He was kind and took his time with me as a patient. The wait was a little longer than I would have liked, but it was worth it because he took his time to really understand the issues I was having. The office staff was wonderful. I would recommend them.

Right from the moment I made the call, I was informed about paying my bill. I arrived and was informed to pay my bill, I waited 2 hours, and I had an appointment, what's my time worth? "Nothing" his bed side manner was bad, brought people with him, no introduction, didn't even ask who I brought with me. steeped out and another women stepped in and made me sign paperwork, stating I would be charge this amount and would have to pay before I left. OMG it was all about the money, does anyone care about the patient?

As a lot of other reviewers point out, Rene Boothby is knowledgeable and instills confidence in the patient. I think Rene is best for patients who have potential ear/nose/throat issues but also have allergies, as he understands both quite well.

His professionalism shows in how he get to know his patient, he deals with what matters to them first, but he is very serious about his work, he leaves room and time for questions and he understand the value of family in a patients life. He is second best to my primary. I have never felt I needed a second opinion, he is confident in what he knows and it lends to be feeling safe that he is experience and qualitified to do a great job, and that's what he did, an outstanding job with my thyroid removal.

Had to contact office 3X to get paperwork.I arrived 20 minutes early as suggested. The physician did not see me for more than 90 minutes after the appointed time. Appointment was for 10:20 and he came into treatment room at noon. This was a poor use of my time and he decided that he could not help my case which could have been decided by phone as I had provided in detail to his staff the purpose of my appointment.

Dr Boothby had an emergency patient which led me to wait an hour. However it was worth the wait. He was very thorough, made sure to answer all my questions and listened to all of my concerns. I can attest that a lot of Dr's are not that patient and thorough. I highly recommend Dr Boothby.
