I was nothing more than a number to Dr Boorse, however his nurse practitioner Karen was absolutely AMAZING. If I needed surgery again, I would see Dr Harrison. Everyone I asked told me to see Dr Harrison, I should have listened.

Dr Boorse is an amazing surgeon and kindhearted person! I had sleeve gasterectomy My husband had hernia repair
I had a horrible surgery experience with Dr. BOORSE. He performed a laproscopic gall bladder removal and cut my inferior vena cava and small bowel. Additionally I have an incision that has not healed more than two months after surgery. His office wanted to operate again but I refused and have sought treatment else where. I attended four office visits after surgery and not one was with a doctor. I would not recommend Dr. Boorse ever.
