Specialties

Dr. Stephen J Portz has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

After dealing with other offices, it was with a great deal of pleasure that I was able to make an appointment on the first call. Other offices used a voice mail system and never even bothered to call back. I have seen Dr Portz in the past, but this will be the first time for my spouse.

Over medicated

I became as Dr. Portz's patient about a year ago. I have coronary artery disease--not enough for a stint or by-pass. Recommendations led me to Dr. Portz. As his patient, he prescribed 40 mg. of Crestor along with 2.5 Lisinipril and 25 mg of Hydrochlorathyzide. I am 5' and weigh 115 lbs. Six mos after starting on this regimen I developed Stage 3 kidney disease. At this point my Internist took me off of all this medication. I quote my Internist "your kidney has had a major assault" I am now on the road to recovery. Why Dr. Portz chooses to use major amounts of meds instead of titrating the dose to the patient's needs, is beyond me. According to the internet, Crestore overdose can cause kidney issues. A combo of the other two drugs can do the same and all together is absolutely a red flag. Dr Portz should have none better

Too Good To Be True

I have been going to cardiologists for 46 years,since I was 7 years old. I've had the same heart problems all my life. It was not until I saw Dr. Portz that anyone listened, let alone took action to help me. Dr. Portz is extremely knowledgeable, kind and caring. He is a doctor who listens and wants to help you get well. I am forever grateful for Dr. Portz!

A straight shooter

From the first time I met Dr. Portz, I felt I was in extremely good hands. I knew that this gental giant would put forth his best effort to keep me alive and I was right. Dr. Portz is not one to take unnecessary risks or cut corners.He goes in gets the job done and gets out. Dr. Portz would rather not stint an artery, possibly making a bypass of that artery in the future impossible. but would rather refer you for surgy knowing this would be best for you. Dr. Portz is just one fantastic Cariologist in my book.
