Dr. Portela was super nice. However, my appointment was at 2:15pm and I didn’t see her until 3:15pm and only spoke to her for five minutes. She basically told me to message her through the portal. She was in the middleof seeing another patient so I understood there was a more urgent matter at hand but I felt like I wasn’t properly seen.

My first visit was for what could be an awkward concern. Dr Portela addressed it delicately before I told her it was okay to be blunt with me. From there forward, she was just that. She took the time to address all my concerns with patience and no judgement.

The doctor was great. She listened and was very thoughtful and considerate. My only complaint is that there was very poor followup by the office. I am still waiting for important information regarding the tests they gave me and haven't been able to reach the office.
