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!!

Dr. Boxer has been great. He and the whole group from front office personnel to back office personnel have been professional, efficient and caring. I was specially impressed by all the nurses in the infusion department with their level of care. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly and easily my calls were answered and dealt with when I had a problem'

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.
