I was sent to Blue Ridge EmergeOrtho by my company. Dr. Boykin quickly diagnosed the problem and he took all the necessary steps - leading to surgery due to damaged/torn labrum on my right shoulder. Dr. Boykin's professionalism, detailed oriented, and caring personalty was shown during every single office visit. Based on my personal experience, I am very grateful that Dr. Boykin was the one that performed this surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Boykin's practice and service to anyone with shoulder problems. Please allow me to mention the names of a few other employees whose effort to improve my health condition was recognized. Dr. Chris - I am sorry I do not remember his last name. Special thanks to the Physical Therapists - Jeff and especially Vivian. Thank you indeed!

Had full shoulder surgery, along with repairing my rotator cuff and biceps tendon in early March. Prior to the surgery I experienced numerous sharp pains [ #5-#8 ] throughout the entire day. Post surgery, my pain was almost non-existent. My range of motion is where it was about 15 years ago. I called Dr. Boykin in April on my birthday to thank him for the overwhelming gift of no pain! I have recommended him multiple times to my friends and neighbors. He is truly a godsend!

I chose to speak with Dr. Boykin initially because of his exemplary academic background and professional training. When I met with Dr. Boykin, I discovered that he is an avid tennis player, as am I, with an amazing background with international professional tennis players. In completing my examination, Dr. Boykin advised that my shoulder condition was extreme. He recommended shoulder replacement, which was done. I recently had my six month checkup and the shoulder replacement is in perfect position. I have diligently adhered to the stretching, band and weight program which is a time consuming, but necessary requirement for recovery. I have almost full range of motion and flexibility. I anticipate full recovery. I am playing golf without pain and will soon resume tennis. I attribute this success to Dr. Boykin-his excellent judgment and surgical skill. I also found Dr. Boykin to be a compassionate, caring physician who truly cares about his patients. I am very grateful to him.

I have nothing but kudos for Dr. Boykin. I was able to have surgery just before the COVID virus appeared and consider myself very blessed. .Doctor explained the procedure to me and answered all questions I may have asked.Dr. Boykin has a very calming manner and seems to sincerely care re his patients. Generous w/his time, patient,and very reassuring and, I must add a jolly good sense of humour. I now have a new shoulder-the works-and am recovering very nicely.Am grateful that I can call on him or his PA when I might need to.Dr. B is awesome and .at top of my list to be recommended.

After 5 years of being bounced around from one doctor to another with all of them telling me they couldn't find anything wrong or you're too old at age 53 for surgery to do any good, I met Dr. Boykin. Dr. Boykin was nothing but positive yet realistic. I had a torn labrum with a cyst and born spurs in my shoulder. Doc assured me he could repair this with surgery and while I wouldn't be as good as new, I'm 53 after all, if I stuck to PT after surgery my pain level would be significantly reduced and I would regain most of the mobility in my arm. Just three months after surgery I am doing awesome and pain free. Thank you Dr. Boykin, I was in a very dark place before meeting you.

Dr. Boykin quickly diagnosed the source of significant pain in my right hip - a chunk of cartilage having broken free - and based on his consultation I agreed that arthroscopic surgery to remove the cartilage and clean up the hip joint was our best course of action. I rate the experience 10 out of 10 on all accounts from initial exam to surgery to follow up to responsiveness to questions to exit diagnostic.

I was referred to Dr Boykin for a total shoulder replacement after a failed rotator cuff repair by another Orthopedic MD. By the time I got to him it was a complete tear. Day to day living with zero activity was excrutiating pain, there was never a comfortable position day or night. Dr Boykin evaluated my shoulder and suggested a total reversal. I knew within the first 24 hours this surgery was different. The post op pain was not comparable with the first. The pain had been reduced to tolerable almost immediately. I am not 4 months out from that procedure and have little to no pain at all and am back to a range of motion I have not had in years. I cannot recommend Dr Boykin highly enough. It is without total reservation or hesitation I totally recommend Dr Boykin.

Dr. Boykin did an amazing job on my shoulder. He knew that my rotator cuff was torn farley significantly but once he began the procedure he also had to repair my labrum and 2 bicep tears. I am 5 months out from surgery and in the 95% and couldn't be more pleased. Between the time and care he and his PA took from before then to after surgery is truly remarkable. I know he is in high demand and it is hard getting in to see him. But the wait is worth it. I know several people that have used other doctors and have not had the success that I have. Thank you again Dr. Boykin and your staff for the remarkable work into getting me back to where I was before the accident.

Following a fall & a trip to Urgent Care in Jan. 2020, that left me with a shoulder injury; I was told to see an orthopedic doctor. I was not given a name of who to see, so i went online to search for the best shoulder doctor in Asheville. Dr. Boykin's name appeared & after seeing he was given a 5 star rating, read over his reviews & saw where my GI Doc had been his patient & had given him an excellent review. So I called & made an appointment. He is an excellent doctor & very friendly & professional. Explained everything about my shoulder & how to treat & care for shoulder. I decided against surgery & he agreed with me. I had one session with PT & followed ed up with monthly visit with Dr Boykin until he discharged me. Told me to come back prn if shoulder ever bothered me again. I gave Dr. Boykin a 5 star rating but would have given him many more stars if allowed. He is the best & his office staff is great too. I highly recommend him to anyone with shoulder problems.

Excellent experience with Dr. Boykin as he diagnosed my knee injury as a bucket handle meniscus tear. He repaired the injury by way of arthroscopic surgery. The surgery went extremely well, and I had only mild pain and/or discomfort for a few days following the surgery. After that, I only experienced occasional minor discomfort for the next few weeks. It has been less than two months since the surgery, and I am doing extremely well -- the recovery has been amazing. I am now back to using my injured leg as if it had never been injured. I'm grateful that Dr. Boykin was responsible for repairing the most severe meniscus injury that one could have. I very highly recommend him. I have absolutely no complaints about him or the care for which he provided me. In fact, all I have is excellent things to say about him and the care for which he provided me. He is an excellent doctor.

Dr. Boykin did surgery on my right shoulder in September 2019. I first injured it 35 years ago and did not get it treated. I ended up with limited range of motion and constant discomfort. After reinjuring it I sought help at the Blue Ridge Bone and Joint. I was concerned that having an old injury in addition to the new tears would create a poor outcome but, I am thrilled to say that my shoulder is pain free and I have complete range of motion! Thank you Dr. Boykin !! He is truly the BEST!!
