Dr. Boatwright is one of the best and friendliest most understanding Dr you can see... Especially for pain.
in Myrtle Beach, SC |
The worst! Staff is incompetent. Nurse practitioner lies and then doesn't keep full records. Wait time can be 3-4 hours without any apologies. And, Tish, the office manager threatens clients with taking away their pain medicine on a daily basis. There are many practices to go to in Myrtle Beach where you are treated with dignity and respect. This is not one of them.
The doctor is excellent. Getting to a person to speak to at the office is another story. Unfortunately, they are automated and can take weeks to get back to you if they ever do.

Dr.Boatwright is by far the number one pain specialist on the Grand Strand. He goes above and beyond to show compassion, understanding, and empathy to his patients. He is extremely knowledgeable. Page,Tish, Tonya, Ashley, and all the staff are very loving, caring, and helpful. I cannot imagine going anywhere else. * Sometimes the truth hurts and our first response is to lash out in anger.* No one cares more about his patients than Dr. Boatwright. He would never knowingly talk bad about anyone!

after being dismissed over a test that was not mine...wrong date on it ...wrong info.I thought taking another test would resolve the issue.Oh no....humiliation.. To my.dismay they did not even process the second test and the company that does the testing confirmed they did not get 2nd test. The Office Manager Tish would not return calls. Thank you for making my life worse. The Office send me a letter saying they do not trust me???????? I can only hope others will not suffer this horrid Treatment

One of the worst experience. Without researchingvthectruth and even discussing my injuries or ways to love better. He walked out of the room and I had to listen to him and his Office Manager Tish on what a horrible person I am.Test were inconclusive and it did not show the medicines I have taken for years they had things I have NEVER taken.They did not give me the courtesy to look at numerous tests from other providers or wait for my new results from his office.Doctor never came back.DO NOT GO!

Great experience when being brought in, until it gets above his head. Don't do it! A mill and now he is studying to practice addiction medicine. What a great fit, create your own patient base!

Dr. Boatwright is by far the best doctor I have ever had. He is very caring and understanding when it comes to pain. For years, I suffered from debilitating back pain and was not taken seriously by other doctors. I credit Dr. Boatwright with restoring my quality of life and actually diagnosing my issues rather than just brushing me off as others had in the past. My problem actually required surgery and I may have lost the ability to walk without his care due to the lack of care from others.

Doctor Boatwright was the best doctor I ever had. He treated me before I moved away and continues to treat my mother until this day. He made it so I could continue to work for several years. Since I moved away, I became permanently disabled and suffer from extreme pain every day, all day. I miss his treatments. I highly recommend Dr. Boatwright to anyone suffering from extreme pain. He is the best you will ever find !!
in Myrtle Beach, SC |
The doctor has walked in our shoes and continues to do so every day, he deals with pain daily. He is so compassionate with his patients, I am so lucky to have found him. He earned my trust immediately. I would highly recommend this professional . Larry Beavers Myrtle Beach
