      I was one of Dr Joseph patient, had my colonoscopy done, ordered a copy to be send to my primary Doctor,this was about two years now, it was never send to my doctor, two weeks ago called the office,which I keep getting the answering service some time getting a message stating that the number is not in service,finally got true, ask to have a copy send to my doctor, had a visit to my doctor, and the copy of my result was not send, this office is the worst office I have ever been to.

      Office staff is terrible. Seldom answer the phone, and when they do, they are rude. Have been waiting one week for office staff to complete paperwork for authorization on a prescription. As of today, 5-16-16, nothing has been done, so my wife has been without her meds for a week.....and the wait continues. Stay away.....

      My husbend had a few visits with Dr Joseph, he was professional and trustworthy.He did the necessary exams and explained the results clearly.I felt like he was taking a very good care of my husband. We recommend him

      He doesn't even deserve one star. He missed diagnosed me several times in the past years. He thought I was just makeing up the pain and told me I was having a medication reaction even though I told him I wasn't on any medications. I went to Sarasota Memorial HP and saw a different GI Doctor who was able to diagnose me immediately. I had a gallstone stuck in my bile duct causing me to have extreme pain and had an ERCP to remove it. Now I'm feeling great. I highly recommend Dr. Charles Loewe

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
