He and his staff could not have been more rude. They misdiagnosed me and led to years more suffering before I found an excellent neurosurgeon in Atlanta. I tell everyone I can, Do Not Go To Emory!!!

Saw dr Boulis in 2015 after a medical mishap from a procedure at UVA. We exhausted our searches at MUSC and Greenville, SC to fix the problem. He was patient, kind and made me laugh even though I was ready to amputate my leg. I had been a runner my entire life. Running days might be behind me but I’m able to take care and be involved with my family. Thank you Dr Boulis.

After reading good reviews, my wife made an appt which took months to see him. He advised that a spinal cord simulator would be the best solution and he specifically stated that she should not get her first rib removed which had a fracture. So we did what he advised and since he would not be able to implant the spinal cord Stimulator we went to a non Emory dr that he referred. My wife still had tremendous pain and we found a non Emory dr to remove her first rib. She feels better. Dont trust him.

I suffered for many years with trigeminal nerve pain. Dr. Boulis changed my life earlier this year after MVD surgery! I now baby sit my infant and toddler grandchildren twice a week. And I am going to visit Europe in a few weeks too!!! This is all something I never would have even considered 6 months ago! I too am now saying, "why did I not do this years ago????". Thank you so much Dr. Boulis. Sincerely, Vicki Fowler

I Presented with a debilitating neurological disorder that lead to nine months of misdiagnoses before I met Dr. Boulis, who brilliantly discerned my rare condition. Post surgery, I went from a bed-bound invalid with 24/7 burning pain from Trigeminal Neuralgia who lost 23 lbs & lived on opioids with NO quality of life to PAIN-FREE & active both socially & physically again. He literally gave me my life back! I will be eternally grateful!
