Very impressed

December 27, 2016

Dr. Boynton is amazing. She is collaborative, open to new ideas and considering all the options, even when they don't fit into the box. I am very thankful to have her on my care team!

December 26, 2016

Dr. Boynton is a wonderful physician, her ability to connect the dots of my random symptoms, and come provide a direct plan of action is comforting. She is the first physician I've had that questioned me about my PTSD, to question, and actually see how it is exacerbating my Lymphocytic Colitis.

December 11, 2016

Dr Boynton was amazing! I have great confidence in her and her team to care for me.

September 22, 2016

Dr. Boynton has been by far my favorite Doctor!

September 04, 2016

Excellent! Both Dr. Laing and Dr. Boynton spent lots of time with me and gave me so much information.

September 04, 2016

Dr. Boynton is the most amazing physician out there! she cares so much, always a positive outlook on things making me not so stressed and worried about my disease, takes the best care of me always taking extra time with me. Very comforting, sweet and highly recommend to others!

August 12, 2016

Dr. Boynton is the best dr I have, she is so helpful and so thoughtful of my feelings she knew I sometimes get nervous with male dr so she asked that the fellow not come in cause it was a man. No one has ever done that for me. She is great at getting back to me quickly and not only worries about my Crohns but she also makes sure my mental and other health problems are good too. she is so friendly and welcoming to me and always takes her time she doesn't rush to get out and will always explain things so I can understand everything. I always recommend her to others looking for a dr like her. by far the best dr ever.

July 12, 2016

Dr. Boynton is so caring and thoughtful, and it is clear that her compassion is instilled in her staff. Everyone gets to me quickly and is kind, caring, and personable with me. I truly believe they care about my condition, and I feel grateful that they take me seriously, including my desire to use natural remedies as much as possible. Seriously, this is the best care I have received for as long as I can remember.

April 17, 2016

After seeing Dr. Boynton for 6+ years now, she continues to be as caring as ever to help me with my medical issue. She is willing to try new things and she values my opinion on things also.

April 16, 2016

Love my GI doctors. They are amazing.

April 14, 2016

Kathleen and other doctor are clearly top notch!! They provided me with the knowledge and comfort before my major abdominal surgery!!

March 08, 2016

I have recommended Dr. Boynton to several people. She is an amazing doctor who takes as much time as you need to answer questions, etc. She has literally made my life worth living again because of the time she's taken to figure out exactly was wrong with me & to treat my disease.

January 31, 2016

Really felt that Dr. Boynton and her fellow took time to understand my problem and offer the best suggestions for my treatment.

January 31, 2016

There should be a 5+ for these questions. My condition has been observed by others throughout the last year and because it has been something of a mystery, I have been dismissed by doctors throughout northern Utah. For the first time, I feel like I have a team who takes me seriously and genuinely cares about figuring this out. When I expressed my concerns about using pharmaceuticals (specifically steroids) to treat my symptoms, she and the resident not only acknowledged the herbal remedies I have been using but also suggested turmeric and agreed to let me work through that before taking medications. She offered a steroid that wouldn't be absorbed into my blood to help with my concerns about that.

January 06, 2016

Even though it was a long shot, my suggestion was still taken into consideration when testing for Hep E. I was reassured that they wanted to eliminate any possibilities and didn't ignore my suggestion or treated it as trivial.

October 30, 2015

Everything was done on schedule, with professionalism. Very pleased with the process even though having this procedure done isn't something to look forward to eagerly.

October 29, 2015

Everyone was attentive and great. My dad who was with me remarked that he was amazed by the level of skill and professionalism in the hospital that by far outdid the hospitals in the town in Northern California where we are from originally.

October 03, 2015


September 30, 2015

LOVE Kathy Boynton! So lucky to have her as my doctor! Very informative, kind, considerate, spends all the time needed with me. Best doctor in my book!

September 25, 2015

It seemed a little odd that Dr. Boynton started talking to me without introducing herself, since this was my first visit, but I quickly figured out who she was, and she was very nice.

September 25, 2015

I don't know enough to be "confident"; I'd describe my attitude as trust.

September 04, 2015

Great experience ant the facility.

September 04, 2015

Everyone was very friendly and informative. Dr. Boynton was very thorough in her explanation of the procedure.

September 04, 2015

The staff and physician were caring and efficient.

August 31, 2015

The care provider did not even know who had referred me or why I was there.

August 18, 2015

everyone is very kind and patient

August 17, 2015

Could not of asked for better people taking care of me.

August 15, 2015

nurse and doctor were fantastic!

August 15, 2015

really great! communication from both nurse and doctor were great!

August 15, 2015

Dr. Boynton provided very good information. The nurse was very helpful. I did not have family at the surgery center.

August 15, 2015

I felt like had not familiarized herself enough with my case before talking to me.

August 13, 2015

I have been in UU or Huntsman for several procedures. overall this was the best experience. my stress levels were running very high - many things going on in my life beyond my control, just got back from caring for 92 yo mother, sleep deprived, etc., and staff was so kind that I actually left more relaxed than I had been. like a spa experience, well not quite the same but they were exceptional and didn't know how exhausted and stressed I was. great team.

August 08, 2015

Your people are the best!!!

August 08, 2015

all people I had contact with were helpful and polite - pleasant experience

August 08, 2015

Couldn't ask for a better doctor! Dr. Boynton is the best!! So sweet and caring, listens to all concerns taking all the time you need. She includes me in all my decisions of treatment and I have all confidence in her and her decisions! Couldn't say enough good! Don't know what I would do without her!

August 07, 2015

I was having a bad reaction to the cleansing procedure, and a panic attack. I arrived early because I thought it was better to be at the hospital than in a hotel room (I live 250 miles away). I understand that they were busy but asked if I could lie down somewhere. My check in time was 7:15 and it was 7:35 before the nurse took me back from the waiting room.

August 03, 2015

So glad it went so well. Great

August 03, 2015


July 28, 2015

Dr. Boynton is amazing. So kind and capable - they should clone her. The nurses were awesome, overall a very good experience.

July 28, 2015

Great Staff

July 28, 2015

The nurses, Jen, Michelle and Torry, were amazing. They were so kind, efficient and competent. I was really impressed by all of them.

July 28, 2015

The care team seemed to be in perfect lock step with each other. It was efficient, friendly - really amazing actually.

July 28, 2015

Great Staff, keep up the great service

July 05, 2015

Dr. Boynton is the best. She does a great job of addressing any questions and concerns that I may have. She also takes an active interest in other aspects of my life in a way that addresses all aspects of my health.

July 04, 2015

I can't give Dr. Boynton a good review, as I stated I felt that she should have at least known who I was and my previous history, I felt like just another patient in the rotation and did not have confidence because no one seemed to know where my records were when even I could look them up in my chart.

July 01, 2015

On both occasions I have been very impressed by Dr. Boynton's care and consideration in helping with my chronic medical condition that still is a diagnostic conundrum. She makes me feel good by not giving up or making me feel like my problem is insignificant. She seems to really take time to consider multiple etiologies and care management options for me, and to see how I feel about these options too. She has been great about responding by MyChart between visits. She is a role model for specialist physicians.

June 29, 2015

Dr. Boynton is amazing. She is always so warm, kind and caring, not to mention, very capable as a physician. Despite the horrors I always experience either trying to schedule an appointment or with the MA staff, I continue to come to this clinic simply because Dr. Boynton is so great. I wish everyone who needs GI assistance could get into see her because the care she provides is exceptional.

April 12, 2015

Kathy Boynton is AMAZING!!!

April 01, 2015

Dr. Boynton is an amazing physician. She is always attentive and very compassionate in her care. I highly recommend her.

March 16, 2015

Dr. Boynton was excellent and did much to put me at ease

February 16, 2015

Dr. Boynton is an outstanding physician. Very please with the care she provides.

February 03, 2015

Dr. Boynton exceeded my expectations by far. She gave me attention and focus I've never experienced before. My experience prior to this visit was to see doctors rushing through appointments. Understandably top doctors are very busy and in high demand, and yet, Dr. Boynton took the time and made me feel cared for. I've been treated by top doctors in top hospitals if the country but never felt so much attention, genuine care and interest in helping me diagnose my condition than here with Dr. Boynton. I would be sure to recommend her to others, but the fact that she doesn't normally expect new patients will probably zero out any effect of my recomendations.

January 25, 2015

Dr Boynton is excellent and very concerned with me getting better

January 23, 2015

Dr. Boynton spent a long time with me (an hour & a half) asking me questions & answering concerns I had. She was very thorough & very helpful.

January 12, 2015

The only reason I continue to come to this clinic is because of Dr. Boynton. Everything about the GI clinic is utter misery from scheduling an appointment, wait times, lack of interest or caring amongst the rest of the staff, but Dr. Boynton is worth tolerating all of these hassles. I only wish that every patient who needs her services could get an appointment.

November 24, 2014

Dr. Boynton is amazing. It is such a shame that it is so difficult to get into see her; everyone deserves this level of attention and caring when they come to the U.

November 18, 2014

Due to having to wait quite awhile to get in to the exam room for an appointment, I feel that I shouldn't take the time to ask questions because of the time crunch. Sometimes I feel I am being rushed. In future, I will try to be more assertive.

October 29, 2014

Dr. Boyton is amazing! Very good doesn't begin to describe my care - my visit was a 10.

October 04, 2014

Dr. Boynton was excellent. She was very friendly, approachable and concerned.

June 13, 2014

I think my lackluster rating is influenced by my frustration at the ongoing uncertainty regarding my situation. I believe the numerous people I've seen over the last 2 years are trying their best, but range a lot from confidence to confusion. The GI docters focus a lot on one specific area or symptom and I feel like sometimes they don't consider a bigger picture of overall health and what might be affecting it. But I understand that this can lead into areas where the science isn't as solid yet and that untested health care advice can be risky for them and patients.

June 10, 2014

Dr. Boynton is always very concerned, listens carefully, very knowledgeable, and I feel her care is excellent.

June 09, 2014

very through, felt like i was cared for. questions answered. my spouse was with me, he was very impressed. felt as if we might have some answers

May 29, 2014

I was very impressed with the knowledge and decision making process which included me as part of the process.

May 23, 2014

The doctors took all the time I wanted to answer my questions and really seemed to care about me getting better.

April 11, 2014

James, Drs. Eliason and Boynton were all excellent.

February 13, 2014

Dr. Boynton is outstanding, she is the first GI physician to actually talk with me instead of simply performing procedures and tests. I greatly appreciate her and her approach to medical care.

February 08, 2014

The staff took the time I needed.

February 01, 2014

Excellent doctor/patient experience. Dr. Boynton was friendly, attentive, caring, professional and very knowledgable.

November 11, 2013

The provider had no idea about the information between her P.A. and I. She also was unaware of my history, the recommended plan, the latest expensive results. I was very surprised at this visit at the lack of responsibility taken by the provider and desire to keep me as a patient.

November 11, 2013

One of the most approachable and trustworthy doctors I've encountered

August 13, 2013

It was one of the best doctor appointments I have ever experienced,

June 24, 2013

Dr. Boynton has been my provider for over 10 years, her service and concern has always been wonderful which is why I have self paid at times when my insurance would not cover her.

June 18, 2013

Already have been recommending to her.

May 27, 2013

I don't know really if my hesitance in recommending my provider is the office or the provider. It's a toss up.

April 15, 2013

Best GI I have seen in six years - have seen five. Also most optimistic I have been in six years that my problems may resolve.

March 26, 2013

I love Dr. Boynton. She is so caring and understanding of my disease. It is hard for me because I cannot be completely diagnosed and with that it is hard to know how to treat my disease. Therefore, it is frustrating to me.

January 29, 2013

Dr. Boynton is incredible. I cant remember the last time a Dr spent so much time actually listening to me and asking me questions. I have so much confidence in her and her abilities as a G.I. doctor. I couldnt ask for better.

January 21, 2013

While taking notes on the computer, Dr. Boynton sometimes misheard what I was saying. For example, I would say, "X happened," and she would say, "So, X didn't happen." I had to clarify several important points several times before the situation was clear.

December 05, 2012

Dr. Boynton was amazing. She was attentive, informative, and caring. It was one of the best experiences I've had with a doctor. I felt listened to and given clear answers and direction. It was greatly appreciated.

November 19, 2012


October 23, 2012

Dr. Boynton was vastly superior to Dr. Bowers and Dr. So who I had seen previously. She was very thorough and asked questions, listened to my concerns, and set a path that I understand and feel confident in.

October 22, 2012

Dr. Boynton is awesome!!! Already have and will continue to recommend to others.

September 04, 2012

I have recommended Dr. Boynton to more than one person. She is awesome & I am very thankful she is my doctor.

August 27, 2012

Dr. Boynton is awesome!

July 29, 2012

I covered a lot of how I felt about Dr. Boynton in previous comment sections. One other aspect that makes her a great Dr. is that she uses the technology we have to save time. I can email her and get a quick response. It helps things run smoothly especial
