Dr Portenier has been my primary physician for 20+ years. She has always been top notch. Dr Portenier has saw me through all of the special things we ladies get to experience as we age. I consider her a dear friend. My family moved to Ada County years ago but I will never mind making a trip to the beautiful town of Caldwell to keep Dr Portenier as my doctor. She and her team are well worth the trip!

Dr. Portenier is an amazing physician that is well respected by her peers. She is a warm individual that will listen to your concerns without judgement. She makes you feel as if you are her only patient that day and she has unlimited time for you. After listening, she thoroughly explains her knowledge on the subject. If there are any options in the treatment plan, you can bet there is collaboration before coming to a decision. I love that she makes me feel empowered about my own health. You cannot go wrong with Dr. Portenier.

Excellent physician! Very professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. She is the epitome of the highly sought after coveted physician/patient relationship rarely found! Being new to the area she came highly recommended by a Boise physician friend and my husband and I couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend Dr. Portenier.
