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.

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.

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.
