I had the worst experience of any doctor I had ever been to. I had an appointment once that I waited two hours after and he still had not showed up. I even heard him in the hallway talking about what patients were here and went and saw a patient who had an appointment time after mine. So horribly unprofessional. I ended up walking out and never going back, but of course I never got refunded for the co-pay for that visit. He also put the wrong diagnosis on my medical paperwork so that when I went to try to see another doctor they were confused about what he had told me versus what was on my charts. He would love to thowr meds at you and walk away. Absolute worst.

Dr. Box is prompt and will even work you in the same day if you are ill. He is a good listener and knowledgeable. Most of all is understanding and truly caring. I have the utmost respect for him and I think he is a wonderful physician.

He is not sensitive to the needs of patients, especially those who do not have insurance. He was condescending, and made me feel that I was wasting his time.

Dr. Box has been both my Internest as well as my Rheumatologist since 1994. He has ALWAYS been a team player with my vast medical team, conferred with my other specialists when necessary, ALWAYS returned my calls when I've specified that they were "personal", within no longer than 12 hours - including evenings and weekends, and has ALWAYS had my best interest at heart. If I were to lose him for some reason, I would be completely devestated. I KNOW I could NEVER find another doctor like Dr Box who knows and completely understands all of both the medical AND the emotional ramifications of the numerous conditions I suffer with daily. He's #1 in my book - there's no one that even comes close to him It's a shame he's so overwhelmed now that he can no longer accept new patients. So many people are missing out on the experience of this wonderful, bright, caring doctor - one who gives you all the time you need. He really DOES care. He LISTENS. He's THE BEST!

Until seeing Dr. Box, I thought Kansas City was truly a 3rd world country for medicine & treatment. He is professional, extensive with his medical knowledge & healthful recommendations, and I was amazed by how well he listened & heard what I was saying. He is NOT your typical Kansas City Dr. I wish I had found him sooner.

Prompt,answers questions personally and returns phone calls same day. Very knowledgable in rheumatology. Some of staff are not. Although he has a very busy practice does not make you feel rushed and is not threatened if you disagree. Does not cut you off as a patient when insurache changes to one that may not pay as well. fushed
