Very kind and showed me with respect. We talked about my issues and concerns. She took care of my concerns and reminding me of my next appointment for Medicare check past due.

*Dr. Portenier is a great replacement doctor for me after *Linda Lam retiring.

Both Veronica and Dr. Portenier are fantastic.

The wait to see health care provider is way too long! I needed to see her in March but couldn't get an appt until June!

I feel very blessed to have Dr Portnier as my Dr.

I have never had a bad experience with this provider, and I have taken many people to her for care. Communication on the new portal system is still really rough and hard to get to the provider on a timely manner. When I called, I asked if the physician was in and I was told it would be quicker response if I did it through the portal but, 4 days later them question was posted.

Experience with physician was very good and met all my expectations.

She seemed concerned about my medical condition but I couldn't get a follow up for another month. In the meantime I'm further to finding a solution to my problem

Referral was for bone scan, which I have now had. Also Digestive health clinic which I am currently trying to schedule.

Always pleasant & informative.

It was good. It was my yearly wellness exam. I felt all my concerns were addressed.

Apr 19, 2022
She was interested in me as a patient and my health care.

Apr 17, 2022
I felt extremely well taken care of. Everyone was lovely to me & very thorough from beginning to end of my Wellness Check! Thank you!!

*Doc Portenier could not address all my needs at wellness visit so she prioritized most pressing issues then allowed me to schedule another appointment - all issues were addressed. When I said Atorvastatin was causing a cough she kindly recommended a different statin in a very kind way. Regarding wellness visit w/*Doc Portenier. [date]

I couldn't be happier with the care my doctor gives my husband and I.

I always enjoy seeing *Dr. Portenier.

It really seemed like a lot of paper work that wasn't even looked at by the nurse or dr. Some of the questions on the paper work seemed out of place. It seems like more time is spent on the computer than with the patient.

I have always had an excellent experience with this provider/physician for the many years she has been my PCP.

Mar 22, 2022
Dr. Portenier has worked diligently with me to resolve all of my health care concerns in a kind, professional manner. I trust her implicitly to care for me!

Mar 22, 2022
I feel that I could have received more information about what foods to stay away from. I should have been asked if I exercise and told what not to do now that I am pregnant. I feel that there could have been a better conversation between me and the doctor.

Mar 22, 2022
I'm lucky to have Dr, Portenier for my doctor. She's caring and very knowledgable.

Mar 21, 2022
As always Dr. Portenier, was informative and thorough. I was treated with respect.

Mar 21, 2022
Excellent physician.

Mar 21, 2022
*Dr. Portenier is excellent but the length of time it takes to get an appointment with her is totally unacceptable and being scheduled with someone else in her office is not the answer. When I want to be seen, I want to be seen by her within a week or two of calling for an appointment.

Mar 18, 2022
My physician was very knowledgeable, personable and easy to talk with about my medical needs and overall care. My medical records seemed to me missing my last bone scan which was needed to determine my next appointment for the same. This was the same thing that happened with my last physician from St. Al's Meridian Health Plaza. Not sure why, the tests are performed at the same facilities as the physician so records should be easy to keep track of...

Mar 11, 2022
THIS PROVIDER is great. She is definitely an asset to St. Al's Elm Clinic.

Mar 9, 2022
Good - because of blood test I need to return for more blood work in 6 months to check my info on kidneys. I'm thankful she is concerned.

Mar 9, 2022
The office is very disorganized. When I phone many times the message does not get through to the right person & does not call back -

Mar 7, 2022
Excellent as always.

I am extremely pleased with my doctor

She recommended wearing compression socks - she showed on her phone the best value and where to get them.

It was very good.

Oct 15, 2021
Seemed to genuinely care about me, but either her or the nurse dropped the ball on my referral.

Sep 22, 2021
She is a very compassionate person.
