Dr. Porter's Experience

Research training, expertise and qualifications

Care Philosophy

As a general primary care internist, I try to provide all my patients basic health care needs. I believe healthy lifestyle and preventive medicine are the foundation to good health. Our aim is to treat each individual with respect and fairness. If specialized care is needed then those referrals are made but we will remain in a gate keepers role to coordinate care. Our practice is ranked high in quality and low in cost of overall healthcare.
