I have seen Dr. Joo three times over the last several years for thyroid nodules. I have had nothing but a positive experience with her. She is thorough and prepared. She actually reviews my chart, history and tests before coming into the exam room to see me. I am tired of doctors who don't review charts. Furthermore, I've never had a problem talking to Dr Joo. She is willing to answer all my questions and has always been pleasant.

Nice at first, then it goes downhill. When I needed her she was very unfriendly. She did a 360 on me I left her office never to return. Beware of this doctor

DR Joo is a very good endocrinologist. She manages my insulin and watches my blood results. If she hadn't done a good job, we wouldn't know that my liver numbers were over three times what they were supposed to be. I will say that she said her staff told me how much insulin to use, and i'm pretty sure they never told me that. I'm also trying the get an Insulin Pump, and have researched several different companies, but felt like she was pushing MedTronics on me.

Difficult to reach and staff does not return calls promptly if at all.
