Ratings for Dr. Joel E. Portnoy
Dr. Portnoy literally changed my life!! I had been struggling to speak for 2 years due to misdiagnoses, prescribed medicines that simply didn’t work, and being treated as ‘just a number.’ From the moment I met Dr. Portnoy, he treated me with kindness and professionalism. He gave me a lot of time and explained what was going on and why I wasn’t healing. He assured me we would heal my voice and amazingly within three weeks I was able to start speaking again!! Medicine was not the answer nor was the advice to ‘not talk.’ Gabi, the spectacular in office voice therapist had me practice to use my voice correctly and with care. The acute pain I was in eased away and I resumed my busy life once again with their help. I am forever grateful to them both and cannot say enough good things about Dr. Portnoy and Gabi!
I am 68 years old and (needless to say) have visited many doctors over the years. This was the single best experience with a doctor I have ever had - Dr, Portnoy has a friendly disposition, and answered my questions in a way they could be understood. He wanted to get to the bottom of what brought me to him and was never in a hurry. During his thorough examination he found a growth on my vocal cord (that had nothing to do with the reason I came to him) which was addressed. He was never in a hurry to "move the line". He is young, energetic, knowledgeable, and actually seems to like what he does.
I visited Dr. Portnoy with a throat problem. This doctor put me @ ease before examining me. He explained every detail of the exam on he was doing on my throat, before he did it. He is knowledgeable, thorough, current in his method, and sensitive to patients' concern. I do not hesitate to tell friends & family about him. I'm so pleased with him.
I give my highest recommendation to Dr. Portnoy. I had a vocal polyp on my vocal cord that completely limited my voice. It was not only embarrassing to have no voice, but it started to affect my ability to talk at work. I traveled from Washington D.C. to have Dr. Portnoy perform surgery to remove the polyp since he was so highly recommended from my previous ENT. The surgery went smoothly and I could start talking after a month of voice rehabilitation. It’s been 6 months now, and my voice sounds amazing. He was not only professional throughout the entire process, but he was also comforting throughout the surgery and recovery. Dr. Portnoy is one of the best, and I highly recommend going to him.

Dr. Portnoy is incredibly knowledgeable and thorough. He is patient, warm, and puts you at ease immediately. He makes you feel that you are his only patient and never rushes. He answers all questions and holds your hand when you need it. Everyone in the office is sweet and friendly. I highly recommend him.
One of the better experiences I've had with a Doctor! Dr. Portnoy was patient, kind and extremely thorough. He explained every detail unlike many doctors. I left feeling assured that the issue I was dealing with for a long time might finally be on the road to recovery. I highly recommend Doctor Portnoy!
