Dr. Portnoy is the best. I went to him for a second opinion after seeing another doctor who recommended 4 different procedures to deal with my sleep apnea. Dr. Portnoy was no-nonsense and recommended a conservative approach of going ahead with the septum surgery but holding off on anything else until we saw how that affected things. Surgery went without a hitch, recovery was painless and Dr. Portnoy was at all times professional, accessible and reassuring. The one surgery cured the apnea.

I went to Dr. Portnoy with a nasty infection in my right ear that was incredibly painful and kept me from sleeping for two nights in a row. Dr. Portnoy examined my ear, sized up the situation, performed the necessary procedure and set me up with the needed prescriptions in a New York minute. A day later I feel normal again and was finally able to get a good night's sleep. Dr. Portnoy is a no-nonsense doc. If you are a busy proessional like me who values results over chit-chat, he's your guy.
