in Wrightsville, PA |
Everything concerning my visit (for a molar extraction) went like precision clockwork. I completed the on-line forms at home. Scheduling was via phone and the day of I came into the office. The staff was friendly and very efficient. When I was called there was no fooling around or wasted time. Dr Boyle did not waste time, was extremely efficient, competent and focused. I have felt little pain and little swelling. If I need any more dental surgery I will absolutely go to Dr Boyle.
Shrewsbury, PA |
Great experience from the initial phone call to the discharge. Very caring. Dr. Boyle is excellent. I will go back to him if need be in the future.
in Windsor, PA |
Dr. Boyle was great. Very professional, fast, and courteous. He got right to the point about what I needed during my review. Operation of removing 4 wisdom teeth went better than I had expected. Although I had 2 impacted only one required stitches due to Dr. Boyle's expertise. I lost no additional teeth which was surprising to me. I highly recommend him for your oral surgery and have already recommended him to one of my coworkers. I couldn't be happier with his work.
in York, PA |
Very informative about my situation and the process that needed to be done. Did an excellent job on the procedure ,had very minimal pain if any in the days following.Job well done.
in York, PA |
Dr. Boyle removed my granddaughter's 4 impacted wisdom teeth and 4 additional teeth per orthodontist for overall improvement with braces. My 14 year old granddaughter was a bit apprehensive, but Dr. Boyle allayed her fears. He explained the procedure in detail and advised her what to expect. She did extremely well post-op, no excessive pain and quick recovery! I would highly recommend Dr. Boyle to my family, friends and neighbors!
in Thornton, PA |
Dr. Boyle was courteous and caring with regard to my situation. Procedures/options were explained to me. Staff was also caring and understanding-- they all had time for me. Thank You so much Dr. Boyle for taking care of me.
in York, PA |
Had a good experience with Dr. Boyle. Had anxiety over pulling a tooth. He assured me I would be okay and I was. Didn't hurt a bit. Thanks Dr. Boyle
York, PA |
Dr. Boyle is very nice and fun, he completed my surgery pretty quickly and I had no complications. Overall a great experience.
in York, PA |
Dr. Boyle and his assistant Kayla L were both wonderful during every visit I had. Dr Boyle recommended I got all 4 wisdom teeth out, and explained why also. The procedure was completely painless and the recovery process was flawless and I believe both are because of Dr. Boyle and his staff. I would highly recommend this surgeon to anyone and everyone!
in York, PA |
I had a great experience with Dr. Boyle. He was very personable during my consult and put me at ease answering any question I had with having sedation for the first time. His staff was really friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend him (and having been recommending him) to my friends who need their wisdom teeth out.
in Dover,PA |
Great Surgeon! Dr. Boyle extracted my wisdom teeth and placed 2 implants. I have jaw problems and I am always concerned with having my mouth open for a long time. It Couldn't be any easier, Dr. Boyle and his staff were very friendly and professional. I am now pain free, and most of all have my smile back. I highly recommend this place!!
Lancaster, PA |
Can't say anything about Dr Boyle's bedside manner because I didn't actually meet him (I was the driver for my adult Daughter's wisdom teeth removal appt). She describes him as stand-offish. Polite but not friendly. I can say that his clinical work is excellent. She was in and out in just over an hour (4 impacted teeth removed). She had virtually no swelling, pain was controlled with OTC meds, healing is looking good. Also, his staff are excellent. Kind, patient, thorough and very competent.
Rockville, MD |
Unwilling to give me a prescription for pain and antibiotics. In pain for a week.
in York Haven, PA |
Loved my experience! Got all four of my impacted wisdom teeth removed. Staff was polite and walked me through all my insurance information. Dr. Boyle was fantastic! He's a little sarcastic, but so am I so we got along famously. He explained everything in complete detail before I went under. I woke in zero pain and didn't even know I had surgery. I slept most of the day and eating was of course a chore. I didn't get one single dry socket and I healed quickly. Best surgery experience I ever had
NO beside manner, very little communication , I wouldn't recommend him ever. Staff is fabulous caring kind pleasant.
in Hanover pa |
I was just in there to get a simple tooth pulled and every question I asked him he had a smart as* answer for it he told me to just take Ibprofuen but a week later jaw is still in pain. Just save your mouth and avoid going to this guy.
York, PA |
Not willing to see patient in pain on a Saturday. Office staff asking for insurance card before explaining how the discount program works. FYI--Ask how much the discount will be before handing over your card. Office staff couldn't be nicer but will be seeking new oral surgeon in future.
in Lewisberry, PA |
The implant coordinator is not professional, truthful or efficient. The billing staff and insurance office do not return calls. I have left voice mail messages 5 times, with no response.
