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 did my homework when searching for a neurosurgeon and Dr. Boehm lived up to his reputation as well as my expectations. I will use him again as well as send him referrals.

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.
