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
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.
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
I found Dr Boyd both made me feel both extremely confident in the procedure and truly cared about me as an individual.
We can’t say enough good comments Dr Boyd’s personal responsiveness to our case, his immediate review of tests to assess the urgency, and encouragement he provided in sharing his knowledgeable experience in dealing with cases such as ours.
