Dr. Bokat is an amazing doctor. Truly. I appreciate her expertise, professionalism, knowledge, kindness, caring, and sense of humour. She makes me feel at ease, and has been very helpful in treating me for my terrible headaches.

January 27, 2017

one of the fellows was a little weird, but Dr Allen and Dr. Bokat and Dr. Jackman were super nice and quite funny

January 09, 2017

Dr. Bokat and team were excellent.

December 15, 2016

Excellent practitioner - Christina is very good with patients and very skillful.

November 07, 2016

both of my doctors where caring and helpful..both understood and was willing to listen..

October 29, 2016

I was impressed with all the doctors and nurses and the care and attention they gave. I was also was grateful for their gentleness and "least harm and pain" to dx.

October 19, 2016

I was impressed about the concern she showed and her complete explanation and concern about my feelings and level of understanding .

October 18, 2016

Dr. Bokat, in my opinion, is a rock star of a medical provider. She is awesome.

October 17, 2016

dr bokat yes. the physical therapists not so much.

October 16, 2016

Dr. Bokat is amazing along with all of the staff! We love the U!

October 10, 2016

Dr. Bukat was very personable, a good listener, and made me feel like she understood my concerns. I thought she felt genuine concern for me, especially that there just aren't that many options for treating my problem.

September 25, 2016

doc was awesome liked that I got a plan

September 13, 2016

I never was helped by anyone but the nurse.

September 04, 2016

she takes all of my concerns and addresses them one at a time until I feel completely comfortable not only with what is happening but our plan of action. she explains all the options and leaves it up to me with her recommendation, and I feel completely comfortable with her. I can ask her any and all questions I have without feeling rushed. she schedules appointments long enough for patients who my not be at their best, suffering at the time from a migraine, and still take care of what they need. She has proven her experience, concern and recommendations to be quality since I first met her with my incredible change in quality of life since working with her.

August 30, 2016

Dr. BOkat and her Anesthesiology Resident were great!

August 16, 2016

Dr. Bokat was very through and made me believe in her expertise and knowledge, therefore the help she was providing.

July 23, 2016

Dr. Bokat has been a lifesaver and an answer to my prayers. After moving to Utah from WA (Seattle) I wasn't sure that I'd be able to find a provider that would be as qualified and helpful as my previous headache specialist. Well, Dr. Bokat is wonderful. She is courteous, friendly, attentive, professional, and caring. She seems to understand my medical needs and takes me seriously.

July 17, 2016

I cannot say it enough: Dr. Bokat is awesome. She is courteous, caring, professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. I trust & appreciate her expertise and empathy. I also appreciate her taking the time to explain any hiccups that come up along the way, and how she works hard to rectify those situations.

July 15, 2016

I really like Dr. Bokat. She inspires a lot of confidence in me concerning her expertise, knowledge, and experience. She is courteous, professional, friendly, and caring. Unfortunately, on this day, I was unable to receive my scheduled procedure because of a mix-up regarding a medication I was taking, so my procedure was rescheduled for the following week. Dr. Bokat explained the situation to me and was very apologetic.

July 07, 2016

Dr. Bokat is very thorough and seems very invested in my health. She does a great job of reading though my patient history and is not afraid to follow up on unusual findings or to investigate any symptoms that might be a concern. She is also on top of current research and relies on good evidence when giving recommendations. Given how busy the clinic always appears to be, I'm sure she has a lot of her patients and is very busy herself, but I've never felt rushed during an appointment with her. I appreciate all the work she puts into my care.

July 03, 2016

Dr. Bokat seemed to grasp how painful my headaches have been. She listened carefully, asked pertinent questions, and suggested a treatment plan that seems reasonable-- and that I'm hopeful will be effective in reducing the frequency of my headaches & the severity of the pain.

May 31, 2016

This was my first visit - the evaluation. I spoke of my inflammatory issues and explained them in the questionnaire. While the physical evaluation wasn't terribly uncomfortable the end result was a tearful first night without sleep - to the point of throwing up. I'm now in my fourth day of increased pain with pounding headaches... not a pleasant experience.

May 24, 2016

I felt that both the resident and attending were efficient and compassionate. they were concerned and attentive towards my needs. I would absolutely recommend this provider.

May 21, 2016

I halready mentioned it to a friend who has shingles.

May 17, 2016

my experience was very pleasant and knowledgeable I was treated with respect and dignity I would recommend two others with chronic pain depression etc...

May 16, 2016

I've been seen by a number of healthcare professionals for this issue... Dr. Bokat was the top of the list for listening and discussing my health concerns. She's truly a terrific healthcare professional.

April 26, 2016


April 25, 2016

Dr. Bokat was very pleasant and very informative.

April 19, 2016

I appreciate the time Dr. Bokat took to review an abnormal test result (from a test another doctor order) and discuss it with a colleague in order to ensure that I didn't have anything serious wrong with me or anything wrong that would interfere with our treatment plan. She is obviously interested in my overall health, not just in pain management.

March 21, 2016

Dr. Bokat took her time in making sure all my questions were answered and my concerns were heard. I did not feel rushed, which I feel is so rare in todays medical field.

March 15, 2016

After having to wait so long to get into this clinic, I was hesitant that no one was going to listen to me once I arrived, so seeing Dr. Bokat took all of that away as she was calm and listened and asked me about everything and was very aware of what I had already tried. She seemed aware of my case.

March 07, 2016

The Doc took time and great care.

March 06, 2016

Would have liked more time with Dr.

February 16, 2016

I didn't spend more than five minutes with Dr. Boket on each visit. The Pain Clinic was my last resort and I felt that maybe they should have looked deeper into whatever it is that I'm suffering from. I started there in late November and was dismissed mid February. Very disappointing.

February 15, 2016

Very kind and caring doctors and physical therapists!

February 02, 2016

a little dissapointed in the result of the visit

January 28, 2016

I saw Dr. Bokat at the very end of the appointment. The rest of my time was with her resident. They were both very friendly and helpful. I was running late due to bad weather, and they were still willing to see me. I was very relieved, knowing that the policy states otherwise. They talked to me about my dogs, and helped me to feel a little less stressed about being there. It was a great appointment overall. The only reason I marked "fair" on number 4, is because at this time I'm not being included on decisions regarding my treatment. The physician, psychologist, and physical therapist are meeting to determine my care.

January 26, 2016

I have been very pleased thus far

January 26, 2016

I really would like to continue to return to Dr. Bokat for my botox treatments. She took time to explain things to me, and gained my complete trust quickly.

January 25, 2016

She was very understanding and concerned about my condition as well as the medications I was already on when considering treatment

January 18, 2016

Dr Bokat seemed aware of complex issues and was willing to be flexible with suggestions that would best fill my needs yet still leave the decision as to course of action up to me. her insightful knowledge and experience was well worth even the four month wait to get into her.

January 16, 2016

I don't know that I've had a physician that I sensed was more interested in getting to the bottom of my diagnosis or interested in making sure they understood the problem. She did very well and I really appreciated her attentiveness and concern and being thorough.

January 10, 2016

Rachel and Christina both spent time discussing other issues I am going through too and their affect on my pain management. They listened and asked pertinent questions

November 19, 2015

I totally respect Dr. Bokat! I might cry when she tells me things but that's because I can't cry at home. She puts up with me and speaks directly to me. I would recommend her to anybody. She is an excellent Doctor.

July 14, 2015

Dr. Bokat is amazing! She listens and she truly cares. she calms me down when I am panicking. I worked in a pain clinic and quit because of lack of true concern for their patients. Dr. Bokat and all the staff are how every pain clinic should be. I applaud them for their thoughtfulness.
