About Me

Compassionate Expertise for Women’s Health

You’ll benefit from the compassionate care and expertise that Amanda Kappenman, MD, FACOG, offers women of all ages. As a board-certified obstetrics and gynecology physician at Avera Medical Group 69th & Cliff in Sioux Falls, SD, she provides:

  • Annual women’s health exams, including Pap tests
  • Gynecologic surgery, including minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures
  • Labor and delivery
  • Pregnancy planning and care

As an OB/GYN, Dr. Kappenman enjoys guiding women through the experience of pregnancy and birth. “I love being part of such a monumental moment,” she says. “But I also enjoy getting to know them and hearing their stories throughout their lives.”

Dr. Kappenman hopes her patients feel comfortable sharing their concerns, viewpoints and questions. “I want them to feel confident that together we can come up with a plan of care that addresses their needs in the best way for them.”

Active Lifestyle

In her free time, Dr. Kappenman enjoys spending time with her husband and children. “My family, including extended family, is very important to me and we spend a lot of time together,” she says. They like to visit parks and festivals, spend time at the lake, ride bikes, read and watch movies and sports.

The only negative about this visit was that I waited in the exam room for about 45 minutes before I was seen.

This has been the best experience for me next to any other clinic!

I am always treated as a person, and every question I have is always answered, not matter how "dumb" it may seem. With that said, they never have made me feel "dumb" for those questions either.

My time with Dr. Kappenman was very good -- she was thorough and spent time with me, talking to me, looking at me. This was my first visit to a new doctor (insurance change) in 9 years and the intake experience with the nurse was difficult while she charted at a laptop, not looking at me, trying to catch up on 30 years of health history in 5 minutes. Not the nurse's fault and she was very kind, but EHR's during the short 10 min window for my appointment makes for a bad experience on the patient side. A big loss of human connection.

I cannot day enough wonderful things about Dr Kappenman and her nurse. They have been with me through my struggles in the last year. They are always there when I need them for support. They are so caring and compassionate for what they do! They always put you and your concerns first. Absolute best team I could ask for as my OB!

Amanda and her team are absolutely wonderful! My situation is a little different than most cases and they have gone above and beyond to accommodate me.

Amanda and her nurse really seem to care when I walk into the office. They listen and understand my concerns not only due to my medical history but family medical history as well. I don't have to ask many questions because they both explain things in a way that I understand.

Dr. Kappenman and her nurse were good listeners, explained things well, and very concerned about how I was doing after the procedure. Their follow up calls were prompt and courtesy. They represent Avera very well.

First time at Avera and I was very happy with everything. I didn't have to wait very long to see my doctor. In fact, I believe I saw her before my time. Everything was on time and smooth. I very much appreciate that. Everyone was also so nice.
January 26, 2019
I absolutely love Dr. Kappenman and her team. I feel comfortable expressing everything going on to both Amanda and her nurse. I appreciate how quickly they communicate test results and decisions to me. I am extremely glad that I chose Dr. Kappenman as my OB. She's so personal and truly cares about my physical, mental, and emotional health. I never feel brushed aside.
