Welcome to Boise Valley Asthma and Allergy
The clinicians and staff at Boise Valley Asthma and Allergy Clinic (BVAAC) welcome you to our offices. We have been providing up to date, high quality care in a supportive, patient-centered environment for over thirty years. We treat both adults and children at our five locations in Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Nampa, and Caldwell. BVAAC has three expert, board-certified allergists: John D. Jeppson, M.D.; Michael V. Keiley, M.D.; and G. William Palmer, M.D. All three of our allergists completed their fellowship training at National Jewish Health, a world-renowned center for the treatment of asthma, allergic and immunologic illnesses. Rounding out our team of clinicians are our three excellent nurse practitioners: Heidi Peters, FNP; Jennifer Neumayer, NP; and Devon Moser, NP.
At BVAAC, we pride ourselves on our expert care of allergic, asthmatic, and immunologic conditions, including food allergies and hives. Our goal is to make our patients’ lives better.
We believe that every patient is important, therefore, a provider is always available to take phone calls and patients in distress can be seen right away. For asthma, we provide a
comprehensive plan to control symptoms, protect lung function, and prevent attacks. Allergy shots are uniquely developed for each patient for a long-term cure for pollen and/or animals
allergy. We test for food allergies and offer food challenges in the office to determine if the food allergy has been outgrown. Our experience in prescribing effective medications for mild to severe conditions and getting the prescriptions approved by insurance makes our patients’ lives better. Feel free to call our office with any questions you might have.

The Importance of Seeing a Board-certified Allergist
If you browse online, you might be confused about what an allergist really is. At Boise Valley Asthma & Allergy Clinic, all we practice is asthma and allergy, and our three physicians are all certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology (ABAI), which is no small task.
An allergist/immunologist is a physician specially trained to manage and treat allergies and asthma. An allergist certified by the ABAI graduates with an M.D., undergoes a full three-year residency in internal medicine or pediatrics, goes through an additional 2-3 year fellowship in adult and pediatric allergy and immunology, and then passes a comprehensive American Board of Allergy and Immunology examination.
Since learning is a life-long process, all of the allergists at BVAAC maintain board certification in allergy and immunology with a comprehensive ABAI-sponsored on-going program called Maintenance of Certification with recertification every 10 years. The rigorous program Maintenance of Certification consists of four parts: Professional standing, Self-Assessmnent, Cognitive expertise, and Practice Assessment/Quality Improvement. Therefore, you can rest assured that your allergist brings the very latest knowledge and skills to you as a patient.
Because of this extensive training and experience in allergic illnesses, asthma, and immunology, an allergist certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology is very well qualified to manage the entire spectrum of allergic, asthmatic, and immunologic conditions in all age groups. Studies show that those patients taken care of by an allergist/immunologist certified by the ABAI also have fewer emergency room visits and have better controlled allergies and/or asthma.
