01/07/11 1 1 1 1 This doctor might be certifiably insane. on my first visit, i came in with a finger infection i thought might be a fungal problem, he looked at my fingers for 10 seconds and then started asking me questions about my family life, how many tattoos i had (i have 4 visable tattoos that he saw) and if i got good grades in school. when i asked him what this had to do with my fingers he said he thinks i have traits of someone who is bi-polar and he thought that might have been what was causing the infections. this doctor talked to me for a total of 2 minutes and had concluded that i had a serious mental illness based on my appearance. he was unhelpful and on top of it, my infection eneded up being a serious one called "whitlow" which i needed high dose medication for. but of course, i got that information from a doctor who is worthy. DO NOT GO TO THIS INSANE PERSON!  Respond

06/04/11 3 2 2 2 Office was outdated and in disarray. Doctor offered to hypnotize me which I thought was extremely strange. I do not felt he listened well... he was more of a talker. Overall uncomfortable feeling. Would not recommend.  Respond

13/12/10 5 4 5 5 He listens very well and is very willing to help in all sorts of manners. I was acutually able to contact him during a once a in lifetime family event (his not mine) and he was able to talk us through a very difficult time and point my wife and I in the proper direction. Given the clinical signs, he properly diagnosed my wife and, as he prognosticated, needed surgery. Following a visit to the emergency room, lab work, ultrasound, etc. what he believed was occuring, in fact was, and successful surgery was performed. Whenever I, or any family member, have had to be seen, they have been very accommodating in getting us in to see him or his PA asap. I would highly recommend Dr. Boudwin.

12/07/10 4 3 5 5 Dr. B has been my Doctor on and off sine 87 (depending on the current insurance). Yes there is a LONG wait, but if you call and say your sick they will schedual in sometimes double booking him. For me, he's only once pushed a medication on me (my neck kept poping, he said it was stress due to work, and wanted to put me on a low dose anti-depressant. I opened my mouth and asked him to help me find non-medical ways to releave stress. And he was happy to help and said "if these don't work, and it continue poping, come back") I highly recommend Dr. B.  Respond

07/11/09 4 4 5 5 Dr.Boudwin was the only doctor i ever met who i felt actually listened and cared to listen, was not in it for the money. I have had multiple medical problems and he didnt seem annoyed by the extra time I needed to focus on all my problems. He was my doctor for over a year and I wish that I could have remained in his area, I would not have had any other doctor. True his office staff are a little short at times, but I never gave them a reason to make my visit harder then needed, If you are seeking a patient oriented doctorm who takes the time you need to answer your questionsm he is the person I would choose, if you are looking for a fancy waiting room with expensive furnishing and a cold doctor, maybe you should keep looking until you find what you want. I am grateful to have found him during the time that U was living there and word of mouth to me is the best way of giving other people some help, and acknowledge there are still some doctors out there that really do care about the you.

29/04/09 5 4 5 5 Doctor ans staff are very helpful. Dr. Boudwin actually Listens to his patients needs and concerns. Sure, you may have to wait, but why do you think that is? "All good things come to those who wait."

04/03/09 5 3 5 5 I've been his patient since he opened his practice in about the mid 80's. He has always listened to any problems I've had, was quick to diagnose my problem and was able to cure whatever ailed me. When he was concerned about something he was not familiar with, his referrals were also spot on. He is dedicated to his patients and actually likes people. He is worth the wait.

07/06/07 2 4 5 very good doctor. he listens and takes all the time you need with him. which is probably why the wait to see him is so long. i wated over an hour just to get into a room to wait longer. the new nurse is cool and good with a needle. and i hate needles! the receptionist was nice too. he should probably have more people working then those two so the wait might not take so long.

02/01/07 2 4 3 A wonderful man, but it is a very long wait to see him, and he's quite scattered. He pushes drugs often, but takes no for an answer as well. Very willing to help and listen to questions.

26/03/06 3 5 5 A doctor willing to spend time talking, explaining, and answering your questions. Offered alternative, practical and less expensive solutions to my sinus problem instead of having me fill a prescription, although that was an option. Friendly and knowledgable.  Respond

30/11/05 3 5 5 He is very willing to listen and devote as much time as a patient needs. very empathetic and caring. The only complaint is a very long wait to see him. Worth the wait!
