What People Say About Dr. Michael Boxer, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I consulted Dr Boxer for a second opinion and he was a good deal more thorough and interested than the doctor who first treated me. He prescribed several additional tests and discussed them with me in detail. Quite on his own, he reached out to me two years later to follow-up. To boot, Dr Boxer is one of the kindest, most insightful diagnosticians I've ever encountered. He is a treasure in our community.

Went to Dr Boxer 2 yrs ago for blood clots (DVT). Some tests and medication kept me out of surgery. He has the ability to figure out not only what the physical body needs, but also what a human being requires during a traumatic moment in this very fragile thing called life. One of the top 3 people I've met in my life. Thank you Dr. Boxer for being excellent in your field of expertise, and for being the kind of man I aspire to be.

I've known Dr Boxer now for 11 years. I was diagnosed with ALL with stage 4, two weeks to live. Dr Boxer is such a pleasant, knowledgeable and concerned doctor and took upon himself to help me become cancer free in 60 days!. Miracle happened! I remember when I was admitted to St Joseph and hadn't seen him for over 24 hours. Someone forgot to tell him I was here and waiting. He eventually came and, apologized for not knowing I was here, and even gave me a silk rose! Awesome doctor. Thanks.

My personal experience with Dr. Boxer has been phenomenal in every way. He is a terrific doctor and a wonderful person. He genuinely cares about me and insures I receive the appropriate care. His team as well as the infusion clinic are also exceptional caregivers.

Dr. Boxer literally saved my life from Hodgkin's lymphoma. He is warm, wise, and highly skilled. He is also the finest person that I've ever met.

I met Dr. Boxer some years back while going in for back surgery - I have Factor V Leiden - a blood clotting disorder. I just saw him again this last September - November as I had massive blood clots. He has a WONDERFUL bedside manner and is VERY caring. When I have needed to leave messages for him, it is HIM that calls me back, not his staff - very impressive. He is a VERY good man and I highly recommend him!!

I have been a long time patient of Dr. Boxer's and I will never forget my first appointment. He came from the back out to the waiting room and called my name. That told me right then what I needed to know. Dr. Boxer is the most caring, compassionate, and understanding doctor I have ever been too. Thank you Dr. Boxer for your caring and compassionate ways and besides that you are a great professional. I truly appreciate all you too for me and for others..........

After my first acute episode of Iron Deficiency anemia, which required emergency hospitalization and blood transfusions, Dr. Boxer, was the on-call physician at the hospital. I needed to understand why I suddenly developed this disease but Dr. Boxer was unable to help me. My primary care doctor was my source of information as well as advising me to search for answers. Dr. Boxer and his staff are unable/unwilling to provide follow-up. My Labs can sit for months without being monitored=scary.
