After an injury to my ankle, I saw Dr. Boullion within two days. He was very pleasant and attentive.to my needs and I immediately felt very comfortable with him and knew I was in good hands. The staff were all so nice and personable. I highly recommend Dr. Boullion and will continue to be a patient with this practice.

Dr. Boullion was absolutely amazing! Had a really serious Pilon fracture and he did an amazing job putting me back together! The x-rays look excellent and the bone looks to be coming back together great! I'm up walking around now thanks to him, when 3 months ago my foot was off to the side with the bone out the side of my leg. Very caring and takes time to explain things with patients and answer any questions they might have. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor to put me back together!

I first met Dr. Boullion as a result of an automobile accident. He was the physician who did the surgery on my left leg which had a shattered tibia, I needed a plate and screws put in my leg so that I would be able to function again. His staff was very knowledgable and courteous. If i had a question or problem they would take care of it. Setting up appointments was easy and hassle free. I would recommend Dr Boullion to all my friends and family if they needed his expertise to fix a problem.

Dr. Boullion did a wonderful job putting my shattered elbow back together. He and his staff have been supportive in every way.
Our practice aims to deliver the highest quality patient care. We love to hear about these positive experiences. Thanks for sharing this feedback with us!
Little River, SC |
I had to be worked into the schedule which they did with ease (or it appeared that way to me, probably not on their end). Doc was pleasant, knowledgable, answered all my questions and took the time to make me feel comfortable with my treatment plan. The office staff and, especially, his assistant are the friendliest staff I've ever come across in a physician's office.
Thank you for taking time to leave these kind words and giving us a great score! Our dedicated staff takes great pride in serving the Myrtle Beach community.
Concord, NC |
I was involved in a serious car accident that resulted in many fractures. Dr Boullion took the time to listen to me and help make the best decision for me. I was able to avoid surgery altogether and the bones healed nicely. I felt I was well taken care of Dr Boullion, Dr Barber and Amanda Strickland. I will definitely recommend Dr. Boullion and his staff in the future.
We strive to provide the highest quality in patient care. Thank you so much for sharing this story with us!
in Little River, SC |
Dr. Boullion and his team have been amazing throughout this whole process. After being in an accident it has been refreshing to have Dr. Bullion and Amanda who have made sure that I am comfortable and that I know what's going on and what I have to look forward to. I am thankful to have them through this difficult time.
Thank you for giving us a great score! Our dedicated staff takes great pride in serving the Myrtle Beach community.

My son was in an motorcycle accident in August 2016 and I must say Dr. Boullion & his PA Amanda Barber are a blessing! My son has had many surgeries and every one of them Dr. Boullion has explained everything and even took the time to call me personally after each one. Very professional and personal!!!
Thank you for taking time to leave these kind words about Dr. Boullion and Amanda Barber. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. We are so glad to hear that you had such a personalized experience with our team.
in Murrells Inlet, SC |
Following anterior hip replacement surgery performed by Dr. Boullion I had an excellent recovery. On subsequent follow-up visits to his office his staff were all very professional and caring. Dr. Boullion showed a genuine interest in my recovery, and took time to answer any questions.
Thank you for the positive feedback. We appreciate the kind words.
in North Myrtle Beach, SC |
After a severe tibia plateau fracture, Dr.Boullion was reassuring, explained procedures throughly, accessible and very kind. Throughout I trusted him and his PA. Amanda Barber to do everything possible to put my leg back together. They did and the recovery has gone well over this past year. I definitely recommend him as a superior trauma orthopaedic surgeon.
in Calabash, NC |
Doctor Boulion is a life saver and a very caring person God bless him.
in Myrtle Beach, SC |
great doctor which makes him a very busy one. If you don't mind the wait you should be okay.
in Longs, SC |
Took good care during surgery. I have two broken legs as well as a broken pelvis and he refused to give me pain medicine other than Tramadol which does not help. I have had to manage my pain with Goody powders and Vodka, which is very unhealthy but I could not stand the pain. Even after I made the office aware of this problem he would not even call and discuss the situation with me. I have never suffered this much in my life. I also have never seen him since I've been going to office.
