Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Boisen "I believe that Competent medicine means to treat the person, not the disease. Rely heavily on the history and the exam, as well as your own experience and intuition – and not spend time ordering  and chasing lab tests and x-rays. These are to augment a physician's skill, not try and make a diagnosis apart from intelligent interpretation of signs and symptoms.

I am of the old-school, which feels that if you truly listen to patients, they will give you the diagnosis, along with having a broad base of education and experience to recognize a condition when it presents itself.  No shotgun approach with me. It's more sleuthing until it cones down on what must be the accurate diagnosis. And not a lot of extraneous testing, which often only reveals red herrings that then have to be chased down. That is time-consuming and expensive, as well as frustrating to the patients.

A little time and smarts at the onset can save hours or weeks of confusion and missteps in the long run. "

Dr. Boisen diagnosed my Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction within minutes. I have suffering from this condition for many years with little to no results from other health care practitioners. I am changing to her practice as soon as possible. Thank you so much!!

She's kind, and listens to you. And treats you with respect. Doesn't just order test or push drugs. Doesn't try to get you out of the office quickly. She actually does an examination on you and the thoughtfully talks to you about your problem and what can be done. A rare find.
