Salt Lake City, UT |
I suffered with diabetes and weight issues for more than 20 years. I was referred to Dr. Porter by a friend who said Dr. Porter had helped hundreds of people with diabetes. I am thankful and amazed. In less than two months I have lost nearly 40 pounds, I am off my insulin and I have never felt better!!! Diabetics don't often say they are cured, usually they talk about all their medications. I am glad to have found Dr. Porter. I have referred more than 20 of my friends.

Very nice man but always runs 1-2 hours behind & very rushed when he finally come into the exam room. I think he is way to busy to be thorough.

I'm looking forward to resolving my issues with my large intestine after having had emergency surgery. I'm feeling impatient because I have to wait for time to pass by and let me wound heal. Its not his fault, its the human body..... I would like to have more specific instructions of what my diet should be, rather than generally what to hold carbs, protein at. Thank you
Ogden, UT |
I would give Dr. Porter a 10 on everything. Great doctor!!

Ogden, UT |
I appreciate that Dr. Porter is passionate about and confident in his profession. I trust him with my digestive health concerns...
Kaysville, UT |
Dr. Porter was arrogant, and had no time to talk about patient history. He wanted to throw out all history and start back at square zero. He didn't want to look at what sent me to him in the first place and was only concerned with doing every endoscopic procedure available and appeared to insult pharmacists and other physicians with little regard for their findings and advice. He practices bully medicine, and I would only recommend him if you had to get the complete testing panel fast.
in Ogden, UT |
He is very rushed. I've had 2 appointments now where he came in, asked me 1 or 2 questions, came up with what he thought was wrong (but didn't explain to me why he thought that), and rushed me back out. 115$ for a 5 minute appointment. Whenever I asked questions he gave very short answers, and he talked down to me like some kind of idiot when I asked questions about a diet he had put me on. He is very lacking in compassion and just acts rudely and snobby. I'm tired of doctors like this.
