Dr. Arthur M Boshnack has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

The other comments are not totally wrong, he comes off as having an attitude but my experience him was that he was courteous, professional and very knowledgeable. If your looking for a sociable, chatty Dr., he is not your guy. When I have to go to a doctor, I want his expertise not his friendship.

not happy

I agree with most of the other reviews. He does not take a detailed history. (doesn't seem to have the time)Sent me for a million tests without even really hearing my history. Does not like to be questioned. Bed side manner awful.

Don't go!

Rude, condescending, impatient, don't ask him questions because he gets annoyed with you. Had to call only one time after hours and he was NOT happy!

Five Stars

I am delighted I found Dr Boshnack. He is an excellent diagnostician. I had been to other gastroenterologists who did not diagnose my problem and he is the first doctor who actually helped me. He answered all my questions and performed the endoscopy and colonoscopy perfectly. There was no discomfort. Office is modern and efficient.
