Matthews, NC |
Dr. Portwood has been my doctor, and my husband's, for the past 8 years. He has always been very compassionate and concerned. He is great at explaining both procedures and findings. Concerned about comfort and follow-ups. I am a cancer survivor, so I know I have those genetics. My husband has colon cancer in his family - with that said, we feel incredibly blessed to have Dr. Portwood caring for us.

Listened to me and explained everything in easy to understand terms. Easy to talk to. He removed 3 pre-cancerous polyps during routine colonoscopy. If that had gone undetected it could have killed me. He removed them on the spot - didn't even need to come back for second procedure! Very pleased with Dr. Portwood and have recommended him to family and friends!

Dr. Portwood saved my mom's life a year ago. He also took care of my ulcers, and was wonderful.
