Patient Comments (2)

I had an emergency surgery done with Dr. Joo about three months ago following a trauma. I had never had surgery before but he was very calm and explained to my parents and I what was going on and what would happen next. He saved my life. He came to my room to check on me just about every day...more

He is the sweetest man and a great Dr. He did a procedure on me 8-24-16. He came in and explained everything he did and answered my questions. He was very busy that day. He could have just gone on his way with other patients. He took the time for me.
