Won't go back, would not recommend, don't go to her..., Apr 25, 2013
Office was dirty. Entrance to office difficult to find. Poor review of medical history and poor physical exam. Difficulty in getting prescription refill. Doctor took 3 phone calls and left the exam room twice during visit.
Would not recommend.
Avoid this one at all costs, ladies and gentlemen...., Apr 7, 2013
No interest in making patients feel better, or even at ease. She ignored my health history, dismissed everything that the referring doctor had said and all of the family history of arthritises and autoimmune disorders. She was absolutely rude and cold. It's only the clinic's policy of taking lots of tests and x-rays that made the visit at all worthwhile, as I ended up with information to take to a different rheumatologist! She was happy to write me off, and I'm so glad that I had the choice of other providers in the area.
Misdiagnosed my child Prescribed dangerous medication...., Feb 11, 2013
Wow. Character Limit. Sucks cause there is a lot to tell. I will make some points. 1) I had to guess my child's diagnostic and he would just agree with me. 2) Told me my child has pinworms when complaining about belly pain and constipation without even checking in a lab ( my child was later diagnosed at the ER with Encopresis ). 3) Prescribes Tylenol for everything from headaches to possibly cancer. 4) Call to make an appointment for lung check when my child had a severe flu but instead I was sent to the Pharmacy where a prescription will be sent. went to the Pharmacy and everything was Over the Counter.5)GI doctor requested a note in December from him. It is February and the GI never received it. 6) Called to get something for my son's cough. Transferred through three different receptionists ( one was chewing her food while on the phone with me).Got prescription for ASTHMA medication.Pharmacist asked me not to give my son the medication as it is dangerous.Encopresis+med=Renal Failure
Google "Complaints" on this MD before making an appointment for a procedure..., Feb 10, 2013
Before selecting any doctor, please do your due diligence and google complaints on whomever is giving you a consultation before you make an appointment or give them your money for any procedure,
even if they tell you that they invented the procedure you are looking to have done, and/or that they teach it internationally and that you need look no further for the best person to do the job. ALWAYS LOOK FURTHER WHEN SOMEONE TELLS YOU THIS.
I wish I had.
avoid at all costs, don't make the same mistake, i left in tears and irate..., Dec 13, 2012
I would not suggest doctor Joseph Hooper to anybody. I have never taken the time to write a review on a product or services of any kind before, but he will treat you with such disdain that I hope that no one ever has to suffer his treatment. He has only his experiences to base his life "opinions" on and if you are not someone with simple problems he has dealt with before, then you are wrong in his eyes and he will make a point to tell you. If you try and discuss your issues with him, he will tell you that you are just seeking special attention, that you are faking and he will talk down to you as if you were his child. If you try and make any retorts to his insults, he will then proceed to mumble insults under his breath right in front of you as if you are too stupid to know what he is doing. If you want to leave your doctor in tears or livid with anger, then by all means, go to him, but if you wanted to be treated with respect from your "care giver", then save yourself the grief and time and seek a different doctor. He told me that my psychiatric symptoms weren't real and upon realizing that I did need proper help, he very abrasively asked if I was going to kill myself and then told me I could find another doctor. That being said, I was always able to get either same day or next day appointments anytime I called and I can only assume, after reading similar reviews, that he just doesn't hold on to any of his patients and therefore his schedule is always open.
