I have been extremely satisfied with Dr. Boswell going back to my knee surgery a few years ago. He is by far the best Doctor I have been to and the staff is very friendly and efficient. Dr. Boswell always takes the time to explain what you need in terms laymen can understand. If you need an orthopedic surgeon you can’t go wrong going to him.
