About the Radiologist

Dr. Boohaker is a Birmingham native.  He grew up in Vestavia Hills, AL and attended John Carroll Catholic High School. Dr. Boohaker obtained his Bachelor’s Degree from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, and his Medical Degree at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2011. He completed his diagnostic radiology residency at Baptist Health Systems in Birmingham in 2016. Dr. Boohaker matched into a Neuroradiology fellowship at UAB.   He was awarded the “Outstanding Fellow Award,” for the year 2016-2017, chosen amongst all the radiology fellows at the institution.

Dr. Boohaker particularly enjoys Head and Neck Radiology; however, the versatility required of a general radiologist dealing with a variety of pathologies and interventional procedures is what Dr. Boohaker enjoys most about radiology. This flexibility allows him to interact with patients and develop relationships with physicians from all departments and disciplines. Dr. Boohaker joined the Shelby division of the BRG in July 2017. During his free time, Dr. Boohaker enjoys exercising, travelling, fishing, college football, and spending time with his family. He is married to Dr. Maggie Law, an orthodontist, and they are expecting their first child. Dr. Boohaker values his faith, family, and friendships above all else.
