He's such a great Orthopedic Dr... This was my second time seeing him in 2 years and my experience was just as great as the first. He's highly knowledgeable in sports medicine injuries, his bedside manner is amazing, he is always super informative regarding treatment and treatment options, and his staff are very friendly which is great because they are the faces you meet before meeting a great Dr. Thank you so much Dr Porter you have been kind and understanding in both my experiences with you.

Have been going to Dr. Porter for years and don't have a negative thing to say about him! He's incredibly smart, very thorough, and one of the most skilled surgeons you're going to find. He's done 2 shoulder labrum repairs for me over the years and will continue to go to Dr. Porter for any of my future ortho needs. Highly recommend!

Dr. Porter was very professional and friendly. The wait to see the Doctor was long but it was because he was delayed in a surgery. It was immediately announced to those in the waiting room that he was delayed and rescheduling options were offered. A call-back appointment was scheduled for just a few days later after imaging studies were done.

When I first walked into the office I was not impressed with how sterile it seemed and the receptionist did not seem friendly or talkative.....When I met Dr Porter, who was really having a busy day, he was friendly and made me feel at ease and I could tell that he was really listening to me and understood my reasons for being there. He answered all of my questions re: my shoulder and my "trigger finger" and treated both during that visit....he gave three alternatives and I feel quite confident in his background, training and professional expertise.....I was totally impressed with Dr Porter and will seek his advice if needed again....

I had a good experience initially and booked an appt for my daughter. I took her to the appt after taking off work and getting her out of school. Got there and he'd left for the afternoon. Couldn't see her. Couldn't give her an excuse for school and were completely unapologetic about it. Awful!

It appears that the area that Dr. Porter removed the fluid is becoming filled with fluid again. I very possibly will need to go thru the three gel shot routine. Dr. Porter was extremely professional and did what he felt was best.

Very nice doctor and seemed to be very knowledgeable about my symptoms although some basics were missed which caused some health issues upon my walking out of the office. I believe that they are over-booked and somewhat rushed to see everyone.

He is taking over my care plan from another physician so I wasn't sure how this would go but his office and medical assistant staff were excellent in transitioning me. He reviewed my X-rays, discussed options, suggested a new set of X-rays to confirm which option was best and scheduled me for surgery this week. Very efficient! Great communicator and really cared that he answered all of my questions.

I only had two brief appointments, but he was very kind, patient, and knowledgeable. He took the time to listen and answer my questions. I was referred to physical therapy. If that does not work and I decide to go the surgery route, I will definitely keep him as my orthopedic surgeon.

I had Dr. Porter examine a long time shoulder issue i had been having (over 5 years). My first visit Dr ordered an mri, gave me a shot and sent me on my way all while being a super guy. I followed up and he diagnosed me and recommended physical therapy. I went through pt with no noticeable reduction in pain or increase in activity. I followed up with Dr porter and advised him of this and he recommended a Distal Clavicle Excision, i agreed and allowed him to perform the surgery in 4/2015. I am very happy to say that I have fully recovered (12/2015), not just from the surgery, but i have all of my strength back. I went to dr porter because i was unable to lift weights without pain in my shoulder, I no longer have any issues with my shoulder and had no post surgery issues. I highly recommend Dr. Porter.

Dr. Porter was great. Explained exactly what he was doing and did his best not to move me around in positions he knew would be uncomfortable. He scheduled an MRI for an hour later and then a new appointment for the next day. I couldn't be happier with my choice of doctors.

I was a new patient that day. I thought Dr. Porter was great. You know you can tell right away if you are going to like them or not. And if they care or not. And right away I really liked him and could tell he cared. My sister went in with me and felt the same as I. She really liked him too. The staff was 50/50.

Both my sons have been under his care since 2011, my oldest tore meniscus and Dr. Porter operated on him with very minimum scar left on his knee. My youngest has been going to Dr. Porter for Osgood-Schratter disease and other sports injuries. We love Dr. Porter! His assistant Michelle is very professional too which makes our visit very easy and painless. We strongly recommend Dr. Porter!
