Easy-going, knowledgeable, professional, takes time to listen and understand the situation. Dr. Joseph is transparent and straight-forward with his recommendations for a treatment plan. Highly recommended! - Thank you Dr. for saving lives.
Dr. Joseph has been my psychiatrist for almost 1 year now. My therapist recommended him because I wasn't feeling good and he was the one to diagnose my depression. He was very supportive from day 1, explaining the type of depression I have, the medication recommended and the side effects associated with this medication. Whenever I come for a consultation, he listens to me carefully and provide support when needed. I felt at ease to talk about everything happening with me.
Dr Joseph is a true professional who is able to diagnose brilliantly and with strong understanding of the full picture. He is readily available to support while giving reassurance that a cure is not a long way away
