Chris Porterfield is the first physician in 72 years who ever gave me his cell phone number and told me to call him if I needed him. Of course one does not want to abuse that privilege. I am one with lots of questions and read alot about my condition and he is willing to explain and answer all of my questions. He responds to the client portal that Coastal Cardiology provides. He is young, bright and very caring and is very thorough. My experience with the office staff has been great.

Dr. Porterfield is an amazing doctor. Truly saves lives. The only down fall with Dr. Porterfield is his staff. They are awful and need extensive training on how to schedule and manage a busy doctor's office. I'm surprised they haven't ALL been fired.
