Patient Comments (1)

in York, PA |
Dr. Porterfield is one of the two or three best physicians I have ever had in my life. He spends the time necessary with the patient and takes a great deal of interest in my complaints. He is knowledgeable and thorough. I am very pleased to have him as my cardiologist.
