Dr. Joe is like having your friend come in and chat with you, he doesnt talk over your head or treat you like you are of lesser education. He explains your ailments in a cut and dry manner and allows you to have a hand in your treatment, he discusses with you what you think and what he thinks and you come to a conclusion. He is really great at answering messages and getting back with you too. AND HIS STAFF IS AWESOME.
