Yes good somewhat.
Patient | October 13, 2017
Very bad experience with this care provider. She is impatient, irresponsible, and does not care about her patient, at least to me. After she knew her mistake, she just simply said sorry without any feeling and asked me to schedule an appointment with another eye doctor for the next year visit. I definitely won't recommend her to anyone I know!
Patient | October 12, 2017
Excellent.
Patient | October 2, 2017
Knowing she is there to take care of my problems is a great relief. She is the BEST!
Patient | September 27, 2017
Doctor Joos is the most thorough doctor that I see out of all my doctors. Her treatment of my glaucoma is the most important issue I have in my life at this time. She is making sure that I am on the best treatment possible to insure that I maintain and do not loose my eye sight. For that I am very thankful.
