Would highly recommend, have been seeing Dr. Boiskin for 10 years - great bedside manner, spends time to discuss your issues and concerns. Doesn't issue/prescribe unnecessary tests or medications. Great staff as well.
in Carlsbad, CA |
Dr. Boiskin's staff are very cordial. My waiting time was minimal. Dr. Boiskin has a wonderful bedside manner and was very thorough explaining to me my situation. He spent an extraordinary amount of time with me, probably more than any other doctor I've seen in recent memory. He gets 5 stars in my book.
in Chula Vista, CA |
Dr Boiskin is very friendly and understanding. His knowledge of my kidney problem was dead on, and continue to offer the conservative care that I like to have. We was not eager to offer pills and unnecessary procedures to make it appear that he was doing something for me as most patents are a custom to receiving at a Dr visit. Everything that he told me was comforting and at a competency level that My family and I could understand. The Dr. welcomes your every question. I will recommend him.
