Dr. Portnoi is a very helpful doctor. Although it is challenging to get an appointment, it is definitely worth the wait as she helps you understand all your problems and concerns. She takes the time to thoroughly answer all your questions. I feel very comfortable around her as she is kind and sweet. Her secretary is a little difficult to deal with, however, it does not bother me, as she is not the one who is giving me medical advice.

She's a fabulous doctor, very knowledgable and helpful - not a fan of her secretary, but that doesnt really affect my health so i don't mind much.

Only actual complaint is the secretary. She is extremely rude, literally told me and my mother to shut our mouths...

What a pair of useless "women" (for the lack of better word that is not allowed to be used on this site)!!! Wow, I never got any help from them. I'm 30 yrs old and every time I ask to be sent to a specialist or feel like I need extra care the doctor says that I don't need it cause I'm too young. Didn't refer to a psychiatrist, didn't refer to allergy test, she thinks I have no allergies because I'm too young and that I can deal with my psychological issues which could be as bad as bipolar disorder (just for the record) on my own.

Worst doctor ever! Don't even waist you're time with her, don't eve get me started with the secretary.... The worst part is that the doctor sucks! She is not helpful at all, no advice, no patience, and if you have more than 1 question she will tell you to book another appointment. The amount of time you spend in that office is a waist of you're time because she will just tell you that everything is ok or prescribe pills. To all those people that are worried that is they leave they won't be able to find a doctor. Just go to any pharmacy or walk-in clinic and they can give you a list of different family doctors.

I have never met a nicer, kinder, more caring person than Dr. Portnoi. She is very knowledgeable in new developments in her field, in new procedures and medications. You can ask her any question about your problems, and she will explain everything very thoroughly, easily to understand for a non-medical person, and very patiently. She is always eager to refer you to any specialist who might help you. Dr. Portnoi's smile and encouraging words are an integral part of her practice; they look and sound very sincere as they come from her heart. Because she has so many patients and because she cannot refuse those who have an emergency, patients with appointments usually have to wait for quite some time to be seen by the doctor. The doctor's receptionist can sometimes be rude and bossy, but, I guess,that is a kind of protection for the doctor who finds it hard to say "no" to those who need her help. The receptionist makes sure nobody takes too much advantage of the doctor's kindness.

Avoid at all costs! Very rude secretary Rina who acts like she is a doctor and acts like she is doing you a huge favour by talking to you. My mother-in-law is a patient of Dr.Portnoy for many years now and she has always complained about her and her secretary but I always thought that she was just exaggerating. The only reason why she was still her patient is because she speak Russian and my mother-in-law only speaks Russian, and she leave is close by. Doctor is ignorant to what you say, she makes her own assumptions and doesn't let you speak. You feel stupid and embarrassed so you just want to leave the office and never come back. I met her recently when I accompanied my mother-in-law. I just could not believe that she was for real.The secretary should be banned from working or even interacting with people, and the doctor should work as a secretary as she knows just enough to work as a receptionist at a REAL doctor's office. I am now transferring my mother-in-law to my family doctor.
