Dr. Boedefeld is a very personable man with excellent people skills. Luckily for me, his surgical skills are just as good. I dreaded this CABG surgery because of my observations of post-operative suffering experienced by both of my parents and some other relatives in the past. To my surprise, my post-operative pain was not only bearable but easily manageable. His staff is very helpful and provided good educational materials.
Best surgeon and good bedside manner
Dr. Boedefeld is the best of the best. His staff is incredible. He listens to you and takes the time to explain everything. I really believe that he saved my life.
My mom had a very hard heart surgery 1.5 years ago and Dr. Boedefeld did an amazing job. Even with a few problems (once he got in there) he did great job. I would definitely recommend him. Loved his main nurse too! The whole Cardiology unit at OLOL was absolutely amazing. ❤️
Dr Boedefeld and his staff are absolutely amazing ! Such a sweet, caring person. We are so thankful to have had him as my husbands cardiac surgeon. Everyone in his office goes above and beyond to help you and make you feel like family. We love them all and a sincere thank you Robert/Roslyn Vining ❤️❤️
It is so great to see such a wonderful doctor that is doing what he loves. He was among the doctors that saved my life when I was only 12 when he was at UAB. I had a Wilms tumor (cancer) on my kidneys. Thank you Dr. Boedefeld!
Dr. Boedefeld was recommended to me by my cardiologist, Henry Patrick, during a heart catherization procedure. I saw Dr. Boedefeld for the first time following the heart catch procedure in recovery. He had already briefed my wife and daughter all about the by-pass procedure and success per centagrs He told me he could do my procedure two days later. I jumped on it. He did the procedure, double by-pass on a Friday and I was out of the hospital on Tuesday. It has been almost three years and my last two nuclear stress tests have been exemplary. He is an extraordinary clinician and had an incredibly approachable bedside manner. He answered each and every question with honesty and great compassion. I can not recommend him high enough at just a five.
Excellent surgeon and doctor. Gets to the point. Explains well. Follows up - both he and his staff. Cares. Gives good, clear instructions. Tells you what is going to happen.
I can't say enough good comments. Dr. Boedefeld has a great bedside manner and was willing to entertain my pestering questions. As he repaired by mitrial valve (fixed without an artificial valve replacement), I am especially happy. Dr. Boedefeld's staff was also great. They treated me well.
Excellent. Among the three best doctors I have
Appears to be up to date in modern techniques and procedures. I'm 9 weeks out and so far, so good. I had some meds that had to be switched but this surgeon coupled with a good cardiologist has been a winning combination for me so far. Recommended as "top shelf".
I chose Dr Bodefeld for valve replacement surgery because my brother had used him for by-pass surgery. He did a great with my surgery. When I had to have the surgery a second time in a couple of month's time, Dr. Boedefeld put me at ease. Doing the surgeries so close together has it's risks. Dr. Boedefeld performed the surgery flawlessly and I would use him again if needed.
Dr. Boedefeld and his staff provide top notch care and compassion which give the patient such as myself the best overall experience. I had a failing aortic valve by Dr. Boedefeld and did a lot of reading before choosing him. He performed the operation flawlessly, and when I developed acute respiratory distress syndrome (a dangerous side effect of the surgery) Dr. Boedefeld and team once again stepped in and saved my life. I recommend Dr. Boedefeld to anyone considering valve replacement.
Dr. Boedefeld wouldn't take the time of day to explain himself . He made us feel that he didn't care if we understood or not. He has a God Complex. Doesnt' want to let me to, let him crack open my chest and oops " I don't know and walk off" hate to tell him , he is not God! Thank You Jesus , that he is not!
Dr Bodefeld explained everything to me and my daughter and gave us plenty of time for questions. He was honest about my diagnosis and gave me all the needed information concerning my upcoming surgery. I felt confident with his experience in cases like mine.
