I was so grateful for the time that Dr Boender took to explain things and to share options to help me figure out what might be happening was amazing. She had genuine care in my well being, and that meant a lot to me.

I have loved every ounce of OBGYN care I have received in Pierre. For something that is normally not a fun experience, the doctors and nurses do an amazing job at making me feel valued, keeping me fully informed, and showing me they truly care about my health and well-being.

Everyone was very professional and lovely. I was glad to see that all protective gear was worn and that there were procedures in place to protect everyone.

Everyone was very kind and efficient. Dr. Boender is fantastic- she took time to see me last minute even during COVID and I had never gone to her before. She took her time to address my concerns, go over information regarding why I was there and was able to treat me as if I had been a patient of hers for a long time.

Dr. Boender is an awesome and extremely knowledgeable Gynecologist who cares about her patients. I was very pleased and impressed about my first encounter with her on my 1st visit. She's by far the best gynecologist I have ever had.

Dr. Boender ALWAYS listens and takes the time to answer any questions that I have ever asked her! She is a GREAT Dr. and I have recommended her to a lot of people that I know looking for a good Dr. She is thorough and makes sure that I'm comfortable at all times wheather it was when I was pregnant, after my pregnancy or just a Dr.'s visit of any women stuff! She has always remembered me and my history since I've been going to her and remembers what we talk about when I'm at my appointments and to me that is awesome and makes me feel like I'm a person and not just a number! I couldn't ask for a better provider then her! I feel that she understands me! Avera is very lucky to have her?? Thanks Dr. Boender.
