Verified Patient Reviews
There are no other ENT's who come close to his expertise in voice care, quality and knowledge. In every area including testing equipment, thoroughness and bedside manner, he rises above others who do not specialize in this area. If you have a serious problem and there is a long wait to book an appointment with him, call the office and tell them it is an emergency. I did not know this via ZocDoc, had I known this I would have seen only him and not wasted my precious time going elsewhere. The #1 Voice Doc on LI!
He was very thorough, kind and accommodating. Made sure i left understanding everything that went on as he was doing it. I would definitely recommend him to others.
We should have gone to him from the start. He specializes in laryngeal issues. He by far, was the most knowledgeable and experienced doctor in this area. He explained specifically what was wrong, used specialized equipment other ENT's did not have. And, planned a course of the end result, regaining my voice! This, after 17 days and TWO other doctors (ENTs).
Very nice doctor
Incredibly thorough, knowledgeable, patient and clear.
Great , good at what he does and dedicated to his patients.
Dr. Portnoy was very informative. He explained everything before he proceeded with a laryngoscopy, and also explained all the results of the test. He had realistic and helpful suggestions. He answered any question I posed to him. I never felt rushed, as one so often does with doctors.

Dr. Portnoy was very nice and patient. The office is very clean and staffs are nice. I had to ditch my previous ENT doc. After the first appointment with dr. Portnoy, I have to say i made the right decision. Highly recommended for ENT, sleep disorder patients.
Dr Portnoy could not have been more professional, as was his staff. His clinical skills are excellent and he spent time with me explaining the results of tests and procedures. I was taken into an exam room pretty quickly but then had to wait in the room about 30 minutes before the doctor came in. This was somewhat annoying, but I understand that doctor offices get backed up at times. Other than the extended wait time, i would absolutely recommend Dr Portnoy to anyone looking for an ENT.
Dr. Portnoy is a wonderful combination of informative and courteous. He addressed every one of my concerns, with patience and professonalism. He took the time to explain everything and wanted to make sure any of my questions or concerns were answered. He really mad this appointment comfortable and pleasant. He didn't rush my appointment and eased my anxiety. I highly recommend him.
