She has been the best doctor I have ever been to. We met her after a terrible accident that took our daughter when I was 31 weeks pregnant. I was at the hospital waiting to give birth and all other doctors never even talked to me, just told me what we were doing. Dr. B came in, sat down and explained everything. She delivered Harper the next day. I am so grateful we happened to cross paths, she is now my regular OB and she is doing my prenatal care for my rainbow baby.

I booked an appointment with Dr Boswell for fertility issues & patiently waited over a month to get it. After waiting the month I arrived to my doctors appointment (early as requested) & patiently waited over an hour to be seen. Her assistant came in and let me know they couldn’t get ahold of the doctor & didn’t know when she’d return & did not have another physician to see me. I waisted another month in my infertility journey to be seen my Dr Bowswell. I’d recommend going elsewhere.

I like Dr. Boswell a lot. However, she is so busy, I never see her, and always end up seeing someone else in her office. Even though I am a 'patient' of Dr. Boswell, I haven't seen her in probably 3-4 years.

I saw Dr. Boswell when I conceived my first child last year. I decided on her because of her great reviews. She was too busy to ever see me. I only saw her twice during the entire 9 months. She didn't do delayed cord clamping like I asked. She showed up two minutes before I pushed baby out, left immediately after, and I never saw her again. Terrible experience. Would never go back to her again.

Dr. Boswell was my OB she also delivered my daughter. She was willing to work with me with my birthing plan even though I was a high risk.
