Some of the Drs. offices are NOT paying attention to the attitudes of their front desk staff....some employees seems to think they OWN the office, if they are having a bad day....and word does NOT get to the Dr...it is hurting their business by some patients NOT getting to speak to the Dr. himself...this is in regards to Dr. Porter...I am going to speak to my Primary Dr. having him ask Dr. Porter to call me....never in the 50 years have I even been spoken so poorly to by any staff member!!!

I just don't understand this Doctor or this place. I will start by saying it was a very pleasant experience when I finally got my back shots but this office is really lazy. Porter never examined me in any way. No leg lift tests. No tiptoe test. NOTHING. My consult was Porter on a coffee break!. I know what I need and I went on just so I could the shots. After the shots? I heard NOTHING from them, I mean absolutely NOTHING. Pain Mgmt? Go elsewhere. He's actually an eye surgery Doctor.

He is knowledgeable, friendly and always cheerful. He has helped me get back to being able to walk after back injuries.

I found Dr Porter easy to work with and felt he was respectful about my desire to use as few interventions as possible.

He refused to treat me after I called to inform them that I was unhappy with my previous experience - lumbar injections. He went on a bizarre tirade. I am on the spectrum and also suffer from chronic GAD. He implied I was trying force him to give me a higher dose of sedation. NOT TRUE. I called to tell them they should have looked at my file to see that I have anxiety disorder - something he admitted he doesn't take seriously. He refused to treat me because I'm autistic and have mental illness.
