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!
Dr. Box is the BEST! I thought I could not be helped with my fibro until I heard Dr. Box speak at a meeting and I knew immediately, this was the doctor I needed to see to put some sense back into my life and help get rid of my constant pain. I feel Dr. Box has saved my life!
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
Dr. Box is one of the best in knowing what's new in rheumatology and what treatments are available, what experiences patients have had with different treatments, etc., but he is very poor at really listening and trying to get to the bottom of a problem that isn't "typical". He's quick to diagnose, write a Rx and move on.
