I would have liked more active listening as my conditions worsened and the only move was more prescriptions. I have since stopped the prescriptions and the symptoms lessened. Had he taken a bit more time to listen or ask probing questions, I believe he could have found other solutions to help. I have since sought help elsewhere and would not recommend this practice.

Do not go to Dr. Port! My brother had an endoscopy by him in August and was told he had Barrett's syndrome. He died 6 months later from esophageal cancer. He was misdiagnosed. I am so sorry he did not go to competent Doctor that could have diagnosed his cancer earlier. He would have had so many more options.

My experience was positive. Scheduled for a colonoscopy, pleasant bedside manner, discussed findings with myself and family member whom was present.

VERY UNDERSTANDING & COMPASSIONATE DOCTOR!!
New Lenox, IL |
We would NOT ever recommend Dr. Port!! Talks down to patients; very arrogant, demeaning; orders many unnecessary tests (new gastro doctor agreed) and does not deliver results for months. Office staff makes ridiculous excuses for his lack of timeliness and his inefficiencies: our printer is out of ink or broken, & the doctor is out of town this MONTH. No associates? His retirement would be best for his patients! Even the nurses in the outpatient testing area cannot stand to work with him!
He was the most arrogant Doctor I have ever encountered. I would not send any of my loved ones to him and will make it a point to never see him as a patient. Medical school means nothing when you are an absolute jerk. Terrible human being and Doctor.
