Excellent Doctor for back pain and Orthopaedic Surgery. He is very good at discussing the treatment options and expected outcomes. He performed surgery on my lower back and the results have been excellent.
in Hilton Head Island, SC |
I would recommend Dr. Boatright because of his educational training and years of experience. He is caring, positive, personable and goes the extra mile to ensure that no stone has been left undone. He contacted all of my current and previous doctors(5 years) to ensure he had the accurate information on my condition before surgery. I do not believe any other surgeon would have taken the time to find out about my bone cancer treatments. I am 99.9% healed today.
in Bluffton, SC |
I highly recommend Dr. Boatright. He communicates effectively, spends time with his patients, and does surgery as a last resort IF he thinks the patient is a good candidate who will benefit from the surgery. I just think he's wonderful.
in Hilton Head, SC |
Dr. Boatright gave me my life back. After months of excruciating pain up and down my leg and in my back, he performed surgery and I am not living again. I am more than 100%. I would strongly recommend him to anyone experiencing back pain.
