Dr. Boahene was my cardiologist for decades and one of the best doctors I’ve ever had (and I’ve had many!!) He treats the WHOLE individual, not just their heart. Really loved him but then he “retired” and left Crouse.

I have been a patient of Dr. Boahene since 1996 due to sick sinus syndrome. He has the best bedside manner of any doctor I know. He asks about my family, since he knew me when my children were very young, and deeply cares for his patients. I also worked with him at University Hospital and he has always been an absolute professional. He is now retiring to teach back at University and I am so happy for him. I just want to say Thank you Dr. Boahene for being such a wonderful doctor and person. I will truly miss seeing you.
