Dr Joyce is a kind man. He listens to and treats you not your symptoms. . He spends the amount of time needed and always makes me feel comfortable. I’ve been a patient of his for over ten years and have to say his office staff are not as helpful as before. I was cancelled twice short notice for conferences he was attending and then had to wait approx. 2 months for next available appointment - that is unacceptable.

This man is very matter of fact and ready to attack. He had read about my case before my first appointment and knew what he was walking into. Hes not a smoke blower, and he reached that comfort level with me immediately. I'm completely confident that Dr. Joyce will find out what is wrong with me, where so many other doctors over a period of 8 years have dropped the ball. He knows his stuff. Period.

I see multiple doctors and Dr. Joyce is one of my favorite doctors. I really enjoy my visits. He listens and takes time with each patient. He really gets into his profession and I'm so glad I'm a patient of his. Highly recommend Dr. Joyce.

I scheduled my first appointment to see Dr Joyce and had to wait approximately 8 weeks which wasn't an issue until the day before my appointment his office calls to tell me I need to re-schedule my appointment and wait another 8 weeks to see the doctor. That is not a professional in my opinion. Does he really care about his patients? With want just happened to me I would have to say no. I was able to make an appointment with another specialist sooner then my re-scheduled appointment with him

Terrible bedside manner. Walking in was so very painful for me; i was tearful. He told me very coldly to stop the tears so we can get this done. Once was 2 minutes late for one visit (my last) - driving 25 miles to his office. Receptionist said he may not see me but she'd check. I walked out. He's a cold unsympathetic man. I'm an RN and know how he could have/should have handled a tearful patient who was suffering terribly. I never went back.

I will tell everyone I meet to avoid this man at all cost. How dare he scream at my mother to the point of bawling while she has a life threatening disease. She has been going to him for 10 years but has a horrible nurse who won't let her speak to him and is evil to her. Because my mother asked that this woman not assist her anymore and attempted to contact the office manager for over a month, this poor excuse for a doctor decided to scream at her instead of find out what had happened. Ignorant.

He is THE BEST He listens compassionate honest. I have been a patient of his for 11 yrs and he saved my life by finding the diagnosis, helping me to understand my diseases, to understand the best treatments, finding other caring specialists needed in my care and treatment. I am not sure I could trust another Rheumatologist.
