It is very hard to get an appointment with Dr. Boulet. If I had seen him sooner after an emergency room visit in May, I would have felt a lot better. I saw nurse practitioners a couple of times, they were very nice, yet they were way more alarmist about my condition then Dr Boulet. After this visit with him, I am reassured that I can live and travel with my condition.

Dr. Boulet is one of a kind. I wish I knew doctors were like this before my stroke...I would have went to the doctor and it could have been prevented. He treats me like a friend...not a patient. I look forward to seeing him every year.

I am extremely pleased with the care I have received. Dr. Boulet even called me one evening to explain to me how the cardio version worked and what to expect. I feel so completely safe with the care that I have received at Providence. Not once have I had a bad experience.

Dr Boulet is an excellent care giver. My only issue is trying to contact his office. it is like trying to get into a Fort Knox. you have to call the general number and sit on the phone forever to talk to someone to get a message to the nurse to call back.

Dr. Boulet saved my life in July 2005 when he responded to the emergency room where I was brought in with a myocardial infarction. During the past 12 years, he has continued to provided me with exemplary care. He listens intently when I have questions and insures my wife and I fully understand his explanations and instructions. I never feel rushed when I am with him.

I was very early for my appointment and I was fine with sitting in the waiting room when Dr. Boulet's nurse, [...] came out to make sure I knew when my appointment was scheduled and that they would try to get me in as soon as possible. I thought that was very thoughtful of her.

09/07/2016
my only issue is that I was seeing this provider for a cardiac issue which my PCP felt needed to be evaluated quickly. Dr. Boulet gave me the impression that my condition was not that of an urgent manner. I am also a chronic pain patient and he seemed dismissive of my pain issues.
