What People Say About Dr. William Stephenson, MD

Excellent doctor. I'm so grateful for his care and expertise. I believe he saved my life. I had seen several doctors with no help. Within a month I had all my test results and answers. It took me 3 months to find this doctor. What a difference. I highly recommend him. His staff was so helpful and kind, my whole experience with Doctor Stephenson was excellent. I would give him 20 stars if I could.

My husband was treated by Dr. Stephenson when there was a turnover in Doctors at St. Al's in Boise, Idaho. Dr. Stephenson was brought on board in the middle of our cancer journey and before he even met with us he had reviewed all the paperwork, surgery reports, biopsies, etc, not a small feat in itself. We found him to be empathetic, yet realistic, which we liked. We didn't want to hear a unicorn-rainbow story. We wanted facts. He was experienced and did research for us. He was easy to talk wit

Dr. Stephenson is a wonderful doctor. I have had 4 appointments from an initial referral to a concluding diagnosis. His bedside manner is phenomenal; he is personable and highly informative. Because of the several tests from different specialists needed to get to my diagnosis, I had to learn each new level and field of information. He explained all, each result, each test carefully and fully. I never felt rushed and he answered all my questions. He is moving jobs and will be missed.

I have had two appointments and I just think Dr. Stephenson is a very good doctor. He listens, he is patient, he empathizes with the patient and he is very honest about his diagnosis. I would love it if we could keep him here in Boise, Idaho as I have great confidence in him as a doctor.
