I am certain Dr Porte is competent and capable to treat her patients but her attitude makes me uncomfortable. Her own medical issues ALWAYS take precedence over mine. Her dress is more like a person going "clubbing" rather than more professional attire. Her personal dress code would not be an issue on its own but whe added to her attitude, it matters. I often feel patronized, and demeaned. Unfortunately, as of October 2016, she is My Vernon's only Endo!

At first I really liked Dr Porte- She spent hour and half with me during first visit. She was very nice and helpful - was great to explain. Things started to change after that during my third appointment she was acting weird. For no reason raising her voice. She actually made me break down and cry. She seemed to get mad at slightest things. She was yelling about cross roads and her relationship. she spoke badly about her staff as well. I thought they were doing a good job.
