Dr. Guillermo Portillo is an amazing surgeon and I highly recommend him. He was very professional and took extra time to explain everything to me and we went over my opinions. He answered all my questions and most importantly I felt immediate relief knowing and feeling that I was in good hands. It was easy and fast to schedule my surgery as his staff is also very professional and efficient. The day before my surgery while at the surgery prep I was told by several hospital personnel that I couldn’t have had a better surgeon. The day of my surgery random nurses that were prepping me also express how I was in the best hands and that had nothing to worry about. My surgery was a success and I was very happy with the results. The incisions were so small that days after I felt as if no surgery had taken place. I felt great ! My follow up came around and once again he was very thorough about my results. I feel great! Little to no scars! Trustworthy & Professional!!!

Throughout the process of planning my surgery, Dr. Portillo informed me of options,outlined the procedure, listened to concerns, and answered my questions. The decision to proceed with the procedure was left entirely to me. On the day of the surgery,he once again outlined the procedure; I knew that I was in good hands. After surgery, he checked on me on a regular basis. It took longer than I expected for my intestinal track to recover (everyone recovers at a different pace); at each visit Dr. Portillo calmed me and urged patience. I was released from the hospital almost a week after surgery. I recovered nicely, and expressed my thanks and my appreciation of his medical and surgical skills to Dr. Portillo at my followup visit.

The doctor was very attentive as I voiced my concerns and questions. Eased my anxiety as he explained the procedure I needed. Everyone in the office staff was cordial and quickly acknowledged me when I was in the front office.

Horrible. As soon As I walked into the consultation this guy wants to schedule me in for a surgery without knowing my family history. Then being told i must pay the surgery costs in full prior to surgery. What does this doctor really stand for? Is he really a doctor or was I looked upon a business transaction?

Having 2 prior hernia surgery s, by 2 other prominent surgeons/professors, both times the outcome was not successful. Both times that my hernia was repaired, I developed one because of the surgery. I asked the reason this happened and both times I was given the same answer, "It happens", and no other reason was given. Depressed about the whole hernia surgery thing, I could not give up hope, so I researched for the best surgeon and Dr. Portillo Ramila name kept popping up. With several appointments for that day to find a confident surgeon, Dr. Portillo was my 1st visit. I asked some hard questions and asked why his surgery would be any different. Dr. Portillo explanation of the procedure convinced me that he would be my choice. Just as Dr. Portillo described it would be, it was. Thank God for skilled surgeons such as Dr. Portillo, because I had almost lost hope in finding such a great surgeon who could the job. Will go to no other than Dr. Portillo in the future. ETrevino Jr

Dr. Portillo is an excellent doctor. He did my cholecystectomy and took very good care of me before, during, and after the surgery. He is very reassuring and has good bedside manners. If you’re gonna have a surgery, I absolutely recommend Dr. Portillo.

Dr Portillo is very caring and has some of the best "bedside Manners". He truly cares about the patient and in my case actually recommended doing (and did) all three procedures I needed at the same time. Recovery time was minimal.
