in 9797 Leawood Blvd, Houston, TX |
I have been Dr. Porter's patient for so long and I do receive very high attention when ever I visit him at his clinic at Sweetwater Blvd, Sugarland. I hold him in high regard as a decent Ophthalmologist. I am referring a friend to him in the next 3 days. He successfully carried out surgery operations on both my eyes and since then have had no issue seeing with or without my glasses. Cornelius A. Agwunobi

Dr. Porter answered questions and explained the result. The only difference is he did not double check some of his staff's findings unlike at the Memorial Hermann location. He repeated tests like eye pressure and peripheral vision.
