in Columbia, PA |
One of the most caring and genuine doctors I've ever encountered. He's young but exceptionally knowledgeable.
in Peach Bottom PA 17563 |
Dr. P. is simply the best! Kind, caring, compassionate. The best bed side manner of any Doctor I've EVER had and I'm old! When I freak out and am convinced I'm going blind he calms me down and lets me know it's all going to be ok and reassures me I am not going blind LOL. If anybody can make getting shots in eyes pleasant it would be Dr. P.

Best bedside manner of any doctor I ever had a relationship with. Caring, attention to detail, friendliness and answering any questions is superior. Has a quiet confident manner that puts you at ease.
in Lititz, PA |
My experience with Dr. Porbandarwalla was excellent. Emergency retinal detachment surgery. Although extremely busy, his attention to detail, and memory of my case was excellent. Bedside manner is excellent, as is follow up. Highly recommended.
