Doctor Boles demonstrated to me that he was much more interested in his patient than the dollar. His was a second opinion, after another office wanted to operate, he told me to come back in two years for another examination! His office staff was great.

Its hard to find a doctors office like this. Caring, quick, efficient. The staff are really great and spend the time to explain why a test is important. They called me to remind me of my appointment on the phone themselves instead of a robo call. Dr Boles is really informative and explained results and options to me. I couldnt recommend anyone more highly. Always had a positive experience each appointment. He is the best.
