Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Joseph "I believe every patient deserves the best possible outcome. That's why I obtained the highest possible training for my specialty, going over and beyond what is required of a general orthopaedist. Our staff also goes the extra mile so that you spend more time with me, and less time waiting for me. This allows me to customize a treatment plan that fits the way you want to live, work and play. The best medicine is practiced when doctor and patient connect with each other in a meaningful way."

Patient Comments (6)

Dr Joseph is fantastic, down to earth, explains things so you understand exactly, listens and very skilled and knowledgeable. His PA’s Annie and Matt were wonderful, along with his RN Kim. From the staff at the front desk to the staff checking you out, everyone was kind, polite and helpful.

We had an outstanding experience after a thumb injury on the ski slopes. Meticulous attention, a careful exam, and an openness to extensively discuss options for treatment. As a physician myself, I was extremely satisfied with our care. The staff was equally welcoming and helpful.

Horrible Surgeon and Staff
Was this helpful? thumbs up icon optionthumbs down icon option
