"Dr Joseph made me feel like I was his only patient. He asked me what my concerns were and how he felt he could address them to make me happy. He took the time to explain the products available, what he felt would work for my concerns and how the procedure works. He talked me through the process always making sure I was comfortable."

Jeffrey Joseph, MD | Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Q: How does it feel to be voted one of the top five plastic surgeons in OC?
Dr. Jeffrey Joseph: It’s an honor to be included on the list with such talented and accomplished surgeons. I think it says something about the specialized approach that I take to be the only eyelid specialist to be included on that list, so I was very honored to be included in that way.
Q: What do you enjoy about working with clients in Orange County?
JJ: Well, I grew up in Southern California, and the culture of Orange County is something that I really enjoy. The people are down-to-earth and relaxed, and it really fits with the type of practice that I have. The best part of working in Orange County is that you have people that are very in tune with the outdoors and the healthy, natural lifestyle. It really fits with the product that we provide here at our practice.
Q: What inspired you to pursue ophthalmology?
JJ: When I was in medical school and deciding what area I wanted to specialize in, ophthalmology really stood out to me because of the immense difference you can make in the day-to-day lives of the patient’s you’re treating. There’s really no more important sense that we have than our vision, and when you’re doing things on the eyes themselves or around the eyes, that’s really the focus of what I’m trying to provide to people. Even when we’re doing cosmetic surgery, the main focus I have is in making sure that we preserve the health of the eyes and the vision.
Q: You participate in a lot of seminars and even teach as an associate professor at UC Irvine. Why is this important to your practice as a plastic surgeon?
JJ: I’ve always enjoyed teaching. Whether it’s to your patients and explaining to them what their issue is and the best way to go about taking care of it, or if it’s at a seminar teaching nurses, teaching technicians, teaching optometrists or teaching other physicians about the area that I specialize in. In addition, being a professor at UC Irvine means that I get to participate in the education of the residents and fellows that are currently there, and be a part of them and help them become better physicians and surgeons, and help them reach their goals.
