What People Say About Dr. Joseph Mesa, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Mesa was the second doctor I saw for my shoulder and knee. He came highly recommended by several health professionals. He is very knowledgeable, he spends time listening to your issues and does not run away from a complicated issue. He has stayed with me trying to figure out some additional issues that arose after I had one surgery and has continued to help me get back to work and my active lifestyle. I would recommend Dr. Mesa to my friends and family with knee or shoulder problems.

I would recommend Dr. Mesa. He explains things clearly. He goes over your X-rays and MRIs and explains them clearly so you understand what you're looking at. He removed damaged meniscus from my knee and I healed from the procedure well. He is always available for appointments when needed.

Horrible! Doesn't care about patient education! Will be walking out the door answering your question ! Horrible bedside manner! I barely saw him for 5 mins and waited over 45 mins in waiting room past my apt time! You have to ask him for treatments (i.e. Drain fluid, give cortisone shot) and he is reluctant Bc he doesn't care about patient's pain level. He is arrogant, and jerk and needs to retire. He is a terrible Doctor! Doesn't give a crap about his patients. He rushes out the door!

Although my family has seen 3 different doctors in this group, and we have had a good medical experience, we find out 2 years after my wife's last vist that the outside company doing the billing made errors. Now they want us to pay them $25 for an item not billed 2 years ago. Although this is not over the top a problem, they informed us that these types of events can be billed up to 7 years after the mistake is found which now tells me if they are coming after me for $25 out of thousands.
