Dr. Bovis is an outstanding Physician. I had brain surgery and I could not be more impressed with him. He was so kind, attentive, patient and most of all a very skill full surgeon He spent time with my family prior to my surgery to address their concerns. The follow up care was as good as the pre-surgery care as Dr. Bovis sees you through to the end of your treatment. My only negative, and it is a big one, is his staff. They are rude, argumentative and you do not get called back if you leave a message. Trying to speak with the Doctor is next to impossible. The entire office staff needs to be cleaned out and new staff who actually wants to serve patients should be hired. It is a shame that such a fine Doctor's reputation is impacted by the fact that his staff is in need of some courses in people skills, manners and caring and concern for people.
Dr. Bovis is fabulous. He is warm, caring and takes great pains to explain everything, answering every question in as much detail as you can handle. His staff, on the other hand, seems to work against the patients. They are uncaring, insulting and condescending. They do not call back when they say they will and my Physical Therapist finally had to page Dr. Bovis to get my physical therapy moved along, having waited 3 weeks for answers going through his staff. But I have full range of motion and no more pain thanks to the doctor. Kudos to Dr. Bovis!!!
Dr. Bovis recommended that I not do surgery without trying steroid injections and physical therapy first. His approach to surgery is much less invasive than what other neurosurgeons had offered me. I have seen his work on patients in the hospital. He is consciencious, considerate, and skilled in his work. I feel fortunate to have his guidance through my herniated disc injury.
