    Dr. Porter is the epitome of a family practice physician. If I could clone him and substitute him for all my other MD's, I would do it.

    Dr Porter has an excellent bedside manner and always listens to your concerns and addresses them. if any of your concerns are an issue then he orders tests or whatever may be necessary to help try to get to the bottom of the issue. I have been seeing him for 25 years and he has always been there for me. Even if it's after hours.

    Dr. Porter has an easy way about him. He is easy to talk to and listens to what you have to say. I think he is an excellent Doctor, and I enjoy being able to see him. He is very up to date on things pertaining to my health, and is very pleasant to be around.
