08/04/10 5 5 5 5 I'm so relieved that Dr. Longnecker is back and priviledged to be back in the office, helping out for as long as he needs me. The new staff is great! Beth is a Godsend and it's great to work with her again. Jen, Julie and Julie are so sweet! Dr was betrayed by those he trusted but he didn't throw in the towel, and now he is back stronger than ever! He chose his patients over the Heritage and that speaks for itself what kind of Dr. he is. Great to see many of his patients and the outpour of love for him! See you soon! Diane or..(nurse Diane) :D

17/03/10 5 5 5 5 Hooray !!! Dr. Longnecker will be back in practice on Monday 3/22/10. Just in case you've been coming here for status on Dr. Joe as I have been, the official memo is out on this… He opens at 301 Bastenchury next Monday. Dr. Longnecker was always in it for his patients and it's my belief, that when his former Medical Group made him choose between them and his patients, he made the decision you would hope any Doctor would and chose his patients. For this, he has me as a loyal patient for life. He was certainly missed while he was away and I, for one, will be making my appointment for a check-up real soon.

09/02/10 5 5 5 5 My family and I are loyal Dr. Longnecker patients. His practice embodies what is right with our health care system and should be a model for others. I've come in contact with many physicians in my 30 years as a registered nurse and none compare with "Dr. Joe". If you're reading this Dr. Joe, and decide to open a new practice, I would love to come to work for you and be a part of your health promotion ethic. If not, Joe and Bobbie want you to know how much we love you, appreciate you and also want you to know that you're always in our prayers.

12/01/10 4 4 5 5 Dr. Joe is passionate for caring for his patients. He has been our family doctor (26 of us) for almost 30 years. He has had to put up with St Jude Heritage for way too long. My family and I are fed up with St Jude Heritage. Most of you know what I mean. My family is looking forward to Dr. Joe opening his new practice. Hey Joe, WE LOVE YOU. The Cabrera Family

11/01/10 4 5 5 5 This Dr. is by far the most personal, knowledgeable and careing Dr. I have ever been to and everyone I know and have talked to. We were all so devistated and did not know what we would do if he ever left. I am so , so very relieved that he is just taking a time off and will return to his own practice. We love him. He is the best. And if anyone thinks different, then they did not know him. He has helped me and if he was not there I could not trust other Doctors. That is how excellent and special this Dr.is. He is like our family. He knows his patients and his Medicine We miss him and have not been cared for properly by the group while he was gone. He was so wanted they placed 2 guards in his office when he temprarily left for this leave. Patients are sick of the network throwing them all over the place because they know no one can replace this wonderful Doctor or take his place. (with all due respect, doctors) This is a cry for help from his loving patients. He is Awesome!!!!!!!!!!

29/12/09 4 5 5 5 Dr Longnecker is by far the best doctor I have known in my 53 years. He has been there for us in so many important and difficult times in our lives including my parents deaths. My family will miss him if he doesn't return but my concern is for him and for his family. I don't know what is wrong but he would not leave suddenly unless it was very important. We are praying for you Dr. Longnecker. We miss you and hope all will be well with you soon.

12/12/09 4 5 5 5 Dr. Joe treats our entire family, from our 84 year old grandmother, to our 3 year old daughter. He is always honest, knowledgeable, helpful and kind. He cares about our treatment and often makes himself available in off hours by giving us his home telephone number. He explains things in a very understandable manner and always makes time to answer your questions. There is none better.

We have been able to share our trials and tribulations with him as well as he has for us. The only reason we stay with his group, St. Jude, is because of him. If he leaves, we leave!

09/10/09 5 5 5 5 He's an awesome pediatrician to my 2 little kids. He's very thorough with his examinations and doesn't hesitate to refer them out when necessary. I completely trust him and he's even gives out his home number in case I need over the weekend. He's so caring and kind -- I brag about him all of the time! Thank you so much Dr. Longnecker!! You are absolutely the BEST!!!

18/09/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Longnecker has been my physician for my whole life (he brought me into the world), there isn't another Dr. i would trust more then him. He has a very wide knowledge of all medical fields. He has helped my family and I with many problems and has always handled it with the utmost care for his patients. He would never guide you in the wrong direction or let you have a medicine or operations that he didn't think was right. His morality and ethics are above standards. I just hope he never retires cause I'd truly be lost without his help and information.

Despite his large patient load, he always remembers what is going on in my personal life and my medical history without looking at my folder!!

22/05/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Longnecker's practice is closed to new patients so it is pretty hard to get in. You need to have a really good friend who is already a patient recommend you... or you need to have a doctor who is good friends with his office to help you get in. Hands down there is NOBODY like Dr. Longnecker in all of Orange County. He is the best of the best of the best. He's got a great personality, really listens to you, and the quality of care at his practice is the very best. I really respect him, and I 100% appreciate his staff. They are always friendly, helpful, and very attentive. There isn't one single bad thing I can say about his office. The only thing I regret is that this is a closed practice and it can be hard for new people to get in as new patients. Everybody needs a doctor like Dr. Longnecker.

06/05/09 4 5 5 5 The best! I once had a blocked salivary gland misdiagnosed as an allergic reaction to my heart medications. Dr. Longnecker took one look at it, scheduled me with a specialist who did some very minor surgery and less than 24 hours later, I was good to go! I have a dozen more stories like that to tell. The man is amazing!

23/02/09 5 5 1 1 I brought in my one year old with what seemed to be a horrible cold. He treated her for such, and sent us on our way. I went back three times after that within a 4 week period since the "cold" had never improved. He kept saying it was just a cold and she will get over it. I chose to take my daughter to another pediatrician, who, after doing a nasal and chest x-ray and examining her, told me she had asthma and allergies and immediately put her on medication. Within three days she was 100% better. I wasted over a month on Dr. Longnecker...and had to see my daughter suffer for his inabilities.

31/01/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Joe took care of my kids about 10 years ago before we moved out of state. We have never been able to replace him. My son was very ill at birth and had to be at Children's hospital for a month. We brought him home and back to Dr. Joe, he not only took good care of my son, but he took good care of me too. He took my calls in the middle of night and always saw us on short notice. He always went the extra mile to put my mind at ease. Other members of my family still see him and they tell me he is still the best!!

24/09/06 4 5 5 Always takes time to LISTEN to your concerns, no matter how petty or small they may seem. I go in for our kid, and he gives me the once over as well. Will go the extra mile including making an "emergency" house call when his patient is too ill to come in, or bed riden. A true HEALER! Nicest and most intellegent Dr. I've ever had
