My first visit and Will Not very last!! Very helpful and smart,informed and knowledgeable
Feb 25, 2022
I have a lot of respect for Dr. Joy and would recommend her as a doctor for people struggling with eating and feeding disorders. Putting that aside, Dr. Joy has said and done things that make me question whether or not she has any interest or confidence in my ability to participate, let alone take ownership of, my own treatment. I don't think she believes my thoughts and feelings are valuable to our conversations, and I question whether I should be opening my mouth to speak at all. I feel far less motivated to engage in dialogue involving my healthcare moving forward. This is not indicative of the majority of my experiences with Dr. Joy, which makes me feel especially sad.

Aug 27, 2020
I feel like Dr. Joy are very qualified & caring. The only area I wish would improve is their explanation of diagnosis & treatments.
Aug 27, 2020
Diagnosis explanation is unclear - maybe protecting patient. Treatment is only adding adjusting what patient eats. I guess that's ok.
