Patient Comments (4)

One of the sharpest physicians I have ever seen. Very meticulous in collecting past and present medical history. Someone who will identify the most likely cause of problems without running useless battery of tests or unnecessary drugs.

Dr. has a rather condescending manner.He gives the impression of always being in a hurry and leaves the impression that he doesn't have the time to answer questions.

I have seen/talked to Dr. Bolen 4 times in a period of 6 months. Every time we spoke he acted as if it was the first time he had heard of my symptoms. None of my symptoms have been resolved.
