Dr. Boedefeld and his staff were so nice and helpful to me. He explained to me what was wrong and what treatment needed to be done. I am so pleased with the results. I highly recommend him. Thank you!!
St Louis, MO |
Worst experience of my life !! The Dr doesn't care about your pain and doesn't do the correct procedures that the insurance company approved . Chose what he wanted to do and lied about it just before anesthesia!! If you have anxiety or fears forget about the Dr or his staff helping you feel comfortable during the painful procedures!! Forget about getting return phone calls from the office if you ever have a problem .

I had horrible back pain for years. Dr. Boedefeld diagnosed my problem and gave me a series of injections that were extremely effective. I am much more active now.

Great experience!
in Chesterfield, Mo |
I usually never take the time to write reviews, but I have to for this office and staff. I have lived with pain for years, and have been to several doctors with no relief. Dr. Boedefeld really took time with me, and explained the treatment we agreed on. He was also very upfront that the treatment would take sometime to work. I am so happy to say that I am the most pain free I have been in years. It did take a few visits, but it really helped knowing this in advance.

Dr. Boedefeld and his staff were great! I was very anxious when it came time for my procedure, but they did a great job explaining everything that was going to happen. They were so patient with me. My pain is almost gone, and I am so grateful for everything they did for me.

One of the most caring doctors I've ever experienced. Took his time and explained everything to me. Wonderful experience all the way around. Will be telling everyone one I know in need of a pain doctor.

This was a horrific experience. I'm an anxious person as they knew before hand. That's why I chose to pay 100.00 to be sedated. They supposedly gave me versed i felt everything. I cried the whole time THE were sticking needles in my neck. Doctor was not very friendly nor seemed to care. Same with the nurses. Being sedated your nerves should be calm and THEY DID NOT CARE AT ALL that I was crying. Heartless staff couldn't believe it.
in O Fallon |
Would not recommend. He does not take the time to try and help you, I never got a call back and called several times. Does not try to understand what you are going through.
in St. Peter's, MO |
Excellent. Reviewed what was causing my pain with me and how the procedures provided would help. Amazing! No more pain.
in Hillsboro, MO |

I came in with my mri protruding and bulging discs, he was rude and treated me like a drug seeker. I'm far from that was just a victim of a car accident.
