Ratings for Dr. Michael J. Boyd
My single worst experience with a medical professional. He failed to read paperwork and so did not know I was already on medication for my condition when he examined me, and almost sent me away as a result. Once he put me on a stronger medication he refused to listen to my concerns about the impact the side effects were having on me at work. He was rude, dismissive and rushed in every interaction and outright hostile when I attempted to discuss alternative therapies with him. I never got a proper diagnosis with him, it took a resident at a different clinic 40 minutes to diagnose once I switched including 20 minutes for the dialation drops to kick in (pigmentary glaucoma).
! I have seen Dr.Boyd several time and I should have listen to my gut. He's very unfriendly, arrogant, not helpful at all, doesn't listen to his patient. I don't think he really does a thorough checked on my eyes. Verybusy office that, doesn't mean he's very good. Would not recommend to anyone I know.
Dr Boyd and his staff are wonderful. I had laser vision done 12 years ago by Dr Boyd and was so pleased and confident in the procedure that my 23 year old son also had it done this year. He is thrilled with the outcome. The office can be busy but the staff is always making sure that everyone is taken care of - I wouldnt go anywhere else. On the follow up visits the staff treats you like family and want to make sure you have a great recovery. I highly recommend Dr Boyd and his staff. They are a caring wonderful group - thank you
I had a wonderful experience. I traveled a long distance and they treated me like family. All of the staff were friendly and took care of me. Dr Boyd saw me in the morning and by the afternoon I was in having Lasik surgery. He was very thorough and answered all my questions. I had a follow up the next morning which all went well. Now a month later I have 20/20 vision and I couldn't be happier. They have followed up with me twice even though I am doing my post op with my local optometrist. A very professional outfit and I will recommend! Many thanks!
Dr Boyd and his staff are friendly and caring professionals equipped to assess and improve eye and vision concerns. In my case, lense replacement surgery led to a great result with 20/20 distance and reading without any corrective lenses. The office is often busy but thorough eye care was never compromised even if this meant waiting a few minutes longer. Follow up questions and re-tests were met promptly and on schedule. I had a very good experience with Dr. Michael Boyd..
Very knowledgeable and patient Doctor. He is always ready to answer any questions and make sure you understand the situation with your eyes. Highly recommend Dr. Boyd. Thank you for letting me see again without my glasses/contacts. I'm very happy with my results.
I'm quite surprised at all of the positive reviews Dr. Boyd has received, as my experience was anything BUT positive. I saw Dr. Boyd on an urgent basis as I'd developed a sudden onset of blurry, double vision. The first tech I saw who did some eye measurements was very friendly - I initially thought he WAS Dr. Boyd, only to discover he was just a tech. When it came time for Dr. Boyd to see me, he was arrogant, condescending, and had an attitude that made it seem as though he had other places he wanted to be (surely it wasn't because he was rushed to see another patient, as there was no one else waiting in the office at the time.) He barely even looked at my problematic eye! All he did was quickly shine a light in it, proceeded to tell me that my eye "looked" normal (without doing any real testing that other optometry clinics typically do), and sent me home with drops for dry-eye. Meanwhile, my eyesight is still blurry and bothersome. I don't recommend Dr. Boyd to anyone, and I will be seeking a second opinion from a different ophthalmologist.
