People keep saying how great Dr. Joy is... And I don't understand what's so great about a doctor who: 1) it's impossible to get in as a new patient, 2) once you get in, you have to wait 3-4 months for your first appointment and 3) once you get a appointment, she cancels them without proper prior notice. She doesn't care about how mild or severe a patients condition may be.., she still cancels the appointments even if the patient has bee waiting 7 weeks for that appointment. She has no respect or consideration for her patients. Again, I am trying to figure out what's so great about her?
I have been a little phobic of medicine. I had some bad experience with doctors who didn't care if they hurt you during exams and one who misdiagnosed a serious problem. Dr. Joy got me past all that. She is equally caring and competent -- a nice combination. She doesn't condescend to me, but explains things in detail realizing I can understand. She has been spot on again and again. She explains her decisions to me and takes my experience of my own body seriously.
