Dr. Porter is one of the best doctors I have had the pleasure of being in contact with. He is thorough, compassionate and has an excellent beside manner. He provides more than excellent care.

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.
