Boender's nurse is beyond amazing! She is so knowledgeable at her job and so caring towards me. Her nurse is so organized too. I can always count on her to remind me when I have my next appointment. Boender herself is AMAZING. I would recommend her to anyone coming in for OB/GYN cares. Can not praise her enough.

They were awesome help with my toddler. I love that I moved to Pierre and found a good facility for me as a pregnant woman. Great help with my toddler during my check ups.

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.

Great experience!
July 16, 2020
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.
April 27, 2020
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.
