Great physician and an excellent surgeon.
I had both right and left carpel tunnel release surgery within a month of each other with Dr. Boler. From the first office visit with xrays, then EMG to diagnosis , I felt comfortable and trusted in Drs. assessment. Both surgeries went very well, with little scaring or pain , probably to the excellent, coined” Boler Wrap” with both immobilizes and supports the wrist for the first days. My symptoms were relieved almost immediately after surgery! I would highly recommend this skilled and competent doctor! Thank you for such great care!
I went to Dr. Boler for a broken forearm which occurred in the job. The surgery he performed fixed the break. I have no complaints about that. It's the after care I received that was disappointing. He was very quick to dismiss my issues with pain and was "in a rush to get me back to work" . He has all the bedside manner of a trauma doctor or bed pan. Don't go to this guy. Go to Albany Bone and Joint. They really care. Ortho NY is NOT recommended.
I saw Dr. Boler because of continued swelling and problems with my hand after a broken wrist healed. My problems are comparatively minor and yet Dr. Boler listened carefully to my issues, took multiple X-rays which corresponded to the areas of complaint, and checked mobility, etc, carefully. He gave me explanations, two options, and his recommendation, which was not the $$ surgical option. My occupational therapist said he is the only MD to come to her office to interview her. Impressive
I would never recommend Dr. Boler. I have served in EMS for many years and have treated every patient with 100% compassion. Dr. Boler has terrible manners, complete lack of care for patients, thinks he knows you better than yourself, absolutely should not be a doctor. I would rather operate on myself and I have no experience than deal with that guy again. I was so disgusted with this doctor I never review if I could review lower I would,
While suffering a dislocated left wrist, which was tearing the TFCC fibrocartilage complex of the wrist, after I had seen the orthpedist in the same office for about 9 months without relief, or MRI or CT and only xrays and a quick wrist sprain dx, Dr. Boler told me that MRI's are not used on wrists or hands while I had been diagnosed with a wrist/thumb sprain. He then told me that maybe my wrist pain was coming from ...and he pointed to his head. An MRI with dye, arthrogram diagnosed this.
Brief, abrupt and did not know what was wrong with the hand situation
My husband hand was swollen & painful. After speaking with him & examining his hand, Dr. Boler decided to do an extra test on my husbands blood - he tested his Ferritin levels.Bingo - that was the problem. Due to that my husband quickly saw a hematologist & she determined that he has hemochromatosis. She said most of her patients don't find out they have this inherited condition until they have organ failure.Dr, Boler's consideration & thought saved my husband from a lot of pain and potentially life threatening consequences.
