Dr. Boruchow was born and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs and lived in Maine, New York City, and Boston before coming to Austin in 2013.

I have always been fascinated by the marvels and complexity of the human brain, and am excited when I am able to determine the root cause of a patient’s symptoms. I find the detective work in neurology to be complex and challenging, but also satisfying. I always advocate for my patients’ best interests, recognizing that the ‘right’ treatment for one individual may not be the right approach for another. I provide support by understanding their goals and helping them accomplish those goals as best I can. I greatly enjoy getting to know my patients and working together to devise a solid treatment plan to improve their quality of life.

It was all great and efficient. Thanks
I love these people they a a great group of professionals
I really appreciated Dr Boruchow. He was very thorough and professional but also listened to my concerns and showed personal interest.
Dr. Boruchow is an awesome doctor. He attentively listened, was easy to understand, and his staff was stellar. I felt heard and that he took the time to explain things and support me. The front staff smiled and we had a short chat about he excitement to have the construction finished. She found me appointment since the next slot was in February. My ONLY issue was the unacceptable time it took for me to see the doctor. Thank you for caring.
To my surprise I really enjoyed the staff I dealt with today. Honestly, every single person I dealt with today was, hands down, so kind and welcoming. Not to mention patient and way smart. It was my pleasure to spend time at ARC at Four Points today. To top it off my wait time was about 3 secs, no matter for whom or what.
