I needed to have my gallbladder removed. I was worked in quickly and Dr. Porter was professional throughout the entire process. Very friendly and efficient. His staff was also very helpful as I was in the middle of changing health insurance at the time of my operation.

Dr. Porter is very thorough in explaining his diagnosis & recommended course of action. I had my gall bladder removed. All went well and after 2 weeks was released to go back doing whatever I felt like, which included golf 4-5 times a week. I had no complications from surgery, healed quickly, and can eat anything. I understand that Dr. Porter is a strong Christian and prays before each surgery for God to guide his team and his hands to effect a positive outcome. I like that.
