Dr. Richard S Boyer has the following 2 specialties
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.
- Pediatric Radiology
Pediatric radiologists specialize in using x-rays, MRIs, CT scans and ultrasounds to help provide the most accurate diagnosis to your child as possible. After they receive the image results, they work with your family physician or other specialist to give him or her a closer look at broken bones from an accident or recognize tumors, bleeding and infections that might be causing certain symptoms.
They focus on children as young as newborns and as old as teenagers and they have to be well-versed in the growth and development of children's bodies. This allows them to properly identify abnormalities at various ages and to work with your doctor on recommending the best treatment options.

If you know Dr. Boyer will be the radiologist seeing you child for any type of imaging, request another appointment with another pediatric radiologist. My experience with Dr. Boyer was poor. He was the radiologist scheduled when my infant child had to have a diagnostic imaging. Dr. Boyer came into the the room during the middle of a very uncomfortable procedure my baby was crying while I was holding her hands and trying to calm her down a little bit by talking to her. In the middle of this he started to ask questions about her medical history. I was distracted and was not giving him the answers he wanted. He became visibly frustrated. When I told him the diagnosis the referring specialist had given her, He replied that that diagnosis was very unlikely and not what she had. when I tried to explain that this was a medical diagnosis he dismissed me and cut the test short. Dr. Boyer had poor bedside manners, was disrespectful, and showed no compassion or even interest in the well being of my baby.
