Dr. Boisen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Boisen "Born in the Midwest, grew up in Hollywood, CA, educated in Boston, moved to the South for several years with horses and rescue dogs. Now I've come back to find a wonderful home in the beautiful Northwest. Two daughters in Seattle (a corporate attorney and a psychology Professor at the University of Washington) and just got my first grandbaby!"

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 is time-consuming and expensive, as well as frustrating and worrito the patients.

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

I just left her to death. There were only two doctors there is one called in sick. As usual they were inundated with patients. Probably the flu. She was tired but took the time with me, not to rush me out as there were many behind me, answered all my questions even with a smile, and asked if I had...more

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.
