"I recently had some treatment at (ROC Express) with a follow-up appointment, later, in the main facility. Both front desk personnel were cheerful and helpful. You can tell when someone likes their job. If you can wrangle an appointment with Dr. Boyden, do it. He's the best!"

Dr. Boyden seemed very knowledgeable and personable. His recommendations for my knee were very accommodating to my requirements and he provided options for treatment. I was very impressed with his overall manner and professionalism.
