I was given an appointment for 10:30. I expected to have to wait a little bit, but it was after 12:15 when the doctor finally walked in the exam room. I was just about to leave as no one should have to wait that long on any doctor. It seems this is not uncommon for this place as other people in the waiting room stated they had waited for 4 hours before. Not going back.
I have been wearing glasses for more than 50 years. I've been to a LOT of eye doctors. Dr. Portnoy is the BEST of them all. I have a very difficult prescription. I'm a -14.50 with severe astigmatism. I have not really been able to see well for the past 30 years. I was considering going to Thailand for Interoccular lens implants. I decided to give just one more local doctor a shot. And even though Dr. Portnoy was not optimistic about solving my problems - he did it. He fitted me for contacts for astigmatism and I now have nearly 20/20 vision. i"m seeing things for the first time in many years. Dr. Portnoy and his technicians spent a significant amount of time working with me to get the contacts right on the first try. I also was impressed with the courtesy and efficiency of his office staff. As a business person whose time is extremely limited I also appreciated that there were no significant wait times in his Natrona Heights, PA, office. I would highly recommend Dr. Portnoy and especially to anyone who has had long-time problems with their eye sight.
