My name is Dr. Jared Portnoy and I am a Chiropractic physician, working in the Plantation, Florida. I was born and raised in South Florida and completed my entire education here. I am a graduate of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland Florida. I then took the journey over to Nova Southeastern University, in Davie, Florida, where I received a Bachelors in Biology, with a minor in Psychology. Once I finished my undergraduate education, I decided to pursue a doctorate in chiropractic from Keiser University in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Being raised in South Florida was a dream, and I wouldn’t have wanted it to be any other way. I am proud to still be living here; I have a strong love for my South Florida community. While growing up, I watched my father work in family practice and knew from the get-go that I wanted to help people. Growing up, I was always a people person, I could have a conversation with just about any person I come into contact with, and that really helps me today in practice.
Some of my hobbies include traveling, sports and spending time with family and friends. I have traveled all over the world, including Israel, Italy, London and Japan, just to name a few. I am a DIE-HARD Miami Heat fan and love watching football on Sundays. I have my loving family by my side and a group of close friends who I’ve known since the 3rd grade.
I am excited to continue to serve the South Florida community, through the means of chiropractic. I hope to help as many people as I can!
What made you decide to pursue a career in chiropractic?
I became a chiropractor after working with a family friend who is also in the field. While shadowing and working, I saw the benefits of what chiropractic can do for a person, and I knew that I would be able to help a lot of people with their acute and chronic pains. In a world where opioids are being abused by a large number of the population, chiropractic medicine provides a natural relief of pain, allowing the body to heal itself. I learned that as a chiropractor, it is my job to help facilitate this healing process through different modalities and exercises, along with a routine adjustment.
