Ratings for Dr. Prajesh M. Joshi
Unpleasant staff. Disappointed that I had hormone levels come back at the low end of the spectrum, yet this didn't seem to alarm him even though I am having hypothyroid symptoms. His nurse called me with results and said everything came back within range, even though some were within .1 of being out of range. I ask her what the next step would be to try to figure out what was going on with me and she said nothing. Completely disgusted with this answer. I need help. What a letdown. A good doctor would have a plan for their patient moving forward and try to figure out what the problem is. My symptoms are real. Fatigue, weight gain, and extremely cold all the time. I have a degree in biological sciences myself. Just because I am within a standards range does not mean that everything is ok. Thanks for nothing Joshi!
I have never felt compelled to rate any doctors but I strongly felt the need to rate this doctor because he is an EXCELLENT doctor. I never had a doctor that really took his time to listen to me and explain my ultrasound report to me to make sure I understand the contents but this doctor took his time and explained everything that I wanted to know. It really ease my worry because I went in thinking that I may have thyroid cancer or something that serious because there was an indication from another doctor that there may be calcification on my thyroid. What's even more impressive is that this doctor took me to the ultra sound droom and performed his own ultra sound just to rule out an y of my concern. I've never had any doctor perform ultra sound of my thyroid. it was always been a technician doing it. That's how much he cares about you as a patient. It was reviews from others that helped me find this doctor so I want to do my part to let everyone know that you are not going to be disappointed with him if you are looking for a good Endocrinologist in Rogers, Arkansas area. This is the best Endocrinology doctor I have seen in my lifetime . BTW, the office staff was excellent as well. hope this helps you with making your decision
The nurse was very artificial and did not have a good bedside manner. Wasn't rude but seemed unhappy. Dr Joshi on the other hand is fantastic!!! He takes the time to read all records, spend time with you, answers your questions, helps you weigh out options for treatment. I didn't feel rushed, he looks you in the eye. He truly cares about my health. He is extremely knowledgeable and precise! Wish more doctors were like him!
Dr. Joshi is a wonderful doctor. He answered all of my questions to where I understood what was going on with me. When it came time to a treatment plan he took what I wanted into consideration. His nurse is wonderful too. Everyone is just so friendly and kind. They are also patient.
Three days after moving to Arkansas, we received my husband's blood work that he had taken the week before in Texas, indicating very high calcium & PTH levels. In a panic, we called over 20 endocrinologists with each one telling us it would be months for an appt. After calling Dr. Joshi's office, we were advised it would be a few weeks which we realized we would have to settle for. After Dr. Joshi received my husband's blood work, he promptly scheduled my husband for an appt the very next day of our call! Dr. Joshi was incredibly professional, knowledgeable and went above and beyond in his duties as his doctor. This included keeping us up to date on his blood work even after hours, and answering all of my questions as a worried, anxious wife (and believe me I had some pretty ridiculous questions in hindsight). I would highly recommend Dr. Joshi, he was a key part in making this horrible health scare easier to deal with & assisted my husband with getting his health back under control.
Dr. Joshi did NOT save my ultrasound pictures, requiring me to repeat my ultrasound elsewhere to obtain ultrasound pictures. This caused a delay in biopsy testing. I also listened to 10 minutes of a "standard story" that most nodules,etc. non-cancerous, don't even notice they are there. THEN he touched my neck and said..."I take back every thing I said." Did not feel confident in proceeding with care with Dr. Joshi.
