Dr. Boyer also performs upper gastrointestinal endoscopies and colonoscopies.

Dr. Boyer was born in Milwaukee. When she was five, her family moved to the Minocqua area. She says she chose to establish her surgical practice in northern Wisconsin because of the quality of medical care in the community and her connections to and love for the Northwoods.

Dr. Boyer completed her medical training at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. She then completed her internship and residency at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
