Dr. Porter and his staff managed the healthcare of both my daughters for their entire childhood. He was always great with them and very good about following up with chronic problems. He was a super pediatrician for my girls and I wish he was on my insurance plan now that my granddaughter needs a pediatrician.

Fabulous patient care. My child loved the visit and she felt very comfortable with the doctor. I absolutely would recommend this to every parent. I am not changing this doctor even if I don't have insurance.

Best experience ever. I have taken my children to several Pediatricians and was not satisfied until we saw Dr. Porter. He interacts with my kids and they feel very comfortable with him. He is knowledgeable and patient. His office responds quickly to our needs and appointments are readily available.

My son was one of Dr. Porter's first patients in his practice, back in 1992. He went on to treat my daughter as well (after her arrival in 1994), and provided such excellent care from birth to graduation (i.e. 18) that both still fondly recall their visits to Dr. Quarter. I can't imagine their growing up years without this wonderful doctor in their world.
