Since then, she has been in private practice as well as on the faculty at several hospitals. She is Board Certified in Ob/Gyn. She loves every aspect of women's health care, and enjoys being there for all her patients' gynecological needs. Her special interests are Abnormal Pap Smears, Colposcopy, and Polycystic Ovarian Disease. She is married and has an irresistible puppy named Gypsy

How was your experience with the doctor?Was referred to Dr. Boter through co-workers, as she is the go-to gyno for Media Sales girls. She is laid back and has a calming demeanor, which is perfect for my high anxiety personality. My only gripe is that the office staff is super unfriendly and the office is really basic. All in, she's a great doctor and if you can get past the staff and office (temporarily, as she is moving to a brand new space later this year) she is a great partner for women's health!

How was your experience with the doctor?I can't say enough good things about Dr. Boter. If you are looking for a great gynecologist, she is IT! I've had some bad experiences with gynecologists in the past so I felt very nervous going into my appointment. However, the second I walked into the office, it all faded away. The office staff was so wonderfully kind and welcoming and helped me check in in under 5 minutes. Almost immediately after, I was seen by Dr. Boter. She came in with a big smile and treated me with so much kindness and professionalism. She instantly felt like a trusted friend and talked me through all of the questions I had. The whole experience was not only painless, but truly enjoyable. I left feeling informed and really cared for; everything you'd want from a healthcare professional. Could not recommend her more and I look forward to seeing her for years to come.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Boter was amazing. I have struggled to find a gynecologist who made me feel comfortable, and Dr. Boter exceeded expectations. If you're concerned about bedside manner, this is the doctor to choose. She listened to my concerns and made sure she addressed all of my questions. She noticed symptoms and drew inferences that other doctors were too rushed or unobservant to notice. Overall I could not recommend her enough.

How was your experience with the doctor?I know bedside manner is always important, but especially for a gynecologist. Dr. Boter was cheerful, friendly, interested, and made me feel comfortable and my thoughts and questions heard. It is a very small office/practice (presumably just her), so it is no frills but that means that she has the time to actually BE a doctor.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Boter’s office was very convenient to get to, the office itself is new, modern, and European looking. The check in process was simple and quick, done electronically through an iPad. Loved that Dr. Boter took time to get to know me, ask questions, and go over some medical questions I had. I left my annual appointment satisfied, and with a new plan to try out to see how I would feel. Would recommend to all.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Boter is so sweet and professional — I have experienced a lot of horror stories in the medical field in NYC and on ZocDoc and I feel like she is one of the few doctors here and on the app who actually cares — and this is coming from someone who has such anxiety about going to the gyno.

How was your experience with the doctor?I am so glad I found Dr. Boter. I looked for a new OBGYN for a while. She is incredibly kind and caring, has a great sense of humor and knows her stuff. The times I’ve seen her I always feel she makes an effort to know my medical history. I just feel good leaving. Makes such a difference. The office is spotless and modern and welcoming. Staff super nice too.

How was your experience with the doctor?She was relatable, thorough, funny, and honest. Rather than relaying my personal medical history to a nurse, transcriber, PA, etc. Dr. Boter personally took notes of my entire medical history and took the time to talk with me about it and get to know me. I had one concern which she quickly explained and put me right at ease and said it was absolutely nothing to worry about. Her office is immaculate and very modern. I only waited about 5 minutes, didn't have to fill out all of those typical forms (just a few quick questions answered via an iPad), and I was taken right back. Highly recommend Dr. Boter!
