I did not have a very good time with Dr. Portz. He never finished with me as far as Iam concerned and told me to find another doctor ... *I felt hurried, and not able to explain, I felt like he did not understand my handicapps. and didn't want to take the time to listen .. Never checked my hormone levels, or did anything I thought he should have done ... Glad to be away from him ..

Im beyond thrilled with Dr. Portz and his professionalism with making sure i get the treatment needed. He accomplished more in one visit than Dr.s in Jackson, MI have in a year and a half. Im soooo relieved to have found him.

I was referred to Dr Portz for unexplained vaginal bleeding. He did a biopsy which came back negative. Because of family history we opted for total abdominal hysterectomy. An exam of uterus post surgery found stage one cancer was present. The surgery was curative and i now follow up every 6 months to make sure it doesn't return. Dr Portz is easy to talk to and I feel that we are partners in my healthcare.

Dr. Portz was very compassionate and took my concerns very seriously. He spent as much time as I needed, and did not make me feel rushed, nor did he seem impatient. The only problem I had--is that a medication he ordered, I knew my insurance wouldn't cover. He assured me they would. They didn't. I was supposed to hear back from staff today to see if it needed prior authorization, but didn't receive a call. Dr. Portz, though, is great.
I was refered for abnormal bleeding.he starts every appointment with internal ultrasound before examination,I am registered in ultrasound he only looks very limited, and labeled rt ovary every time ,my rt was removed 20yrs ago.with a d&c the lab showed early cancer cells ,he said take hormones would get rid of, 10 mos. later I went for 2nd opinion told hormones make cancer grow- had total hysterectomy,found cancer spread into ut wall,lrg uterine fibroids not seen/found by portz$300for1ultrasound
