I am 42 years old. Joy was the best care I've ever received from a doctor in my life. She was patient, listened intently to any concerns I had, offered me amazing advice, didn't make me feel like she was judging me at any point. She was so gracious about offering things I needed to get done but not making me feel like I had to do it right away or I was going to get in trouble or she would refuse to care for me related to my actual issue that I was there for. She never shoved anything down my throat, but she covered a variety of things that I've needed to deal with for a number of years with grace and kindness. I have already recommended her to three people. I cannot speak her praises enough.
