My husband was having bleeding episodes in early 2013 in his throat and went to Dr Bovenkerk who scoped him and couldnt find the cause. The bleeding continued and I took him to another ENT about a month later who scoped him and immediately found the cancer in his throat. Very disappointed he didnt find it and we will never know if those 5 weeks inbetween ENT's would have made a difference.

Wife of patient

Dr. Bovenkerk diagnosed and removed a cancerous tumor in less than 2 weeks time, providing all of the testing necessary to evaluate future procedures necessary. His staff was VERY helpful with getting the information necessary to take to other appointments. You will feel a genuine sense of concern for your well-being with this doctor and his staff. When I went to pick up records to carry to another physician, they were up and out of their chairs getting my husband's records, without me even having to tell them who I was or what I was there for. This is what I call personal attention and caring for their patients. You are definitely not just an insurance claim at this office.
