I am a physician, a retired anaesthesiologit. The provider was at one point a student of mine. He is functioning very well indeed in his practice and I trust him to manage my newly acquired hypertension and type II diabetes which have emerged after a severe pneumonia involving a ten-day spell on a ventilator.

Dr. Borden is competent, efficient, and is a fantastic director of my medical care. I see several specialists and it takes an excellent doctor to facilitate the care I need. Dr. Borden's prompt attention to the details streamlines my previously difficult navigation of medical care and insurance requirements.

the only concern I have is to the first phone call made for this appointment. The audio connection on your end was very poor and hard to understand. I am hard of hearing, but normal connections are generally fine. The second call from the doctors assistant was very clear.

I have been Dr. Borden's patient for 25 years. He is wonderful, he knows me, and we have a fantastic patient/doctor relationship. I changed insurance companies to follow him to the Good Samaritan/Legacy Clinic. The most important medical need for a senior citizen is to have a doctor that sees them as a person, not a geriatric case. I appreciate Dr. Borden...we make a great medical team for me. I wish every person of age had a Dr. Borden!

There seems to be a lack of real compassion and empathy from the providers I have met recently. I am dealing with constant pain and the feedback I am getting from the medical community is limited to a very narrow set of recommendations for dealing with it. After that, the advice is that this is just what life is about and I get the feeling that my pain is just an academic exercise for the doctor. I have not been able to find a provider that will offer an approach that is successful in changing the trend of my pain issues. It makes me think that an AI (Artificial Intelligence) doctor will be at least as helpful to me as the human version I find in the current system. Too much of the medical profession these days seems to be more of a business than a caring service. Very sad.

I am a transfer to Dr Borden. We going to Dr K Zeller until she retired then went to Natalia Van Havre who had to leave the country unable to renew her work visa very sad as she was excellent.My husband has been going to Dr Borden for many years, and thinks highly of him and I watched Dr Borden handle a medical emergency my husband had in May/June so decided to make the switch. He is very calming and listens.
