Focused on prevention.

May 19, 2020 12:21 PM

My visit was by phone. Dr. Joseph is very thorough.

May 18, 2020 8:00 PM

It vas a virtual visit due to Covid-19. Everything was good.

May 6, 2020 8:25 AM

When i went to see Dr. Joseph, since I had not been here before & just gotten out of the hospital & been diagnosed with MS, she took A LOT of time with me.

May 6, 2020 8:25 AM

This was a very good & helpful experience.

May 4, 2020 3:08 PM

Visit was over the phone and it went very well. Dr. Joseph and I have been together for a long time which helps to make a phone visit successful.

May 4, 2020 3:08 PM

Dr. Joseph is always thorough and takes the time to answer any questions. I am very comfortable discussing any issue with her.

April 27, 2020 3:31 PM

My appointment was scheduled by the office very efficiently and Dr Joseph called me on time and spent a lot of time with me going over almost every area of my health, she is very thorough and proactive with a caring and thoughtful manner, she is an excellent doctor that I feel lucky to find!

April 27, 2020 1:53 PM

Dr. Joseph was helpful and kind as always. Showed extra listening and patience as this was a telephone visit due to covid-19 considerations. We tell everyone how great Dr. Bincy is.

April 24, 2020 8:56 AM

We always have a very pleasant experience. Very knowledgeable and answers all our questions and concerns. Very good.

April 24, 2020 8:56 AM

Awesome experience.

April 23, 2020 8:25 AM

Almost always a good experience - but somewhat less satisfied since "visit" had to be by telephone due to current HEALTH STATUS OF OUR STATE & COUNTRY. Visit/phone call re: /POSSIBLE UTI. Also discussed current prescriptions.

April 23, 2020 8:25 AM

She listened - commented - asked questions re: /my health (suspected UTI) spent at least 1/2 hour on phone discussing my health & advanced age (80 yrs. old!) and any other health concerns - physical or mental.

April 21, 2020 6:16 AM

Dr. Bincy Joseph very good doctor.

April 20, 2020 9:13 AM

Dr. Joseph is very caring and easy to talk to about any health issue. I am thankful that she is my doctor.

April 20, 2020 9:09 AM

Dr. Bincy Joseph is one of the best, best dr. I come in my life time and I am 78 years old right now.

April 17, 2020 9:33 AM

Dr. Joseph is very thorough, caring, and always makes me feel better.

April 4, 2020 10:33 AM

overall a good experience with dr. Joseph. she is very knowledgeable and calm.

April 4, 2020 10:33 AM

after getting the ordered blood work the office was supposed to call me back to discuss and review the doctors orders. well we kept miss each other's call. when I was finally able the reach one of the doctor's assistants, they were RUDE. I'm not sure if it is stress due to the pandemic but I called in a pleasant manner. I can name drop but instead of causing trouble I'd rather they just understand the meaning of working with people. the interpersonal skills especially now, need to be better.

April 4, 2020 12:06 AM

excellent t and thorough as always

April 4, 2020 12:06 AM

always makes me feel that even the smallest question is important and not silly. knows me very well and makes sure to stay up to date with all of my varying specialties.

April 1, 2020 8:28 PM

I always have a wonderful experience with Dr. Joseph. She is a good listener & I feel comfortable talking to her about any medical issue.

March 31, 2020 12:18 PM

Tele-visit - she called me late. I sent in paperwork of updates and things to discuss days prior via portal that she didnt have in hand when she called. She spends to much time on her computer - felt like she hadn't reviewed my file before she called. I had issues to discuss when I was abruptly sent to nurse to set up next appointment. 90% of appointment is spent reviewing and updating. Starting to feel like she needs to hit a quota for tests and labs ordered. Lab orders are sent "somewhere" - no orders given to me so I can go to a lab of choice. Had to call to find out who had my lab orders.

March 31, 2020 12:18 PM

I leave visits with doctor feeling rushed and incomplete. I feel like by the time I remind her of the past visits we are out of time and new issues cannot be discussed. She gives me anxiety - and I can feel my blood pressure rising when Im in her office. I am considering finding a new doctor.

March 30, 2020 2:34 PM

Dr. Joseph met with me over phone for routine 6 month visit (COVID era). She conducted the visit just as if I was in office and was thorough. Great job of juggling process challenges at the beginning of the COVID distancing time. I felt I had full attention and care I needed. Also applaud Advocate for reaching out 4 days before appointment to arrange phone visit vs in-hous.

March 30, 2020 2:34 PM

GOOD

March 28, 2020 8:58 AM

She is a nice doctor.She was a little bit rushing to finish my appointment , and she wasn't interesting to talk about few things that I asked.

March 28, 2020 7:51 AM

1. facility needs more doctors; very difficult to get an appointment

March 28, 2020 7:17 AM

very good

March 21, 2020 8:09 AM

good

March 21, 2020 8:09 AM

takes to long to get an appointment

March 18, 2020 6:56 AM

As always, I found very thorough and pleasant in discussing I any issues I was having.

March 18, 2020 6:56 AM

She personally called a few days later to explain results of labs and x-ray and prescribe treatment.

March 16, 2020 6:39 PM

Its hard to get an appointment with your own doctor. When the office calls they leave a message to call back and when I do no one seems to know what is going on. They send another message to the Dr or nurse and if i Miss the phone call its the same thing all over again.Its very frustrating

March 16, 2020 2:33 PM

I trust Dr.Joseph has my best interests in mind when she offers her care. I appreciate her and hope she and her staff take extra care and stay healthy through this coronavirus virus ordeal.

March 12, 2020 9:54 AM

One of your best.

March 3, 2020 2:24 PM

She always listens very carefully. I feel she tries to provide me with the best care.

March 3, 2020 2:24 PM

February 6, 2020 12:28 PM

I have been a patient of this office for many, many years! I continue to go to this office because they have always treated me with the utmost respect. Many times they have helped me to be seen sooner than next apt. They have are always willing to help.

February 6, 2020 12:28 PM

January 10, 2020 9:55 PM

Dr Bincy was very professional. She recommended more care on my part as far as taking all my mediations as prescribed.

January 10, 2020 9:55 PM

Dr Bincy always communicates her concerns about my health problems and always offers me great advice to stay on track.

January 8, 2020 6:21 AM

I have been seeing Dr. Joseph for over 10 yrs. and find her to be one of the friendliest and concerned doctors I've ever had.

January 1, 2020 11:06 AM

I trust my Dr. entirely.

December 30, 2019 8:22 PM

Excellent

December 30, 2019 8:22 PM

Dr. Joseph is a great listener and provides many suggestions. I am very confident with the service she provides.

December 30, 2019 7:44 PM

I really like dr Joseph just hate how long it takes to be able to get into see her

December 30, 2019 7:05 PM

very good. as expected

December 28, 2019 1:55 PM

All very good. Dr Joseph is a fine family doctor.

December 28, 2019 1:55 PM

My only concern does not involve my doctor, but rather the long waiting period to see her when I am ill. A month is not helpful.

December 25, 2019 12:23 PM

Very good overall experience. Dr. Joseph is attentive and kind, takes time without being hurried, and is detailed.

December 25, 2019 12:23 PM

Overall, friendly, warm, and professional. Holistic in her approach to medical care. Sees me as a person and gives due respect and attention to the whole person.

December 23, 2019 3:13 PM

She seems to be a very caring, knowledgeable doctor.

December 23, 2019 3:08 PM

Dr Joseph was very thorough. This was my first visit. She went over my medical history going back several decades.

December 23, 2019 3:08 PM

The staff were very friendly and helpful. I left with several names of doctors to check in with on different issues. I'm doing that.

December 23, 2019 1:42 PM

my only complaint has to do with the nurse who first brought me into the exam room. I was one minute past my appointment time of 9:20 when I checked in. I was seated and in the waiting areas by 9:26. I was brought into the exam room by the nurse who proceeded to lecture me about being "15 minutes late". I told her it was 9 minutes past the appointment time. She looked at her watch and said."well 10". Then she went on to tel me that if I expected the doctor to be able to fit me in I needed to come in regularly (my last physical was 2.5 years ago but I've been a patient of Dr. Joseph's for over 10 years). I explained I had not been ill so therefore did not come in. I found this whole exchange upsetting. I came into see the doctor because I have been suffering from severe emotional stress causing anxiety and depression. To be treated in this manner upon arrival at my health care provider was distressing and certainly not helpful to my current state of mind. This individual would benefit from some sensitivity training in patient interactions.

December 23, 2019 1:42 PM

Dr. Joseph continues to be one of the best physicians i have seen. I trust her expertise and her guidance. she never makes me feel rushed and listens with empathy and seeks to find answers. It is obvious she truly cares about her patients.

December 23, 2019 1:41 PM

Dr. Joseph is an empathetic caring physician. Both my wife and I are glad she is our PCP.

December 16, 2019 2:05 PM

Satisfied with Dr. Joseph's performance.

December 14, 2019 9:54 AM

Appreciate the time you spent explaining my new Medicare benefits and what I can do to improve my health.

December 10, 2019 7:21 PM

I'm very happy with Dr Joseph my whole family see her. she's wonderful.

November 26, 2019 9:53 AM

I really like Dr. Joseph, she's pretty understanding about my weight issues.

November 26, 2019 9:53 AM

The Lab area needs more seating.

November 26, 2019 8:56 AM

Dr Joseph provides the very best care and I have remarked to her that I actually enjoy my visits She understands that I intend to partner with her and she consults with me on all decisions I would recommend her highly and value her a great deal Please see that she is esteemed Thank you
