    Dr. Boden performed a spinal fusion on me in 1996. I have had nothing but positive experience since then.

    This is the rudest, most arrogant, condescending medical person I have ever meet. His attitude seems to be, "Why are you bothering me?" He does not explain he does not talk more than to say a few grunts. I totally question his competence. Sure he presents a great public image, but he is so rude and disrespectful that why anyone would ever come back to him is beyond me. He does not even have rudimentary manners. We have, twice, experienced him just getting up and walking out. Very sorry person.
