Dr. Peter Boehm Jr performed a two level spinal fusion in my lower back on August 23, 2019. I can't thank him enough for helping me in one of the worst moments of my life. He has always been polite at every visit and answers every question I may have. He was very conservative and tried every nonsurgical treatment before performing the spinal fusion. He along with all the othsr doctors that were on his team during my surgery were phenomenal. I couldn't have asked for a more professional team of doctors. My appointments have always been on time. One thing I really liked about doctor Boehm, he will tell you the truth even if its not what you want to hear. Sadly after a period of time, some of my pain returned. Dr Boemh wasted no time in trying to find the problem. It appears my left hip is now messed up so its off to see an orthopedic surgeon. If the ortho is even half the Dr. That Dr Boemh is, I will be satisfied.

Excellent neurosurgeon. Patched up my spine after motorcycle accident. Unfortunately, his scheduling and support staff is terrible at follow on appointments. 2 1/2 month wait to get appointment with him. Staff does not respond to calls. I’ve been waiting over 6 months for spinal epidural injection to try to relieve pain. Erlanger system is way behind medical practices in Franklin TN area. Very disappointing. I suggest going elsewhere for continuing care, especially if you are in pain.

The staff wasn’t knowledgeable of prior reports. Nothing was ready and we had to wait for a lengthy time. I had to tell the MA how to find the report.

Love him he has done 2 back surgeries on me. I could barely walk when I had the first one. Had 100% success with the first one about 80 with the second one. He is a very nice and caring Dr.

I would not recommend this Dr., I had spine surgery in June without great results. Something happened to my fusion 6 months after surgery and getting past the rude staff to see a Dr. is almost impossible. After begging for 2 weeks to see a Dr. I finally ended up going to the ER and am now in the process off finding a new Dr.

I had surgery on my back 7/28/16,last Thursday 7/8/16 I fell front a porch. I called the office n was on hold seem like forever. The lady I needed to speak with and I left a message as to what had happen. Well today is 7/12/16 and still yet no one has returned my call. Dr. Boehm Jr.Is a great doctor. But the receptionists are rude. And now can't even get a return call.

Dr. Peter Boehm Jr. did my back surgery. I really like his bed side manor and feel he did an excellent surgical procedure from the first visit to post surgery. He explained my options and what to expect during and after surgery. I would recommend him.

I cannot praise this physician enough. I am 3 years post ruptured brain aneurysm and subarachnoid hemorrhage. He is very nice, skillful, and the best neurosurgeon. Chattanooga is very blessed to have him here and also Erlanger Hospital. I would not be alive if it weren't for him and Erlanger Hospital. I have been in nursing over 30 years and I am very knowledgeable about healthcare.

Since his office was bought out by Erlanger Hospital it has been total chaos! Getting a follow up appointment is disappointing to say the least. I had surgery which didn't go well at all. Spent 16 days in ICU with more difficulties to follow. I was rescheduled 5 times by his office. Excuse was he has a surgery to do and we need to reschedule. Not enough staff for 13 doctors. He doesn't explain procedures and precautions very well. FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR...

i was very disappointed in Dr Boehm Jr's bedside manner. He wasn't concerned about my health issue and it seemed he just wanted to get to his next patient. Don't expect any follow up either...... Too bad he did not inherit his fathers genuinely kind and caring personality and demeanor. From my experience I would not recommend him. Go to another dr.
