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!

The staff is curt and the office is very, very old and dirty feeling. I was kind of appalled by it. She was nice but I felt like I was in a gulag. She was quick to brush aside my concerns about some symptoms etc, which was annoying.

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.
