Dr. Boter was great! This was my first time visiting her office, and she made me feel very comfortable. The staff was accommodating, and the wait was not too long. Happy to have found a new gynecologist who's bedside manner is excellent, is easy to talk to, and seems very knowledgeable!

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. 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.

I didn't have a good experience with the receptionist. They called me and asked me if I could come in earlier so I did but then I wasn't seen until the original scheduled time. Did not appreciate waiting so long but I liked the doctor herself.

I honestly love her as my doctor! I had went to her a couple years ago and she was so helpful. Unfortunately I had my insurance switch so I didn't get to see her but now that I got new job and the job's insurance covers her, I had to go back to her office ASAP! She makes me feel comfortable and she is pretty quick. I highly recommend her!

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!
