could be taken cars of we decided upon a steroid injection for some temporary relief. I will be back.
in Alsip, Illinois |
He is a very professional and caring. I would recommend him to my worse enemy if I had one.
in Lockport, IL |
Dr. Joy performed rotator cuff surgery on me twice. I was well on my way to healing when I suffered a fall, re-injuring the shoulder. Dr. Joy's care and compassion was unmatched. T Both surgeries went extremely well. Because of Dr. Joy's skill, I have made a full recovery. My 2nd surgery was on Dec. 31. Dr. Joy was not on call on New Year's day, but he called me himself to assure that I was doing well and to make sure there was nothing I needed. He is an outstanding, caring physician.
in Homer Glen, IL |
If you are looking for someone to perform surgery, Dr. Joy is one of the best. However, if you have chronic pain, not so much. I have had to apply for disability (which I spoke to him about on my last visit 3 - 4 months ago) because of chronic pain and swelling. The state was told that medical records can't be released, so I called. There's 1 person who copies the records and he comes in once a month. Message line has been full and you can't talk to the rest of the staff. REALLY? I'm disgusted.
Dr. Joy and his staff were sincerely kind and caring when working with my 91 year old Mother. They clearly explained things to her. Dr. Joy was very gentle and careful when examining her. His solution to her problem was perfect for her age and need. Our visit was a positive experience and I would recommend Dr. Joy.
