Dr Karen Joash is a kind, considerate, professional, incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, attentive and wonderful obstetrician. I cannot rate her highly enough! I was very fortunate to have Dr Joash as my doctor throughout my pregnancy. She listens. She communicates well. She allayed all my fears as a first time mother. It is very clear that Karen cares deeply about her patients and is passionate about her profession.
Dr. Joash is the best doctor. She’s prompt with scheduling appointments, and has the nicest demeanor. Honestly, she’s warm, funny, and just so lovely. I’ve been a patient of hers for over a year, she’s very thorough, gives you as much time as you need during visits. And I’ll always be grateful that she delivered my baby girl, to the music of Queen (Don’t Stop Me Now). She even regaled us with some impromptu Whitney Houston. I’m happy we didn’t lose her to the world of pop music!
Dr. Joash was my doctor during my first pregnancy and she also delivered my baby. I can’t speak highly enough of her. Dr Joash is extremely competent and confident. I trust her wholeheartedly and would highly recommend her. She is a leader in her field, extremely knowledgeable and I had not doubt that me and my baby are in the most capable hands and that we will receive only the best care possible. Thanks to Karen I had a smooth pregnancy and delivery. We have received outstanding professional medical care. In addition, all the Hospital midwives that treated us mentioned time after time how amazing Karen is and how they enjoy working beside her. Lastly, her PA, Sophia, provided professional, efficient and comprehensive administrative support.
The best doctor I could have asked for. Karen made me feel at ease throughout my two pregnancies and deliveries. She paid close attention to my individual needs and circumstances. In the end I achieve the best possible deliveries suited for me. I miss my meetings with her.
I've just given birth less than 2 weeks ago and I can honestly say Karen has been absolutely fantastic with us. Not only she's been extremely helpful and supportive during the pregnancy but she's also been there for us the whole time during birth. I couldn't have wished for a better delivery and I will be always grateful for her making this such an amazing experience. We can't recommend her enough, she is the best obstetrician we could have had.
