you can call at any time of day during 9 am - 5 pm and only get the answering service; messages left are NOT returned. new patient appts. 4 weeks from 1st contact and then can't through with questions.

Arrogant is the best word to describe him. One visit was enough. The staff has a very flat affect.
Port Charlotte, FL |
The office never answers the phone or follows up.

Dr. Joseph treated my father in Fawcett hospital for internal bleeding. When we went to the follow up visit he was not thorough. He was suggesting a second procedure for a totally different problem. We asked if we needed to have the internal bleeding under control first and then he changed course and ordered more tests related to the bleeding. He said he couldn't do the second procedure until bleeding was under control. Nursing/front desk was also very unpleasant.

Dr. Joseph has treated both my husband and me. In both cases displayed genuine concern for each of our medical needs, excellent knowledge of diagnostic and treatment options as well as accurate professional recommendations to restore our health.

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
