Dr. Joseph is the finest surgeon I have had and I speak after several different surgeries from Miami, West Palm Beach and Tampa. He provides a thorough evaluation, explains the procedure in detail and then performs exceptional surgery. I left the hospital the same day after having two fusions with his minimally invasive technique. His office staff particularly Nancy Parra, Medical Assistant and Cindy Elbe, Surgical Coordinator went above and beyond always making me feel as a valued patient. I highly recommend Dr. Joseph and his practice.

Dr. Thuy Nguyen of the Tampa office performed a Kyphoplasty on me. I had a bad fall and was in extreme pain from a compression fracture. Had been in three different hospital emergency rooms with no relief. St Joseph’s Hospital recommended Dr. Nguyen at Josephspine. It was an outpatient procedure and the pain was immediately relieved. This procedure and Dr. Nguyen come highly recommended by me. Manner by him and his staff was always professional and welcoming

It sure would be nice for their office staff to forward messages to the Dr due to severe pain from a patient who had severe scolious. 2 phone calls on 4/5/19 ignored. The followup from what i’ve seen is not a priority and slow. I’ve been with her since the surgery and i am fully aware of her pain and her frustration and failure to respond to her phone calls.

My experience at this office has been wonderful. Dr. Joseph has provided excellent care for me. I had been in pain for 15 years or more and had many forms of treatment for my back pain. Luckily, I found my way to Dr. Joseph. Before my first appointment I had x-rays taken. Less than 5 minutes into my appointment Dr. Joseph told me what was wrong and gave me options. We agreed to go with a surgical procedure. I have not had one minute of pain in the surgical site since I woke up from the surgery.

Dr. Joseph Jr save my life. I'm saying this, because I was in a car accident June/2018. Dr. Joseph found with 3D View "fracture of the Neck" and Spinal Issues, but through all of this I had to wear collar morning, noon, and night. So, on October 11,2018 I had the surgery Dr. Joseph at Memorial Hospital. My recovery time was wonderful through Dr. Joseph, so, far as medication I really did not have much needs, because through the hospital stay the staff was wonderful and if I needed Dr. Joseph.

Due to a bad fall last summer my mother in-law (89) developed severe spinal stenosis (lower back)...hospital and rehab.. 11 months on pain meds. She had to move in with us! Went to 3 doctors prior to Dr. Joseph, some wanted to do major surgery with a year recovery or others minimal invasive surgery not in a hospital & not covered by medicare. Dr. Joseph was covered & minimally invasive..3 months now she is doing amazing! Much better than we could have hoped! Back to normal! We are so happy! TKS!

I recently had a spinal fusion done at Joseph Spine. Within 5 days I was off all pain medication and walking 5 miles a day. I highly recommend Dr. Joseph and his staff. Everyone in the office and the hospital was very friendly and helpful.

Very good Doctor that seems to really care about the patient. He had to do several surgeries on my spine, basically taking out old hardware and rebuilding it. He knows me well and understands my medical needs. Highly recommend...

After an unexpected fall or accident, to accept that you need spine surgery can be very scary. Dr. Joseph and his team came highly recommended. I felt relaxed, educated, and prepared prior to my surgery. I was completely secure, knowing I was in such trustworty and capable hands. The surgery center staff treated me like family and work together like a well-oiled machine. The administrative staff is responsive and thorough. I am truly thankful and grateful for the whole experience.

I recommend Joseph Spine to anyone who has spine issues maxed out with medical treatment He and his staff have been very courteous, professional and attentive to my needs. I had an XLIF and PSF for the treatment of my scoliosis, stenosis, and other spine defects. I trust Dr. Joseph's decisions on my journey to recovery.

Dr Joseph was recommended by another one of my doctors and I couldn't have been happier with the surgery. I understood what was being done, why and what I needed to do afterwards. He took time to answer my list of questions I had prepared ahead of the appointment. He was kind and understanding. My surgery went great and he is my go-to doctor for spine and back issues. I am bringing in my son for scoliosis checks.

I want to thank Dr. Joseph and his staff for the kindness and professionalism that I received. I suffered many years with low back pain from scoliosis that wasn't getting better despite many procedures from the pain clinic and trips to the Neurosurgeon. The last visit it was recommended I see a spinal deformity surgeon. Dr. Joseph has been blessed with an amazing talent! My pain is gone, his bedside matter is amazing and he listens. Thank you so much for everything.

My pain management doctor recommended that I see Dr. Joseph about having a spinal cord stimulator inserted, and I am very glad that I did so. Even though his offices and surgery center are a long drive from my home, I know I made the right decision when I decided to have Dr. Joseph do my surgery. He is an expert on spinal cord surgery, and I had an excellent outcome. He is very caring and has knowledgeable and caring people working with him. I am happy to recommend him for spinal surgery.

If you're wondering what doctor you should choose for your back problem, you don't need to look any further. Dr. Joseph, without a doubt, should be your FIRST choice. I could hardly walk because of the pain. Dr. Joseph's accurate diagnosis of my problem and his quick scheduling for surgery had me back on my feet within 2 weeks, with minimum after-surgery discomfort. You may have to wait a bit to see him, but "the best is worth waiting for."
