Wish there could have been more explanation about what it could be and what was causing it, instead of just talking about a surgery when I made no comment about wanting or having a surgery. I mostly came because I was referred and wanted to gain more information from a professional.

Dr. Porter isn't what I would call conversive, but he was kind, gentle, and professional. He didn't really tell me he was going to cauterize my nose until he was beginning the procedure, but I already knew it needed to be done and I actually appreciated the delay in info in this situation. It eased my anxiety tremendously to not know exactly when this was beginning. I was grateful that he was aware of my anxiety over the bleeding beginning as I walked into the building. He was very kind and calm as he told me to hold still. He told me when I would feel the sensation and then gently told me to hold still. His kind voice helped me get through a painful procedure. And then numbing medicine he used was great! When I said, That medicine tastes nasty. I could here the affirming and sympathetic smile in his voice as he said,Yes, it does!
