Verified Patient Reviews
What an amazing experience. I had a ton of questions and she was so good at answering all of them, providing explanations for everything and really listening to my concerns. She suggested a prescription and asked if I was comfortable with it. When I said I wasn't really since I had heard mixed things about it, she immediately suggested another alternative. Absolutely the best OB-GYN I've ever had. Definitely won't be seeing anyone else in a while! highly recommend her.
She was awesome - made me feel completely at ease! Would definitely recommend her to my friends!
Worth the wait! She is great at putting patients at ease with her manner, humor, and smarts.
Amazing-best gyno appt I've ever had. Answered all my questions, made me extra comfortable and was genuinely kind overall.
She clearly discusses what's going on and doesn't rush and is technically very skilled when it comes to procedures
I've been seeing Dr Boter for a few years now and I always feel that I am in good hands with her. She is very thorough and has a great bedside manner.
Dr. Boter is caring and professional. She has a calmness and it is so clear that she truly cares about each of her patients and listens to concerns.
I've been seeing Dr. Boter for a few years now. She's the best. So kind, helpful, and a great doctor.
The appointment I scheduled on ZocDoc was for 945am, but the office called me to confirm a 10am appointment, which I thought was odd. I said fine, had to wait 30 minutes to be seen (not awful). Nurse was extremely rushed, she forgot to take my height I noticed, but I don't care. Dr. Boter was such a sweetheart I really liked her and definitely will be seeing her again. She made me feel very comfortable!
I love Dr. Boter. If I could see her for all my health concerns, I would.
Dr. Boter is hands down the best OB/GYN I have ever seen in NYC. She makes you feel completely calm and relaxed, talks to you as though you are an old friend. She takes the time to really listen to your questions and concerns and responds with very real, approachable and human answers.
Lana is AMAZING. She's so genuine, really easy to talk to, and completely nonjudgmental. I'm normally awkward at the gyno, but this was a completely different experience. She was 10 minutes late, but it was because her dog had a seizure - she kept apologizing, and was so sweet about it even though this was no inconvenience AT ALL! She felt like a friend after the appointment, and I immediately told all of my friends about her because it's not easy finding a good gyno! Highly highly recommend. Trust me!
She is so nice and accomodating and made me feel comfortable.
Office wait this time was a little longer than usual but still not too long of a wait. The appointment itself was smooth and I will be seeing her next year for my next annual visit.
I visited her for the first time for my annual check-up. She is very friendly and is thorough with the examination. It is near my office so I would definitely visit her again. Thank you, Dr. Boter!
Lana took the time to listen to everything I had to say, answered all of my questions, and made conversation with me while she performed my annual so that I was comfortable and relaxed. Highly reccommend.
Dr. Boter is incredibly kind and easy to talk to about anything. The explained everything and all of the possibilities with my medical status and answered all of my questions.

Lana was informative, engaging and efficient and I would highly recommend her! I will definitely be going back to see her for my next annual check up.

Very nice doctor; GREAT bedside manner and makes you feel very comfortable.
Dr. Boter was great - very sweet and reassuring. The front desk receptionist was friendly, and while the nurse that took my blood pressure wasn't overly enthusiastic, she was quick and efficient. Would recommend.

Dr Boter is amazing. Super friendly and funny. She makes the whole experience non-intimidating and easy.
As always, Dr. Boter asked knowledgeable questions based on my history and listened to see if there was any other way she could help me. She reminded me of something I was supposed to follow up on, which shows that she cares about her patients' health and wants them to stay on top of things, too. She's gentle, friendly, and just awesome!
Dr Boter was fantastic, funny, kind and extremely friendly. She made me feel comfortable and the whole appointment was seamless
Dr. Boter is the best. I hope I never have to see another OB-GYN in my life!
Great bedside manner, efficient, capable.
Dr. Boter is amazing, she makes what is an awkward topic and makes it as comfortable, easy, and pleasant as possible. Yearly check ups are a breeze.
it had been a while since i'd had a gyn exam -- and she completely set me at ease. listened to my concerns and read test results from another doctor. caring, compassionate and thorough. loved her.
Never felt more comfortable with obgyn!
I was so pleasantly surprised by my visit! She was incredibly personable, and extremely smart and intuitive! She helped me with so many problems that have plagued me for over a decade in one visit, and gave me insights into my general health without being pushy. This is the first time in my life that I haven't had any health issues or concerns, and it's truly all because of this amazing doctor.
she is wonderful, and the most personable doctor i have ever had!
Dr. Boter was extremely warm, helpful, and well-informed. Highly recommended!
Dr. Boter is absolutely amazing. I have an extensive medical history and get quite anxious meeting a new OB/GYN for the first time, but Dr. Boter put me at ease. She is lovely, listened to my concerns, walked me through everything she was doing and made me feel comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Boter! She is my favorite OB/GYN I have seen! The office seems like it's going through some renovations. The decor is a little outdated, but their check in and patient charts are all digital. The front staff was really friendly and welcoming and my medical assistant was very kind. Great experience! Incredible Dr.! I am almost looking forward to my next annual appointment :-)
Dr. Lana is incredibly professional and made me feel very comfortable during my examination. She was thorough and explained everything in great detail. I would highly recommend seeing her!
Dr Boter was sympathetic, friendly, and straight up. I've never had that experience with a doctor before, much less an OB-GYN. The physical exam was the most comfortable and easy I've ever had. She listened carefully and came up with a possible cause and solution quickly and easily, explaining things to me in a way that made it clear, whilst remaining unpatronising. I wanted to cry with relief. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Boter continues to be lovely and warm, turning an appointment that would normally be somewhat nerve-wracking into an easy experience. I was seen almost immediately upon my arrival, and in and out efficiently without feeling rushed. She has a great mixture of small talk that puts you at ease while asking the right questions - no judgement.
Dr. Boter is amazing! I would highly recommend her to any of my friends for their annual check-up. She was so charming and made me feel super comfortable!
Dr. Boter was great. Friendly, helpful and informative. I would recommend anyone to see her. She's awesome! The nurse who saw me before Dr. Boter wasn't nearly as friendly though. She seemed very rushed, didn't say much and didn't even make eye contact with me. She came in and out of the room once or twice to grab supplies while I was waiting to see the doctor. Overall, I would recommend seeing Dr. Boter, but the nurse should take a lesson from Dr. Boter on friendliness!
I had a great visit with Dr. Boter. She was really nice and listened to everything I had to say. She was thorough and gave me her best and most honest medical advice. Would recommend her!
Amazing experience. Dr. Boter is so kind and truly cares for her patients.
I found my new favorite doctor today. Dr Boter is thorough yet fast, painless, funny, knows what she's doing, asked and answered questions, and I didn't have to wait. The office was clean and comfortable; the staff very friendly and efficient. You couldn't hope for anything more in a doctor or an office visit.
Lana was very sweet and easy to talk to, she was thorough and reviewed my health history with me, and I definitely will be going back to her next year! She made me feel like she cared about my specific needs and answered all my questions with confidence.
Dr Boter was great as usual! Best doctor I've ever had. Highly recommended.
Extremely impressed! First appointment went great and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Made me feel completely comfortable and at ease!!
Dr. Boter was very personable, professional and compassionate. She was knowledgable, patient and had great recommendations. She took her time to explain the diagnosis and treatment plan. Most importantly, she answered my laundry list of questions patiently and thoroughly. She had excellent bedside manner!
Dr. Boter is great. She never rushes you and is so friendly and understanding. I have gone to many gynos and am so happy to finally have found one I am 100% at ease with!
After jumping from doctor to doctor in NYC, I've finally found one who is compassionate, genuine, and excellent at what she does. Not only was Dr. Boter very thorough and patient when answering my questions during my yearly exam, she also put my mind at ease regarding a health concern that was completely unrelated to gynocology. I'm extremely lucky to have found a doctor as wonderful as Lana and I highly recommend her.
It was pretty good - not too long of a wait or anything like that. She didn't tell me exactly what I wanted to hear but gave me an honest professional opinion which was ultimately very helpful. She was caring and the visit went well. Will be returning for future checkups.
She's my favorite doctor, maybe ever. So sweet and helpful, and just puts your mind at ease.
The office was great and Dr. Boter is lovely.
I have been with Dr. Boter for the past year. She has always delivered excellent service with kindness and care.
It's always so good to see Dr. Boter. She's informative and direct while still being warm and caring. Highly recommended!
She was great! really nice and understanding and thoughtful! She made you feel really comfortable and she was easy to talk to!!!! I'm glad I found her!!!
Lana makes you feel at ease with her laid back, caring personality. She's also straight forward and non-judgmental. I recommend!
She's easy to talk to and I'm always in and out in no time.
Very friendly, quick and helpful. Makes you feel completely comfortable.
My doctor retired and I was super bummed as I had been going to her for years and she was the only doctor I had ever really liked a lot. I found Dr. Boter on ZocDoc and went in for a visit this morning. She was great! Found my new doctor!
Dr. Boter is so kind and has a wonderful bedside manner. She has a way of putting patients at ease. I very highly recommend her!
simply the best!
Dr. Boter is SUPER attentive, really nice, and very comfortable to be around. LOVED seeing her.
My experience with Dr. Lana Boter was great. I would definitely recommend her if you're looking for someone who makes going to the OB/GYN more entertaining and less of a drag. She's also very knowledgeable and willing to answer any and all questions.
Dr. Boter was the kindest doctor I have ever seen. Very compassionate and understanding and put me at ease right away (and I hate going to the doctor). The appointment itself was quick and easy, but she also asked caring questions and really listened. I can't recommend her enough. If all doctor's visits were like this I would go all the time.
It's always wonderful to see Dr. Boter. She explains everything so patiently and clearly. Her nurse is professional and efficient.
She's awesome - so easy to talk to and really seems experienced and confident.
She was wonderful as always.
Dr. Lana was fantastic! I went in for an annual exam. She was very prompt and made me feel at ease as she engaged me in small talk about my background and what my needs are. She explained everything that I asked in details. My only two feedback would be: 1) The appointment, though speedy, left me feel a bit rushed. I've experienced the same thing with another doctor so it might be a New York City thing; and 2) Would wish she had a bit more recs on the specialists in the network for my other follow-ups. Also, no wait time for me. Would come back & highly recommend her!
I've been seeing Dr. Boter now for 6+ years. She has made each and every appointment brief, yet pleasant. She has a warm and friendly demeanor and is gentle yet thorough during her examinations. Highly recommend!
I can not say enough about her amazing bedside manner. Although I had to wait a while to be seen, the doctor made it worth it. She really listens to you and she was genuine and sympathetic. I have had a bad year health-wise and she listened to my medical issues like I wish every doctor could. After other doctors' brusque and sometimes callous treatment, I love this lady and I would definitely come back. My only issue is that I was disappointed that she does not deliver babies anymore, and I am trying to get pregnant! She refers patients to another doctor who does, who I will check out on ZocDoc.
Dr. Lana herself was very pleasant and engaging. However, the staff wasn't as friendly. The place itself wasn't as well maintained either, it looked a bit dirty and worn out. I waited in the room for about 30-40 minutes before the doctor came in. Would i recommend this place to anyone? probably not...Not because of Dr. Lana (she is good) but because of the overall experience.
She made me feel extremely comfortable and taken care of. The staff was extremely efficient. Great experience all around.
Love Dr. Boter and highly recommend her. Great bedside manner and really cares about her patients.
Dr. Boter is a great doctor! Very sweet and easy to talk to. Appointments are quick and to the point.
Very pleasant. Dr Boter made me feel at ease, the examination was quick, it was actually over before I had a chance to be nervous. She answered all my questions and was very patient with me.
The Best. Professional, direct and thorough.
Very prompt and professional. The right amount of "friendly" for an annual exam.
Dr. Boter was so great! I left feeling more knowledgable about everything because she stressed wanting to explain everything. I really appreciated her taking the time to do that and she was so friendly. I highly reccommend her and look forward to my next appointment!
She has a great bedside manner and very knowledgeable.
After having a horrible experience with a doctor, I was relieved to have found Dr. Boter. The office is a bit on the dank side but Dr. Boter's care makes up for it. Her staff could use a little more kindness. I did feel uncomfortable when asked to disrobe before having my weight and blood pressure taken. I'm used to doing so only before seeing the doctor and not for the medical assistant.
She was very warm, approachable and informative. Her staff was friendly.
I've been going to Dr. Boter for the past two years (since moving to Manhattan) and love her. She's very knowledgeable and pleasant, and I have to say the only gynecologist I've ever liked and I've gone to about 10 different ones in the past ten years.
Highly recommended - thank you
Dr. Boter was knowledgeable and professional but what I really liked was her warmth and her humor. She made me feel comfortable right away.
Dr. Boter was very welcoming! I just moved to the area and was looking for a new doctor. She answered all my questions and was personable. She listened to all of my concerns and was extremely thorough. I would highly recommend her!
My first visit to Dr Boter was excellent. I had been rather unhappy with my previous OBGYN and Dr Boter was such a pleasant and refreshing change. She answered all my questions and concerns and also made sure to educate me about various subjects.
Dr. Boter makes you feel extremely comfortable. She is very friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend going to her!
Have been going to Lana Boter for the past 4 years and she's wonderful - highly recommend.
Dr Boter was wonderful!! She immediately put me at ease and had one of the best bedside manners I've seen. She did a great job of keeping up casual conversation throughout the appointment to distract me from the uncomfortable feeling of a Pap smear. I highly recommend her to any woman!
I've now seen Dr. Boter twice and she really is fantastic! She's non-judgemental, extremely fast and really cares. I highly recommend her!
This was my first time at Dr. Boter. The staff is friendly and the check-in was completely painless - all electronic so no fighting with blotchy pens or writing something in the wrong box. Dr. Boter is personable and caring. She really listens and has a great sense of humor. I usually have a notable high blood pressure for annual exams, but not anymore! I highly recommend her.
Dr. Boter was professional, cheerful and nonjudgmental during my appointment. She made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions with ease. I'd highly recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Boter was great! She answered all of my questions and was extremely professional and put me at ease.
She's absolutely amazing.
I have been seeing Dr. Boter for many years - she is the best doctor I've ever had. She is always very friendly and spends the time to listen to and address my concerns and questions.
I showed up a little bit early, but she saw my right away. The location isn't quite convenient for me, but it's worth the trip to have a great experience.
Dr. Boter is fantastic - I found her through ZocDoc when I first moved to NYC. I was nervous to find a gyno not through a personal references (as my friends did not have any references within my network). Nevertheless, I've been going to her for years now, and cannot recommend Dr. Boter highly enough. Warm bedside manner, always returns urgent calls right away. I feel very comfortable in her care.
Visting Dr. Boter was an incredibly pleasant experience considering that it was an annual gyn exam. She's kind, intelligent, articulate, and explains everything thoroughly. She's also very straightforward about what kinds of procedures/options are available as well as what she thinks you really need--something that's very valuable in a world where doctors are frequently trying to upsell you. I will definitely continue to go to Dr. Boter.
she is wonderful but not recommended if you need to rush somewhere after or if you need to step away from work for the appointment. however i feel that the wait is so long because she truly cares about her patients and wants to spend enough time with each person.
Always a good visit and she is so sweet and accomidating.
Really wonderful and made me feel right at home. Definitely a great choice!
Absolutely wonderful! Knowledgeable, thorough, and completely put me at ease.
Dr. Boter is so incredibly nice! She's easy to talk to and appointments don't feel rushed at all.
Dr is very professional and make me feel very comfortable. The waiting time is a bit long.
Had incredible anxiety about finding a new OBGYN in the city but am so glad I found Dr. Boter. As a new patient I wasn't looking forward to filling out mountains of paperwork when I got there but the receptionist handed me an ipad to fill out a basic profile in the waiting room while she copied my insurance card and ID. I was called in within 10 minutes, waited for maybe another 10 or 15 after my height, weight and blood pressure were measured. Dr. Boter was instantly warm and welcoming, she asked me all the essential questions about family history and health/allergies to complete my profile. I felt comfortable being totally candid and she was very thorough and patient when answering my questions. She had a wonderful bedside manner, letting me know what she was doing beforehand while cracking a couple jokes which made the annual PAP procedure much more pleasant than I anticipated. I highly recommend Dr. Boter, she really makes you feel comfortable and secure. Don't let the clunky elevator unnerve you, it was a really pleasant visit and totally worth it
Dr. Boter is by far one of the best medical professionals I've seen. She puts you at ease with her humor and kind beside manner. Her years of experience are reassuring and I highly recommend her services.
She was incredibly sweet. I would highly recommend her!
Fantastic experience! Dr. Boter was knowledgeable, made me feel extremely at ease and took plenty of time to answer all of my questions.
it was my first visit and she made me feel EXTREMELY comfortable. very professional and caring. i would deffenetly recommend her to other people/
Dr. Boter tells it like it is--which I appreciate. She's usually available when I need to see her and always helpful.
Dr. Lana Boter is the only gynecologist in New York (and Ive been through about ten) who has really been able to help me. She is very kind and thoughtful as well. The NYC dating scene has been especially difficult but she was able to help me through a lot.
Great doctor, professional and caring
Dr. Boter is my favorite OBGYN ever! She's so personable and friendly and totally makes you feel relaxed and comfortable, and even keeps conversation to distract you during your exam (which is great when you want to avoid thinking about it!). I'm recommending her to everyone I know. She's phenomenal.
Dr. Boter is lovely! I've dealt with judgemental doctors in the past and so have been unwilling to see one in years. Dr. Boter completely swept away those fears by being her friendly, knowledgeable self! I will definitely be back.
Dr Boter is proficient at her job but she lacks in bedside manner. I found her to be abrasive and the whole appointment felt rushed.
Dr. Boter is the best! I just moved to NYC and was terrified to see a new ob-gyn after having the same one for years. Dr. Boter could not have been more helpful or made me feel more comfortable. I highly recommend her.
My visit with Dr. Lana Boter was very pleasant. She is a remarkable person and one feels comfortable in her presence. I especially liked her automated check-in procedure - entering your information directly into an iPad. I will strongly recommend her to my friends and associates.
my first visit to the obgyn for standard checkup and Dr Boter was great! During the checkup she was friendly and engaging, made quick conversation to get to know you, and I was good to go in less than 20min!
Lana Boter was amazing. She is very personable and caring.
She's wonderful, thorough, and super sweet. She truly is phenomenal. Please see her if you can! Dr. Boter is comforting, intelligent and will explain everything before and as she goes. She encourages questions as well. Best gynecolegist in all of NYC.
Dr Boter is very and kind and made me feel comfortable.
So excited to have found an OBGYN like doctor Boter! She was so personable and helpful with all my questions. Unlike other doctors offices I have visited she did not make me feel rushed at all!
She's amazing. So attentive, listens to all my needs, thoroughly answers all my questions, and makes sure everything gets taken care of in a good amount of time without me having to feel rushed. Seriously best Gyno I've been to.
Had a great first experience with Dr. Boter today! She took me right on time and gave me great advice for some new medication.
I've been seeing Dr. Boter for a few years now and would recommend her to anyone. She's warm and friendly, takes time to answer any questions, and genuinely cares about your well-being. I'm usually in and out in 30 minutes when I go to her office.
I absolutely LOVE Dr. Boter. (Even more than my primary care doctor!) I have recommended her to many friends and family and everyone loves her as much as I do. She's very comprehensive. No question is too dumb to ask. I had terrible migraines while taking most birth control and Dr. Boter recommended one that didn't give me any migraines at all. She's great and if she accept your insurance I highly suggest seeing her.
She has THE BEST bedside manner and takes the time to discuss everything with me.
First visit with Dr. Boter and I will definitely be back. She was very warm, relaxed and personable. I felt very comfortable with her and would recommend her highly!
Dr. Boter is warm and consultative. She is very knowledgeable and makes the overall experience informative and as painless as possible.
She is truly great!
I am so happy I found her - she is BY FAR the most attentive and personable physician i have ever seen - and giving the intimate nature of this field it was beyond helpful. i never felt rushed or pushed - she listened and advised and did her best to put me at ease. Also, i thought it was a nice touch that there were interesting magazines in the exam room as you wait between the intake and the actual exam.
My favorite OB/GYN ever. She was so helpful, informative, and beyond friendly. I wanted to ask her out to lunch just for fun. Seriously awesome.
She was great! She really put me at ease and was completely non-judgmental, which has been very hard for me to find in a GYN.
Today was my first visit with Dr. Boter. I was greeted by friendly staff and taken for my appointment early. Dr. Boter is extremely warm and pleasant and obviously cares about her patients. I am lookin forward to seeing her for my future visits and will be recommending her to friends.
Professional, honest, efficient...one of the best doctors I've seen!
Dr. Boter is great! Super sweet/personable and addresses any and all questions/concerns promptly and professionally.
She's the BEST!
Dr. Boter was friendly, helpful, and overall amazing!
I've been going to Dr. Boter for 4 years now for annual check-ups and for any issues in between and every visit is great. She makes you feel very comfortable, is extremely thorough, and gentle. The office could use a facelift, but that's pretty irrelevant (in my opinion). Staff is not overly friendly and wait time is minimal (in my 4 years, the longest I've waited in the room was about 45 minutes due to overbooking). Test results are processed quickly (less than a week) and Dr. Boter will personally call you no matter the results. Highly recommend, Dr. Boter!
I was happy after visiting with Dr. Boter. She will definitely see me again.
She's so sweet and made me feel very comfortable.
My visit today was great. Dr.Boter was very nice and didn't hesitate to answer any of my questions. She mad me feel comfortable and at ease. I have had bad experiences before but she really helped turn a dreaded doctors visit into a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend her. The office staff was friendly and approachable.
Doctor Boter is a very nice woman and absolutely competent doctor but I waited for two hours before she was able to see me. When I asked her assistant about an hour into the wait what was going on (very respectfully), she snapped at me that Doctor Boter was behind schedule, as if I were the one inconveniencing her. Not sure what was going on there but if you don't have two hours to waste on doctors appointments, this might not be the best place to go.
Excellent, as always. Dr. Boter makes you so comfortable in what is always the least comfortable of all doctor's visits. I highly recommend her.
I've been seeing Dr. Boter for a few years now, and she is fantastic - very professional and efficient!
I've lived in the city for 8 years and usually try to time my gyno visits to when I head to my parents for the holidays. A friend recommended Dr. Boter to me and I am SOLD. She's a gem! As someone who's been to a fair share of shoddy doctors in this town, I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Dr. Boter made me feel comfortable and relaxed during my visit, answered questions and didn't rush the examination. Am happy to continue seeing her for my next check-up.
It is always a quick simple and straightforward appointment with Dr. Boter. She is super chill and no BS - she'll talk honestly with you and give great answers. Exactly what makes a great doctor!
She really made me feel at ease! Very personable, professional and efficient
She is amazing; probably the best I've ever had in the field. Her nurse could develop better people skills
Dr. Boter is very friendly and has a great bedside manner. The waiting time was minimal. Dr. Boter also informed me it had not been a full year since my last annual visit and asked if I wanted to check to make sure my insurance would cover the visit so I wouldn't be hit with a bill for the visit. FYI, Anthem BC/BS goes by calendar year for anyone wondering, no need to wait the actual 365 days from the previous visit. So I was good to continue the appointment and really appreciated Dr. Boter looking out for me. Other than that, the appt was quick and painless. I will be back next year.
I've been seeing Dr. Boter for 3 years. She is always friendly and cheerful and makes sure to listen and respond to any concerns I have. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Boter was extremely sweet and personable. I felt very comfortable with her.
She was really great! Very kind and professional. She answered all my questions.
Dr. Boter saw me for about five minutes in her office for what she called a "consultation" for a birth control method, and she said she couldn't help me and referred me to Planned Parenthood. Then, I found out she charged my insurance for that office visit. Probably could have rejected me over the phone, but hey, it's probably the easiest billing she's ever made.
I love Dr. Boter. She is good at her job and makes a potentially awkward appointment feel like a dream.
I always enjoy my visits with Doctor Boter. She really cares about her patients and is an excellent OB GYN!
Dr. Boter is one of the best dr.s I'v ever had
She was extremely kind and supportive.
Dr. Boter is one of the nicest doctors I have ever been to. She has a very pleasant bedside manner and makes her patients feel totally comfortable. I have recommended her to all of my friends!
Lana Boter is absolutely great! She is super friendly, actually shows interest and concern with me as her patient and moves through all her questions and the whole process quickly so that you are in and out! Love her!
Dr. Boter is amazing - she made me feel so comfortable and calm. Her bedside manner is great, she is very sweet, she listens and has the answers that you're looking for. She also engages you in conversation during the procedure and next thing you know you're done! Easy, fast and almost pain free! Cannot recommend her highly enough.
Great doctor. I am so glad I found her.
Dr Boter is thorough and patiently listens to all concerns. She answers the questions asked and even the ones you haven't thought of!
Would highly recommend!!
Dr. Boter was very professional and quickly put me at ease. She answered all my questions and made recommendations. I will definitely be returning for my next annual exam.
Dr. Boter really is the best! I'm so glad I found her! It's a little difficult to make appointments by phone at her office, so I'm very glad that I can book through Zocdoc.
Dr. Boter is a very friendly and warm doctor. My experience with her was extremely positive, and I will definitely go back to see her again. I highly recommend!
She was wonderful and I highly recommend!!
Dr. Boter is my favorite doctor of all time. She's so calm and cool and makes sure you understand everything. It's clear that she cares about you in everything she says and does. A serious gem.
I cannot say enought about Dr. Boter. She is thorough and smart but also a real person. I go out of my way to see her, she is no where near my home or work, but it is worth it to see her.
Dr. Boter is sincere, takes her time, listens to your concerns and yet you'll still be in and out of there right on time. I used to dread my annual exams until I found her. Any anxiety you may have will--poof--be gone, when she talks you. This doc has an A-game sense of humor!! You'll be in great hands with this smart lady.
I will never go to another dr for my annual again! I highly recommend her to any woman and will pass on the word ! She made me feel so incredibly comfortable after I had so much anxiety for not getting an annual in a couple years. I am so glad I finally found my lady dr!
Dr. Boter is great! She listens, asks the right questions, and she's very thorough. Talking to her always puts me at ease, and most importantly, she's very gentle. I also love the new electronic check-in process. I've never had a bad experience, and I also like her as a person.
Dr. Boter is so nice and she makes you feel very comfortable. I would recommend her to any of my friends. I had to wait a little at my last visit but they are usually very good about seeing patients on time.
Dr. Boter rocks! I'm a four-year patient of hers, and she is always friendly, thorough, and kind. Highly recommend!
Overall, I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Boter! She made me feel very comfortable and has a great, positive attitude.
I've only had one appointment with Dr. Boter, but truly one of the nicest doctors I've ever met. She was very attentive, sweet, and intelligent. I would recommend her to anyone.
Excellent! I am very happy with my experience.
The Doctor was very nice and efficient
Very nice and professional, always makes me comfortable and answers all questions.
Going to the gynecologist is never a favorite activity but Dr. Boter could not have made me feel more comfortable on my first visit. She was great and the visit was so quick!
Great doctor, HORRIBLE STAFF. Considering looking for a new gyno because I do not want to deal with the staff again. Also offices are very outdated.
Dr. Boter is great! She is very kind, knowledgeable, and takes her time with you and answers every question with a thoughtful response. After trying out many gynos in NYC and many disappointments, she truly stands out. I do agree with other commentators that the office is not the most beautiful or welcoming, but the location is convenient and I had absolutely no concerns about hygiene or cleanliness.
Short and sweet. Very professional and makes you feel comfortable.
Doctor Boter was absolutely fantastic. She listened to all my concerns and took the time to answer all the questions. When you have had a dismissive gynecologist in the past, you can certainly appreciate her expertise all the more. Don't let any doctor tell you it's mental when it comes to your body because she certainly won't. Would highly recommend!
I had my first appointment with Dr Boter today and found her to be amazing. Very nice, not rushed at all. The entrance to the office is a little off putting and the offices are dated. The service and personality of Dr Boter more then compensates for the cosmetic of the office. One of the best doctors I have seen.
Arrived ahead of my appointment time and didn't have to wait at all - everyone was very friendly and didn't have to wait long for the doctor to arrive either. All in all the experience was quick and painless - as all doctor's appointments should be!
Great choice for anyone who does not have babies in the plan! In the short time I spent with Dr. Boter I felt at ease, although in such a vulnerable situation. To my disappointment, Dr. Boter no longer delivers babies, and this was one of the predominate reasons I chose her practice. After informing me of this, she gave me some great advice and offered to refer me to a highly recommended OBGYN when the time comes!
I absolutely love her! She's very pleasant and made me feel very comfortable.
Great doctor - so glad to have found her!
Every time I have an appointment with Dr. Boter she never ceases to amaze me. I was pretty down in the dumps before my spot but her demeanor and cheerfulness really turned my day around. She's the best, the absolute best!
Visit was delightful. Greeted warmly at the door by the friendly front desk staff. Big smiles all around. My appointment was at 9 am and I was out the door on my way to work by 9:25! New iPads for EMR are great too. Dr. Boter was warm and full of friendly chat about travels. Visit was quick and cheerful. Grateful to have found a wonderful doctor in the city.
I used to dread my annual exams and have seen a few different doctors but Dr. Boter is a great doctor, who can put even the worst worriers (me) at ease.
Dr. Boter is amazing! She is professional yet personable and takes the time to get to know you! I don't dread going to get my annual exam every year because with Dr. Boter, I know it with go smoothly!
Love her! She is so sweet and I always feel very comfortable around her.
Very quick! Came in maybe 20 minutes before my appointment, was seen before my appointment time. Dr. Boter was very personable and made me feel comfortable. Great experience and highly recommend!
I recently moved to NYC and felt overwhelmed by the task of finding a new OB/GYN. Dr. Boter came recommended by a friend and I couldn't be more pleased with finding her. She came right into the room to discuss my medical history and get to know me. She was so warm, relatable and patient. She explained everything carefully, making sure I understood exactly what was happening and why. I left the visit feeling like I found a doctor who really cares. I would definitely recommend her!
She is a wonderful doctor and is fast. She also is very willing to answer questions. Boter made me feel very comfortable and relaxed.
She really made me feel at ease and the process was fairly simple. No follow-up yet but it's only been a day. I will be returning.
Very personable and easy to talk to. My visit was as a new patient and she immediately put me at ease.
Lana was such a great doctor to visit, super friendly but straight up at the same time. I felt very comfortable and would highly recommend. She also understands the nature of insurance and works with you so you don't get hugely stung.
Lana Boter was warm, professional, respectful, and knew her stuff. The nurses were friendly and kind. I highly recommend her.
She was very thorough and friendly. I will definitely be back.
I've been using Dr Boter now for years (found her on ZocDoc) and absolutely love her. She's so sweet and easy to talk to and I would recommend her to anyone & everyone.
The office building itself is not the best, but do not let that make you feel uneasy. She is THE BEST!! Literally started texting all my friends right after I left to give them the reco. So friendly, so knowledgable, and she really makes you feel comfortable when she's doing the actual exam. BEST DOC IN NYC HANDS DOWN!
Found my new doctor! Very nice, honest and down to earth bedside manner, which I needed as a new patient. Did NOT feel rushed. Made me feel very comfortable about issues I was experiencing and my questions. I was seen very quickly (office has a fast, advanced checkin routine).
I was very impressed. this was my first time signing up with ZocDoc and seeing this doctor. The process was easy, quick, and professional. Very impressed.
Dr Boter is awesome! She is sweet and has a great bedside manner and she takes the time to hear out your concerns without rushing you. She makes you feel comfortable and cared for. Great doctor!
She was friendly and warm, and she explained everything very clearly and thoroughly. I felt like she listened to my concerns and gave me thoughtful answers. I was impressed.
Dr Boter is great. One of the best gynecologists I've been to. I think that the office needs to be spruced up though - new furniture, paint, flooring, etc. Her office should reflect the quality of her work and bedside manner and right now it doesn't.
I cannot recommend Dr. Boter enough. She was fantastic!
Dr. Boter is great! She took the time to listen to me and talk through birth control options. Her bedside manner is fabulous. The only downside is that the wait at her office, particularly with an afternoon appointment, can be a pain. It hasn't bothered me enough to want to go elsewhere though!
She is just so warm and wonderful. Great bedside manner. I felt very comfortable.
Dr. Boter is so professional and clearly cares about her patients. I've only had the best service from her and would recommend her to any of my friends!
I came to Doctor Boter even when she did not accept the insurance I have. She is always kind, professional and efficient without making me feel rushed. I recommend her all the time.
she was very attentive and made me feel very comfortable.
It was my first time here. My experience went smoothly. Dr. Boter is really friendly and makes you feel comfortable.
As always, Dr. Boter is literally the best gynecologist ever. Also I wish I were just regular friends with her because she is so cool. Plus they are using ipads now for getting patient info - great upgrade!
Dr. Boter is knowledgeable, thorough, and extremely efficient. She doesn't rush during the appointment but she also doesn't waste your time. She asks probing but completely appropriate questions to understand her patient's medical history. Her assessments and recommendations are clear and concise. I know exactly what to expect and what I need to do next. My appointment was in the middle of a work day and I was very pleased when I was taken right away and the entire visit was over within 40 minutes. My one observation is that the office environment, including the waiting room and examination room, is rather tired and could use some upgrading
Dr. Boter is the best. This was my first attempt in finding an ob-gyn in the city, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. She is warm, welcoming, and easy to talk to. I went for my annual and although these visits can be extremely uncomfortable, she chatted with me the whole time and made it easy to get through. I also was able to talk to her about my concerns. She took the time to listen to me, laid out the options she thought might work, and then let me choose - I didn't feel rushed during the appointment at all. Overall, she is hands down the best ob-gyn I could have found and I will definitely be going back to her.
Lana is great! Makes you feel comfortable, informed, and is very prompt.
Dr. Boter was happy to see me even though I was over 20 minutes late (...NYC traffic). She remembered things about me and helped answer some questions I had. She was also really chatty during the appointment, which I really appreciate in such an uncomfortable situation. Such a great doc! I highly recommend to anyone who is switching doctors or just moved to the city.
Amazing gyno. Very detailed and personable.
I love her. I wish all my doctors could be like her. The only doctor I trust.
It was my first visit, and Dr. Boter sat down and spoke with me for a good while during the appointment. She was professional and yet had the approachability of a friend - I believe she cares about her patients. I will continue to see Dr. Boter, and recommend her.
Dr Boter is an excellent doctor, who explains all the medical matters in an easy to understand way. Dr Boter is a truly wonderful person. She makes the visit at her office a real pleasure. This the best OBGYN I've ever met.
She was awesome - made a usually not so pleasant experience very bearable. I would definitely recommend her!
Overall I was very happy with my visit. I waiting for 20 minutes and the exam lasted no more than 10 minutes, but I got everything I needed done.
As always... Efficient, clean with very pleasant support staff. Dr. Boter is the absolute best!
Dr. Boter was competent and efficient but was very anti-IUD, which is my preferred method of contraception. She shared this with me which made me feel quite uncomfortable and I won't be back to see her because of this. Her staff is helpful.
Dr Lana Boter was awesome. She is so nice and really puts one at ease. I never felt as though she was rushing to finish and was there to answer all my questions I had. I would for sure recommend her to anyone who is the need for an OBGYN. I will most certainly be returning as a patient.
Dr. Boter is very professional and helpful. I only waited 10 minutes and then a few minutes in the room for her. Highly recommend!
She's always great friendly,courteous, and listens to your concerns. I'd say she's kind of a rare find here in manhattan.
So nice, very friendly. Makes you feel so comfortable and you are in and out!
Lana Boter is quite good. Unfortunately, the front desk is far from that. My prescription could no longer be fulfilled by my local pharmacy and had to be redone via mail order. I alerted the office the moment it happened, then followed up with the necessary information the next business day. When I did not receive word back, I followed up again and faxed over the necessary documents that I thought they would have retrieved online at this point. Another week later and the prescription is not showing up on my insurance. I follow up again, they said they'll look into it and get back to me the same day. I hear nothing back, and then when I call again to follow up, it's as if I'm starting all over again, providing all the same details I did before. Looks like I'm not getting my birth control. I'm sorry that Dr. Boter has an unreliable staff, but I'm not going back for my next annual.
Very helpful and easy to talk to
Wonderful. Dr. Boter was thorough and kind. She patiently answered all my questions and left me feeling very well cared for. I took a couple business cards so that I can recommend her to friends!
She's very efficient and personable. The wait (especially in a thin gown in a cold exam room) was a bit frustrating but overall it was not a terrible experience. She also doesn't bother to follow up if everything is normal, but she warns you that's the case, so it's not a big deal.
She was amazing. Honestly made me feel completely at ease. She is exactly the kind of doctor you want for these type of things ;)
Dr. Boter is great! Friendly, efficient and knowledgeable.
Great doctor! Wait time was a little long but worth it.
She was very easy to talk to and had a great bedside manner. Her staff was friendly and I was seen very quickly. I would definitely be going to her again in the future.
She is amazing.
She is the best OBGYN! I absolutely adore her. She is thorough and makes you feel very comfortable. Answers every question in detail. 5 stars.
Dr. Boter was great! She was so kind! I was early to my appt, and she saw me immediately.
She is the best doctor I have been to. It is obvious she cares for her patients and she will be my doctor for a long time!!
Made me feel at ease, very attentive, patient, I can't say enough nice things! I felt like she would've stayed and answered my questions for another hour without a second thought. Lovely, professional, intelligent, and kind.
Every year I go to Dr. Boter and every year i have the same review. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING. I am scared of everything and she knows how to calm me down and feel at ease. (thats not easy). Amazing doctor. WOuld never go to anyone else! Thank you!
Dr. Botor is amazing!
Great experience overall!
She made me feel very comfortable and was professional, thorough and personable.
Very friendly and easy to talk to
Super patient and kind . Highly recommend if you are one of those awkward patients or nervous
This was by far one of the best appointments I've experienced. Dr. Boter was friendly, amicable and straight to the point in regards to the questions I had for her. And I waited less than 5 minutes to be seen by her!
quick and efficient, she's also REALLY nice and easy to talk to
Dr. Boter has been my OB/GYN for about four years. She's always friendly, helpful and takes time to answer any questions - even if they aren't OB related. I highly recommend her.
She was great- made me feel super comfortable and at ease. I will definitely going back to see her.
I had NO idea that a doctor could be as loving, sweet, and genuine as Dr. Boter. She genuinely cares about her patients which is a rare quality. She is by far the best doctor (any type) that I've ever had.
I'm obsessed with her, seriously SO cool. Very chill, she gets women, she's funny and bold, she is invested in you and your health! Love going to the gyno, who knew?!
She is personable, thorough and on top of everything...in a very positive pro-active way that sets you at ease to know that she really cares!
Dr. Boter was absolutely incredible. She is kind, attentive, and extremely knowledgeable. I have seen many ob/gyns and she has been the best.
Great doc! She is super attentive and knowledgeable, plus she's funny.
Dr Botor is wonderful. She always makes me feel comfortable and her staff is always so helpful and friendly.
Dr. Boter is amazing. Her professionalism and bedside manner are phenomenal. She is one of the best doctors I have ever seen.
Dr. Boter is thorough but also personable. Two of the most important qualities I look for in a doctor.
Excellent. I highly recommend her and plan to keep her as my doctor as long as I can!
Dr. Boter is quick, efficient, and extremely approachable. She made me feel at ease with my concerns and talked me through the examination. I recommend her wholeheartedly!
Dr. Boter is the absolute best! Her office team is also amazing and super efficient.
Excellent doctor, very kind and professional.
Both visits - she took the time to talk to me. I never felt rushed. The exams went smoothly and without any discomfort.
Dr. Boter is very kind and professional and made me feel comfortable during my visit. The process for new patients was simple and I didn't have to wait very long at all. Highly reccomended!
So friendly and knowledgeable. Was my first appointment with her and made me feel really comfortable the whole time.
Personable and non-judgmental. The office is digitizing it's records very smoothly!
Great annual visit! So happy she is my doctor :)
Lovely! Great attitude & very professional
I've been seeing Dr. Boter for over 2 years now and I think she's absolutely fabulous. Her bedside manner is undeniably one of the best I've ever encountered. She's patient, explanatory, and very thorough. I've sent numerous friends to her as well, and they're all very happy. I've had 3 other gynecologists and she's by far the most personable and professional I've been to.
Dr. Boter was great - super easy to talk to and nothing was awkward or uncomfortable. I had an issue two months later and she was helpful in solving the problem.
First time seeing Dr. Boter. She was extremely professional and kind. I felt very comfortable and well taken care of.
Dr. Boter is a fantastic doctor. She is friendly, knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner.
Very kind and personable. Really happy with my experience with Dr. Boter. The wait time was close to an hour, which was frustrating but worth it once you actually are able to see her.
If all doctors were this good, healthcase would be perfect! She is personable, professional and knowledgeable.
Dr. Boter has an excellent bedside manner, if not a little rushed. She was running behind schedule through no fault of her own- so I don't think her appointments are always late. She is very knowledgeable and will get you in and out of your annual check-up within 45 min (plus first time consultation).
Dr. Boter was great, but the wait time is terrible. At every step of the visit there was significant wait time. Dr. Boter is very easy to talk to, however, and was quick but thorough in my annual exam.
Dr. Boter is sincere in her interactions and very attentive to her patients.
Highly professional and warm. Wonderful doctor, could not recommend her more.
Dr. Boter is great! I have been seeing her for about 4 years now. Very friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable.
Very thourough. Made me feel very comfortable. She address issues, making sure I understand everything.
Dr. Boter is a very pleasant doctor. The office and waiting room experience leaves much to be desired, however. I waited for an hour and a half and there were not even enough seats in the waiting room to accommodate all the patients (there were about 10 chairs-- it should have been enough)
Very caring and kind as well as professional.
Great to talk to! Made the appointment as comfortable as possible.
She made me feel really comfortable and she was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
Dr. Boter is super friendly!
She's fantastic, love her!
Honestly, if the wait time was under 30 mins I would not be considering finding another specialist. It's unfortunate that I've experience the long wait time in the only 2 appointment made. Overall, the doctor has a charming personality and is engaging with her patients but the delay to be seen is very stressful.
Dr. Boter is very charming. She puts you at ease with her calm disposition. It is obvious that she enjoys her job. I would recommend her to everyone especially someone who is apprehensive about going to a Gynecologist.
Dr. Boter has such excellent bedside manner. I've had various traumatic gyno experiences and she was wonderful. She put me at ease, explained everything thoroughly, and nothing felt rushed.
She was wonderful, very apologetic about the wait time and then spent an extremely long time with me. Well worth the wait!
I visited Dr. Boter for my annual exam. Dr. Boter is very personable and warm. She makes sure that you are comfortable and is very patient in answering any questions. I will definitely visit Dr. Boter again.
Dr. Boter is very professional with great bedside manner. Definitely makes you feel comfortable/at ease and makes sure to cover everything.
Dr. Boter is truly the best. She makes me feel at ease, even when talking about uncomfortable subjects, explains everything very thoroughly, and seems to genuinely care about my well-being. Plus she is just fun to chat with! I can't recommend her highly enough!
Dr Boter was very professional and friendly. I typically have a difficult time with all my doctors especially when the visit is sensitive in nature, but I was comfortable in speaking with her.
I felt at ease with the assistants and Dr. Boter.
Amazing!! My appointment was for 11:10 but she saw me at 10:30. She was super sweet and spoke to me in a way I could understand her, not in "doctor talk". Highly recommended.
I'm a 25 year old living in NYC and had previously had horrific experiences with past OB GYNs. My previous doctor was clearly just pushing one specific pill and not taking my opinion into consideration. Dr Boter is the exact opposite. I feel incredibly comfortable speaking openly with her and she definitely listens to my concerns and needs in regards to overall health and birth control. I highly recommend her and have sent all my friends to her and they love her as well.
Dr. Boter is great, she really cares about her patients. She was worth the wait.
Truly the best at what she does; Informative, attentive, and extremely personable. Perfect ratings all the way!
Dr. Boter was very nice and friendly. However, she clipped me a bit with the metal instrument during the pap smear, which resulted in minor bleeding.
Despite the long wait to be seen, Dr. Boter was apologetic and made my appointment efficient and quick to not have me miss a work meeting.
Dr Boter was great. She answered all my questions and was very sympathetic about my health concerns.
She was wonderful!! The wait was a little annoying but her personality made it worth it. She made jokes and lighten the mood. No one really loves being prodded and poked. Very helpful with my questions. Will go to her again.
I have been a patient of Dr. Boter's for 3-4 years now and I can't say a negative thing about my visits. She is kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable.
So kind, professional and thorough. Excellent bedside manner, and she even apologized for the wait time. I would definitely recommend her to friends/family in the city.
Dr. Boter has a great bedside manner and is very easy to talk to. Wait time was reasonable, 10 minutes maybe. Appointment went by quickly but I didn't feel rushed at all. Will be back for next year's annual exam.
Dr. Boter is amazing! I definitely recommend her.
Though the wait was sort of long, Dr. Boter's bedside manner was phenomenal - almost shocking to see a Dr. have such patience and compassion these days! Her evaluation was thorough. Very happy I tried this doctor and will recommend her!
very nice, kind, sweetheart!
Super friendly and made the appointment relaxed and not awkward at all. Kept the conversation going and was very helpful with all my questions
Dr. Boter is always easy to talk to and helpful.
Dr. Boter was very personable, and answered all my questions. She took the time to get to know my personal history, and had some very helpful suggestions. I highly recommend her services.
Very good, Dr. Boter was really nice, warm and professional.
I love Dr. Boter. She is very knowledgeable about her work and is also interested in her patients on a personal level. She even asked me about a work-related problem I told her about at my last appointment a year ago! She chats through the whole appointment and the exam is over before you know it. I will continue to use Dr. Boter and will recommend her whenever possible.
She's the best!
This was my first time at Dr. Boter's office for an annual exam. Dr. Boter was really great. She was very personable and easy to talk to. She really listened to everything I had to say, and gave me great advice. She is truly knowledgeable. I usually don't like going to the doctor's office (especially gynos) but my experience with her was wonderful. The only set back is that my appointment was at 10:10 and I got out at 12pm. Tooooo long!
Warm and friendly. Took the time to talk about my medical concerns and made an effort to get to know me personally.
I have never felt more comfortable with a doctor and an experience at the OBGYN as a whole. She's fantastic!
My favorite doctor by far - this was my first visit and I felt so comfortable and she answered all my questions thoroughly and patiently. Highly recommend!!
Will not be going back. Dr. Boter made me feel comftorable during my visit however her office is horrible. No one answers the phone, they charged me a co-pay eventhough the annual visit is covered and when I mentioned that to them theye said "the billing department is in another building and you will be reimbursed". How does that even make sense? Took me almost a year to be reinbursed.
She was great!!!! So sweet and professional!
Dr. Boter is amazing - caring, extremely thorough and visibly passionate about her job and her patients. I've been to multiple OBGYNs trying to find the right one, and I'm pretty sure I just did!
She made me feel comfortable right away, she is very professional and accurate in explaining every thing to me
Fantastic! She makes you feel so comfortable from the moment she walks through the door. Very easy to get along with and made my first experience completely stress-free. Without hesitation I would recommend her to any friend.
I LOVE THIS WOMAN! I've seen her twice now for two different annual checkups, and she always makes me feel super comfortable. She has a great bedside manner and keeps things quick & as non-awkward as possible. For my second visit, she remembered details about me that weren't typical medical details, which just makes the whole thing feel personal. She's easy-going, professional, and I always leave feeling great (after a gyno appointment? I know!) Would recommend to all my lady-friends!
Makes her patients feel very comfortable and cared for. She listens and is attentive. Makes sure you are taken care of.
The appointment got off to a rocky start when I got there at 8:45 and the office didn't open until precisely 9 am when my appointment was, but, Dr. Boter was great. I only ended up waiting about 10 minutes. She was very respectful, had terrific bedside manner, and really made the whole appointment as seamless as possible. I've already recommended her to two of my friends, and will definitely return. She was thorough and especially since going to the OBGYN sucks, it wasn't as bad as expected.
She was quick, efficient, very friendly, nonjudgmental, and professional. Definitely one of the most easy-breezy annuals I've had!
She was awesome! By far the best GYNO I've been to in NY. She's my new go-to, so glad I've found her.
She was such a breath of fresh air. I loved my experience. I have had some really tough experiences trying to find a GYN in NYC and she was perfect. Super friendly and personable. Finally I feel like I am in good hands.
Excellent Doctor! Was seen right away by her nurse, then about 20 minutes later she came in. Did not rush, discussed at length with me items needed to discuss, and was very warm and friendly. Explained everything to me very clearly. Office is nothing fancy but she is GREAT!
I booked a 9 am appointment, arrived 10-15 mins early as recommended for new patients, and then had to wait outside in the rain for a while (with three other patients--two 9 am appointments for Dr. Boter and two for Dr. Brandeis) because the receptionist was late. Around 9:15 Dr. Brandeis arrived and let us in, and the nurse/assistant and Dr. Boter arrived a few minutes later. I was seen by the doctor around 9:25. The receptionist was there to take my copay once the appointment was concluded at 9:50. When she arrived, Dr. Boter was very apologetic that we had to wait outside for 15 minutes, and was very efficient about timely completing the appointment (though I did not feel overly rushed). She did a thorough history, listened carefully, and gave clear explanations. I would recommend her to other women with PCOS in particular. My only caveat is that I might suggest avoiding booking the first appointment time of the day.
Absolutely LOVED her! She was great and so helpful. She made me feel beyond comfortable and I have found my new doctor!
Excellent bedside manner. Did not rush me at all. Made me feel very comfortable. Wait in the office was about 30 minutes, but other than that no complaints.
Very good. Only improvement is that her staff always ask to fill out a bunch of forms when you arrive but the doctor is very on time for on OBG and extremely kind, patient and thoughtful.
Dr. Boter is fantastic - I honestly don't have one negative thing to say about her. She is has a kind, caring demeanor and always seems to add a personal touch (even though I only see her once a year!) She always answers my concerns and is thorough in her questions and examination. My appointments have always been prompt!
Best doctor ever- I have recommended her to all of my girlfriends
Very friendly and very easy to talk to
Dr. Boter has a great beside manner and made me feel 100% comfortable. My only complaint is that it can be difficult to get an appointment on short notice when things come up (ie. you forgot you're out of refills on a prescription.) But that's to be expected when you're seeing a great doctor. So far her front desk staff has been nothing but helpful. They took down my insurance information, haven't charged any unexpected fees, and they were helpful in getting my prescription extended when I couldn't get in to see Dr. Boter in time for my next refill.
So glad I found a new doctor that I really like.
Dr. Boter was amazing! She was truly a pleasure to speak with, and gave me what was probably the fastest and gentlest annual exam I've ever had. I really felt like she was able to spend the time to get to know me and address my specific concerns. The wait was a little long, but if she's giving such a personal experience to each patient, it makes total sense and is worth it.
Amazing doctor. Has genuine interest in the well being of her patients. Made me feel totally comfortable and was completely professional/nonjudgemental.
I've been seeing Dr. Boter for a little over two years now however I will no longer go see her. Originially I liked her because she is always friendly during appointments and makes me feel comfortable. Last time I was in the office after a biopsy she told me to call when I decided what birth control I wanted. I called several days later to tell her what I decided. She called back that night and left me a voicemail then never called me back again. I ended up having to get it from my primary. Even worse, I called back several days later to tell her I had gotten an infection after the biopsy and she STILL did not call me back. After several days I ended up in urgent care for treatment. The receptionist at the front desk could care less telling me that she would leave my number but had no idea when the Doctor would be calling back. This was two weeks ago and thankfully all my issues were resolved- thanks to other Doctors.
Lana was awesome! She made me feel so comfortable and explained everything she was doing before and while she was doing it. It felt like I was chatting with a girlfriend rather than going through what can be a pretty intimidating experience.
Best doctor I have has this far. Warm disposition and really cares about your health and supporting the decisions you make.
She's great, funny, and relatable! You can tell she really likes what she does and knows her stuff. Best doctor I've come across thus far!
Dr. Boter's bed side manner is great. She puts you at ease is very easy to talk to and never makes you feel judged. She answered all of my questions and I never felt rushed.
My experience with Dr. Boter was definitely one that merits recommendation! I arrived at my appointment right one time, and besides the initial paperwork I hardly waited over 5 minutes before being seen. The nurses were friendly and helpful, as was Dr. Boter. She did a good job of explaining things and answering questions and made it very easy to talk to her. I felt very comfortable. I'm glad I saw Dr. Boter and will surely return to her office for future appointments.
Only complaint would be the forms. Would love to have the forms online to fill out before appointment. The ones I were given looked like they had be copied about 1000 times. Plus, it's not clear which fields to fill out. However, the Dr and the experience made it totally worth it.
She was great! Office staff is nice but the office is dingy and old. That's the only drawback. I would definitely recommend Dr. Boter to a friend.
Dr. Boter makes you feel extremely at ease. She explains everything & answers all of your questions without making any judgments. I would definitely recommend her!
Incredibly friendly and knowledgeable.
Loved Dr. Boter, she was really easy to talk to and very professional
As always Dr. Boter is gracious and makes you feel at ease. She is also straightforward in recommending what suits you as a patient and a person. So glad to have her as my doc!
Very professional, attentive, and fast! I will definitely be going to her again.
She was SO amazing. She had such amazing bedside manner and was so attentive with making sure she was prescribing the right medication for me.
Dr. Boter is an amazing doctor!! She always makes you feel comfortable and answers all questions with respect and honesty. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a new gynecologist. But be warned-the front desk is a little snippy and it's hard to get an appointment sometime, but she is sooo worth the wait!!
I had a 9 AM appt and had to wait until 9:07 for them to open the office, however Dr. Boter made up for my wait with speedy service once I got inside. She is very approachable and nice.
I'm so happy I found Dr. Boter! I waited maybe 10 minutes and then she was one of the loveliest people. Really interested in her patients and puts them at ease. Highly recommended.
Very professional, direct and kind.
Dr. Boter is the best! Very professional, but funny and easy to talk to at the same time. She has incredible bed-side manners and made me feel completely comfortable. I higly recommend her!
I am a very selective person when it comes to medical care and I must say I was extremely impressed with Dr. Boter's medical attention. Dr. Boter was personable, knowledgeable and extremely thorough. After sending me to NYU for some follow up work, Dr. Boter personally called me to report the findings and asked me if I had any specific questions. I would highly recommend her!
My favorite doctor of all time!
Dr. Boter was extremely nice and nonjudgmental. She listens to her patients and has their best interest at heart. The office, however, is a different story. The waiting room is old and dingy. There are stacks of magazines everywhere and it looks like they have never thrown away one magazine since they've been in business. The patient rooms were better, but left little to be desired. It was also very cold, which once I brought this up to Dr. Boter, she immediately turned the heat on. She definitely cares about her patient's comfort and well being. All in all, Dr Boter herself is awesome, but the office needs a major facelift.
She is amazing! Made me feel relaxed, explained everything to me, spend time with me until I was fully comfortable with leaving. I have had my fair share of awful ob/gyn and I have finally found a doctor I'm really happy with and can trust. She truly listened to me instead of just prescribing medications and sending me away. Really glad I saw her
I am so happy to give a glowing review of Dr. Boter! :-) She is patient, attentive, and very sympathetic. I came to her for a consult on a pre-surgical endometriosis diagnosis, and she went through my symptoms and treatment options very thoroughly. Dr. Boter is very easy to talk to, and she genuinely seems to care for her patients, which is not easy to find. I didn't go for an exam, but after this first experience, I will definitely be back.
Dr. Boter is very pleasant and seems very intelligent. Glad to have found her and will return to her and would highly recommend her.
Dr Boter is wonderful- she's gentle, patient, reassuring and thorough.
Even though the office isn't the greatest and there's usually a bit of a wait, I will continue going to Dr. Boter because of her warm bedside manner and genuine concern for my health. None of that rushing stuff!
Wish I found her sooner. She's great. If it wasn't for the fact she was looking in my vagina it would have felt like chat with a good friend. Highly recommend!
Very nice and professional and made me feel very comfortable. Highly recommended
Dr. Boter is wonderful. Easy going and conversational. Non-judgmental; she's fast but thorough. Answers all questions but gets you in and out. Despite an average wait-time of 15 minutes at both visits, I was out off the office within 45 minutes of my scheduled appointment time. The administrative staff is less reliable. To schedule a follow-up appointment I called 4 times to no answer, left 2 voicemails with no return call and ultimately booked the appt via ZocDoc because the follow-up was timely. I've also overheard the receptionist and nurse bicker briefly. The office equipment is not the most high-tech. When living out of state I was a client of a Women's Health Care Center, with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, so I may be a bit biased. Regardless of lower-tech equipment, medical record databases and the attitude of admin staff, I will keep seeing Dr. Boter.
Very nice comfortable and not a long wait time.
I am very impressed by Dr. Boter - I only waited about 15 minutes, which is a rare feat in Manhattan. I had not seen her in over a year yet she remembered many random details about me, which makes all of the difference for these uncomfortable doctor visits. Highly recommend!
Dr. Boter's warmth and instant rapport is incredible. She is thoughtful, genuine, and full of advice and experience. However, as warm as her personality is, the treatment rooms could be a little bit warmer!
I love, love, love Dr. Boter! When I tell you I read things online and was terrified to have my first pap smear appointment, it was ridiculous! However, Dr. Boter in her professionalism, ease to talk to, and genuine care for her patients made the awkward experience bearable! She's great!
She is really nice, But it is really hard to contact her to know the result of the tests.
Great gynecologist! Excellent bedside manner and you can tell she truly wants to make sure you're doing well.
Dr. Boter was great - Asked questions about how I was doing & feeling, and if I ever hesitated with my answer she paused to ask if there was something else I felt like I needed to talk about. Highly recommended!
She was the nicest, most authentic doctor I've ever been to!
Today I had my first visit to a GYN, ever. Dr. Boter was amazing! She made me feel comfortable right away and answered all of my questions. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a GYN with an excellent personality and wealth of knowledge.
She's extremely efficient, and absolutely thorough with her prognosis. Dr. Boter is extremely polite and demonstrates genuine concern. She is amazing!
Love love love Dr. Botor. She is super friendly and easy to speak with in regard to medications and potential questions. The office itself could be better maintained but her service is worth overlooking the tired surroundings.
I found Dr. Boter on ZocDoc a couple of years ago and would never go to anyone else! She's the sweetest woman and make this Doctors visit not as dreaded as is typically is :)
Maybe the best doctor experience I've ever had. Considering how uncomfortable going to the GYN can be, this was amazing! Dr. Boter is so kind and gentle. I never felt rushed and she answered any question I had.
Dr. Boter is amazing. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable. She is caring and shows concerns about any issues that have arisen. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new doctor.
I've done so much research for finding the right gynecologist and Dr. Boter was by far the best doctor. I am so happy to have found her.
Dr Boter was super friendly, and patiently answered all of my questions! My annual gyno exam went very smoothly =) Would highly recommend her
Dr. Boter was amazing! I was trying her out based on reviews from Zocdoc and LOVED her! She makes what can be a rather uncomfortable experience completely comfortable and normal. I really liked how easy she was to talk to and the fact that she listened to what I said and what my concerns were and addressed them - the norm for me is doctors brushing me off as a hypochondriac. That being said, she was able to address my concerns and actually confirm them. The doctor I'd been seeing for 3 years prior, albeit nice, never did that. All of here explanations are given in a calm, relaxed way so you never feel like you're being rushed out for the next patient!
Dr. Boter wasn't the fastest doctor which I really appreciated! She was very sweet and thorough and took her time to get to know you and any concerns you might have. The office is a little cramped, what you might expect from a NYC doctors office. The bathroom left a little to be desired. But I found the office lady to be very sweet and friendly. The assistant who took my blood was good and efficient!
She is wonderful!
Very attentive, kind person. Best experience with OBYN ever
My overall experience was excellent. I was seen within 5 minutes. The Dr. was very caring and personable.
As always, Dr. Boter was incredibly thorough, insightful and caring. Definitely my favorite doctor!
Very friendly and professional. My only issue was the wait but I still definitely recommend.
excellent Doctor and staff. I highly recommend.
She was fantastic as always - I am so happy I found her. Always super nice, puts me at ease. Personable, easy, efficient without rushing. Will continue to highly recommend her.
Clear, professional and caring
Great and very friendly doctor.
She is super sweet and gentle, not condescending and very easy to talk to. I am so happy I found her.
She was really easy to talk to and made everything easy to understand. It was easy to make arrangements for annual mammogram and other tests at participating hospital and paperwork was a breeze. She was also patient enduring my questions and unnecessary mini freakout.
When I saw her she was wonderful but I had to wait over an hour and no-one told me how long it would be. They just left me sitting in her office and I didn't get told I would have to wait or how long I would have to wait, it was extremely aggravating.
Dr. Boter has an excellent bedside manner and takes the time to talk with me about my concerns. She's just all around great which is why I keep coming back to her. I've always had good experiences with her office staff and never had to wait too long before my appointment. I can't recommend this doctor highly enough!
Overall, very good experience.
She makes you feel very comfortable and she's very professional. She will answer all your questions!
There is a long wait time but she is worth it. She is very comforting and easy to talk to.
On my first visit she was very friendly and caring. She made one of the most uncomfortable moments of the year bearable. I had some trouble filling out the insurance paperwork and the office assistant also had some trouble explaining it. But she was also doing 10 things at once. Very small staff.
I enjoy my visits to Dr. Boter. She is always attentive, courteous, and engaging.
She's chatty and sweet and knowledgeable. I feel at ease and I barely even notice the discomfort of the exam.
Dr. Boter was very kind and informative. She was conversational and made the visit go by smoothly, quickly, and comfortably.
I sat down with Dr.Boter for my first appt, and after having several less than pleasant experiences with another doctor, left breathing a lot easier than I have in months. She was thorough with her questions, thoughtful and knowledgeable with her feedback, and put me at ease without feeling rushed. Her reviews note longer wait times, but you know what? Good- know that she's giving someone else the time they well deserve- this is one dr's appt that shouldn't be over in a NY minute and I think we can all appreciate that. I'll continue going to her, and I'll recommend her to my friends.
Dr. Boter was very personable. She answered all my questions and concerns and made me feel very comfortable during my exam.
Dr Boter is the best! Makes You feel comfortable!! I will only go to her! Highly recommended!!!!!
The experience wasn't my favorite for sure. The front desk girl was impatient and annoyed whenever I checked with on time - I waited for over an hour to be seen. Dr. Boter was personable and professional. And the medical assistant, Melissa was very nice as well.
Great doctor, really made me feel comfortable. Wait time was absurd, though, and it bugged me that no one apologized or explained why I waited for nearly an entire hour to be seen. This is New York City, and it's unfair to keep people waiting like that on a work day. Other than that, no complaints. Will likely go back again.
She was wonderful!
Very nice doctor, makes you feel super comfortable. Would definitely see her again.
Dr. Boter is delightful, knowledgeable , and informative.
Dr. Boter is very friendly and attentive and I felt at ease with her right away. She took time to answer all of my questions and seemed to genuinely care about me as her patient. There was no sense of being rushed or hurried and she took a pretty thorough medical history in person. I will definitely continue to see this doctor.
Lana is really kind and personable. The wait time was a bit long, but worth it.
Very lovely person
i have been going to Dr. Boter for 4 years and she is the best OB I have ever had. She makes you feel 100% comfortable - you are able to tell her everything. Great about calling back and following-up.
Dr. Boter, made me feel at ease. She answered all of my questions in a very professional manner. The exam was done quickly and pain free.
Dr. Boter is wonderful. Kind and caring, concerned about my health and also quick and efficient. And though the actual exam never takes longer than necessary, I never feel like I am being rushed through my appointment with her.
She is always very friendly and makes me feel comfortable.
Dr Boter is great, very friendly and easy to talk to. I was 20 minutes late for my appointment and they still saw me with no problems. The building the office is in looks quite shabby, and the office itself is not beautiful - but I'm looking for a great doctor not a pretty office.
she explains everything to you
She is amazing!
It's very hard to find a doctor that respects your time. I went in for an appointment today and was in and out, got seen immediately and wasn't rushed at all. I hope all of my visits are just as a efficient.
I've recommended every single one of my girlfriends to Dr. Boter and highly suggest her! She's personable, straight up, to the point, clear and has a good bed-side manner. All of my friends enjoy her as well.
She is very good at making you feel comfortable, making the visit and the exam very pleasant.
She made the appointment very comfortable. She was warm and answered all of my questions.
She was very understanding and knowledgeable. I never felt rushed and she answered all my questions thoroughly. I'd highly recommend her.
She was great! Made the all experience much better than what I expected.
The office space and patient rooms are in need of some attention in terms of cosmetics and cleanliness.
Excellent Doctor who takes the time and genuinely cares.
You will not be disappointed!
i love going to Dr. Boter. She makes the visit so carefree and comfortable.
Dr. Boter is a great doctor--she makes she you understand everything you need to know, and is completely honest with you at all points. She's very real and really cares about her patients.
I love her - she makes this kind of appointment so stress free - she's friendly yet professional - ready to answer questions and informs you of what she's doing and why. Highly recommend her to anyone who is nervous about going to the doctor or hasn't been in a while and needs someone to help them ease back into the yearly routine!!!
Dr. Boter is absolutely amazing. She is personable, knowledgeable and efficient. I look forward to my appointments with her!
She answered all of my questions thoroughly. I never felt rushed or judged. The PA and front desk receptionist were also very polite and professional.
Very quick yet thorough, keeps you distracted throughout the process by asking questions about your life. Knowledgable, matter of fact, and efficient.
She is amazing! Takes the time to explain everything and really cares about her patients. Really great doctor!
I was recommended her by a friend who found her on ZocDoc and I love her. She always seems to remember me; and she talks to you through the whole examine so you always know what's going on. She very good at listening to your concerns, answering your questions, and talking through your different options until you make a decision you are comfortable with.
What a wonderful doctor-- warm, approachable, easygoing and professional. Will go again and recommend to others.
This is my first time with doctor Lana Boter and my experience was great! She was very professional, warm and friendly. I felt totally relaxed. She made everything easy and I would definitely come back!
Dr. Boter is great. I felt very comfortable with her.
Great doctor! She spent a while with me going over history. She is very nice and I already recommended her to my other girl friends.
She was absolutely lovely. Very kind and comforting. Would highly recommend.
very nervous at first but she made me feel at ease. She's very warm & friendly. The staffs are polite and professionals.
Fantastic! She has a very warm personality but is incredibly straightforward. I finally found a doctor who cares.
What a wonderful woman! I am so happy I saw Dr Boter. She is so wonderful, kind and comforting. I already started telling people about her - and I saw her like 5 hrs ago
She made me super comfortable and took her time in taking my medical history and talking through any concerns I had. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new OBGYN in NYC. The only complaint I had was the wait time was long (1 hour), but I'm hoping that it was just a busy day
Very kind, open to answering questions!
She is a fantastic doctor! I am so happy I found her on ZocDoc!
She's very friendly, open and easy to talk to. It's worth a short wait to see her.
I loved her, but didn't love the offices.
She was very nice and welcoming. The staff was very nice, too. My only complaint is about the forms I had to fill out. They were hard to read, and used terminology for the insurance that I'd never heard before. I've never felt so uncertain turning in my insurance info. I had to leave several parts blank, but the staff was very nice about it.
Very personable and made me feel comfortable. The wait time between having me undress to checking my vitals was a little longer than expected. Online forms would be great.
For an OBGYN they leave you waiting in the room (that is too cold!) for too long. The Dr is GOOD but the nurses and attendants are cold and brisk. The physical building and consult rooms are quite old and rusty.
Dr Boter is AMAZING!!
She's amazing. Highly recommend.
Dr. Boter put me at ease right away. I will definitely be back.
She is knowledgeable, welcoming, thorough, and friendly.
Outstanding, she made me feel like I had been seeing her for years.
Very personable and attentive.
This was my first visit with Dr. Boter and I felt so comfortable with her. I will definitely go back for routine check up's in the future. Would absolutely recommend.
It was worth the wait! As soon as she got into the room Dr. Boter apologized sincerely about the wait and we got started right away. She was very relatable and down to earth, also honest about which forms of medication she thinks are worth it or not. She was very personable and by far the best OBG I have seen in 7 years.
She's great and i have recommended her services to my friends.
Lana was super professional and knowledgeable in her field, completely competent. Definietly explained everything clearly and answered all questions openly, honestly and informatively. I appreciated the straightforward attitude of her practice. Totally going back.
My visit to Dr.Boter's office was great. I was a new patient and luckily the new patient forms were minimal. After completing the forms I only waited 3 or 4 minutes before being called into the exam room. The nurse was very friendly and put me at ease. Dr. Boter came in within a couple of minutes. She went through my medical history and asked questions and seemed genuinely interested. When the physical exam started she struck up a conversation about where I worked, which put me at ease while she did everything she needed to do. It was over before I knew it. She did not push me on any procedures or medications, and was totally non-judgmental. In total I was there about 45 minutes.
There was a longer wait than I'm used to with Dr. Boter, but someone checked on me twice to let me know what was happening. Dr. Boter was clear and helpful with all my questions.
Dr. Boter was professional, caring and actually listened to what I had to say. Her assistant and front desk personal were friendly and helpful!
I've gone through a few gynecologists before Dr. Boter and she is the best doctor I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. She is incredibly comforting, knowledgeable, and helpful doctor.
Dr. Boter is amazing.
I was nervous coming into a new office due to insurance issues but dr. Boter was more than helpful.
great doctor - really makes you feel at home and as if you are speaking with family. front desk was not friendly, but that doesn't matter as long as the doctor is good :)
Dr. Boter was really great! She was nice & informative and really makes you feel comfortable in her office!
I waited a little bit in the exam room, but Dr. Boter immediately apologized for the delay (which goes a long way). This was my first time seeing this doctor, after going through several OBGYNs who did not take me seriously when describing the issues I have had. Dr. Boter was amazing - she is the first doctor to listen to me, and offer some real options! She was easy to talk to, honest with me, and very compassionate. Best OBGYN I have ever been to.
First visit, and the doctor spent quite a bit of time talking to me about my medical history and the reason I was in the office. Office staff were friendly and helpful, as well.
Lana Boter was the best doctor I have ever met with. Not only was she legitimately curious about my medical history, she was also completely thorough in her checkup as well as follow up. I was extremely nervous for a minor test I had never had before and she was just so reassuring and NICE. On top of this, she has gone out of her way multiple times to personally call me and discuss questions or concerns I may have. I have never experienced anything like it. Amazing person and doctor.
Dr. Boter was very helpful and thorough - took the time to explain things to me. Was very warm and friendly. Her office space could use some upgrades though.
Dr. Boter has such a great bedside manner and always makes me feel taken care of and comfortable. Highly recommend her.
She's excellent! She's so smart & personable. Best gyn I've ever had.
Dr. Boter was, quite honestly, the best doctor I've seen in a LONG time. She was incredibly easy to talk to and she astutely listened to all of my my concerns. Also, the receptionists were very kind, quick, and professional. I would DEFINITELY recommend Dr. Boter any day!
Dr. Boter made me very comfortable throughout the whole exam. This is coming from someone who recently moved to the area and had to leave my OB-GYN of over a decade back in my old state! It's tough finding an OB-GYN that makes you feel at ease and takes time to really listen. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Boter made me feel comfortable and listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. It was refreshing to feel heard and at ease for my annual exam. I highly recommend her!
One of the best doctors I've seen. Great bedside manner and answers any and all questions.
Dr. Boter was attentive, helpful, smart and made me feel very at ease. Will keep seeing her for my annual exam.
Friendly, thorough gyno!
LOVED her. I'm new to the city so I was nervous, but Dr. Boter was so professional and caring.She did not rush the appointment like so many nyc doctors. Incredibly personable and very knowledgeable. Would recommend her to everyone!
LOVE Dr. Boter. She is very friendly and extremely efficient. The office itself is on the tired side and could use some general cleaning and repair but it doesn't deter me from seeing her.
Dr. Boter was gentle, sweet and a great listener! I would definitely recommend her without reservation. Thanks for addressing my concern! Dr. Boter Rocks!!!
Great doctor. Very helpful, friendly and most importantly non-judgemental. So glad I chose her as my doc!
Lana makes me feel comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation. She is extremely easy to talk to, which is important. She seems legitimately concerned about her patients.
Love her! Super knowledgeable! Was able to prescribe me the right birth control for my low weight, apparently unlike others before. Totally coming back for my anual. :)
Lana is amazing. I've sent all my friends to her!!!
Dr. Boter is the best! It's been over a year since I've seen her and she remembers everything about me - what I do for a living, my interests, I've grown out my hair. She's absolutely fabulous and I'd recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Boter is fantastic. She is warm, knowledgeable, and friendly without being overbearing or coming off as judgmental. She really tries to make you seem at ease during your appointment. I can't think of anything else I would ask for in an OBGYN!
She is the best gynecologist i've ever had. She is knowledgable and really listens to what you have to say.
Best experience I have had with an OB-GYN! Would recommend her to all my friends!
Lana is always very thoughtful and caring. She truly gives her all and cares personally about her patients.
She was great, would definitely recommend to friends!
I think Dr Boter is Fantastic! she has a warm and friendly demeanor that totally put me at ease during my appointment! i will definately recomend her to all of my girlfriends.
Very professional...took her time to address all my needs.
I love Dr. Botor! She's thoughtful and she listens, and she's very straightforward about what you need to know.
She was wonderful, the actually waiting room and bathroom was not clean.the examination room was very clean. also her nurse walked in on me when I was taking I was changing which was uncomfortable. however like is said Dr. boxer was great.
She was great, the receptionist was not as pleasant.
I came to Dr. Boter with an unusual problem after having gotten no help from my usual gyno. Dr. Boter asked many questions to get at the root of my pain. While she couldn't exactly say what was wrong, she gave suggestions to help, she tested what she could, and she is sending me to another facility for testing just to be sure it isn't anything she couldn't see/feel. In addition to my main problem, she provided me with an alternative birth control pill that will help birth control issues I had been dealing with for 2 years.
I had another great experience with Dr. Boter and her office. The staff was extremely attentative, kind and helpful right as i walked in. Dr. Boter was also amazing. She always takes the time to see how you are doing and makes sure to do a thorough exam. Every time I've been to her office she had made me feel super comfortable and cared for. I refer all my friends and colleagues to her because it is very important to have a good doctor-patient relationship, especially with such a personal exam. I am so thankful to have found such a caring Doctor in NYC.
Would never go back to this office again from the doctor's attitude to the way the staff handled the billing.
Dr. Boter is fantastic!
Very friendly, makes you feel very comfortable. Have recommended Dr. Boter to friends.
I had no wait the first time I visited Dr Boter. Was a little disappointed I had to wait 75 minutes, but she's so nice I got over it fast.
She doesn't accept my new insurance and it's been difficult to replace her!
It was my first time ever to an OB GYN. Dr. Boter was incredibly efficient, friendly, and understanding. I'll most definitely be going back to her yearly.
I thought that she was very down to earth. She listened to me and made me feel comfortable. I thought she was one of the best OB/GYN's I have been too!
As a woman who is going for a doctorate in human sexuality, I can say that sexual health is very important to me. Dr.Boter's bedside manner was wonderful, she is open to answering any and all questions, she is understanding and works with you as a patient to meet your needs in the most professional way possible. If I had a daughter I would bring her to Dr.Boter. She's fabulous!
Dr. Boter and her assistant Melissa were absolutely amazing and the best that I've come across. I was seen right away and everything from getting my information to the exam was incredibly quick. So happy I found her!!
Very gentle and patient. I would recommend her to all my friends
I do not recommend this doctor, book at your own risk.
This was my first trip to Dr. Boter and to any OB-GYN. Dr. Boter made me feel very comfortable and was willing to take the time to answer all of my questions. I definitely plan to go back to her for my future OB-GYN appointments.
This was my second visit to Dr. Boter and she was just as great as I remember! Genuinely nice, the appointment was quick and easy without feeling rushed. Will continue to see her!
I've been seeing Dr. Boter for about five years. She is very knowledgable and has a wonderful bedside manner. She never makes you feel rushed or silly for any questions asked. Best GYN I've ever seen.
Really enjoyed my visit - and I'm very picky about doctors, especially ob/gyns! Dr. Boter was professional but at the same time very friendly & trusting. Great bedside manner. Have already recommended her to a few friends in NYC.
Dr. Boter was quick, friendly and professional.
Lana is a wonderuflly considerate and compassionate individual. I recommend her to all of my friends.
She was great- very personable and understanding.
Really outstanding. Was my first time visiting a gynecologist and she was completely professional and made sure I felt totally comfortable.
Very pleasant and relaxed appointment.
One of the best doctors I've ever seen. She's the best.
I have been seeing Doctor Boter for over two years now. She's great. Very thorough, calm, and trustworthy. A lot of OB GYNs can be very abrasive and judgmental, but I feel very comfortable with Doctor Boter. Highly recommend!!!
Highly skilled and personable; compassionate and intelligent.
I thought she was very nice and friendly but fast and thorough! I like her a lot!!! I will definitely be returning!
I had to give up the GYN I had for years due to change in insurance. Since then I tried several and didn't like any. Finally, thanks to Zoc Doc I found the perfect one..Dr.Boter!
Treated me like an actual person, very warm and funny.
The best Gynecologist I've had in New York.
She's great. Always friendly, informative, matter of fact. I was in and out in less than 45 minutes. What more can you ask for?
Dr. Boter was very personable and made me feel extremely comfortable through my appointment. Since this was my first visit appointment here, she took the time to get to know me, discussed each step of the examination process and thoroughly answered all of my questions. Definitely the best doctor I have seen!
Dr. Botor is always very present and she listens to your questions and responds thoughtfully. And she's really pleasant too boot.
I thought she was great at making her patient feel immediately comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. She was very personable and informative. You feel like you can ask her anything.
Dr. Boter is very nice, and I was very impressed by how well she remembered everything from my previous annual check-up. I felt that she was very thorough and helped me address any issues (no matter how minor) I have with my prescriptions.
Second visit with Dr. Boter I was taken to a room in about five minutes. As my previous visit, she was very nice and professional. Answered questions I had and offered a extra advice. Unfortunately the main reason of my visit couldn't be addressed in full. Dr. Boter informed me she no longer performs Prenatal care. :( She was however very helpful and gave me several referrals! Thanks Doc!
Dr. Lana was wonderful. She's smart, funny and has an excellent bedside manner. I hate going to the Gyno but she made it easy and painless.
Dr. Boter was funny and easy to talk to.
She is smart, direct, and listens to what you have to say. I definitely recommend her as a doctor. My only complaints are that her front office staff is not particularly warm/personable and I had to wait over an hour to be seen (for an early morning appointment) with no explanation.
Very friendly and welcoming. She made sure I was comfortable and talked me through the whole appointment.
I almost hate giving her an awesome rating because I don't want her office to get too too busy, but she's great. I was in and out in about an hour and didn't feel rushed at all. She's quick, but very thorough. In fact she diagnosed something that I've probably had for years and many OBGYNs before her missed. She's very understanding about the real world, life issues that have an impact on a woman's health and is not judgmental at all. Her front office staff and nurse were nice and professional as well.
She is wonderful and puts a shy person such as myself at immediate ease.
I always enjoy visiting Dr. Boter. She has a great, warm personality and is easy to talk to.
I would highly recommend Dr. Boter. She is extremely professional but at the same time very kind and makes those less than desirable appointments not half bad!
Very nice staff and the doc was wonderful. Made me feel very comfortable right away and made the whole thing quick and painless.
Extremely informative and patient.
This was my second visit with Dr. Boter. She is clear, informative, and makes you feel at ease. Also the staff is very friendly!
Highly personable compassionate and professional. A very pleasant first visit.
She was very patient and nice. I would recommend her to friends.
I liked her very much - great bedside manner and took the time to really talk to me. I'll definitely see her again.
Dr. Boter is exceptional. She is friendly, warm, and really cares about her patients. She makes you feel comfortable from the moment she sees you and explains everything. I would definitely recommend her!
Very easy to talk to - made me feel very comfortable
So sweet. Apologized for running late. Took great care of me...already gave her card to two friends! =)
Super friendly and relatable! Throughout the visit, she explained what she was doing and why which was great.
Very friendly and talkative -- put me at ease right away. Fast but not rushed.
Dr. Boter never fails to make me feel calm and comfortable. She is the best!
I am so glad I found her on Zoc Doc. She is very personable and professional. I highly recommend her.
She was very nice and professional and made you feel very comfortable especially for my first time. All in all I highly recommend her and I'll keep her as my primary OBGYN.
The doctor made me feel at ease. I was very anxious due to recently diagnosed pcos, but Dr. Boter was both knowledgeable and amiable. I left the office feeling renewed and confident in my abilities to confront pcos! I especially enjoyed her down to earth personality and the quick service from the receptionists.
I have only had one visit with this doctor, and so far so good. She is easy to talk to and seems knowledgeable. Easy to talk to. No complaints with her. What I did not like was the manner of the receptionist - not warm at all, not friendly or welcoming, and she made it seem like I was a hassle to her. Did not like that.
Dr. Boter is absolutely lovely and manages to turn a not-so-fun, potentially awkward, but necessary exam a positive experience.
This is my 2nd annual visit with Dr. Boter - I absolutely LOVE her! She's extremely nice and thorough and makes you feel super comfortable.
Great doctor, will definitely go to her again.
Dr. Boter was very professional and did not rush me at all. She may just be my primary GYN doctor from now on.
Very kind, my first GYN appointment ever. Staff explained what to expect and Dr. Boter was kind and explained what she was doing while making conversationt o put me at ease
Thorough, efficient, thoughtful!
It was quick and the everyone was very friendly.
I was impressed with Dr. Boter. Her bedside manner was excellent. She immediately noticed that her office was too cold for my liking and adjusted the temperature to make me more comfortable. She was also very candid, answered all of my questions and provided a lot of information.
Dr. Boter is probably one of the warmest doctors I have encountered. She truly seems to care and the fact that the wait is never too long is a big plus!
She is the best gyno in town. Very sweet, sincere, and not rushed. I can't believe I put up with my previous one for so long!
Dr. Boter is very professional yet warm; the experience at her office always feels personal, but not overbearing. Scheduling appointments has been very simple and she accepts many insurance plans. Highly recommend.
Great doctor! So sweet and seems to love what she does which is always a great attribute
Dr. Boter was great! Her bedside manner was impeccable and she answered all of my questions. She took her time even though she was slightly behind on her schedule. I only had to wait about 5-10 minutes.
As all the reviews on here indicated, Dr. Boter is a wonderful physician. I'm always uncomfortable with new doctors, but she put me at ease immediately, asked good questions, and was very informative.
Dr. Boter was warm, informative and easy to talk to. The front office staff wasn't terribly friendly but with no wait time and a pleasant visit with Dr. Boter I have no real complaints.
Dr Boter is absolutely great! She was very personable and had wonderful bedside manner. She answered all my questions and did not make me feel as if she was rushing through the appointment.
I love Dr. Boter! She has an excellent bedside manner and made the appointment feel like a conversation more than a physical exam. I'm so glad I found her!
Not a long wait, staff was friendly. The appointment took about thirty minutes. Doctor was friendly and thorough.
I did not think that it is possible to find a doctor who listens and cares. Doctor Boter is exception in medical profession. Great doctor.
I would highly recommend Dr. Boter! I waited 5 minutes and and the staff was very friendly! Dr. Boter asked plenty of questions and I was very happy with my exam with her. I would def. go back to her and would highly recommend her to anyone!!
She made a painful procedure tolerable.
I adore Doctor Boter. I've been her patient for three or four years, and I actually look forward to my annual appointment. She's super knowledgeable, approachable, and attentive -- everything you want in a doctor.
Great as always. Barely any wait time, the staff is pleasant. I was seen quickly and Dr. Boter is very nice.
I thought she was great.
The front office staff was just plain unprofessional and rude. Given that my wait was nearly 1 hour and 20 minutes, all I got was a stare and a cold "The doctor is busy" instead of sincere apologies and sympathetic attitude. It was unacceptable to have to wait that long period. The doctor herself was very nice, apologetic and had great bedside manner.
She's great and makes you feel comfortable right away.
I didn't have to wait that long, she was so nice, professional and wanted to cover everything that may cause a threat to you. It's nice to see that she trully does care. I went to her because I read the previous reviews, and I think she indeed is great and will definetly return to her in the future.
I was pleasantly surprised at how short the wait was for my appointment. Dr. Boter made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. Very glad I found her on ZocDoc.
Dr. Boter is great!
I have been to a few doctors in the city now but Dr Boter was by far the kindest, most professional and caring I have seen so far. Would highly recommend her.
Dr. Boter was fantastic! She was extremely nice, and also managed during a 15 minute chat to figure out something about my health that my other doctors should have caught years ago.
She is direct, kind, nonjudgmental and there was no wait! I could not recommend her more.
The receptionist was a little gruff when I first arrived and I waited around 30 minutes from the time I arrived to the time I saw the doctor, but Dr. Boter was great. She has a great bedside manner, is patient and extremely efficient. I will be going back.
Can't say enough nice things about Dr. Boter. She's quick but thorough, great bedside manner, super sweet and kind and genuinely wants to get to know you. Once she was on vacation and I had to make a last minute appointment and saw the other doctor who works in the office and had a terrible experience. She was incredibly rude and short with me and didn't answer any of my questions. But Dr. Boter is AMAZING. Completely recommend her!
Very easy to talk to and explain things to.
So professional, warm and knowledgable. I recommend her to all my friends.
Best doctor I've had in a while. Unjudgmental, caring and efficient.
Great! Nice, quick and professional!
Under normal circumstances, Dr. Boter is great. However, if something abnormal comes up in your exam, she is not helpful nor is she nearly as compassionate as one would expect. I was referred to a specialist for additional testing, and her office didn't only offer absolutely no assistance in finding a specialist/recommending a doctor/offering support, they were downright difficult when I requested a transfer of my records. In total, a great everyday doctor, but just cross your fingers that nothing funky comes up under her care.
I have been looking for a gynocologist for a very long time. She made me feel really comfortable and gave me good information.
Excellent Expierence. Great office staff, very friendly, quick and efficient. I had a great experience with Dr. Boter. I have finally found a GYN I am sticking with.
Dr. Boter is professional, friendly and helpful.
Dr. Boter was friendly but professional, and she took the time to answer my questions and put me at ease. I've been looking for a new OBGYN for a while, and now I've found her!
I liked Dr. Boter, but the wait time was terrible. I arrived for my appointment 15 minutes early, and wasn't called until an hour after my appointment time. The office condition was not very nice either. If it weren't for the wait time and office condition I would recommend Dr. Boter.
I can't say enough nice things about Dr. Boter. After seeing other GYNs that made me feel rushed or not heard or tense, Dr. Boter made me feel like the complete opposite. She carefully took my medical history, asked questions, and was so happy to answer all of mine. She chatted with me about what I do for a living, about my neighborhood, and overall just made me feel so comfortable and like someone I would want to be friends with. It was the quickest (in the best sense of the word, I never felt rushed), easiest GYN exam of my life. I wish all of my doctors were like her!
Dr. Boter is very kind and professional. She makes you feel comfortable in a situation that is, by definition, uncomfortable.
Love her! Had to wait almost an hour before I was seen, but it was definitely worth it. She is extremely personable, and makes you feel immediately comfortable. So happy to have found her!
She was very pleasant and the appointment was very quick.
Thank You Dr. Boter! HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION POSSIBLE! THis was my first visit to Dr. Boter and I definitely plan on returning! Dr. Boter is Professional, Warm, Friendly, Gentle, Kind and Patient and extremely knowledgeable! She answered ALL of my questions! An Absolute Professional, She told me everything that she was doing. I felt comfortable, safe and at ease. Dr. Boter is the BEST! 100 STARS!
Fantastic doctor! Very through and great bedside mannor. She is definitely my new OB-GYN
Secretly, I always hate the annual ob/gyn check up. But Dr. Boter was wonderfully pleasant and efficient, and made the appointment comfortable. She answered my questions knowledgeably, and gave me referrals for other check-ups I may need. Wait time was very minor (maybe ten minutes), and she even apologized for it. This was a very good experience, and I'll definitely go back.
Dr. Boter was fine, although a little rushed. I don't know that I'll be going back though. The exam room and office was cramped (I honestly didn't feel like there was room for both of us) and could use some serious TLC. I haven't seen a metal speculum in oh...ever, and things seemed generally a bit outdated. The restroom was the size of a closet with a stained toilet seat that would seriously take $20 to replace and make a world of difference. There were no paper towels to dry one's hands and the whole effect was a little unsanitary, especially coupled with old school metal instruments. Also, once in the exam room there was nowhere to put your clothes once you undressed. Not even a chair. I ended up stashing them in my purse. Generally not the sort of experience I'm looking for at the doctor.
I really liked my experience with Dr. Boter. She was very welcoming and really took the time to sit down with me and get to know me and my health history. Not once did I feel rushed or like she was just going through the motions. To her, I was the only patient of the day. The nurse greeted me right away and was also very personable. I would easily recommend her. The office was very clean and quiet.
Dr. Boter was lovely! She apologized for the wait, which wouldn't have been so bad if i wasn't already in a paper gown (chilly!), and didn't rush through the appointment. She was very personable and made me feel extremely comfortable. It was such an improvement from the last OB-GYN I went to, that I can't say enough good things about Dr. Boter!
Seemed very personable, thorough and explanatory. Glad I went to see her.
Like visiting a friend. She's kind, warm, really informative, and takes time to answer all of your questions. You never feel rushed and I always walk out of there feeling like a valued patient.
Lana was amazing, but her receptionists left a lot to be desired!!
Dr. Boter is amazing, professional and patient. I am very lucky to find her as my OB GYN.
Dr. Boter is really really good. And I've been to a lot of gyns, because I've moved a lot in the last few years. She is a great listener, never judgmental or trying to force me to try new pills/methods etc. she took a complete family history and asked me lots of questions at the appt. And was very thorough. Never felt rushed or anxious at all, and I always have anxiety at the gyn for whatever reason. Her entire staff wad kind and understanding and so nice! yes, I did have to wait about 45 minutes after my appt because they were running behind- BUT it was well worth it because she was so genuinely caring, I felt like she heard my concerns and gave me great advice. It's hard to find a gyno you feel comfortable with in NYC, believe me.... But she is 10/10. very professional and great bedside manner. Highly recommend.
Dr. Boter was very friendly and professional. The office staff is pleasant, too. The offices are a little dumpy, but the professional character of the staff makes me think that's more a problem of the old building than cleanliness. I would definitely recommend Dr. Boter!
Off-beat sense of humor but a very nice lady who made me feel comfortable. Would be a better experience if her office was in a nicer, more welcoming building
Love Dr. Boter. She is a wonderful person, very caring and helpful.
She's very friendly, funny and professional. Really puts you at ease! Highly recommended!
This was my first time seeing Dr. Boter and was in to get an annual check-up. I had a few questions about birth control pills and other things, and not only did she answer my questions and quell my concerns, she brought up the answers before I even had a chance to ask - showing she really keeps up on what patients see in the news and has an opinion. I really appreciated it because my last GYN pretty much threw up her hands and didn't offer what I considered to be a balanced view when I told her my same concerns - that is why I stopped seeing her. In the few minutes I spent with Dr. Boter (which I felt was adequate and not rushed)she asked me questions about myself (not only my medical history) in an effort to get to know her patient. Dr. Boter is very approachable, knowledgeable and appears to be capable. I will definitely be seeing her as my GYN going forward.
I just moved to the city and finding a good gyn was really important to me. Dr. Boter was absolutely amazing. She took a lot of time to listen to my concerns, to explain what she was doing, and to give clear and comforting instructions. Even though she said that no news was good news for any tests, she still took the time to call and let me know that everything was fine. I have already recommended her to all my girl friends!
I felt special and valued. She's very natural and genuine and made me feel right at ease.
Dr. Boter is great! She is thorough and walked through my options clearly.
Dr. Boter was great during my appointment and I really liked her and planned on going back for my next visit. Unfortunately, a few months later, I received a call from her informing me that recent test results I revealed I may have cancer and needed a more invasive biopsy but, after 10 minutes of her going on about this, it turns out they had my records mixed up--even after insisted earlier in the phone call that I had no such test done and that I hadn't been to the office in months! I hope they were able to find out which other patient it was who actually needed the biopsy. I understand mistakes happen, but this is a pretty big one which caused a huge panic for me and who knows what issues for the poor woman they confused my records with.
She was very friendly and knowledgeable, and did a great job listening to my concerns and answering my questions.
It was the most pleasent OBGYN appointment! She was so friendly, kind, and gentle. She also speaks to you and makes you feel comfortable and you almost forget you are on an exam table. Her staff was also extremely helpful and nice. I will definitely continue to use her as my physician. I also had zero wait time! I would highly recommend Dr. Boter.
She had a very approachable bedside manner and was not judgmental about anything.
She was very helpful and well informed. I felt comfortable talking with her.
Very gentle and friendly. Made my first visit as comfortable as it could be.
The reason I went to this doctor was because of all the reviews on ZocDoc. The first couple of times she was great and tried to build a rapport but eventually she started being very crude and sarcastic. She seems knowledgeable but I prefer a doctor to be kind and understanding.
Lana Boter is great! I was so nervous about going to the gyno but she made me feel so at ease. The only negative thing I would have to say is that the office is usually packed so expect to wait a bit in the waiting room. I would say an average of 35 minutes. But that's usually an indicator that the doctor is really good and worth the wait.
I'm a returning patient to Dr. Boter and love her more with every visit. She is patient, kind, knowledgeable, and is always looking out for your best interests. Every doctor could take lessons in bedside manner from Dr. Boter. I actually look forward to seeing her! Thank you, Dr. Boter! You are a wonderful physician.
Dr.Boter was very informative and took the time to answer all of my questions. She also made me feel very comfortable, which says a lot considering it is an uncomfortable exam altogether. I refer all my friends and colleages to her too :)
