I was referred to Dr. Porth after my mother fell and broke her arm at the shoulder level. The doctor was patient, kind and took the time to make us understand all possible healing paths reflecting his extensive knowledge and experience and excellent bedside manners.

Lovely Staff and excellent doctor. He really listened to me and I am having surgery next month.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
This doctor did all kind of tests and then, because I apparently took too long to come back to his office, told me there was nothing he could do for me and there was nothing wrong with my leg. He told me I should go to another doctor and get another opinion.

Dr & complete staff very knowledgeable ,courteous & extremely professional .

I had a total left hip replacement done this past January 2016. The skills and experience that Dr. Manuel Porth brings to the world of medical were sufficient for me to ask him to perform surgery on me. This first surgery was followed with another successful operation which was done this time as a total right hip replacement dated this past May 2016. Correct, both sides were done within 5 months.THANK YOU Dr. Porth and to his professional staff. Recommending without hesitation.

Dr Porth is warm compassionate & combined with his years experience provides great care. He has helped my significant other with a difficult dibilitating injury to her ankle thru surgery and ongoing treatment and her pain has been elevated. A truly great man & physician.
in Coral Springs, FL |
Dr. Porth is wonderful. He is very pleasant, and most importantly, very skilled. He put a walking cast on my broken leg and a splint on my other ankle. He is very enjoyable to talk to and shows great concern for his patients. I felt very confident having him treat me.

in Boca Raton, FL |
I had a great experience he took his time with me , and explained my X-rays and procedure for a total knee .
in Tamarac, FL |

Exceptional care from Dr. Porth
Tamarac, FL |
Kind and concerned
Coral Springs , FL |
Anyone who lets this doctor do surgery on them is crazy! He does not listen to the patients concern or pain. I suffered for 3 months listening to him to walk on an injured foot that needed surgery.Consulted with 3 other doctors and they all said it was not wise to listen to this doctor. My foot got even worst.Can't trust him being alert so I surely won't trust him while being under anesthesia.
Hollywood, FL |
Excellent doctor and staff!
Coral Springs |
I had my first visit with Dr. Porth and was very impressed with him. He showed interest in my issues and was very caring. I am very pleased. Staff is absolutely wonderful
Pompano Beach, FL |
Wait is long. He drained my knee and it really hurt! He never explained why.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
FIND SOMEONE ELSE! Dr. Porth is not good at actually listening to his patients and really taking in your concerns. Also, on all 3 visits I had to wait for an hour or longer (one time it was 1 hr 45 mins before they even took me in!), and that's not including the time I had to wait in the actual examination rooms. SOME of the staff/assistants are friendly/helpful but Porth himself is not. I went on to another doc and he was infinitely better in his communication, approach, and bedside manner.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
First, the front desk was the only pleasant experience with this doctor. Waited over 1 1/2 hours to be seen. The doctor was the absolute rudest man I have ever meet. Even before he had a chance to review anything (X-rays , MRI's) he was so damn rude to a point I got up & left his office & said No Thank You!!! Plain rude!!!!!! He should be banned from the medical field. Do not go to this doctor!!!!!!!
in Tamarac fl |
I would have to totally disagree with the statements made. My experience with this doctor and staff was amazing. Everyone is very kind and caring. The doctor sat with me and explained everything to me in great detail. He spent a lot of time with me and I never felt rushed. I would recommend him to anyone.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
I would have to agree with the person who said to RUN from here....he doesn't really care about his patients at all, its one horror story after the other...He gave me a shot $1000 for severe knee pain that actually made things worse...After he messes you up he is going to tell you to get a 2nd opinion or that he's done all he could...Trust the reviews....you can't make this up...He should not be in practice anymore.
in Tamarac FL |
He doesn't listen his surgery is poor I had to find another doctor to do surgery over a year later this doctor is a hacker after he ate did my surgery I get complaint for six months and he didn't care
