in Apollo Beach, FL |
On my first visit to Dr. Joshi, I found him to be very gentle and understanding. My visit lasted an hour and 20 minutes and he examined every joint imaginable. I was very happy with his demeanor. He ran several tests to find out exactly what was lurking in my body; tests never run before from any other rheumatologist. I wasn't happy with my previous rheumatologist and I'm glad I made the change.

Only accepts check or cash and no way to pay bill online. Let's get with the 21st century people. Now I received a letter stating they are withdrawing from professional attendance as my provider.

I have been going here for over 11 years and they are best! I totally recommend this office. I see Katrina and she is awesome!

I have finally found my Rheumy (1 yr-3 docs). Dr Joshi was recommend through a friend of a friend. She had great things to say about him, but not so great for the office staff. Things must have changed. The office staff was friendly, professional and provided overall great customer service. Dr Joshi is just amazing! He is patient, he listens, VERY knowledgeable, provides great pointers, VERY thorough and he ask the right questions. I'm happy!!!! (Rarely post a review for anyone)

I have been a patient of Dr. Joshi's for over 12 years. The staff is 100% professional and helpful. I have seen other Rheumatologist's where I have actually waited over an hour to see them, and the actual time with the doctor was less than 5 min. That is not the case here whether you see him or any of the other staff members (Katrina Kemp PA). They have helped me with my Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I would highly recommend them to anyone!!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Joshi's for approx. 10-11 years. He is not only a great physician he is also kind, caring and concerned that his patients are treated with respect and dignity. He's always shown me respect and makes you feel you are his only patient. Both he and Katrina give me their utmost attention. The office is also ran efficiently and extremely clean. I have so much respect and appreciate the staff and all they do.

Treatment is just ok. He is standoff-ish. His office staff is horrible
