I called Dr. Bortnick's answering service on Sunday morning due to excruciating pain due to a fissure, he returned my call in 3 minutes. 5 minutes after I explained to him what was happening, the pharmacy called me to tell me my procto cream was ready to pickup. On a SUNDAY! He made room to see me in the office the next day and told me to continue with the treatment he prescribed on Sunday.

Dr bortnick is my docor for 8 years . He has treated me through several illnesses He has called me in the evening to explain my labs and tests I went for . He saw my husband each day in the hospital even on the weekends when he had his stroke. Dr Bortnick has old fashion doctor qualities that has been lost in our health care systems .

Where do I start? He is condescending, rude, abrupt. He acts as though anyone over 80 can't understand things. I would never, ever, in a million years go back to this man.

Dr. Bortnick is everything you would want from a physician-knowledgeable, professional, and pleasant. He seems to genuinely care about his patients' health and well being. He takes the time to listen to all questions and went above and beyond to explain things clearly and concisely. Furthermore, he treated me like a unique person rather than another slab of meat that he is required to jam into his busy schedule. Dr. Bortnick has my trust and I look forward to working with him to manage my healt

Straight and honest. great bedside manners makes me feel like he really does care about my health. this Doctor knows his stuff. he saved my life 10 years ago by finding a failing heart valve during an exam. Dr. Bortnick listens to my concerns and always hands me a hand out on what he finds so I can read up on the illness and medication.

I hit the jackpot when I found this doctor! The man listens to me, answers my questions and explains to me what I don't know & puts up with me. Because he cares for me so much, I care for him. His staff is professional, nice and fun when you poke them with a joke! I have NO plans of ever leaving this doctor. He is a busy man. Lots of people depend on him and he manages time with each one well.

Dr. Bortnick has been my PCP for the last 25 years. I honestly do not know what I would do without him. He treats me as a brother, and I really feel like part of the family. He has always been there for me, whatever I needed. His staff has always been terrific, and very responsive to my needs. Access is never an issue, and we are truly partners in my healthcare. I would recommend him to anyone seeking the best in internal medicine, and have done many times.

Dr. Bortnick has been my Physician for 24 years. I would trust him with my life ! He is very caring and personable and goes out of his way for his patients. I typically see him once every one or two months and he continues to manage about 6 ongoing chronic ailments that I have. I have been in the hospital 5 times for surgeries (elective, and hopefully past tense) and he would visit me every few days and manage my case. He has several times over the years seen me on short notice in an emergency.
