Dr. V besides being excellent at what he does in his practice , he is beyond just an excellent diagnostician . I had seen 2 cardiologists that could not find why my heart was not functioning properly. I explained my symptoms to Dr. V and poof he told me i had (sick sinus syndrome) i needed a pacemaker he was right on.

Staff and my doctor are always nice and curteous and always accommodating, sometimes the wait is over most time average. I would recommend to anyone needing a pain management dr. Joyce.

He spends more time talking to you about his problems, troubles with the DEA, and how his hands are tied. Spent half the appointment throwing overdose statistics around. He took away half of my meds, even those for psychiatric care AND two major components of my pain plan. Stock formula no matter what your condition. No more than one kind even if you're in chronic crippling pain. No deviation from 3 pills/day per patient. Good luck with getting any sympathy from him about your pain.

I really like the doctor and how he tries to find ways to relieve my pain. I know that in some cases his hands are tied and he cannot do anything more than what he is doing, but he tries.
