Dr. Boyd is the very best neurologist I have ever seen for migraines. He has helped reduce the frequency and severity of my migraines significantly. He is so kind, caring, compassionate, and knowledgable. Very humble, yet an absolute expert and leader in the field. A model for best practice.

I have been a patient of Dr Boyd’s for a few yrs now and I have never had a dr who has shown so much compassion for me. He also took his time to figure out my headaches and why I have them. I couldn’t ask for a better dr.

I have seeing Dr. Boyd for nearly 5 years. I'm not sure how easy it is to schedule an urgent appointment as I haven't needed an urgent appointment. However, when I was in the hospital he was in meetings and had his NP come see me soon after he was called and he came to see me before the end of the day. He is extremely knowledgeable as to determine the best treatment for my migraines and pain. Since seeing Dr. Boyd, I have gone from 20+ headache days a month to only 2-3 days a month.

He is so smart and up on the latest research. I trust him to know when to fight and when the fight is coming to an end. He’s not just our doctor, he cares what happens to us as a family with a chronically ill member.

I was SEVERELY surgically injured by Dr. Boyd some years ago. I read the reviews here and I regret I did not find this site sooner to caution people about this doctor. I found he had injured someone before me the same way I was injured. I regret he still has access to people to cause injury. Do not use him for any procedure at all.

Arrogant. Moody. Shows no compassion. Acts suspicious of patients, not believing their genuine pain but instead treating them as if they were only looking for drugs to get "high."

This is one of the most difficult offices to deal with that I have ever visited. NO credit card/debit card or FSA/HSA card payments taken. Only 1 person who is not always available in the office, and poor billing with insurance. Add the fact that all Dr. Boyd wanted to do for migraines was to give more medication. Thanks for nothing.

I have been to Dr Boyd for my wife and find him impatient, condescending and unsympathetic. I would not go to her though I know my wife liked him a lot...at first anyhow.

He is caring and extremely sensitive to the needs of his patients. He is an excellent doctor. He also makes sure to always operate within the guidelines specified by law and to help you understand those if you are affected by them. Doctor Boyd has no problem working with you to find the best solution for your situation. His obvious main focus and purpose is to help people live good lives without being ruled by things like pain or chronic conditions.
