Joffe Alan L MD Facog

Depends what your looking for

My first time to his office- I wasn't sure what to expect. I was looking for a OB/GYN that was close to Northside & covered by my insurance, and his name came up. Dr. Joffe was very nice & friendly, very quick in his exam, and explained things to me well. His exam rooms are well equipped and covered with TONS of baby pictures- ones I'm sure he delivered. I was in and out in under an hour which was great. Parking was a bit pricey- $4 bucks for an hour. The office waiting area seemed clean, but when I asked to use the restroom & was suggested to then leave a sample in there, I found that there were 5 cups of pee already sitting in the screen-door!! GROSS!! Also, the nurse seemed a bit frazzled- like she didn't really seem confident in her job duties. She was in and out, and my finger bled for a good 30 minuets after she took the iron test... soaked through the band-aid to leave a small stain on my new, lightly colored shirt. Overall, if you need a nice quick OB/GYN, he would do- but since I am in my late 20's and starting to look for a doctor to be fully comfortable with when I get pregnant, I don't think I'll be returning to Dr. Joffe's office.

NOT FOR TMJ

I went there based off a run of referrals- and lord it was a pain. I was hopeful though, very, very painful TMJ kept (still keeps) me from eating many every-day foods (anything chewy, crunchy or crispy). Mind you, before I went to this guy- I have seen 2 dentist, I have had 2 different splints, and equilibration already in the past 2 years. An hour (plus some) AFTER my appt time (on more than one occasion this happened), I finally got to see a doctor- he recommended me to physical therapy. I went to PT for 2 months (twice a week) of this and returned, telling him it wasn't working for me all that well. A couple questions later, finding out I don't really sleep well- he gives me an Rx for a low-dose of a antidepressant that is typically used as a sleeping Rx. I followed his directions for about a month and return for a check up. At this point, I am on the verge of tears- fed up, in pain, and I felt like I was talking to a brick wall, telling him its still not working. He then increases the dose of the Rx and tells me to go back to physical therapy... and sent me on my merry way. I felt SO unimportant to this man, and he made me feel as if my TMJ was a joke. Needless to say- I'm in the process of finding a new oral surgeon to treat my TMJ.

a little rude- overpriced

I went here because this is where she went and brought her kids. I was a little shocked at how rude the people were and then i paid 45 + tip for a 1" trim and I had to blow-dry my own hair or pay an additional $15 for them to do it. I am not impressed...
