    - in North Branch, MN |

    Prior to becoming a patient of Dr. Portis, I was having surgeries every year for kidney stones (9 or 10 years). In the 5 or 6 years I've been with him, I've had 2. The one I initially went in for, and one additional while we were figuring out medications. He's proactive, thorough, and doesn't mess around. Appointments are easily obtained and wait times are short. If you need surgery, you're usually in pretty darn quick too. Can't say enough about how he's helped me.
