Do not waste your time with this doctor. He was my 2nd opinion for my daughter's skin condition. Two weeks after the appointment I called to ask about the treatment plan because the issue has not gone away completely; recurring. He had no response for me. He asked me to bring her back in to look at it, even though he had already seen it. If there are not any other treatment options, why would I bring her in for him to look at it again, especially when he already said there were not any tests to run. Very disappointed with service and his bedside manner. My daughter doesn't even want to go back to see him!!!

Dr. Porres is fantastic. He's very friendly and has great bedside manner. He also emphasizes educating his patients instead of just looking and prescribing something which I always appreciate. The office staff is also very friendly. I'll definitely be coming back here from now on.

Dr. Porres is an excellent doctor. He was very patient and meticulous in listening to my concerns, and suggested many different forms of treatment and applications that wouldn't inhibit my day to day activities. The only downside to the visit was the long waiting period. Other then that, he's an awesome professional!

He was very calm and positive. He was attentive and spoke to me like a person, not a number; made some small jokes to put me at ease but was very professional. I needed a procedure that I believe many people would be nervous about and he was quick and gentle and explained each step. Before I knew it he was done with the part that made me anxious and thats a good doc in my book.

Dr. Porres really focuses on each patient, he doesn't feel distracted or rushed when he's working with you and makes you feel comfortable talking to him about skin issues. Between that and his ability to handle minor skin issues right there in the office, quickly and rather painlessly, he's been my favorite dermatologist so far. :)

Years ago, I saw a dermatologist who was great, he took the time to discuss each issue and was never rushed. I moved and have since went to other dermatologist, but none were the same. Every one of them was a cattle call, they pushed you in and out the door asap, you only got a few minutes with the doctor and spent most of it with their assistant. I never lasted at any of those dermatologists. That was until I met Dr. Porres. I was seen quickly, it seems like it is just him and the receptionist. Dr. Porres saw me and spent almost an hour discussing my issue and looking me over, he was extraordinarily friendly, educational, and money seemed to be the last thing he was worried about. I would definitely recommend him, especially for those who are sick of the cattle call. He has somewhat of an old school feel to him and his office matches it, but don't let the older looking equipment and sparse waiting room fool you, he's top notch.

The doctor himself was great, and super informative. It was the office staff there that was terrible. Both of the receptionists that were there were SO rude. The weather was very bad this morning, so I was running about 5 minutes behind. My appointment was at 11:30, so I called around 11:15 to tell them that there was an accident on the highway and I was running a little bit behind. The receptionist that I spoke to on the phone didn't know who I was or why I was calling, she didn't have any record that I made an appointment. Finally she finds me and says that I can reschedule because they go to lunch at 11:30 and if I'm late no one will be there. I said I would only be 5 minutes late and she said that if I was any more than 5 minutes late no one would be there. Finally I get there at 11:35 and they had such an attitude. It's a Saturday and I was the only patient there, and they had me wait until noon to go in to see the doctor. When I inquired, she snapped at me and said that I was 30 minutes late and that it was my fault. Not sure if I'll be going back based on that.

Excellent, as usual. Discussed a couple of problems, he listened to my concerns, then offered some courses of action while telling the pros and cons of each. I chose one, that would solve my dermatology problems.

Made the appointment because of some specific skin issues, plus wanted an annual skin check. Due to work suddenly getting very busy the last two weeks, I had to change this appointment three times before I could finally make it in, but everyone was quite accommodating about that. Received recommendations for the two skin issues I have, and what I particularly liked was rather than try to sell me some expensive skin cream that may be associated with a dermatologists office, Dr. Porres gave me a prescription for one problem (called it in to the pharmacy I use, so that was very efficient), and for the other simply said to use a hydrocortisone cream two or three times a day...and noted that the 'least expensive brand would be fine, as they are all the same". He also found one suspicious spot, gave me specific instructions on a topical to use on it, and told me that if I didn't see some improvement in two weeks, to be sure to come back in. Plus he asked if I checked the bottom of my feet during a self skin check. I do not...had never thought of it. so he said to be sure to do it, as we don't want any surprises to show up.
