Dr. Scott L Portnoy has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Extremely Bad Experience

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.

Outstanding in all services

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.
