Ratings for Dr. Richard J. Boal
Dr. Boal is an excellent Orthopedic Surgeon. He has treated me for several joint problems. He replaced my knee, has done arthroscopic on my other knee and 2 trigger-finger surgeries. I love his personality and bedside manner. He really explains in detail what the problem is and your options. Too bad he is retiring soon. I will now have to find another surgeon.
Dr Boal was very helpful with my back. I believe he ia an excellent physician. My issue with him was his ego. He falsly thought I was interested in him due to my making small talk. How wrong he was and that put a wedge bewteen us. However, he is a good doctor just do not share any personal info with him or his ego gets in the way.
I was a patient of Dr. Boal's for 2 years. He did two surgeries of mine. While I feel he is an excellent surgeon, he lacks in other areas such as bedside manner. He doesn't spend enough time with his patients. One of my appointments he literally saw me for 45 seconds and then left. I was also having problems after my surgery with swelling for months and he kept telling me it will go away when I ended up having an arthritic disease!
