Dr Porter listened to all of my concerns and explained clearly what he felt the best plan of action for me would be. I felt comfortable about the treatment I received and the entire staff was helpful during my visit.

1. Only cares about money 2. Will drop you if you are not financially awarding enough 3. You WILL wait 2-5 hours 4. Dr. Porter refused to treat me because I could not afford to get injections with him 5. Reduced my meds as punishment because I could not afford procedures with him

Dr. Porter has NO consideration for his patients' time. We have never been to his office with less that a 2.5 hour wait! In addition, getting someone on the phone is a miracle. Many, many times we have had to drive to his office just to make an appointment for later! We're done! (He's also quick to just hand out meds.)

Wait times are not acceptable. Patients are required to stand in pain and fight for chairs! Patients are sitting on the floor outside of his office.

I have been trying to get an appointment for two weeks and the staff either doesn't answer the phone or call you back.
