Ratings for Dr. Mary Jane Boyd
As I sit in Dr. Boyd's office waiting to be seen, I'm essentially mad at myself for continuing to see this doctor. The rest of the reviews are correct. This Doctor has zero bedside manner. Her staff is the same. Not to mention, there's no barrier between the waiting area and reception. It's a little disturbing listening to other people's business. Isn't that a violation of privacy rights?! Taking care of business today and then NEVER returning. Seriously. Don't waste your time here.
Hope Dr. Boyd has retired by now. She is a miserable person with absolutely NO bedside manner. I scheduled an appointment because I had a bump in my private area and was really worried about it. She came in threw a speculum without even introducing herself. I told her I was told I was positive for herpes simplex 1 from when I was pregnant 8 yrs prior. She immediately said "oh yeah you have herpes." Gave the assistant a swab and gave me a wad of paper towels to clean up and walked out without saying anything else. The assistant looked so embarrassed and could tell she felt bad but I was just one out of the many she sees treated that way. I had to ask the front desk what the next steps were and was told I would get a call. I never got a call and had to call myself and they said oh I thought we had called you. I asked for the results and asked to speak with Dr. Boyd. She got on and told me I was positive. Positive for what? She said vaginal herpes. I asked what strain she said one which didn't surprise me. She had no advice other than telling me I had herpes. Regardless what my results read she made me feel like I had a disease and left it at that. If I was younger I can't even imagine how upset and scared she would have left me feeling. This lady should've retired before she started. I learned more from google: While both herpes 1 and 2 cause the same type of painful cold sore, the key difference between the two types is recurrence risk. While you can certainly get herpes 2 on your lips and herpes 1 on your labia or penis, this is mostly likely going to be a one shot deal. This is because herpes 1 prefers to be “above the belt” and herpes 2 “below the belt.” In a nut shell, herpes 1 on the genitals is far less likely to shed sporadically or give you recurrent cold sores and the same goes for herpes 2 in the mouth. They thrive best in their native habitat. That’s one of the reasons to get a lesion swabbed on your genitals, to get it typed to see if it is herpes 1 or 2. If it is herpes 1, you are far less likely to shed the virus and have recurrent outbreaks and are also less likely to transmit it to your partner. That information may just give you some piece of mind. If it’s herpes 2, there are ways to deal, and we’ll review that in another blog later this week.
She is very rude. She made me feel uncomfortable. I researched some issues I having and printed out blogs of other women having the same issues. She told me that it was wrong and the only way to fix it was medicine for scizo. I brought my boyfriend with me for support and she was rude to him when he asked questions. She is very unhelpful. I want someone who is going to make me feel comfortable with any questions I have and offer suggestions instead of turn me down and offer me no solutions.
Dr. Boyd is one of the worst physicians I have ever seen for anyone in my family. I chose this location because it was near my home and this physician because I felt a female would better understand my problem. Needless to say, I never received a diagnosis and ended up in the hospital a month later from endometrial systems which caused irregular heavy menstural bleeding leading to blood transfusions. Dr. Boyd visited me at the hospital and stated I may need a hysterctomy but she doesn't work on patients my size. Wow, wish I had known that prior to my first visit with her. Needless to say, I found another physician who realizes that my health issues were life threatening and it is more important to efficient than rude.
The worst OB/GYN I have ever been to. She is not only rough, rude, and forgetful, but she appears to have no real knowledge of medicine. Twice now other physicians have corrected me on something she told me on very important issues. Repugnant bedside manner.
Very rough exam. Told me my ovary needed to come out & why not take the other, since I was over forty and didn't need them. She scared me to death on my first visit. I went back twice after that to get my results of testing then I switched doctors. Terrible bedside manner.
