      in Oxford, MI |
      Dr. Boyd didn't listen when my daughter told him she needed medication for a UTI. She ended up in the hospital with a kidney infection. He also ignored her concerns about negative effects of her ADHD medication. Her new doctor, who specializes, was appalled when he heard what she'd been taking. The dosage prescribed by Dr. Boyd far exceeded what was appropriate and the side effects my daughter was suffering were common ones he should have recognized and addressed.

      Excellent care and "beside manner." I appreciate his approach to medicine being as natural as possible and using drugs as little as possible.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Boyd says...

      I am passionate about providing personal, high-quality care for my patients. I enjoy caring for a diverse community of patients, from newborns, to students and athletes, to and adults and the elderly. In addition to being a family practice physician, I am a team physician for Grand Valley State University, the Grand Rapids Griffins and Allendale High School.

      I completed my undergraduate training at the University of Michigan – Flint and went to medical school at the Wayne State University School of Medicine. From there, I completed my family medicine residency at Saint Mary’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI and a Sports Medicine Fellowship at Michigan State University. I started practicing at Metro Health Allendale in 2009.

      Dr. Boyd's Care Philosophy

      I am committed to giving my patients the best patient experience. I pride myself on staying on schedule with appointment times, because I know that their time is just as important as mine. I listen to my patients about their concerns and work with them to determine the best treatment plan for their healthcare needs. Another important goal of mine is to prescribe medication only when it is necessary. Additionally, I make sure to take the time to make personal phone calls with lab results in the 24-72 hours after having labs done.

      As a sports medicine physician, I see a lot of young and healthy individuals who are trying to recover from a sports related injury. However, that is not always the case. One aspect of both my family and sports medicine practices I am very proud of is helping patients achieve weight loss. I am dedicated to working with them to help them lose weight with diet and exercise because – in the long run – this will be better than medication.

      I also have a strong affiliation with Grand Valley State University, both from an athletic standpoint and being the medical director for the health center on campus.

      As both a Family Practice and Sports Medicine physician, I perform a lot of procedures in the office. Some of these procedures include fracture care, laceration repairs, incision and drainage of abscesses and skin biopsies. I am also experienced in performing ultrasound-guided injections of shoulders, hips and knees.

      I also offer my patients cutting-edge procedures – like PRP and TENEX – for chronic tendon injuries. Having the ability to perform these procedures right here in the office allows me to develop a treatment plan for patients that is flexible, convenient for patients and allows them to get back to living their life as quickly as possible.
