Dr.Poritz was very knowledgeable and explained the surgery very clearly and precise and asked if I had any questions several times. I appreciated everything she said!

It was clear the provider knows her stuff, is very experienced, and I assume she will do an expert job at the procedure I will be having with her in a couple of months. She also provided some anatomical explanations about my condition that were helpful. However, she was very brisk and brusque, asked few questions about me as a person and exhibited no empathy for the larger concerns I shared with her. In some instances, I felt she was even dismissive of those concerns. I felt that all I represented to her during that visit was the piece of anatomy in which she specialized.

Excellent reply time to get this appointment. The exam in the Doctor's office was not expected since I was told it was a consultation but welcomed to find out my problem. From there it was easy to prescribe the right medication to help me.

It was a pleasure to talk to Dr. Poritz who actually looked at and listened to me, rather than just reading the computer and who explained things thoroughly. A real pleasure.

I've seen 4 drs. in a year (takes a long time for referrals due to COVID) I was disappointed Dr. Poritz couldn't resolve my problem. Each of 4 drs. have said basically "it's not my speciality, problem, issue etc., & sent me to ANOTHER DOCTOR!

I was given an appointment without a primary phycian's recommendation. That was a plus for me. Everything and everyone was nice, and professional.

The provider did not seem too concerned about my medical complaint. That can be a good or bad thing. However, my expectation coming to the office was something would be done to help me with this medical problem. Just some home remedies were suggested. I left the office feeling kind of embarrassed for being there. Two weeks later , I continue to have discomfort in this area particular area with minimal change In my condition. I'm sure she is a very competent provider but maybe could listen or sense her patient's needs a bit more.
