Cardiology | Male | 60 years old

Of utmost importance is for my patient to feel complete confidence in me. To be reassured each time he/she is seen that great care will be taken to diagnose and treat any cardiovascular problem. I also strive to be extremely accessible for a patient to be seen in my office. Either an existing patient or new referral to be seen same day if needed, even if my office is already full. Cardiac diseases can change quickly and many times one or two weeks is just NOT satisfactory. I take great pride and appreciation in the trust my patients give me and especially when I see so many of the family members and friends. I maintain up to date training with procedures, treatments and offer excellence of care not given elsewhere. I will always give of myself to give to my patients the care they deserve.Read more

My husband was Dr. Portz patient for many years. Armand looked forward to seeing the good doctor because of the excellent care he was given. Dr. Portz always went above and beyond making sure that Armand had quality care when he was in the hospital. I am now a patient of Dr. Portz and I would never think of going to anyone else. I feel at easy with him and I can talk to him about anything. What a wonderful doctor and human being Dr. Portz is.
