    • Ann Lansing, MI 06.07.14

      Dr. Joyner saw my daughter in the 90's when he was at Madigan. He was the best and always made her and me feel very comfortable. To this day she still has a green teddy bear he gave her at one appointment when she having some "icky" test done - that's what he called it.

    • Christina Marysville, Washington 04.09.13

      Dr. Joyner performed surgery to correct Hydronephrosis on my son when he was just 4 months old. I was wary of my son recieving surgery at such a young age but knew that it needed to happen to assure that he would grow up a healthy, happy boy. Immediately upon meeting with Dr. Joyner with our first appointment, our family felt at ease. He is very personable and straight forward with his approach to care. He makes sure that all questions are answered and all concerns are addressed. The day that he performed my son's surgery our whole family came to the hospital to wait for my son to come out of surgery. Dr. Joyner did an excellent job communicating my son's progress. My son had a very short recovery time and was able to be back to a laughing, smiling baby boy in no time. Dr. Joyner's incision still cannot be detected today as my son is almost 4 years old! We can hardly even tell that he had surgery. Dr. Joyner did an excellent job and my son has shown improvement in his kidney function each year. I highly reccommend Dr. Joyner! He is the best at what he does and it shows that he truly loves his job.

    • Yelena Bothell, WA 06.01.12

      Dr Joyner did my surgery when I was a child 10 years ago. No problems so far. I think of him once in a while and thank God for sending me to this doctor. God bless him :) Yelena.

    • Tara Lacey, WA 03.01.12

      My son was born with hypospadius and we made the long drive from Lacey to have him perform his surgery. Dr. Joyner was amazing with my son and Aiden has never had another problem.

    • Diana Centralia , WA 01.25.12

      Dr. Joyner treated 2 of my daughters. One was evaluated, tested, and then referred to his nurse Jean, who was beyond amazing. She worked with my older daughter, using biofeedback and many other things to help her with a protracted problem. My younger daughter was tracked for 2 more years and eventually he performed a minor procedure and when it didn't work, actual invasive surgery. He was conservative, helpful, patient, respectful and when problems arouse post-surgery, which were not his fault, he dealt with me and my physicians over then phone in my local area. I was thrilled with his work.

    • Martha Renton, WA 10.18.11

      I really appreciate Dr. Joyner's proffessionalism, he assessed my son and scheduled a prompt surgery and my son now feels more confident and wants to do great things from meeting his Dr. Thanks

    • Katie Lacey Wa 03.09.11

      I can not say enough good things about Dr. Joyner. He saw my 5 year old son, found out the problem and quickly scheduled surgery to help him. The surgery went great and my son is doing 100% better. I would recomend him to anyone!
