What People Say About Dr. Michael Porter, MD
Reply
I wish I'd never met Dr. Porter. Do not see him if you want someone who will spend time going over your options, warning you of what to expect post-operation, and generally caring about what you're going through. I had no idea going into my operation that recovery would take months. I would've never agreed to it. At my followup appointment he couldn't even remember everything he'd done until I brought it up. I won't be seeing him again.

Dr Porter performed unnecessary, multiple biopsies on private area without offering a differential diagnosis or alternative treatments. A simple cortisone cream cleared the problem. I was under general anesthesia in a major hospital in Wichita and it was a huge expense and with extreme discomfort with a long recovery. He only wanted the money from the surgery. The day of the surgery he came storming in the room and rudely said "Let's get this show on the road". On follow up he humiliated me
