He made me feel better about my health problems and what he would recommend. I felt that he knew my concerns and answered my questions. I felt like I could trust what he told me. Thankful he took the time to go over my records and talk to me.
Excellent doctor and his staff! They provided me with all information on my recent surgery and advised me what goals and care to take!
Wonderful. Answered all my questions. Kind. Generous with his time. Put me at ease. His first sentence told me a lot about how greatly respectful he is of my understanding/knowledge of my illness. That's what made him stand out along with of course his expertise and experience in his field. Truly felt like I was communicating with a doctor at a Centre of Excellence as Stanford is known for. From speaking with him I knew I'd found the right surgeon to repair my mitral valve.
It was great that Dr Boyd was available for consultation and ultimately for surgery within a reasonable period of time. That compares to occasionally needing to wait many months even for a consultation with a specialist.
Excellent staff and Dr. Boyd is great!
Highly recommend.
Very personable
Dr. Boyd and his team are fantastic.
Professional and courteous
Excellent service. Professional and personable.
Everyone was extremely helpful
Dr. Boyd was clear and seemed genuinely concerned about my health. He was also concerned about how well I understood my problem and the options that were being proposed for treatment.
The best care I have ever had. The doctor explained my condition thoroughly.
I can't say enough about Dr. Boyd and his staff.They are #1 in my book.
Fast, efficient and informative.
Dr. Boyd and his staff were very friendly and made me feel confident that they could resolve my surgical procedure would go smoothly and give me relief.
I would recommend Dr. Boyd to friends, family and clients without any reservation.
I needed the best… and I got it.
Excellent communicator, caring and transparent Doctor.
Dr Boyd and his team are wonderful!
,Boyd saved my life. I’m very lucky to see Dr Boyd. I’’ m really appreciate that Dr. Boyd is very concerned interested in my health before and after the surgery .He is very kind, patient and friendly person. Dr.Boyd is extremely interested. in helping me with my situation and seeking any problem to resolve my situation. Dr.Boyd has ever explained how he was going to perform my surgery and gave me many options to choose. Dr.Boyd suggest me which one is the best for me.because I don’t know anything about that. I really think you for his suggestion. I can truly say that Dr. Boyd is a very smart.and the best Dr. I have. I’l’d like to recommend Dr.Boyd to anyone. Thank you so much Dr. Boyd again and Sally and everyone on his team for saving my life.
Thank you, Dr. Boyd :) :).
Very professional. Answered all my questions.
Warm, compassionate, funny, professional, articulate, carefully explained the situation and the options. Listened to my concerns. Was reassuring and I had the sense that he really care about me as a person and not as a patient.
Dr Boyd and his staff are caring professionals.
I consider myself lucky to have the opportunity to be a patient at Stanford Heatlh Care. Their caring service is excellent.
The best doctor visit I had in a long time.
Dr Boyd not only took great care of me but was present and part of all aspects of my post surgical care. It can be rare that an attending surgeon has a physical presence in your post-op care. Often in the surgery world this falls upon fellows or residents who are part of the team. I very much appreciate the face time Dr. Boyd gives his patients.
Dr Boyd took the time to sit and talk to us. we didn't feel rushed
Dr. Boyd and his entire team are great
I really appreciate Dr Boyd, he is very concerned and interested in my health after the surgery and appreciate the fact that I can call him anytime I have any concerns and he’s very responsive.
very good services, good explaining for surgery on my heart
Although a video conference is a great time saver and convenient, meeting Dr. Boyd was a very informative and reassuring experience. No doctor has ever explained how he was going to perform my surgery and what to expect so well. And I have had several surgeries, including a previous bypass. He was concerned about how I felt and the outcome I should expect. He explained that not just HE, but a TEAM would be looking out for me. Everyone on his TEAM expressed genuine concern for my well- being. I would like to thank Maria Caimol and Sally Eastman for making my visit and my family as comfortable as possible. I never heard of a hospital that set up appointments to minimize my travel, where to park, where to stay, and hourly reports on the progress of my surgery. The hospital staff were so kind, friendly, and caring. Dr. Boyd was right about having a TEAM. I must give a lot of credit to Stanfor Health too. MyHealth is a wonderful thing. Not only for being able to keep track of all my appointments, but also for being able to check-in and do a lot of the paperwork online. I reviewed all my tests and appointment notes. But it was also nice to see who my care givers were. It was very reassuring to read all of Dr. Boyd's credentials. I knew I was in the hands of a truly great surgeon. But all those accolades don't tell you about the wonderful bedside manner of Dr. Boyd. He was so kind, concerned, reassuring, professional, has a great sense of humor, and humble. I am still on the road to recovery, but I wouldn't be here without Dr. Boyd. This being my second bypass, I can compare notes. I've has little to no pain, my chest feels much more secure, and all the issues that I had before are gone. I can truly say that the difference is ALL Dr. Boyd. Great hands, and obviously a very smart man! Thank you so much Dr. Boyd!!!!!
Dr. Boyd is extremely interested in helping me with my situation and seeking a plan to resolve my situation.
Dr. Boyd saved my life. I couldn't go on much longer. Aside from his surgical abilities, Dr. Boyd presents with a kind-hearted, genuine, and friendly persona. He is easy to speak with and answers all questions thoroughly.
I was very pleased with his concern for my health and how I am feeling. I believe he explained very simply why I need this surgery and what to expect. Since I have a previous bypass surgery by another institution, I can say that I felt left in the dark about what took place. After the video conference I am very confident I will be in good hands. I am looking forward to meeting Dr. Boyd in person.
Very, very caring and professional. Thank you for your kindness.
Everything was consistent in service and care.
Dr. Boyd was very professional
He is a great physician and very caring and knowlegeable
