Patient Reviews

The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Boykin.

“Dr. Boykin put my shoulder (rotator cuff w/massive tear) back together after a bad fall. Also fixed my bicep tendon with no Popeye muscle. I had very little pain after surgery. The anesthesiologist was excellent and gave me a good nerve block. The staff at surgical center was excellent also. His assistant, Katie was very efficient. She always answered all my questions by asking Dr. Boykin in a very timely manner. Physical therapy was pretty good. I have full range of motion and good strength. I did all my exercises and still do over one year later. I am back playing a very physical racquet sport which at my age (67), I feel fortunate to be doing. It took a lot of work for me since I tweaked my bicep tendon during home exercises at 4 months, and it became a nagging issue. Seems to have improved some in the last few months by doing specific exercises for it. When I first got injured, I didn't have much pain and the MRI didn't really show how big the tear was so I had a hard time making a decision on surgery. Dr Boykin took the time to call me and talk to be over the phone. That helped me come to a decision.”

“I broke my collar bone over the July 4th weekend and was very happy with how quickly Dr. Boykin was able to see me and then moved to schedule an operation that week. My collar bone healed well and I appreciate Dr. Boykin and all the staff that I interacted with in helpful manner and good work.”

“It was a very pleasant experience both with Dr. Boykin's "bedside manner" and the results of the surgery. I could not have asked for a better surgeon for my rotator cuff surgery. We drove from central Florida to make our visits with him, and if I were to have need of any other surgery, I would make that trip again.”

“I was in tremendous pain when I arrived. They got me back very quickly and took X-rays. Dr. Boykin came in immediately and realized where I was hurting. He injected my back with steroids. It has already helped. I am happy with how I got treated.”

“I had a complete Rotator Cuff tear. Dr. Boykin put me back together with 9 screws and was a little concerned about the healing prior to surgery. It was a complete success and the recovery was well ahead of schedule. All the rehab folks were great and friendly. I would suggest to anyone needing this type of procedure to visit your office. In fact a coworker is having this same procedure in the future by Dr. Boykin. I told my friend he was in the best of hands. Chris, Dr. Boykin's assistant is excellent as well!”
