    in Layton, UT |
    I can't say enough about Dr. Bossart and his staff, for the excellent care I received. I had seen 4 different Dr.'s who had misdiagnosed me with hemorrhoids. After 2 weeks of excruciating pain, I was referred to Dr. Bossart. His office told me to come in immediately. Once there, Dr Bossart knew instantly that I had an abscess and sent me straight to the hospital for emergency surgery. His professionalism and caring bedside manner are unbeatable. I highly recommend him! 10 Stars!

    Dr. Bossart was very comfortable to work with. He was professional and caring about my concerns. His fellow and assistants took great care of me.

    Too bad there aren't 10 stars. Dr. Bossart's bedside manner is TOP NOTCH. Caring. Concerned about me. Took time to explain everything throughly. Explained the procedure step by step without sugar coating how painful a shot would be. He was EXTREMELY generous with his time. My doctor called him to see if he could do the procedure and he wasn't even at his office that day. He was finishing at the hospital and met me at his office. I was desperate and SO grateful he agreed to extend his day for me!

    Had surgery the day he left for a week long vacation. The next morning I passed out in my bathroom; it looked like a crime scene. Since he was totally unavailable there was no one will to take responsibility for doing anything about my blood loss, I suffered for six months, finally have IV iron. That was done by my primary care Dr. IN his office I cannot count the number of times I lay there...in that embarrassing "pose"...butt in air for as long as 45 minutes. Nope. Not "my kind of Dr".
    We are sorry to hear of your difficulties. Our office strives for excellence and we want you to receive the best possible care so we have reviewed your experiences with our staff for any changes we can make to serve you better. Ano/rectal issues are very painful and often embarrassing. Please know we always have someone on 24 hour call to answer your important questions.

    Excellent choice for hemorroidectomy.
    Thank you for your kind response. Hemorrhoids can be tough. We are glad that you are well.
    I had Hemmorhoids that had been bleeding for quite some time so my doctor referred me to Dr. Bossart. I wished I had never gone! He took care of the Hemmorhoids but without ANY anesthetic of any kind & I was in terrible pain! I told him I was about to pass out but he kept going. After he finished I had to wait to walk until I had myself back under control, as I kept feeling like I was going to pass out & crying. I cried the whole way home, 100 miles away! Worst experience ever!!
    Thank you for your feedback, we have noted your response. We want all of our patients to have the best possible care. Hemorrhoids are extremely painful, before and immediately after treatment, but all procedures receive appropriate anesthesia. We hope that we may be able to win your favor again, as your experience is not indicative of our patient care standards. Please call our office if there is something we can do.
