Five years ago my wife fell on her bike and dislocated a joint and broke a bone in her hand. By random chance Dr. Boyette turned out to be our doctor. The sun was shining on us that day. Nobody can ever put something back together as good as God made it in the first place but Dr. Boyette got really, really, really close. Today the injury is a memory and you would never know it happened. You couldn’t possibly ask for a better doctor. In our minds she is hands down the best there is.

Great surgeon! Operated on my right wrist and was back playing pain free golf in 5 weeks. Highly recommend.
Could not have had a better experience, no one wants to have surgery, but Doctor Boyette and her staff made the experience exceptional.
I am totally satisfied with DR Melissa Boyette as being one of the best doctors ever., in just one office visit and one treatment she ended my terrible hand pain. I highly recommend her to everyone.

It was September 2012 when Dr. Melissa Boyette repaired my wrist with a steel post. It was shattered in an accident with my two dogs. I was warned that I may not regain the full use of my hand/fingers. I apologize it’s been so long, I have been meaning to write and let Dr. Boyette know what a wonderful job she did. After the post-surgery pain subsided, I regained complete use of my hand and there is no numbness whatsoever. She may not remember me, I am the older English lady she saw when she first started at Coastal. Please let Dr. Boyette know how grateful I am. She is just amazing.
Dr. Boyette is the best hand/wrist doctor ever. She did surgery on my broken wrist. It healed quickly and my followups were very pleasant and she answered every question I had and her bedside manner was second to none. I highly recommend her for any wrist/hand problem you have!

Although I felt my surgery was minor, I was treated by all staff and Dr. Boyette like it was very important. They could not have treated me better. Dr. Boyette is very friendly, caring and professional.

I broke both my wrists and immediately called Dr. Boyette. My husband and I have been former patients of Dr. Boyette and we trust her. Her expertise in diagnosing the problem and laying out a plan to fix it is amazing. She is a great communicator, is friendly, and shows great wisdom in recommending a treatment plan. We highly recommend her and feel grateful that she has helped us heal from our orthopedic issues.

Dr. Boyette and her office staff went out of their way to accommodate my fractured wrist. They were kind and courteous and I always felt well taken care of. Being on vacation and hours away from home could have been a stressful situation but the care I received put my worries to rest. I highly recommend Dr. Boyette and her compassionate staff for any of your orthopedic needs.

In addition to your obvious meticulous, gifted expertise and professionalism shown before, during, and after my recent left thumb reconstruction, you are blessed working with an outstanding group of individuals. Thank you for everything that you have done to enrich my quality of life.

My doctor, Dr. Boyette, was extraordinarily good — skilled, thoughtful, kind, and informative. Her team was, without exception, excellent.

In order to ameliorate problems I was experiencing with carpal tunnel symptoms Dr. B. recommended injections in both my wrists after she completed her examination. The injections were painless and they solved the problem. In addition, she was very personable, made me feel comfortable with her decision, explained different courses of action, and provided information about future reactions and recommended treatment. I felt very confident in her knowledge and ability as an orthopedic doctor and would definitely see her for any future orthopedic type problems.
Richard Veraszto, Bradenton
Dr. Boyette was kind, considerate and patient. Her medical and surgical skills were beyond excellent. She spent all the time necessary to explain the situation and its resolution. The orthopedic specialist that I followed up with thought that her surgical result was excellent.
Dr. Boyette was an excellent doctor and I would highly recommend her. Her office staff was very accommodating and worked around our vacation plans.
She is a wonderful physician. Very thorough in diagnosing the problem and recommending a solution.
