Dr. Boholst has been my care provider for almost two full years now, and he was as knowledgeable and warm as always. It is truly a delight to work with him, and he showed an extra amount of care than usual this visit (due to a test result), and I appreciate his calm demeanor in helping me figure out next steps with regards to care.

Dr. Boholst was one of the most impressive clinicians I have ever seen at Northwestern. I was impressed that he had actually taken the time to throughly review my records prior to the appointment and was already familiar with the background and details of my case. This allowed us to use our time more efficiently. He also showed genuine care and concern, seemed very knowledgeable, and most importantly did not make the appointment feel rushed even though I believe we finished in the allotted time. Dr Boholst is an exceptional clinician from a patient experience standpoint and I was extremely impressed.

He gave me a lot of coined medical responses and information, which I knew, so it would have been nice to have him ask about my background knowledge, but I felt comfortable with the information he gave. He also spoke very quickly, and I felt like he was trying to get through as much information as quickly as possible, which made me feel a little rushed and the whole experience a little less personable.
