I was a patient of Dr. Joachim for many years before moving out of the area.He is the best doctor I have ever seen.He is kind and caring and very easy to talk to.He will spend hours with you if needed.Dr. Joachim is also extremely knowlegable.He was able to diagnose me with a condition I didn't even realise I had symptoms of. He will also listen and take you serious if you have any ideas about different types of treatment options.I would recomend Dr.Joachim to anyone,he truly is a gem!
I am a nurse and have been going to dr. j for over ten years. my sister had never been able to find that special dr-pt relationship until i convinced her to meet dr. joachim. She credits him with literally saving her life. my 26 year old daughter was also a patient all through her high school years and needless to say we were all aghast at these surely unfounded allegations. I am heartsick at the thought of finding another doctor. it is certainly rare to find a MD like dr j who is so intelligent, thorough, kind and compassionate. any time spent waiting in the office was worth it. dr joachim gave everyone as much time as they needed and LISTENED to you. i hope you take a look at this dr joachim. you feel like family and we are all praying for you. keep the faith.
This man is the most concerned and most accurate physician I have ever encountered. He thinks outside the box when necessary, takes your file home to study when deemed necessary, will go the length of researching a solution, takes the time to explain and make sure you comprehend the response and works with you as a partner in your healthcare. This is partially why you may have a longer than average wait in the reception area as he does not skimp on time in the examining room! Barring the fact that he has human faults he is rather miraculous in his efforts for each and every patient. We met him in the ER in 1995 and have been advocates of the pure medical care he provides ever since. We have recommended him to many friends and relatives who are for the most part still his patients unless the moved out of state.
MY HUSBAND AND MYSELF HAVE BEEN SEEING DR JOACHIM FOR MORE THAN 15 YEARS. HE HAS SAVED BOTH OUR LIVES MORE THAN ONCE. IF YOU WERE IN HIS WAITING ROOM YOU WOULD HEAR THE SAME THING AGAIN AND AGAIN FROM OTHER PATIENTS. HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN POFESSIONAL IN HIS DEALINGS WITH US AND WITH THE MANY FRIENDS (CHURCH AND OTHERS)WE HAVE BROUGHT TO HIM. I SAY LIAR TO WHOMEVER IS FALSLEY ACCUSING THIS GOOD CHRISTIAN DOCTOR.
