She seemed very knowledgeable and nice on my first visit. Thereafter, I was treated as if I was wasting her time. Having an adrenal gland deficiency and unable to take the medication, she was actually angry that I made an appointment. Watch out for their 24 hr cancellation policy. They are quick to sock you with a $30 late cancellation fee.

My experience with Dr. Kathy was really positive even though I was worried because of the reviews that I saw on here. She is a very knowledgeable doctor in her field. My appointment was at 10AM but I was told to arrive 30 minutes early to deal with my paperwork. I saw her at 1010AM. She was very kind and very educated on my condition. She tried to answer all my questions as best she could and even attempted to read results outside her scope of practice irrelevant to the reason for my initial vis

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.
