I've been seeing Dr Porter for my MG since 2013. He is very knowledgeable and displays genuine concern for my individual needs. He takes the time needed to ensure I understand the what and why of my treatment. His staff is very friendly and they also take the time to help me with my needs. Thank you for the wonderful care you have given me and continue to give me.
