I have had nothing but excellent care from Dr Boas and his staff since my very first visit, they always answer all my questions, they are kind and courteous, easy to work with, they go above and beyond with any help I needed to get started with my home care, and above all else they care about people. Dr Boas and his staff have turned my health completely around for the better, they listen, they help, and they care, what more could you ask for from your physician and staff. Thank you for everything.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Boas for over ten years now. He has always been extremely personable and hospitable and has taken great care of me throughout the years. Every now and then there can be a wait, but nothing out of the ordinary for a busy doctor.

I have no worries knowing we have Dr. Boas and his wonderful staff taking care of our children. It is nice to have that much trust in a doctor where you don’t have to worry. We have seen Dr. Boas for about 15 years and appreciate everything he does. He takes time with each patient and you know he cares. My kids love him.

Dr. Boas is AMAZING! I can't imagine my daughter's life without him. He is THE premier doctor in the entire midwest for Cystic Fibrosis care. We get boutique treatment, he and his staff are available literally around the clock, he gives quarterly talks about the latest research and development in Cystic Fibrosis treatment, and he works tirelessly to make us feel like we're part of his family. I am beyond grateful to Dr. Boas and his team.

When our baby was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis he met with us that very evening. Took all the time we needed. Walked out feeling our little girl would be okay. She's 5 years old now and in perfect health. She looks forward to her visits. Dr Boas and his staff are top notch. Like family. We'd recommend him to anyone. Don't know what we'd do without him.

I am 19 years old and have been going to Dr Boas since I was 10. He is an extraordinary Doctor and has helped me immensely with my asthma, but more importantly he genuinely cares about his patients and their well being. If you’re in need of a pulmonologist, Dr Boas is the answer.

Dr. Boas has been an amazing doctor for many years. He listens, has a funny bed side manner w his patients which is soo important and tells his patients exactly what is going on which they appreciate. He always looks for conservative ways to treat the patient.

Dr. Boas gets to know all his patients and takes the time to really understand how their condition is affecting their lives. In our fast paced society, I appreciate the time Dr. Boas and his staff dedicate to doing a job that is well done and thorough. He is a doctor you can trust and respect. I have never felt that I am just a task to be completed. Rather, I have felt that I am a human to be cared for.
