My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Listening is the main tool in the art of medicine and is the beginning of good medical judgment. Two aphorisms have provided me with good boundaries. First, "No matter how you pinch or squeeze, the patient has but one disease," and second, "A patient can have as many diseases as he darn well pleases." The first quote looks for a unifying diagnosis to simplify everything. The second admonishes that everything is more complicated than it seems. The art and the science of medicine are not really separate; both depend on listening openly, never prejudging, following acquired intuition for simplicity, but expecting complexity. Teaching my patients and having them teach me is my great pleasure because it provides the key to moving from where our health is now to where we want our health to be.

from Zita July 8, 2018 for Erie V. Boorman, MD

Dr. Boorman is an excellent and caring physician.
We are also very impressed with his staff, Ms. Stacey Harrold and Mr. Will Gately. They are both very friendly and very efficient.

from Jimi in CA March 12, 2018 for Erie V. Boorman, MD

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.....and the days ....and the YEARS! I can't remember a time when you WEREN'T there for me. I've reached out to you when I was travelling, when I needed your sage advice, when I needed your detailed explanations, (even when I didn't understand their complexities), when I needed you to hold my hand. You were always there - to… See more

from Larry in CA March 9, 2018 for Erie V. Boorman, MD

Ten years ago, Dr. Boorman detected a slight upward tick in my PSA. Based on our many years of patient, Dr. relationship, he was able to notice that although it was only a slight upward move, he felt it was significant enough to have me see a specialist. Prostate Cancer was detected, in its very early stages and surgery at the time resolved the issue and I have remained cancer free. I… See more

from Victor in CA March 1, 2018 for Erie V. Boorman, MD

Dr. Boorman is the most dedicated doctor I have ever known. His professional and personal concern of the patient, me, is very focused and detailed. I feel very fortunate to have him as our family doctor.

from Philip and Phyllis in CA March 1, 2018 for Erie V. Boorman, MD

We really appreciate Dr. Boorman

from Sue in CA March 1, 2018 for Erie V. Boorman, MD

I'm always impressed with not only his caring kindness but his extensive knowledge. I also appreciate his humor. I feel like I can discuss anything with him.

from juliana in CA February 28, 2018 for Erie V. Boorman, MD

Dr. Boorman has been our family doctor for nearly 20 years. He is highly competent, thorough, caring and always makes himself available. We couldn't ask for a better physician than doctor Boorman.

from K. Cyrus in CA February 28, 2018 for Erie V. Boorman, MD

Dear Dr. Boorman, I very much appreciate your being so caring and thorough with me and my family. Your invaluable advice when my wife was going through breast cancer meant a lot to me and provided a pillar of support for me.
Thank you,
- Cyrus H.

from Jane in CA February 28, 2018 for Erie V. Boorman, MD

I first saw Dr Boorman in 1983 just after moving to CA when I had a flu that knocked me flat...and I have never seen another internist since! Once I was terrified from weird symptoms while in Vietname and he diagnosed me precisely from thousands of miles away and put me at ease...always the best doc!

from Scott March 29, 2017 for Erie V. Boorman, MD

How often in a lifetime does an acquaintance become a friend, a resource, a confidante, a caregiver?

OK, there is marriage.

Beyond that, such experiences are few and far between.

Mine is with Dr. Boorman. As young professionals and new parents decades ago, we discovered we shared warped senses of humor, love of science, and having found perfect mates. Over decades we… See more
