I experienced pneumonia for first time in July. Dr. Boylan's conscientious care kept me out of the hospital and at home; I believe that home was the best place for me to recover. Thanks to Noreta Family Medicine and Dr. Boylan and Direct Primary Care.

A Very Positive Change in Primary Care!
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Boylan’s for years. I was referred by a friend in the healthcare industry working in the same hospital system. It was the first time I had a doctor who truly had my best interests, rather than the hospital’s, in mind. The only issues I had were those associated with group practices - billing, nurse call backs, turn over, etc. When Dr. Boylan told me she was opening a practice and explained to me the Direct Primary Care model, I was in. It coincided with the COVID-19 pandemic, and as my friends and coworkers were having a hard time finding care, I was having physicals, getting in for sick visits, and having my doctor answer her phone, or calling me back very shortly after leaving messages. I’ve also found by using Dr. Boylan’s radiology & pharmacy suggestions, I'm spending less money than filing through my group health insurance. I've referred friends equally pleased and surprised to have a physician as dedicated and caring as she is.

Ahead of the Game!
My wife loved how diligent and careful Dr. Boylan was with her entire course of care. She was very easy to contact and reach at any time. Her direct primary care model is beautifully simple and amazingly affordable. I would recommend her and her style of care to anyone!

She does not rush through appointments. The staff is very friendly. I loved the staff. However, Dr Boylan does not run tests. She just prescribes medicine based on what you tell her. I've even seen her walk back in with a reference sheet from Google. I've asked for a full physical and I still don't know if I've gotten one because what was supposed to be one turned into a session full of urging me to get the flu shot. I got a little bit of blood work done and that was it. Dr. Boylan asked me several times about the flu shot and was visibly agitated at my hesitance and then refusal to receive the shot. So the next time I had an issue I didn't even get an appointment or a follow up. When I called again I was told Dr. Boylan was notified that I needed to see her and just instructed the nurse to make a note of it. But no one ever reached out. I asked for a mammogram when I turned 40. She told me to wait until I was 45 to avoid "false alarms". I went to another doctor.

Do not waste your time or $ with this Dr. She is horrible and has no sympathy and will not help you. I have been in and out of hospitals racking up drs bills. I have proved her wrong with every diagnosis because she won't run the tests needed or follow up on diagnosis with emergency room visits. I have been sick all year, I have called the office and still no help. She thinks she knows it all, but she definetly has no clue nor desire to dig or help deeper, coming from a medical professional, myself. You have a degree, use it!

I have been a patient of Dr. Augustine (Dr. Boylan, now married) for 3 years and I think she's a very good family doctor. I'm 56 years old and she is without a doubt the best physician I've ever had. She has a very caring and professional attitude and takes extremely good care of my health needs. I would recommend her highly!
