Ratings for Dr. James E. Boudwin
Would recommend NOT seeing this doctor. Receptionist is rude. Hard to get a referral to see a specialist. Very difficult to get an appointment and when you get an appointment you end up waiting for hours in the waiting room and then the doctors spends very minimal time listening to you. Would definitely not recommend this doctor.
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!
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.
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.
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.
