I always know I can reach Dr. Borst if I need him and I can rely on his prompt reply.

Reviewed on Apr 2, 2020

Dr. Borst saw me through a high risk pregnancy when I was 38 and diabetic. I have been a patient ever since because of the way he worked so hard to get my child here safely. He returned calls when he said he would -- always the same day -- usually within an hour or two. He was calming when I was in need of a cool head and someone to tell me it was going to be okay. That was more than seven years ago and he has managed my diabetes ever since. Dr. Borst has never stopped being a voice of calm assurance and informed advice. During this pandemic, I reached out to him again after putting off an appointment for too long. I was scared and he was once again a voice of calm. The first line of his reply message to me was: "I will be able to help you". When you're literally fearing for your life in a pandemic that seems like a bullet with your name on it, that kind of response means the world and more. I wish there were more doctors like Kevin Borst. I would trust him unflinchingly in any crisis and I have sent family and friends to him without reservation -- who all feel as I do about him.

I'm not sure that I've ever had a doctor I like better than Dr. Borst. He is always personable, friendly, and has a new tidbit of information that puts my situation into perspective. One of the aspects I like most about him is that he respects the knowledge I've gained outside of his office and allows me to be as independent in my diabetes management as I want to be, and that he is never condescending. He's great at celebrating victories and pointing out just one thing to work on.
