Dr. Caren Borjeson has been amazing! Dr. Borjeson has operated on me numerous times and she has always been so kind, professional, caring and I've never had any issues or problems from any of the surgeries she's done on me. It gives me great piece of mind knowing she is the one taking care of me as I know I'm in good hands and fully trust her. I would highly recommend Dr. Caren Borjeson for any surgical needs.

Though I have already been through the operation I have to have AGAIN, Dr. Borjenson is the kind of Dr that you assume is good at surgery, because she is not good at being "HUMAN". Cold bedside attitude, and the whole office lacks courtesy, professionalism, or empathy or understanding of the "HUMAN" condition during the process. After reading many reviews, I am sorry and a bit scared that I have chosen this practice. The good Dr canceled a surgery, at the VERY last minute. NOT PROFESSIONAL

Dr. Borjeson is always very short on time when giving you a life and death diagnosis. She ran out of the hospital after surgery as she had her own physical therapy appt. to get to. She was referred to me from my GP who is an Osteopath, as is she. She referred me to an Oncologist who is also an Osteopath. His name had to be hand written in on one the business card for his practice. Appears to be a club of sorts. Not a good sign. Bills for $5429. not covered by our ins. have been a constant issue.

Dr. Borjeson did a great job on my hernia surgery about 5 years ago, it is holding up well. I have been referred to her by several other doctors and I highly recommend her.

I had an open inguinal hernia surgery from this dr. After I booked my surgery my own pcp was very upset with my decision to choose caren. I went through with surgery. As far as surgery I don't if she did good or bad...I'm not trained for that. The reason she gets a 1 star is the lack of preoffesionalism shown by her staff. They are a very rude staff and not helpful at all. I wouldn't recommend you to take your dog to her let alone your self
