Very rarely can a woman say that a trip to the gyno is enjoyable but Dr. Boter was honestly amazing. One of the most personable doctors I've ever visited. She listened to my concerns, gave honest advice, and most importantly was friendly and kind, making what is usually an awkward visit pass quickly and painlessly. I highly, highly recommend her.

Dr. Boter is wonderful!! I've had several underwhelming experiences with OB-GYNs in NYC, hence why I haven't gone to the same doctor twice. Not anymore! Her bedside manner is FANTASTIC- she takes the time to listen, ask questions, and goes over everything with you beforehand. She kept pleasant conversation going throughout the exam so I was very comfortable. Her demeanor is so caring and thoughtful, I cannot recommend her enough. All of the staff in her office were lovely as well.

Dr. Lana is amazing! She is so sweet, friendly, and quick. I will absolutely be going back to her and recommend her to anyone. The office itself isn't much to look at and the staff isn't as great as Dr. Lana is.

Dr. Boter was excellent. She was very friendly and warm and made an always awkward procedure easy and painless. She was very knowledgeable about my condition, and I appreciated how she was able to explain things in an easy to understand way. For my appointment, they were switching to a new records system using iPads, which is very nice. They do not use the zocdoc check-in feature, so don't bother.

Dr. Boter manages to be thorough but also to the point. I always feel confident that my questions were understood and answered clearly. I am a somewhat nervous patient and she does a great job of distracting me and keeping me talking throughout the appointment. The front office has also always been great at adjusting my prescription when my insurance changes or calling it in to a new pharmacy when I move.

I saw Dr. Boter for the first time for my well woman visit and she was great. She was funny, made me feel at ease, and was knowledgeable about a chronic condition I have (that has nothing to do with gynecology and is often misunderstood, even by doctors). When I expressed concern about symptoms I've been having, she didn't dismiss them and she explained the next steps we should take to figure out what's causing them. Will definitely be seeing her again.
