I was in dire straights when I first visited Dr. Bolhack. He immediately set me at ease and was very gentle in regards to my open wounds. He is one of the best doctors I have EVER interacted with. He is a master of his trade. His staff are very professional and capable. I highly recommend Dr. Bolhack should your wounds ever need attention.

He is the BEST. I recommend him to everyone! Had I had him years ago I'm positive that I would not have had an amputation.
