I would NEVER RECOMMEND dr Bolden. He is the most rudest dr. I have seen him several times. When he did a knee replacement on me , and it didn't hold and had to do it over, then he was real rude. When I would call him, he'd tell his nurse to tell me I was fine there was nothing wrong with me, with not listening to what was wrong. He was so Rude!!! From there on.

I was injured in an automobile accident with trama to my left hip. My regular doctor ordered a lower lumbar MRI and sent me to Dr Boulden. He barely examined me and immediately dismissed me as non surgical and didn't care to listen to any of my concerns. I would never recommend a family or friend seeing this doctor. I left his office more confused than when I arrived.
