Ratings for Dr. Joyce G. Chams
Worst experience I've ever had with a doctor visit.I recently saw Dr.Joyce Chams for a Womans wellness visit. She did the PAP smear test and suggested that I do a urine test since I was trying to get pregnant. After doing the urine test , she said I have urine infection and needed to do further culture analysis on it. I took a second opinion soon after and tested positive for pregnancy with no infection. Next Dr.Joyce Chams office send me a bill for specialist visit when I just went for wellness visit which was covered by my insurance. When I called their office, they said they billed me for both specialist and wellness visit as I had a "Problem". Firstly, they wrongly diagnosed my pregnancy as a urine infection and then they make it as my "problem" to change a Wellness visit to specialist visit.
Receptionist are rude and always give false information. I usually spend about an hour to an hour and half for a check up that is less than 5 minutes. Prescriptions have been sent to Wrong pharmacies, and when I ask them to correct it they tell me to call the pharmacy. If you have time to wait around this is the place for you.
Dr. Joyce Chams has been such a blessing to our family. Her professional and personal investment in her patients' care, and her expertise in women's healthcare makes her a standout amongst OB/Gyne practitioners. She is consistent and reliable, reassuring and explanatory. She takes her time to answer patient inquiries despite the packed waiting room. She is always busy and booked with patients but still every thing seems to fall right in to place and you never feel frustrated because she is fantastic and worth it.
I have been going to this office for over 25 years, first with Dr. Joyce' dad and now her. She is a great doctor very knowledgeable and caring, just like her father, and her staff has always treated me great, and there is not much turnover in staff, these are the same people who have been great forever!
I am fed up with this doctor. She made several mistakes and on top of that the meds she prescribed caused me more problems. I tried to tell her I've been gaining weight because my appetite increased more than 4 times since I started theses meds. She wouldn't let me finish explaining and she blamed my weight gain on me, despite the fact I've been eating healthy and trying to exercise, to no avail. I'm switching doctors.
Joyce is great, especially since I am high risk, but her office people are awful. She will treat you like a million dollars, but they treat you like you are less than human. I have had to go to the ER since they refused to make an appt for sooner than 5 wks when I had severe pain.
