My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am a native of Tucson, born and raised so I love this state and the Arizona desert! My goal as your doctor is to provide a personalized healthcare plan with an emphasis on prevention and wellness. It is my conviction that practicing good medicine includes a partnership between doctor and patient. It is this institution of the doctor-patient relationship which gives perspective and insight to great healthcare.   

The one size fits all approach to the traditional practice of medicine does not account for your uniqueness, genetics, environmental exposures, stressors and life-style choices.   

In my MDVIP-affiliated practice you will be treated with the most up-to-date, evidence-based medicine combining traditional, functional medicine and nutrition. This model integrates best medical practices; offering you the personalized, compassionate healthcare that you deserve. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. I will work with you to impart a positive vitality and hopefully beyond the absence of disease.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Boyed

from Betty in AZ July 17, 2021 for James R. Boyed, MD, FAAFP

Doctor Boyed has been my Doctor for over 30 years and I hope he will be until I die. He is kind, patient, thorough, explains everything in detail and answers all of my questions. He is always on top of the cutting edge information about living a healthy lifestyle and avoiding uncessary medical problems. I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't have him as their doctor.

from Flo in AZ March 13, 2020 for James R. Boyed, MD, FAAFP

I have had diarrhea for a lot of years. It was so bad that I was afraid to take walks, go shopping, out to dinner, etc. I had to be in proximity of a bathroom all the time.
Dr. Boyed paid attention to me when I told him about this problem (other doctors that I had been to gave me suggestions to help the problem but no real permanent solution). Dr. Boyed gave me a kit and I was able to… See more

Boyed is the best doc in my life

from Michelle in AZ March 11, 2020 for James R. Boyed, MD, FAAFP

Dr James Boyed is an amazing, caring and intelligent doctor. I have learned so much about my health and body; II am really touched he cares so much about his patients. As the knowledge I’ve gained pertains to my future health wise, I’m truly thankful. He pointed out how the treadmill is great for cardio, but that my legs weren’t sting, and I needed a rowing machine to strengthen them.

from Barbara in AZ March 10, 2020 for James R. Boyed, MD, FAAFP

Dr Boyed has taken care of me and my family for a long time! I am not a easy patient to take care of. I am scared of doctors. Dr. Boyed is easy to talk to and has a calmness around him. It is like a force field Star Trek has. He puts this force field around you and he protects your health. I trust Dr. Boyed will do anything in his power to take care of my husband and me. We can joke with Dr.… See more
