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 seemed in a rush and had ZERO bed side manner. You can tell she just wanted to get it over with. She didn't listen to what I had to say, at all. She knew nothing about health and healing Just treating, which is most doctors, unfortunately She already had in her head what she wanted to say, which is how you could tell she wasn't listening. The nurse and front desk lady we're very friendly though and made me feel comfortable, so that was a plus.

I was referred to this Dr by my regular care physician for an early screening, which seemed to aggravate Dr Poritz since I'm below the normal age for screening and didn't have any symptoms that suggested I needed to be screened. She was dismissive, abrupt, and interrupted me several times when I tried to explain why my regular care physician referred me, and when I provided previous medical history. If I have to go back I will ask for any Dr other than Dr Poritz. I have no doubt Dr Poritz is highly trained and knowledgeable in her field, however her "bedside manner" is as delicate as a rusty saw. I work In customer service, and was a bit shocked at the lack of soft skills on display for someone in a roll that routinely deals with patients face to face. I felt the roll of mediator fell on me to de-escalate tension with Dr. Poritz, which Is completely backwards for a patient / physician consultation.I have no complaints at all for the other office staff.

The doctor was very dismissive, condescending, and lacked bedside manner. Sure was completely ignorant of alternative therapies which I asked about because surgeries are not being scheduled and I need help with my medical issue. I would never see this doctor again.

I feel it was unnecessary and a lack of appreciation for my time, to have to come 20 minutes before my appointment, as was asked repeatedly by phone and email reminder since I had filled out the pre-registration paperwork/health history. I sat there for 15 minutes - alone in the waiting room until my appt. Time. If yoi don't fgill it out - I understand - but my check-in took less than 5 minutes.

Probably won't be coming back. I had to wait 3 weeks for an appointment that was cancelled and rescheduled for later when I needed to be seen no later than 2 weeks. It was a waste of time and money.

I have already recommended Dr. Poritz to family - she was professional without being cold, and had a great sense of humor. Which in her line of work is a plus!
