I have been a patient of Dr. Boswell since 2010. I couldn't ask for a more complete physician in that he has been and still is very much involved in my condition and overall improvement from year to year. I have found him to be accessible through his staff and have always received answers to any questions I may have. He is easy to talk to and he listens to what I have to say. I would have no reservations about recommending him to family or friends.

I like him as he does not throw medicine at you! A conservative doctor!
