I have known Dr. Boo for years now, and I would have her manage all aspects of my health and wellness if possible. She is beyond kind, caring, and empathetic. She listens to what you have to say and she will work with you even in the direst of circumstances. I don't know where I would be if I hadn't been referred to her. Thank you Dr. Boo!!
