For Dr. Amanda Boyd, her passion for the practice of medicine is rooted in the relationships forged with patients and their families. Today, Dr. Boyd continues to forge those relationships with patients at Capital Digestive Care as a board-certified, fellowship-trained gastroenterologist. She takes a patient-centered approach to GI care.
Dr. Boyd completed her undergraduate degree at Brown University in Providence, RI, and earned her medical degree from the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, MA. After medical school, she pursued residency training at Duke University, followed by a fellowship in gastroenterology and hepatology at Duke.
“I embrace a patient-centered approach, where decisions are made collaboratively and in line with patient values and perspectives. Ultimately, I hope to build lasting relationships with my patients, partnering with them to manage symptoms and chronic conditions,” Dr. Boyd said.
While at Duke, Dr. Boyd served as chief resident at the Durham VA Medical Center. She has authored articles and abstracts in peer-reviewed journals and has presented at national medical conferences. She continues to mentor medical trainees as a member of the faculty at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
Dr. Boyd grew up on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. She is delighted to be raising her daughter by the beach in Hampton Roads.
