I enjoy seeing Dr.Joseph, he is knowledgeable, friendly and provides quick service. I am in the mental health profession myself, and believe that he caters to those who truly need it. To anyone who believes he recklessly provides drugs to those seeking, you are wrong. There are many people out their who attempt to take advantage based on addiction, however this doctor is strict on his policies and watches for warning signs of those abusing. The only issue I have with the office is the older woman at the front, she is rude, however all of the other office staff is friendly.

Recently moved to the area and am very picky about the doctors I stick with. I very much liked Dr. Joseph and will continue to go to his office. I am not sure what the previous review about Xanax etc. was about. I am having a rough time

I have been with Sonny Joseph going on 3 years now, and find him to be great. At first I quested how he diagnosed me by asking 15 min worth of question but he did. He worked with me for a year before finding the best meds for me. Follow up

Like I said in my comment to Awesome Doctor, Dr. Sonny Joseph is really great. He seemed to know exactly what it was I needed the very first time I went to see him. I don't understand all the bad reviews because he is a very nice and caring Doctor. I highly reccomend him.

Pros: He is highly knowledgable and will help you if you go to him

Cons: I can't think of any

Dr. Joseph caused me to experience unnecessary suffering by not considering my overall health and other medications before taking me off Effexor. Many of his methods are questionable, and his recommended plan for weening [a patient] off strong drugs such as Effexor isn't consistent with commonly accepted practice. He generally spent less than 5 minutes with me on each visit, didn't appear to listen to my concerns, and changed my medications frequently. Needless to say, I will never go back to him, and could not recommend him in good conscience.

I do not understand some of the reviews i have read. It's like they are speaking about a monster. I have been going to Dr Joseph for several months. He has made my life so much better. He tried me on medications and worked on finding just the right combination for me for my bi-polar disorder. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to anyone!! Dr Joseph truly cares about my issues and takes the time to hear me out. He knows just how to make my life better. I am soooooo thankful for Dr Joseph!!!!

Psychiatrists give you 'medication' scripts in 10 minutes or less, that's all they do anymore in this country, things used to be different. Its just another symptom of how diseased our health care system is. Anyway, no one should expect anything more from psychiatrists, if you need talk therapy not just some psychoactive substances and a 5 second diagnosis (which most everyone seeing a psych does) see a LSCW, psychologist, or the like.

I guess the guy himself is fine if you take the profession of psychiatry for what it currently is. It is retarded and mind blowing that he makes so much money doing so little though. There's other less than legal professions where you get massive profits for getting people these thing...he's a glorified dealer.

Oh and there are one or two (maybe more I was never able to be sure) massive a-holes on his office staff. You will be in awe of how rude, snappy and inconsiderate they can be. On the bright side I think the rude ones are pretty old and will be dead soon. Yay!

Cons: Staff has some real jerks on it

I called to make an appointment as a first time patient after my doctor recommended me to see someone. Having no experience with a psychiatrist I really just wanted information. When I asked what he specialized in the lady who answers the phone demanded that I know what I'm calling about already. I told her I wasn't sure, just a general visit with a psychiatrist would do, but she barked back something about how I need to have a specific reason to see the doctor. Isn't it the psychiatrists job to help diagnose me?

Finally she put me on hold after arguing with me about which days I COULDN'T see the doctor, and I just hung up. I couldn't believe how rude this hag could be over the phone, but I guess I'm not surprised after reading the reviews here. I was nothing but polite to her the whole time, I wonder how bad the doctor is and I feel sorry for anyone who gets that far.

Cons: Treated horribly before you walk in the door.

This was my first visit to a psychiatrist. I just dont see how you can diagnose someone in five minutes with yes and no questions and prescribe them something that could really screw them up if the diagnosis is wrong. Whenever i started to elaborate on some of my answers, Sonny would cut me off with another question. Its sunday and i cant call to tell them im experiencing some terrible side effects and im afraid to stop taking the prescription without consult. He seems to be the psychiatrist that suburban housewives go to for a prescription to take the edge while handling a bunch of kids. Sonny is the opposite of Robin Williams from Good Will Hunting. Ice cold pill pusher.

Pros: Speedy diagnoses and easy to get your hand on a prescription

Cons: Speedy diagnoses and easy to get your hand on a prescription. Pretty sure thats dangerous

Dr. Joseph is fabulous . He is a caring very compassionate person with ability to recognize the patients problems, hopes, and dreams. He helps to save marriages and other family crisis. He should be recognized for all of this that he does. He is the reason I go to him rather than change or try other Dr's.
He has done his best to assure the patients health and safety. He uses his knowledge andabilities to make sure the patint understands how the medication will work before giving it and if the medication does not work will try somethingelse.

I picked Sonny Joseph simply because he was listed under my insurance plan's providers. From what I read online about what to expect on a first visit in general, I thought at the very least I'd be given a series of tests/analysis or at least an opportunity for in-depth discussion with feedback regarding my issue(s). I think I actually spent more time filling out the new patient paperwork and waiting in the reception area then I did with the Doctor. He did ask a few questions about why I was there as well as a few basic "vitals" related questions (allergies, medical history, etc...), but there was no real in-depth discussion and/or care plan discussed. What I left with was a referral to see a therapist, some med samples and basic instructions, and a follow-up visit scheduled for 10 days out, then a plan of one visit approx. every three months.

Dr. Joesph did come across as being personable, well-educated, and professional, and his staff was very friendly, but this was not the "analytical" type of session you read/hear about and generally expect, and I'm definitely not a mental health or medical expert, but I'm not sure that the time I was given was enough for even the brightest of Doctors to reach a diagnosis and dispense medication (without any type of labw work ordered either, which really suprised me considering the possible side-effects of the meds I was given that I found after doing research on my own).

I plan on trying the therapist out - hopefully that will give me the information and feedback I expected to get on my visit to Dr. Joseph. I'm not sure I'm even going to take the meds though without a more thorough examination.

Been seeing this guy for a long time and I will keep seeing him because he writes me prescriptions in under 5 minutes. I'm lucky because I know what I need. He doesn't. He is just a hand that holds a pen.

I do not respect this guy at all, in fact I find him morally deplorable. This is a revolving door racket. He is soaking up insurance company bliss.

I went out and made a completely new email account with bogus info before writing this comment becasue I don't want it to be traced back to me.

PROS: If you have no former doctor reference and want to experiment with meds this is your guy. Just say you had a previous doctor.

CONS: He is probably making bad things happen to good people.

I totally agree with the last review....people find true doctor who cares. If you want a REAL doctor then this is not the guy for you. He doesn't care at all about his patients...just asks if everything is okay and writes out a prescription. This doctor is nothing but a pill pusher....and should be judged as such. You get 5 minutes talking to him...oh and please don't question your treament. He doesn't have time to listen...so he will just tell you to find another doctor. I have never seen anything like it. The man cares about how many patients he can see in a 15 minute time frame...and the money in his pocket. He should be turned into the medical board. DON'T GO TO THIS MAN. Find a real doctor...who really cares for his patients

I highly recommend that you do NOT visit Dr. Sponny Joseph if you have any mental health or sleep problems. You will not be getting a caring Doctor. Dr. Joseph never lets you talk. All of my appointments were under 5 minutes. When I made a suggestion regarding my treatment for insomnia, he just outright dumped me as a patient for my remerity. I had never given him any problems, always paid upfront for visits and was genreally not a hard case. When I couldn't find another Doctor taking new patients, I contacted Dr. Sonny Joseph to let them know this, but the receptionist, told me that Dr. Joseph said he would NOT help me out. She said that she had to get off the phone and that she was just "doing her job". What a sad, sorry state of affairs for that office.
