Dr.Boyd does an outstanding job
Patient | November 3, 2017

Experience was so positive I'm switching my husband to Dr. Boyd.
Patient | October 24, 2017

It was a positive experience from beginning to end.
Patient | October 23, 2017

Was a good experience. I can think of any.
Patient | October 20, 2017

Never enough time for questions or other concerns- 9. Difficult to spend time.
Patient | October 20, 2017

Dr Boyd explained exactly what he was doing and was very thorough.
Patient | October 16, 2017

Great Doctor!
Patient | September 25, 2017

Dr. Boyd is one of the very few doctors I trust!
Patient | September 22, 2017

Dr. Boyd is a wonderful doctor!
Patient | September 22, 2017

dont send me anymore surveys
Patient | September 5, 2017

The best health care anyone could give is patience.
Patient | August 28, 2017

This is the second time I've seen Dr. Boyd and i've recommended him to several friends and family. I think he is wonderful
Patient | July 31, 2017

Dr. Boyd is tops.
Patient | July 21, 2017

This doctor was not engaged with the patient at all. Nothing good came of this visit after a long drive to get to this office. An elderly patient is now even more depressed because this doctor could not take the time to read her records and recommend a treatment for her. The only treatment recommended were ones that were already tried so he didn't even bother to read her records.
Patient | July 19, 2017

Poor bedside manner - no introduction.
Patient | July 19, 2017

Dr. Boyd is too much of a hurry to see next patient.
Patient | July 19, 2017

This was not a good experience for me. I felt like I was rushed in and out of the office. The provider did not seem to care what I had to say. He cut me off when trying to explain a problem I had been having. He also seemed to have an agitated tone when speaking to me. I'm not sure if he was just overbooked and/or having a bad day, but I feel someone in his profession should show at least a small amount of care and compassion for his patients and I didn't see any of that from him.
Patient | July 11, 2017

The provider came into the exam room without a name badge and did not introduce himself.
Patient | July 3, 2017

Dr. Boyd is thorough and very confident of his abilities. He made me feel at ease while cutting on me.
Patient | June 22, 2017

Dr. Boyd is a man of action. I appreciate his quick response to my needs and the respect he gave me. He's very good at what he does. I will never go to anyone else for my Dermatology needs.
Patient | June 17, 2017

I spent a total of 3 minutes with the doctor. He was clearly in a rush and dismissive. I still had questions but felt rushed out the door.
Patient | June 12, 2017

Dr. Boyd was in such a hurry that I didn't even remember to ask a few other questions.
Patient | May 24, 2017

He seemed very rushed and I did not have opportunity to ask questions. The whole appoitment lasted less than 15 minutes from the time I parked my car to back in my car to leave.
Patient | May 18, 2017

he took a skin tag off and told me I would receive a report from pathology and to date have not.
Patient | May 3, 2017

I have recommended Dr. Boyd to several other people.
Patient | May 3, 2017

The whole experience felt rushed and the Doctor was obviously in a hurry. I understand they see about 50 to 60 patients each Friday.
Patient | May 1, 2017

Extremely considerate care.
Patient | April 24, 2017

A friend recommended Dr. Boyd and I would definitely recommend him.
Patient | April 10, 2017

What I came in for turned out to be nothing. However, in a quick look over (like 30 seconds) identified two other issues, one of which could have become very serious. Very glad I went.
Patient | April 1, 2017

I felt very rushed this was my first visit. I expected a more thorough exam - all over body scan. Dr. seemed rushed. I came for a place on my lip, he looked at it & said skin cancer very abruptly.
Patient | March 23, 2017

Patient | February 28, 2017

THe visit felt rushed. I thought since this was the first time going in a long while I would get a full body check & that didn't happen. Partly my fault.
Patient | February 23, 2017

No complaint.
Patient | February 23, 2017

Very good experience; Dr. Boyd WONDERFUL!
Patient | February 22, 2017

Seemed to be rushed for time, on most of my visits.
Patient | February 20, 2017

I could tell Dr. Boyd was very busy, but I felt he spent adequate time with me and he answered all my questions. He was friendly, direct and efficient
Patient | February 20, 2017

Dr. Boyd needs to take a deep breath and relax before he goes in to see a patient. I felt like he was in such a rush to get the exam and procedure over with.
Patient | February 5, 2017

Patient | February 1, 2017

Always in a rush! Do not feel that he examines my body for skin cancers as he should.
Patient | January 27, 2017

I have the high regards for Dr. Boyd and his staff.
Patient | December 19, 2016

Everything was good.
Patient | November 22, 2016

Dr Boyd found an unusual form of melanoma above my eye and quickly diagnosed. I'm very fond of him and highly respect his ability
Patient | November 22, 2016

Would have changed doctors if I could of -
Patient | November 17, 2016

Since this visit was to get a biopsy of a skin cancer, it didn't take long or require a lot of conversation.
Patient | November 2, 2016
