Patient Reviews


"I can’t say enough about Dr. Joseph and his team at the surgery center. They are so efficient and take your fears away during your stay. I stayed overnight and the nurses were undeniably angels. They were so kind and helpful. They kept my pain levels manageable and kept me comfortable. If you have been putting off a joint replacement like I was don’t put it off any longer. It is something that the doctor and nurses and PT people can take you through seamlessly. Thank you Dr. Joseph and everyone that has touched my journey." - Mary Lamb

"*My husband lived in pain for years. After research, I chose Dr. Joseph and I thank God I did. My husband had both knees replaced. Now he lives with no pain. Before, I asked my Primary Care Physician if he knew Dr. Joseph and he told us yes, he was excellent doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Joseph and his staff. Very professional." - Kitty Petrocco
