I scheduled an appointment 2 months in advance in Steamboat.T hey called to cancel it with zero apology, an assumption that I would be available the next week (I wasn't), and then told me flippantly that I could "drive to Denver" (3.5hours one way to his location) to see him. The person had ZERO concern or consideration for what they had just done to my schedule.

After having a baby that was 17 ounces at birth I went to see Dr. Porreco with our next pregnancy. He delivered our beautiful, healthy 7 1/2 pound baby girl!!! Not to mention, a great guy!
