Dr. Porter lacks professionalism and etiquette when he interacts with you. He was rude, abrasive and condescending. He uses your appointments to ramble on and on about nonsense and wastes your time. I dont feel that I gained any insight from my time with Dr. Porter. He was rude to me before my procedure at the hospital, which made me uncomfortable during an already very vulnerable state, and then refused to discuss anything about the procedure after while I was in recovery. I've never had a doctor do that!! The office is outdated, the walls are so paper thin that you can hear an entire interview of the person next to you, and it smells like liver and onions. To add to the insults, misinformation, and dangerous advice given by Dr. Porter, I was sent a letter rejecting ME as a patient! The arrogance is mindblowing!! I didnt plan on returning to Dr Porter as a patient, but now I think I'll let the next person know not to waste their time and money either.

During our chat after my colonoscopy Dr Porter mentioned to me that if everyone quit eating sugar, cancer rates would be cut in half. Even though my colonoscopy was negative that statement stuck with me, so much so that I started on the Keto diet and now several other health problems (most notably high blood pressure) have resolved themselves. Now understand he did not recommend a Keto diet but he planted that no-sugar seed and I am a healthier 72 year old for it.

The fact that I chose to drive 250 miles one way to be seen and treated by Dr. Porter says a great deal about my confidence in him as a provider. I should like to mention he has a great staff as well.

If I could give zero stars I would! I have never been more insulted by a Dr. in my life. The Dr walked in as I was talking to her and ask what was going on. She went on to explain my frustration. She left and then He looked at me and said that if I was going to be mad at him right off the bat I was welcome to go to someone else. I then told him that I wasn’t getting mad at him but more so the situation and the inconsideration to my circumstances. I mentioned that all he needed to do was to show some empathy and say he was sorry??He then began to just stare me down and said that he did say he was sorry ( all he ever said was, “well sorry it happens”?!) He then sat down to pull up my chart and I told him that I would be leaving because there was no way he could help me with how he was treating me. He then said “fine” to which I said I have never been so mistreated by a Dr and that he had horrible bedside manner. To which he replied “thank you” I left in tears
