Dr. Charles W. Portney's Ratings
I saw Dr. Portney at a very difficult time in my life and can't imagine a more caring and experienced therapist. He was kind, insightful, empathic, uncannily perceptive, serious yet funny at the same time. I don't know how he does it. I am truly grateful for his humble competence and how he helped and supported me when I needed it most. He is a rare find.
Dr. Portney is extremely knowledgeable, considerate, respectful and to the point. I know he is respected in the psychiatric community for his expertise in eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder, and for his continuing teaching of trainees at the UCLA Dept. of Psychiatry. I would not hesitate recommending him for psychiatric treatment in general and particularly in his areas of expertise.
Dr. Portney, while experienced and well-networked, is fundamentally abusive, apparently working through persona or family issues. His commanding style may work with eating disorders, but I'm afraid he will create more emotional turmoil than he resolves. There are better psychiatrists; avoid him.
