I have been a patient of Dr. Boucher for over two years. When ever there has been any question involving my care she would always seek outside information if needed. She was conservative with my medication and closely monitored me. She never made me feel rushed and always got right back to me when I called her. I feel Dr. Boucher always had my best intrest at heart. She always treated me as a person not just a patient. Dr. Boucher is a very smart woman and will leave no rock unturned when trea

My clinical picture is very complicated with two cancers and chronic disease requiring coordination with many other specialties such as Oncology, Hematology, Cardiology, and Gastroenterology. Dr. Boucher excels at staying in touch with other Physicians providing my care. She works hard to coordinate changes in my medication to prevent adverse or excessive side effects. Doing a recent MRI for abdominal pain she stayed late to speak with Radiologist pending my possible hospital admission.

When my PCP of 20 years retired 8 years ago, he recommended Dr. Boucher. I'm delighted to write that this was of the best referrals I ever received. She has been my quintessential quarterback as together we manage my chronic diseases and total wellness. Her intelligence and medical knowledge is only outshone by her compassion. When I need to get in touch with her she is available, and when I'm in the exam room or on the phone she makes me feel special.
