I am so happy I finally met with him because he is great. He is so friendly and helpful and knows very well what he is talking about.

Dr. Portnoy is one of the best doctors I have been to. He listens without judgement and cares about his patients. He took the time to explain all of my options regarding my treatment and is incredibly knowledgeable. Finding a good a psychiatrist in NYC that takes insurance is next to impossible. I'm so happy to have found Dr. Portnoy.
