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.

He is such a good doctor. I have had lower back pain for the past week. I visited his office last night. He gave me three sprescriptions which I started last night with dinner. This morning I woke up with almost no pain. He definitely knows his stuff. Personality wise A+++

Very happy with Dr. Portu. He spends time listening and answering questions. He's not a pill pusher but instead will give you other methods of maintaining good health.

Dr. Portu works very hard especially during season to treat me when I am sick without me having to go to an urgent care or emergency room. He is very attentive to my concerns when I see him. He is very knowledgeable on new medications and treatments. He is conservative when it comes to a problem, he takes it one step at a time to find out what is going on. You could not find a more compassionate and caring doctor. He treats my whole family. He is a very rare gem in today's medical field!!

My whole short experience with Dr. Portu was awful. First they ask me to come 15 min later for what was going to be a 1 hr new patient appt booked 3 mo prior & still waited 30 min. (Booked for 1hr due to chronic illness) Downhill from there - he rushed through the mere 20 min he gave me; barely made eye contact; his cell phone rang (loud) 2x, he checked it & took a call;he wrote my Rx wrong & I got ill as he didn't respond to my many calls for 4 days. I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy!
