i really like him and his ability to talk to people and listen but he is ridiculous to not want to give his patients pain med when they need it he is the only dr i know that acts like he is scared to help a patient in pain out, and he tells them to go to pain clinic if they need just a simple muscle relaxer

Dr. Boyd's office is a joke. He prescribes adderall like it is candy. He is does unnecessary blood work and x-ray's, urinary test. I knew somebody that just had open heart surgery. He said he was going to do blood work to check to see if she was holding fluid. He staff called the next day and said he was going to call a prescription in for a latex, but she was already taking one, that was prescribed by her cardiologist.

Been a patient for a very long time and love Dr Boyd and his outstanding facilities and extensive knowledge and friendliness. He has X-ray, blood work, PAD, and other special testing in his office so you can almost always get all you need in one convenient place and can get results either at the time of the visit or within a day or two. Would recommend Dr Boyd to anyone and everyone.

Went for an immunization, the office was in extreme need of an update, looked like it hadn't even been wiped down since Regal 9 could still fill the parking lot. Took an hour and a half for a shot WITH an appointment. I don't think there was air conditioning on and even if it wasn't I wouldn't wait that dingy air circulating to me. Building (inside and out) is in desperate need of attention as well as their records (paper records). Also seemed to have plenty of staff yet no one to help you

Doctor Boyd's staff is horrible. I have been waiting for 5 days for a CT scan that the insurance has already certified and Shawna at Dr. Boyd's office has been informed that insurance has certified the CT scan.
