Patient Testimonials

Dr. Boden is fantastic. I have been under his care for a little over 1 year for a painful and persistent shoulder injury that required 2 surgeries at another center. During the initial diagnostic phase, Dr. Boden advocated strongly for conservative treatment initially and only discussed surgery when those methods failed.

He personally calls you the morning after surgery to check and see how you are doing and explain exactly what was done. overall, he is extremely thorough, very knowledgeable and talks to his patients in layman’s terms that they can understand. He will always spend as much time with you that you think is necessary in an appointment, even if it means falling a little bit behind schedule.

His bedside manner is one of the best I have ever experienced. Staff at the Rockville location is fantastic. They are always super duper busy managing the practice, but always have time to answer questions and always do so with a smile.
