Care Philosophy

Millions of people from all walks of life and all ages struggle with various types of non-healing skin wounds. These "problem" wounds fail to respond to standard treatments due to any number of often hidden, underlying issues. Our staff has been trained to identify and treat the diverse conditions that often upset the normal healing process. Working with the body's natural processes, we can inspire the healing of even the most persistent wounds.

Personal Bio

Dr. Boyle began his medical career in Santa Barbara, CA as a nurse's aide where he developed a caring and compassionate heart for the sick, wounded and disabled. After 6 years in this capacity he went on to medical school. He furthered his training in both Family and Aviation Medicine in the U.S. Army.  After 10 years of world wide, diverse military service, he returned stateside to complete a one-year fellowship at Duke University in Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Care. He continued his military service and became Chief Physician of the U. S. Army's only Wound and Hyperbaric Center in Augusta, Georgia. For 4 years he treated many battle-wounded soldiers along with more common types of problem wounds while serving as a special consultant to the Army Surgeon General.  After leaving the military in 2008, Dr. Boyle and family, relocated to Utah, where he continues his mission; to provide excellence in individual medical care with genuine compassion.

Dr. Boyle has elevated Wound Care to a Speciality by showing the necessity of proper wound care management to reduce infection, amputation and death.  From Dr. Boyle's unique skills set he brought to Utah's Medical Service bedside, hands-on wound care to residents of 15 different skilled nursing facilities, while teaching, training and guiding the nursing staff to improve overall prevention and care.  He also has worked closedly with Home Health and Hospice agencies to teach and train their nursing staff for how to best provide good wound care to their patients.  Three years later, he opened a private wound care practice which he named, 'Physician Wound Care' which is on the St. Mark's Hospital campus central building, 3rd floor above the ER,  where he continues to provide specialty care to those with Wound Care needs.

I really am impressed with Dr. Boyle's compassion and ability to make you feel important to him. I have never had a doctor that is so concerned with my care. I have been to other wound clinics over the last several years and the mostly have RN's running the show. There is a big advantage to having a Physician see you as your wound heals. I have been seeing Dr ,Boyle for the last 3 months, and would never consider going to anyone else for wound care. The staff is very competent and friendly.

We were very impressed from the first time we walked in everyone was so friendly and seemed so knowledgeable about the wound. Each time we came in everybody knew us and treated us like family. I was impressed with how pleasant the staff was and how well they handled phone calls and patients. I will tell everyone about them!

I have never met anyone like Dr. Boyle. I was so distressted about my wound as I had been both to St. Marks ER and IMC ER without an answer. St. Marks told me to go to Dr Boyle. He has been amazing! For 4 long months he patiently and kindly dressed my wound and always made me feel as if I was the only patient of the day. You'd be crazy not to go to him! His office staff makes you feel so welcome and comfortable. Honestly, you feel like family when you arrive and when you leave. Perfect! Perfect!
