The lesson I learned is that before your visit, try your best to get a price estimate first. I went in as a new patient, arrived on time but had to wait for almost an hour before being seen. The doctor spent barely more than 15 minutes with me while also checking a different patient in another room, he suggested some checkup that sounds pretty expensive to me which I declined. Later, I received a bill of over $260 that I need to pay with the new patient fee over $125 for little work on their end (I am on a high deductible $3000 plan). They never apologized for my almost an hour wait, I guess my time is worth nothing to them. I encourage all reviewers to share the price you end up paying to help other patients to find out which clinic is more cost-effective. Would any of us buy clothes or food without knowing prices beforehand? Only doctors and insurance companies set up a lot of hurdles preventing us from knowing their prices to put us at disadvantage.

Dr. Bosworth and his team are the utmost professionals. The whole process of fixing my deviated septum was flawless. Any questions I had were always easily answered, the process and timeline was laid out prior with clear instructions, and the actual surgery and recovery was as smooth as possible. Great group and I would highly recommend.

Dr. Bosworth was the best! I can’t express enough how grateful I am that we chose his practice. I need some way so i feel like he has really saved my son’s life. We went to him for a second opinion and discovered my son had very enlarged adenoids. He then didn’t the procedure and no one cannot believe how big of a difference it has made ! He was also very professional and so great with kids . I feel incredibly thankful that we found such an excellent doctor.

Dr. Bosworth was very personable and explained everything very well taking a great deal of time with me. He was also very thorough with his diagnosis and preparing me eventually for surgery. Prior to surgery, he and his satff worked with me setting eveything up and explained all the in and outs of what to expect prior to, during, and after my surgery. Dr. Nosworth and his staff were great and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Bosworth removed my preschooler's adenoids. He is a caring person and incredible doctor. All the people working in the office were super helpful and organized. I know this kind of procedure is routine, but Dr. Bosworth and his staff gave us all their attention. We felt very well taken care of.

Dr. Bosworth did my 8 yr olds surgery. He removed his tonsils and adenoids. He suffered many years with snoring and apnea but after his surgery he doesn't wake up at night anymore. He's a happy camper! Definitely would recommend him to my family and friends. His bedside manner is great. My son said Dr. Bosworth is very cool and his favorite doc. As a parent its always nerve wracking whenever you hear your child needs surgery but he put our fears to rest and overall it was a great experience.

Dr Bosworth is a very kind and caring Dr. He asks pertinent questions to solve your issues and he’s a very good listener. He relates very well to his patients. Scheduling was very easy. The medical assistants are wonderful. The office is is very new and very immaculate. I had a mid morning appt so I had to wait a little longer than usual but Dr Bosworth still gave me the appropriate amount of time. So no problem in waiting. I highly recommend him!!

Dr. Bosworth is an amazing ENT. I went to him for chronic sinusitis, and he was extremely thorough in his explanation of what was going on and how to surgically fix it. Post - op care was amazing as well. He was thorough, and very caring to ensure a full recovery. I have never felt rushed or dismissed. Each visit, he took the time to sit and chat with me about any questions or concerns I had. Wait sometimes was longer post-op, but worth it to me.

I have been a patient of Dr Bosworth’s for many years. He has treated me for vertigo, hearing loss, LPR, and sinus issues. This past October he performed sinus surgery that included correcting a deviated septum, opening up my lower sinuses, and cleaning up displaced turbinates. The surgery was performed under general anesthesia in an ambulatory surgical center. It was probably one of the best things I’ve ever done. The post-operative period was virtually painless there was no packing.

Dr. Bosworth did ear tubes/adenoids surgery on my son, and sinus surgery on me. In both instances we were very impressed with his communication skills and surgery skills. He makes sure his follow-up visits are thorough. The medical assistants in his office are very kind people, too.

"Dr. Bosworth is always so calming" says my 11 year old, a patient of Dr. Bosworth's, "He's been my favorite [doctor] ever since I met him and he made me feel better about having my first ever surgery." My son liked Dr. Bosworth from our very first visit which I found heartwarming. His bedside manners are incredible and he is especially good with kids - not cold and mechanical, just a warm loving human. If my son ever becomes a doctor, it is because of Dr. Bosworth.

Dr. Bosworth was absolutely amazing. He called me with updates, kept me in the loop and took as much time as was needed to answer any questions or concerns I had. The day of surgery he talked with me before and after and made me feel a lot better, as like most I was a bit nervous. The whole staff at the surgery center and Dr. Bosworths office were great too! Just a good all around guy.

Dr. Bosworth and staff are friendly, welcoming and professional.. I was able to schedule all appointments with ease. For years I had issues with breathing through my nose and Dr. Bosworth took the time to examine my nose and review all options. I ultimately got a septoplasty and turbinite reduction (nasal surgery) and it was life changing! Dr. Bosworth has helped improve the quality of my life 100%. Surgery was well explained, short, nearly painless, and recovery was short. Highly recommend!
