His staff was friendly yet professional. They requested insurance cards and my health history. Soon, Dr Joseph met me in the examination room, introduced himself, and asked me the questions I expected. He listened to every answer. After he made a preliminary exam, he suggested a colonoscopy. A day or so later, his office clerk called to confirm the appointment and to tell me the amount I would have to pay since I had not met my Medicare deductible. When I went for the exam, everyone was bright and friendly, tensions were eased, and the team escorted me through the procedure. Dr. Joseph told me what was going to happen, made sure my questions were answered, and did his work. Seemingly soon thereafter, I was in a recovery area, attended by a caring nurse. Later, Dr. Joseph met me for a quick visit to check our my status and to assure me that all went well. We made an appointment for the follow-up exam to review the results of some biopsies being evaluated. Super!

When Dr. Joseph took over for the retiring doctor he was good and took the time to explain. 2 years later he doesn't spend as much time and the office seems mixed up as they messed up my appointment. There were long hold on phone times and no return calls without me getting after them. Then I see he settled a Malpractice lawsuit for quarter of a million dollars 12/12/17. I won't be going back. Settlement : 12/27/2017Hide details Amount or Range: $250,000.00

I have just spent 3 months working with Dr Joseph. I've had extensive test & xrays. He has been by my side the entire time. There's no words to express my appreciation for his kindest, patience, & caring. I feel very lucky to know this fantastic human being. Maryann, vero beach.??

He accepted my mother as a patient. She had Medicaid. He then never saw her again. She suffered and she died. Then his office (with Katta at the time) heard of her passing and called me to tell me it wasn't their fault! If you have Medicaid you may want to think twice as this man did not place any value on my mother due to her having Medicaid. He only had time for the higher reimbursing insurance.

FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR. This doctor only cares about MONEY!!! Never saw the doctor before or after a upper or lower GI. The minute I walked in, the staff kept asking for money, even though my procedure post-phoned. After procedure a lady shoved a paper in my hand and said get this medicine. Did not give me a chance to ask why. I was pushed out of the room to accommodate the next victim in the assembly line. Work in health care and know a bad doc when I see one. Hole in the wall office Ft Pierce.

Unnecessary long wait after procedure for final meeting with doctor - then he spent about 30 seconds - ignored accompanying family member. Had to stop him leaving to ask a question about post-procedure protocol. In summary, regardless of his medical skill, his personal interaction with patients is not very good.

I would not recommend this Dr. to anyone. I have only seen him once. He has another doctor working with him. Office staff does not return telephone calls nor do they follow up with getting test results. I had to get my own results. When I questioned the office staff why they did not get my blood work results they stated no one answered the phone. It took me approximately 10 mins. to contact my insurance company, they e:mailed the results which I sent to office. Want$$ before you see Dr.
