from Chales in CA March 29, 2017 for Edward B. Portnoy, MD

Dr. Portnoy is a very kind person. Were it not for him the last 8 years would have been difficult for me and my wife. He has nurtured me to the tender age of 98 and we are looking forward to making it to 100.
Being available, with great advise and encouragement at odd hours, has been priceless. The best action we took is to join MDVIP.
Thank you for such fine service.

from Ronald in CA March 28, 2017 for Edward B. Portnoy, MD

I like my ability to phone Dr. Portnoy on his personal cell phone 7 days per week and get him on the phone virtually every time I have called.
I do not have to be routed through incompetent office staff, as has been my experience over the last 60 years with dozens of other physicians.
That should be the most distinctive selling point for MDVIP.
It is well worth the annual fee… See more

from Janet in CA March 9, 2016 for Edward B. Portnoy, MD

Due to a local pharmacy filling my Rx with the incorrect medication, which I ingested, I could have become more ill and incapacitated or worse than I did, unless Dr Portnoy had not responded with immediate response to my phone call with my symptoms of passing out. He leaped into immediate investigation on the kind of med the pharmacy filled incorrectly, tried to get back to me at home, but I… See more

This May my husband will be 97 years young. Was it not for being a patient of Dr. Portnoy, I do not believe he would have reached this age.
We receive excellent care and concern, I cannot imagine what our lives would have been like without this personal attention.
Thank you a lot.

from Shirley in CA February 11, 2015 for Edward B. Portnoy, MD

My experience is quite ordinary and yet still quite satisfactory. In spite of my age I am in excellent health. Good genes, I think.

from Reuben in CA February 25, 2014 for Edward B. Portnoy, MD

I have been a member since 2008. The value of peace of mind of knowing that I have the uninterrupted and complete attention of one of the best-known practitioners in my geography pleases me - it is an investment that exceeds my expectations. Dr. Portnoy and staff are highly regarded by me - I am a healthcare practitioner pharmacist and I recognize compassionate care. I pray for Dr. Portnoy… See more

Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to show our gratitude for the people that remain behind the scenes, yet make such an enormous difference.

Its hard to imagine not having a true confidant in our lives; someone with whom we can share our most intimate secrets, embarrassing moments, frailties and triumphs big and small. Its our family… See more

from Charles in CA February 11, 2014 for Edward B. Portnoy, MD

We feel very fortunate to have Dr. Portnoy as our physician. He has great bedside manners and is a most dedicated doctor.
We always get an answer to our concerns and my husband credits Dr. Portnoy with getting him to the ripe age of 95.
Thank you for always being there for us, we hope for continued good health for all of us.

from ronald in CA February 9, 2014 for Edward B. Portnoy, MD

i particularly like having his cell phone number and I have called him directly on it dozens of time in the last year. I did not like being routed through office personnel and answering services and answering machines by other physicians I have engaged in the past.

from Mike in CA February 8, 2014 for Edward B. Portnoy, MD

Doctor Ed:

He is through and takes time during my visit to do annual physical. If there is anything new regards preventive tests he makes that info available. I feel thoroughly taken care of.
