Patient Comments (1)
Huntington, WV |
Dr. Joy seemed extremely competent and caring. She considered very carefully how to reconstruct my nose after Mohs surgery, and took plenty of time doing it. Although she was quite focused during the surgery, she kept the atmosphere light (important, since one is awake during Mohs surgery!) She explained every step of the process. I probably could have used more explanation of the recovery process, but she was open to questions - I just didn't know what to ask. I highly recommend her.
