First time patient seeing this Doctor. Was not impressed. His bedside manners need major improvement. Did not go over entire history nor did he seem to care. Previous MRI's were sent for review. Prior doctor stated back was getting worse and this Doctor pushed for 3rd MRI. WOW. Makes me wonder what his intent is. Meanwhile I have been in pain well over a month, hard to do daily activities. If it were his mother, what would he do???

I’m not one who usually writes reviews but I had to rave about my experience. I have been in pain for so long and no one had ever been able to pin point what was actually causing the pain. Some doctors even tried to just prescribe medication. I don’t want that. It only masks the pain, it doesn’t help the true problem. Dr. Boedefeld was able to figure out what was causing my pain and how to treat it. Now it did take a couple of different types of injection treatments but he did it!! The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They answered all my questions and calmed my anxieties. They were always available to help during my 50 phone calls to the office. I highly recommend this pain management clinic. They all truly care.

Missed a fractured hip 5 times, gave me spinal Injection and couldn't understand why I was still In pain. Released me from hospital with the same broken hip. Could not walk or bear weight on left side but released me anyway treating me like a drug seeking low life I tried to explain I was only An elderly person tryin to walk but it didn't seem to matter. Very rude and began to tell me he saw me Walk and I had witness with me that informed him Otherwise. PLEASE SAVE Yourself the Degradation and humiliation and GO ELSEWHERE QUICKLY!!

I explaine to Dr. Boedefeld that I have received the steroid injections without any real relief, had the ablasion also with no relief. I felt like the injections were, once again, being forced on me, even though I know how I reacted from them and know my body. They acted like they didn't believe me that this procedure did not work for me and then treated me like I was an addict or something. I, like so many others, are not part of the opoid crisis, but unfortunately are treated as such.

Run far away. This doctor has no empathy for people in pain. He is disrespectful and does not listen. He doesn't believe patients are in pain. He will be the cause of patient suicides due to refusing treatment to those in chronic pain.

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.

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.
