Orlando, FL |
wonderful doctor.
Orlando, FL |
one of the best in the business. you cannot go wrong with choosing Dr. Porth.
in Pompano Beach, FLa |
Very patient took great care of me
tamarac fl |
Had the worst experience with Dr Porth the first time i went to him he was very pleasant and seemed like he was willing to help with my pain. After sending me for an mri he basically made it like what i was saying about the pain was a lie i felt like i was in an interrogation room. His recommendation go see another doctor for a second opinion well i did and found multiple things wrong and exactly why im having pain i have my opinion for dr porth its time to retire.
Pompano Beach, FL |
Very condescending and rude to my mother who was in great pain. Did nothing to ease her pain other than to say get an MRI. He gave her a steroid shot the first visit and it did not work. Now says it's not a cure all ??? Why give it then. Will not go back
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
He is EXTREMELY RUDE. My very first visit was hopeful. He stated I was young enough where I did not have to do surgery nor go to therapy and I would be healed in 12 weeks. After 8 weeks, there was not one ounce of improvement. Then he suggests I go to therapy and is now telling me it will heal within 6 months. It always takes over an hour to be seen in his office. He laughed at me when I couldn't bend my knee on my 2nd visit. Always in such a rush to TELL you what he wants w/out listening to you
in Coconut Creek |
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.
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.
in Pompano Beach, Fl |
Dr & complete staff very knowledgeable ,courteous & extremely professional .
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
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.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
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've had a total hip done by dr, Porth . I feel great and was up and moving the next day . He was very passionate and considerate .
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 .
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
