I had an ear problem and was looking for an ear specialist online. I checked on Yelp and saw that Dr. Portnoy has a couple of five stars reviews, I was very happy that I was able to make an appointment in the same day. Dr. Portnoy is very professional and also very compassionate which is very important to me. He took his time and answer every question that I had. His staff was nice as well. I was very happy with the treatment and would highly recommend him.

Dr. Portnoy is one of the finest doctors I have ever seen. He is not only very knowledgeable but a caring, patient doctor as well. I never felt rushed or unimportant...he takes the time to sit and listen to all of the issues and explains everything completely. The office staff is very courteous and helpful, one of the best doctor's offices I have experienced ever...would recommend to all!
