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.
