Patient Comments (4)
Anchorage, AK |
I would recommend Dr. Bossard to family and friends without hesitation or reservation. She was a fabulous surgeon and has a wonderful and friendly manner. She took the time to explain the procedure and possible outcomes, never did I feel hurried during the consultations and she specifically addressed my concerns regarding lifestyle and exercise outcomes. The office staff was excellent in their pre- and post-surgical followup.
Anchorage, AK |
Really took the time to explain everything that was happening at each of my appointments. Made sure to check if I had any questions. Very comfortable talking with her about uncomfortable symptoms.
