Dr. Porras is the most kind and understanding Dr. I have had in a really long time. I feel safe in his care, something I have not felt since I was a child. I couldn't be happier with Dr. Porras, and I know that he will always do what's in my best interest regarding my health. I am truly blessed to have found the best!!!
