We appreciate Dr Porter and his expertise.

Dr Porter did a fantastic job of listening to my symptoms and found the cause very quickly and efficiently. I was seen by another well know ENT 8 years ago and he did not listen to my concerns nor did he correctly diagnose my condition. It was a very refreshing experience for me.

Really liked him
Jul 3, 2022
I didn't have much confidence after the first visit with this doctor, but the second confirmed that he is not very bright in his understanding of his medical practice. He gave me completely bogus, 100% factually wrong advice.

He was great as far as including me in decisions about my care. Basically, he gave me the options I could choose from and left it up to me to decide what to do. I did like that because I have the option to get my tonsils out if I decide it's worth it to me but they weren't the cause of the issue I came in for.Dr. Porter didn't seem to be the happiest person but that could just be his personality so that's fine. He was also a bit rough with the tongue depressor and I do wish I had more of an explanation for some things. .

Doctor Porter was extremely thorough in his check up, his explanation of my problem, & setting a plan to get me better. He made sure to do the necessary tests to rule out any other problems.

This care provider is great with managing the same conditions day in and day out, but demonstrates no interest in tackling unusual cases

Dr Porter provided a thorough exam for me being a new patient of his, I appreciated that he DID read up on the transferred records from my former provider. It did just feel quite rushed in discussing his thoughts BEFORE letting me finish my own, but overa

He was very personable (even told me my clothes were festive). He gave me a routine that I can try to take care of myself if the bleeding starts again. He sent a prescription to my pharmacy and seemed very thorough and was kind.

The doctor was very behind his schedule. In an attempt to try to catch up, he spoke very quickly and we felt rushed. He did answer our questions, but the rushed nature of the appointment wasn't good.
Nov 18, 2021
Dr.Porter was leaps and bounds better than any other ENT we've seen. He was very thorough in his physical examination and gathering the history of our problem

I appreciate the services that was provided and both the nurses and the doctors really care but the focused was on covid but my primary reason for the visit was for chronic and excessively non ending coughing, which I'm still experiencing right now.
