Dr. Porter has recently been referred to our family. His office got us in quickly, made a plan, and got us going. It is never good when you have a family member diagnosed with cancer but I am so grateful Dr. Christian in Greenwood referred us to him. He has gotten my Dad a diagnosis, treatment planned, and GOD willing help in living longer! The office staff is fabulous and we love Ruth Hall who has been a great liason and nurse!

I actually enjoyed my appointment with Dr. Porter. He made me feel comfortable and eased my worries about my knee. He was fun to talk with and I did not feel like he was rushing me through. Dr. Porter, his Resident - Dr. Hunter and the female student working with them answered all of my questions and educated me on important information relating to my knee. I would highly recommend Dr. Porter and his Staff.
in Greenville, SC |
Dr. Porter removed an unusual suspended bone mass from my left leg. Dr. Porter, the surgical center personnel and the supporting doctors and nurses were cheerful and professional. Dr. Porter was obviously concerned with my confidence, safety, health and recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Porter.

in Hendersonville, NC |
Honest, thorough and highly skilled. One of the best physicians that I have ever had the opportunity of knowing. As a pharmacist and someone who has spent a significant amount of time seeing treatments at the Mayo Clinic, this is quite the compliment.
Ocean Springs, MS |
Dr. Porter treated me when I had a very rare form of cancer, a lipo sarcoma, which he removed from my right thigh. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor to take care of me at this time of my life. He is very smart, truthful, professional, caring. I hate he was unable to stay in Mississippi, but wish he and his family all the best in South Carolina. If I ever had a rare situation like lipo sarcoma again, I would fly to South Carolina to see him there.
in Belton, SC |
I would highly recommend Dr Porter. I would give high marks to his Medical Asst Ruth Hall.
