I recently had to have spinal/lower back surgery to relieve pain from a slipped bone that was crushing my sciatic nerve. My gynecologist recommended Dr. Boyd. I trust this doctor's opinion. I got an appointment with his N.P. Russ who introduced us to Dr. Boyd after reviewing my MRI and we discussed surgery. scheduled my surgery. 5 weeks out and I am doing just great. I love Dr. Boyd's personality (low key) and am so pleased he did my surgery. The staff is marvelous also. Never a rushed app't

I had visited 3 other back surgeons and had my MRI also reviewed by the Laser Institute of America before seeing Dr.Scott Boyd. Dr. Boyd put me most at ease and did an outstanding job in explaining before and after surgery the procedures that were done. He used language that a lay person could easily understand. His doctor/patient relationship was first class. I would recommend this surgeon to anyone. My surgery was very successful.

I just want everyone to know that Dr Boyd and his staff go above and beyond there duties. I have never meet such a professional group of people in my life. Dr Boyd and Russ are the best there is not enough words I can explain my visit to this Office. They take there time with you and explain everything so you can understand what is going on. I will tell anybody that Dr Boyd and his staff are unbelievable kind and have never made me feel very comfortable when I go to see him. Thank You Dr Boyd

Dr. Boyd, Russ and his team replaced my C6/7 disc and I could not be more pleased with the outcome. Recovery was a breeze, I was home the same day and walking the next am, free of the debilitating nerve pain that I had lived with for so long. I highly recommend Dr. Boyd. My only criticism is that I had to wait three weeks for an appointment.

I was extremely impressed with Dr. Boyd's professionalism and down to earth personality. What impressed me most was my surgery was scheduled later and after he saw my MRI my surgery was scheduled the next morning. His entire staff that I dealt with (Russ McMurray, Maryann, and Stacy, Alisha). Maryann was wonderful, every time I called unsure of what was going on she always called me back and calmed me down. She was instrumental in helping me on the phone. The whole scheduling team great.
