It was my first time to see a Dermatologist and Dr. Porres made our 1st Doctor-Patient encounter very comfortable. He was very attentive & so funny. He made it a point to ask if there are other issues that need medical attention. He was very accommodating & understands the financial burden of treatment. I will definitely recommend him.

He was friendly, at times even funny, always very thorough in his explanations. Took all the time to make sure I understood what I had to do. I will be back any time I need a dermatologist. The only time it took waiting was for the staff to verify the status of my insurance
