Dr. Jones and his team is the best I ever worked with. Extremely caring, explaining in detail what needs to be done with excellent surgery skills. He answers any question, and if you need anything, you can write on his message, and he will answer very quickly with the right answer. He did performed 3 hernias in one surgery. After the surgery, to my surprise, I did not need heavy anti pain medicine. I commend and recommend Dr. Jones, and his team, including members of his office to anybody in need of a surgery.

My primary care doctor Robert DeBruin referred me to Dr. Jones for gallbladder removal. That fact alone gave me confidence even before my consultation. After meeting Dr. Jones I knew I was literally in great hands. He explained the procedure and what to expect afterwards. The first 4 days weren’t fun but by day 5 it was as though someone flipped a switch and I began to feel almost good as new! Incisions are tiny and eventually I expect will be unnoticeable. I’m 3 weeks post surgery and doing well. Thank you, Dr. Jones for making me feel better!!! I highly recommend him...10 stars.??????

I've had two laparoscopic procedures performed in recent months by Dr Jones and can highly recommend him. Both procedures went very well with minimal recovery time. He listens to concerns, answers questions, and doesn't rush through appointments. Folsom is lucky to have such a capable surgeon.

My husband had abdominal surgery with a stoma for cancer 2 yrs. ago at Stanford in Palo Alto. Afterwards, he developed a very large hernia. Dr. Joshua Jones is a general surgeon and head of surgery at Mercy Folsom. He examined my husband and quickly told us he knew he could do the hernia surgery. He has the best bedside manner of any doctor I've ever seen. We highly recommend him.

Great surgeon with an attentive bedside manner. He did my bilateral hernia surgery and I was pain-free and back to work within a few days. I've had 5 surgeries since 2011 and he ranks with the best of all the surgeons I've used. Highly recommend!

He's a fantastic surgeon with a wonderful bedside manner. He'll answer any questions day or night. Very patient gentleman. I had a cholecystectomy Thursday 5/4/17 and Dr. Jones has done everything to support my recovery. The surgery went well, thank God! I would highly recommend Dr. Jones, matter of fact, my husband is thinking if he ever needs surgery in the future, he'lol call on Dr. Jones.

Very pleasant and caring disposition. Dr. Jones performed my preventative masectomy and was very flexible with schedule to accommodate the plastic surgeon for my immediate reconstruction. Dr. jones was very informative, responsive and professional. I would highly recommend him.

Terrible, terrible staff. I was diagnosed with cancer and every time I needed them to send a referral for a biopsy or to a radiologist, they could not seem to follow through. I had to make dozens of calls just to get the biopsy request to the right location. I finally told them to forget the radiologist referral. As I am writing this, I am not sure if I will ever receive further treatment. If I had left it to them, I would probably still have a cancer tumor.

I had to make an urgent appointment after an ER visit to get my gallbladder removed. I went to the ER on Sunday, called the office Monday, and they fit me into their schedule on Tuesday. Dr. Jones is one of the friendliest, most down to earth people I have ever met. He made sure I understood what the problem was and how he was going to fix it. And he even scheduled me for next-day surgery! (So I wouldn't have to live with gallstones until January!) I would definitely recommend Dr. Jones!! :)

Dr. Jones is an educated, well trained, kind, caring physician. I am a retired physician so I have been around physicians for many years. Any person that chooses Dr. Jones to be their doctor has made a wise choice! I have not been to his office yet. He was the physician on call when I came into the ER!
