Dr. Boyd is caring, knowledgeable, and straightforward. He performed my minor tongue surgery and I had a quick recovery. I would recommend him to anyone.
Liked him very much , very professional

Stay as far away from this guy if you have throat cancer. He will slice you up until he has no more use for you. You will suffer more pain than you can ever imagine and your recovery time will be months. He is willing to cut so much out of your throat that you may not be able to ever eat solid food again. And once he realizes he can cut no more, he will throw you under the bus because you are financially worthless to him. Remember, the guy is an ENT specialist. Contact Barnes Jewish hospit

Did not specify needing up front Payment before surgery!!!Scheduled surgery then started receiving calls about amounts due before preop app!!!Hard to deal plus being REALLY SICK!!!!
in Washington, MO |
Excellent Physician!! Took over 45 minutes explaining my diagnosis and the outcome. I left feeling confident that I was in good hands and that I would be OK.
in Chesterfield. MO |
Misdiagnosed problem, had existing button trach 14 years, now had low oxygen at night. I asked for a regular trach tube at night. He told me to come back in a month! Even though I had proven low oxygen at night. Second visit, handed to prescription for wrong type of regular trach tube at end of visit. Wrong type of tube (I did not need balloon, I am not on a vent). Said Followup as needed. Medical records co-mingled with another patient with entirely different medical problems with new EMR

Could be more compassionate and explain diagnosis more clear. Always get 2nd and 3rd opinions. Great surgeon not so great at explaining diagnosis.
