Never saw the man

when my family member was in the hospital a few times we were told he was her doctor. WE NEVER saw him. Never got to talk to him . We always talked to the social service person assigned to them. He would supposedly do rounds before visiting hours. After the member was discharged we saw papa joe at his aransas pass office LOVE papa joe. Then they opened an office here in corpus christi again and that was a rocky start . Finally papa joe comes here once a week and we are able to see him here.
