Dr. Boas is a good doctor. He did not speak down to my 12 year old and he explained everything to us all patiently, calmly and in ways that were easy to understand. He is very knowledgable and made us comfortable to ask questions, no rush. So glad we found him.

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 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.

We have seen Dr. Boas several times now for our son's asthma and with each visit we are more and more impressed with Dr. Boas and his staff for their knowledge, skills and compassion. His staff takes their time with the patient and family - we have never felt like we were rushed or that there was a question that we couldn't ask. Even on days when our young son was having a meltdown about being at a doctor's office, Dr. Boas and his staff responded with utmost patience and positivity to help take the pressure off the appointment and exam. A wonderful practice from start to finish.

I have been with Dr. Boas for over 10 years. I never feel judged or treated poorly. I am usually in an exam room getting my first test of the appointment within 15 minutes of me walking in the door. He is super personable and is here for me as a person, not as a number that will pay him when I get out the door. The staff always has a conversation with me about anything, whether it be about music, school, life, or anything else. Everyone is there to help me. 10/10 couldn't recommend enough.

Dr. Boas is one of the greatest Asthma/ Cystic Fibrosis care givers in the Chicago land area. He has been taking care of me since I was two weeks old. Not only does he provide the best care for me, but also listens to how I'm feeling. I drive over an hour to his office in Glenview, and I wouldn't consider anybody else.

I have been seeing Dr. Boas for 15+ years for my Cystic Fibrosis. His approach and care is second to none. He is always working to better my health, has my best interest at heart, willing to go above and beyond, and will advocate for me no matter what. Seeing Dr. Boas is more than seeing my doctor, it's like seeing family.

Dr.Boas is the best doctor out there. He takes the time to find what’s best for his patient and make sure that everything they need is seen to. He doesn’t just see you as a set of symptoms but he sees you as a real person. He wants to make a good impact on your life and make your life better than it is now. He is a real doctor and I would recommend him 10000 stars out of 5 if I could. There’s no one better than him
