DR. JOEL M. PRESS IS AN OUTSTANDING PHYSIATRIST/PHYSICIAN

I had the extreme pleasure meeting in consultation with Dr. Press recently. I hold Dr. Press in very high regard. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, caring and a perfect gentleman to boot. He demonstrated a genuine interest in my medical issues, and conservative in his treatment plan. I could not have been more pleased in meeting with Dr. Press. He is truly a credit to H.S.S. Thank you Dr. Press. STUART R. NADELSON

Not a doctor to see

Dr. Joel Press is not doctor for anyone with an injury that can be taken care of outpatient. He is a researcher and manager, not meant to be a treating doctor. The visit is with his assistant 1st always. He will see the patent for 5 to 7 minutes. During the visit expect to be insulted, and not allowed to speak, anything you say dismissed and get shushed if you try to ask a question. Keep in mind you are seeing someone who is a manager and a researcher not someone to treat outpatient problems. You will get recommendations for extensive and expensive treatment to be done at specifically at RIC.

One Star

I had a not great experience with dr press. I waited over a month for my appointment. By the time I saw dr press my symptoms had decreased. After over a month of numbness and tingling in my leg and sciatica pain dr press was condescending and "scolded" me for using my insurance to see him for symptoms that had improved. I was originally diagnosed incorrectly took a second opinion and an actual MRI to get a correct diagnosis and proper treatment. Sometimes the "best" doctor is the exact opposite. My advice when it's your back or anything serious, get a second opinion.

My favorite doc!

I came to Dr. Press with chronic pain when it got really, really bad. I'm still seeing him today. We haven't been able to find a cure, but he hasn't given up. Next time I see him, he always has a new doctor for me, a new treatment or some type of test. The other doctors I've seen gave me a quick check-up, couldn't find what was wrong with me and they would send me away never to be seen again. This guy just keeps trying and trying. He's also hilarious and a great friend.
