    wow so impressed with Dr B. He took as long as he needed and was kind and comforting. He introduced us to a PD Dr. too.

    I had an appointment in December with this provider which had to be rescheduled due to weather. I was so impressed that the provider called me personally to check on how I was doing and to cancel the appointment. No more than 15 minutes after I spoke with him, staff from the office called me to reschedule the appointment.

    Simply put, Dr. Boudette, is an amazing neurologist. He takes the time to talk about all of the options. I strongly believe, if I hadn't sought a second opinion eight years ago, and hadn't met doctor Bourdette at that time, I would not be as healthy, as strong and optimistic about my diagnosis. I owe him so much.

    Very professional and caring. Excellent communication skills.

    Thank you for the continued individual/personnal quality of care. This is a feature which many times is lacking in current health care.

    This was a routine yearly visit, and I was surprised that Dr. Bourdette was generous with his time. Much appreciated.

  • Jul 20, 2016

    I very much appreciate all the time Dr. Bourdette spent with me, discussing my condition, answering my questions, and running tests. This is the third time I've seen him and every time he's made me feel like he has all the time in the world to spend with me. I've never felt rushed, or felt like my appointment was being cut short to accommodate his schedule.

    I am so lucky to have Dr. Bourdette as my doctor. As I have written before, I can not overstate how extremely caring and knowledgeable I find him to be. I leave my appointments with my questions answered and completely comfortable with the care plan.
