*Dr. Boutin takes time, pays attention listening, and avoids pushing medication unnecessarily which I really appreciate. I only wish wait times were better. For a 10 AM appt. I waited almost 1 hour.

Dr. Boutin is the best doctor I've ever seen. He took the time to really listen to me unlike every other dismissive, unhelpful doctor. I wish I would've seen him instead of the ... nurse practitioner 7 months ago when I was *really* sick.
