There was an unfortunately long wait to schedule with him, but Joseph is a fantastic doctor. He is kind, polite and has an excellent bedside manner. He is also extremely intelligent -- he caught an illness that another doctor missed and probably saved my life!

Doctor was good but office staff very rude. I was ten minutes late and they refused to see me, had to wait 3 weeks for another appointment. I will never return!
