How likely are you to recommend Dr. Boffa?

(Select your rating)
Our visits were brief, but he was friendly and professional. He answered my questions and made sure I was prepared for the surgery. (gall bladder) I am a larger person and getting abdominal surgery was a big worry for me, but Dr. Boffa, his staff and the North Shore Hospital never made me feel uncomfortable about my size. Something I am very grateful for.
