      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
