Excellent surgeon, but you can't afford to be impatient when waiting to see him. I have waited 2+ hours, even when I had the first appointment of the day. He helped me fight the insurance company when they first turned down my procedure, which I desperately needed for pain relief. This proved to me that he listens and is kind and empathetic. It can be somewhat difficult to get an appointment because you must talk with his nurse, who, of course, is not always available.

Dr. Boyer is an excellent surgeon however lately, his suggestions are things like implanted devices and pain centers rather than actually try to resolve your pain. It takes 2 months to get an appointment and then a 4 hour wait in his office to see him.

Excellent!

I first met Dr. Boyer after being transferred from my local hospital to UT Medical Hospital. I was very sick and had no idea why. Dr. Boyer was confident in diagnosing my condition and made me feel at ease with his plan for surgery. Dr. Boyer implanted a Ventricular Peritoneal Shunted to drain CSF from the very enlarged ventricals of my brain. I received excellent care from Dr. Boyer; Laura and his staff. He saved my life and I would recommend his service. implanted a Peritoneal
