Sadly, I have had to recommend Dr. Portnoy to friends diagnosed with Cancer & I didn’t have to think twice about it.. He is caring and thorough, personal yet professional. He makes me feel like I’m the only person on his schedule. He is fantastic and deserves 10 stars.

He missed the fact that I had multiple myeloma, a blood/bone marrow cancer, for 2 years! My PCP caught it and said it had been showing in my blood tests he had done for over 2 yrs. I would NEVER recommend him to anyone! He rushes people in and out like they are cattle at an auction. Maybe had he took the time to really look at my tests, I would have longer to live.

Very Intelligent Oncologist. He saved my life. Truly cares about his patients and does his job in an efficient manner. Very intelligent, it’s no wonder he instructs medical students.

I would not recommend ANYONE to Dr. Portnoy for treatment. He did NOTHING to help my husband. I believe he though my husband was a waste of time because of the type of cancer he had. My husband's condition worsened because he and his incompetent nurse's delaying on approving with his insurance different treatments. They herded us in and out like we were bothering them. No concern what so ever for my husband's care or the pain he was suffering. I would not seek treatment if he were my option.
