Dr. Boykin did an excellent job repairing my torn ACL. I appreciated his professionalism and accessibility.

The most knowledgeable Dr I have ever been to... Great bedside manner. Very professional and definitely gave me the correct diagnosis and treatment!
in Fletcher NC |
I saw Dr Boykin on 6/29/16 he diagnosed my problem and he and his staff went right to work. They got my surgery scheduled on Friday 7/1/16 if not I would have had to wait until at least till 7/5/16. The surgery went well and after what seemed like a long recovery I am on the way to full recovery. I want to thank him and Katie for their expert care and kindness.

Had torn rotor cuff surgery in May. Also had arthritis and torn bicep. Two weeks after surgery, started PT. Three months after surgery, swimming in the ocean and lifting 37 pound grandson over my head for slam dunks. . Couldn't ask for a faster recovery or a better surgeon.

Dr. Boykin has a record of successful surgeries; people who knew I was going to have knee surgery spontaneously offered their high opinion of his skills. Although it's only been 8 weeks since my meniscus cleanup, I am pain free, had an easy recovery, and am back to doing all normal daily activities. My ability to dance, hike and do yoga appears to be restored. Dr. Boykin was always friendly, courteous, thorough, kind, and a good listener every time I saw him, before and after surgery.

Funny...When I told all my soccer playing friends that Dr. Boykin was my surgeon for an ACL reconstruction nobody knew his name. I did some research and found out he worked with professional athletes on the National Ski Team. That was all I needed. I'm happy to report that my knee is coming along faster than I ever imagined, and I owe that to Dr. Boykin. I wouldn't hesitate a second to recommend him to anybody unlucky enough to rupture their ACL.
in Nebo, NC |
He had about as much time and respect for me as he would have had to a fly . I did not understand this, but I will never go back to this practice, nor would I recommend it to anyone I know. Boooooo
in Black Mountain, NC |
I would highly recommend Dr. Boykin. The facilities are easy to find, the staff is knowledgable and professional, and Dr Boykin maintained contact throughout and, communicated in a manner that was easily understandable and reassuring. My shoulder pain is now a thing of the past and I'm back to climbing and throwing a baseball with my son. I cannot thank Blue Ridge Bone and Joint enough, it was a great experience, and I would highly recommend this Dr and his staff.
in Sumter, SC |
The best orthopedist I have ever been to....more knowledgeable about the newest techniques. Great bedside manner and a caring Doctor!
in Horse Shoe, NC |
Dr. Boykin has preformed surgery on three of our family members and all have had excellent results. For myself he recommended physical therapy, which worked well. He is the type of doctor that doesn't opt for surgery unless necessary. We would highly recommend him.
