Dr. Boter was absolutely great. The OBGYN is always an awkward experience, so I appreciated her professionalism and she put me at ease with her sincere questions before the exam. I also really liked her check in system and efficiency in communicating information/ Perscriptions. I will definitely use her in the future and I wouldn't have any doubts to pop in if I do have any issues. Thank you!

I couldn't have asked for a better experience overall. Dr. Boter was so friendly and knowledgeable, and the exam was very thorough. She made me feel more comfortable than any previous doctor ever has! She answered questions in a language I could understand, and addressed all of my concerns. I was seen right away and everyone was friendly and professional.

Check in was pretty quick and smooth. Had to wait a while before I was taken front the small waiting area, and then again in the exam room before I was seen. I saw the medical assistant first, she was was definitely more on the abrupt side, maybe she wasn't having a good day. Front desk was great, got me ready quickly. I waited a while before the Dr came in, but she was worth it. Loved her bedside manner, loved everything with her, she was awesome. Huge difference from my previous gynecologist, she engaged in small talk and seemed very sweet. Highly recommend Dr Boter!

Dr. Boter is easily one of the best doctors I've been to in years. I get embarrassingly nervous when visiting the doctor, and Dr. Boter was extremely friendly and personable. She took the time to put me at ease and make me feel comfortable. Beyond her excellent bedside manner, she is also quick, efficient and knowledgeable. Could not recommend more highly.

I've been seeing Dr. Boter for a few years now. I really enjoy her bedside manner and our conversation during our appointments. I'm a somewhat nervous/concerned patient and her calmness really works for me - especially when it comes to abnormal paps or decision-making conversations (birth control choices, optional testing, etc.) I give only 4 stars because I have recommended friends to her in the past and one didn't like the casual nature or conversation - so it's definitely personality-based. I never dread my appointments though, and would look forward to them...if they weren't what they are.

Dr. Boter doesn't go through the trouble of examinations. The point is - if you need a quick pap - she's great. If you worry you may have a condition and need a doctor to go down the scary road of testing, talking, learning, discovery, and healing, find someone else.

I do not have a problem with Dr.Boter. I'm just writing to say I booked an appointment through Zocdoc with my updated insurance info, but when I got to the office I was turned away because they did not accept my new insurance. I've been going to Dr.Boter for my annual exams and I was very disappointed that I couldn't see her. I wish I had been notified ahead of time instead of spending such a big chunk of my day commuting there and back. I'm hoping I can find a new doctor that I like as much as her.

Dr. Boter was great. She went out of her way to get information from my previous visit to another doctor to confirm that a follow-up procedure was not necessary. Happy to have found a new OBGYN!

Dr. Boter was wonderful! This was my first appointment with her and she was warm, professional, and informative. I was diagnosed with PCOS last year by a different OB-Gyn, and Dr. Boter was sensitive and straightforward in our discussion about the implications of that diagnosis as well as treatment options. She answered all my questions and made me feel like I was talking to a supportive friend. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Dr. Boter is absolutely wonderful, though the wait time was far too long. I arrived 5 minutes early for my appointment and was checked in relatively quickly, though I ended up waiting alone in a freezing cold exam room in a paper gown for more than 45 minutes before the doctor came in.

She is the BEST. After two years she remembered everything we had talked about at my last visit. She makes you feel 100% calm and comfortable and the appt is over before you know it. Provides a thorough exam as well and never makes you feel rushed. When she asks if you have any questions, she means it. Staff in the office is also superb; everyone is incredibly nice, professional and beyond helpful.

Dr. Boter is very patient and takes time to learn about your history and listens to your questions and concerns. She doesn't rush through your appointment and her interest in your health is genuine. I hadn't seen her for almost a year and she remember what I did for work and that I am getting married soon (things we had discussed at my previous visit). She also has a way of distracting you while she performs her procedures so you are not complete focused on being uncomfortable and before you realize it she is done. She is also very knowledgeable and seems extremely well educated in her field. Overall, she is on of the best doctors I have ever had and highly recommend her.
