Patient Reviews (6)
Rock Hill, SC |
worse than no care. an utterly abhorrent physician. bedside manner is not bad- iit is non-existent. Worse case of god complex I ever encountered with aggravated contempt and disdain for patients. impatient. inattentive. hostile. condescending. treated me as if I was the problem with the world and nothing I could possibly say would have any way of mattering. no effort was made to disguise his haughtiness. it was openly flaunted. No excuse for such an attitude. A disgrace to the oath he took
York, SC |
This doctor made me feel like my problems were trivial. Charged me $350 to tell me he has no idea about my MRI findings or my other symptoms. Was made to feel insignificant. Made jokes and quieted me while he asked my husband questions about me, THE PATIENT. Clueless and classless. If I could, I would assign 0 out of 5 stars for anything pertaining to him.

This man is a horrible doctor with a horrible bedside manner. He made me cry in an appt because he was berating me and then yelled and asked what I was crying for. I had just finished chemofor breast cancer and was having several episodes of syncope. DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!

it was awful! I was sent there by my primary physician for a lacunar stroke. I wasn't impressed the first time. He acted as if it was no big deal. It was for me. I felt awful. Even though I wasn't paralyzed I had questions he didn't want to listen. I kept having problems so my primary doctor suggested I see him again. Mistake. He acted as if I was wasting his time. He made me feel like my problems were insignificant. I didn't go there for sympathy. I needed answers. No way would I refer him

Continues to take excellent care of my son who was diagnosed with a seizure disorder. First appointment was scheduled very quickly. The staff was very kind and courteous . Dr Porter thoroughly answered all of our questions honestly and thoroughly. He communicated effectively with my son . The prescribed medications have been very effective .

He did not listen to me AT ALL. He wrote a prescription for medication that my primary had already tried for monthlong migraines. He told me ssshhhhh several times throughout the appt. He did not pay any attention to my needs. I would never return and would never ever recommend him and would share my opinion with anyone looking for a neurologist. Steer clear.
