He was so attentive, listens well and answers all your questions, so thorough in explanation, so generous with his time and supplies. When I had trouble healing, he offered another (successful) solution. Though I hated my situation, I was so very thankful for his care. He literally saved my life! You cannot be in better hands!

Dr.P is a doctor who takes the time to explain your diagnosis and the follow up care required. His bedside and office manner are very professional yet friendly. He is very knowledgeable and I couldn’t ask for better care. His office staff is wonderful and very organized.

Being new to the NJ area, a friend referred me to Dr. Porbunderwala. Dr. P makes you feel welcome with a minimal wait upon arrival. He listens, explains medical issues/conditions on a patient's level, and works with the patient to discuss options for treatment. If surgery is required, he is graciously available for his patients, which is most appreciated. Dr. Porbunderwala has been such a blessing to my family and we would recommend him highly to care for you and your family, as well.

I Just came home from the hospital after having colon resection and goal bladder removal with Dr. Porbunderwala. I must say that from beginning to end Dr. Steve could not have been better. He takes the time to explain why you need the procedure and what could likely happen if you don't. His surgical staff was top notch as well. I was in Morristown Memorial hospital for four days and between the hospital and Doctors the experience was wonderful. Thank you Dr. Steve

I was referred to Dr. Porbunderwala by my general practitioner. I was apprehensive about my initial appointment due to being embarrassed about my problem. The staff was excellent. However, I had no idea how genuinely caring Dr. P was during his interaction with me. I was tearful about my problem, and he gave me some hope with the various options for care if the first step he prescribed did not work. He explained everything in detail with me and took his time. I cannot recommend him enough.

I was sent to Dr. Porbunderwala by my GP on an emergency. I could not have been happier with the care I received by Dr. P and his staff. Seeing that I was in a great deal of pain, I was quickly diagnosed and sent to the hospital where Dr. P performed the surgery that night to relieve my pain. I am very grateful for everything he did for me that day and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Excellent Dr., caring staff, great experience in a difficult situation.

He treated me as the on-call doctor when I was admitted to Morristown Hospital for a colon abscess. I saw him for a followup and he recommended colon resection surgery, which was verified by a second opinion. He did a great job on the surgery and 2 weeks later, I feel good. I found Dr. P to be very kind and caring, and he explained everything in detail and in lay terms without talking down to me. I highly recommend him!!!
