Dr. Joyo performed an aortic valve replacement for my husband. When we first met Dr. Joyo, he came to my husband's room at the hospital to explain the procedure. He could sense that we were visibly upset about hearing the diagnosis. He calmly told us, along with both my sons listening on their cell phones about the procedure. He answered all of our questions. He has a very calming demeanor that made me us feel better. Also when we found out that he was from Hawaii too (I'm from the Big Island), it made us feel even more comfortable that he was going to be doing the surgery. Even on the morning of the surgery, he knew how nervous we were and he reassured us that everything was going to be fine. The one thing that I appreciate most about Dr Joyo was he came to visit my husband every day to not just check up on him but to sit and chat with him. There are not that many doctors (especially surgical) will do that.
