For about a year, Dr. Riya Joseph had been begging Juan De Anda to get a colonoscopy, a common health screening for patients his age.
Dr. Joseph, lead physician at WellMed at South Buckner in Dallas, had become increasingly worried about his lab results, so she kept urging him to get the procedure. He finally agreed.
The results confirmed Dr. Joseph’s suspicions: Juan had colon cancer.
Thanks to Dr. Joseph’s persistence, Juan was treated and is now clear of cancer. It’s easy to see why he’s a Dr. Joseph and WellMed Super Fan.
“I told her, ‘You have been very astute, because I didn’t feel like anything was wrong with me,’ ” Juan said.
“I am so happy with Dr. Joseph and WellMed. She takes good care of me and checks everything really well – even my feet, because I’m diabetic. But she also works fast; she’s young.”
Juan also sings the praises of the staff at WellMed at South Buckner.
“They are so nice, and I get service fast,” he said. “Dr. Joseph has lots of patients, but her appointments are well organized, so you’re not waiting a long time. When you go up to the counter, they assist you right away. And then it seems like as soon as you sit down, they are already calling you in.”
“They take good care of me.”
