Thomas Cicconetti – Jul 16, 2021
It took us 15 years to find Dr Portu! We would try different doctors and most would walk in to the appointment with a computer and hardly ever look up. When you go to Dr Portu, he gives you his full attention. So now our search is over and he is our doctor for the rest of our lives!

Suzan Bader Krisher – Jun 14, 2020
Professional, calming manner. A good listener, no rushing during visits. Confident in his ability to diagnose, treat and refer out, if needed. Front office staff are polite and pleasant. They try to accommodate appt requests. They return calls and we ve received follow up calls as needed. The gratis coffee/latte machine is great, lol. Seriously though, our family uses him as well as some friends. Always positive discussions about our complaints, ills and issues. Would recommend and have.

Hands down the best internal medicine / primary care doctor in Naples. Dr. Portu takes care of my entire family, from my 18 year old daughter to my 71 year old mother, and he is knowledgeable and equally understanding and caring of all our different medical needs. He is simply an excellent doctor.

Dr. Portu has always answered my questions and given me his undivided attention. I have never felt rushed, and I feel like he genuinely cares about my quality of life. He doesn't just throw a prescription at you. He tries to understand the problem and fix it. I have recommended Dr. Portu to my family and friends.

He is next to impossible to contact. It seems his phone system has not worked properly for almost a year. I am unable to even get a call from a patient representative. I cannot continue having to depend on Urgent Care or emergency rooms for services he should provide.
