Dr Porter is an honest broker. Speaks directly, asks great questions, is professional and knowledgable about his specialty. I felt comfortable telling him my issues and concerns. I liked him! Perhaps more importantly, I trusted him and what he had to say.

I've been dealing with this urinary trigger urges since I was a teenager and now its adjuncts to getting older and age related bladder issues Of stress and urge incontinence, over the years I've had pelvic floor PT and spent Ridiculous amount of time and money with little to no improvement. Dr. Porter listened to me. Dr. Porter did not make me feel like I was a complete idiot for having this since I was a teenager. He told me that I was normal, and it happens. It was the first time ever I've had a doctor understand what I was going through. In my 50 years of life, this was by far the best doctors appointment I've ever had. I felt validated, respected, and I believe together, finally, I may see relief. Thank you Dr Porter.

Dr. Porter is a very good physician. I am 72 and get very confused and can not think when I see most doctors. I forget what I am talking about in midstream....I really do. Dr. Porter tries his best to follow me, and asks lots of questions to understand me. He is really good at listening and telling me in lay person terms, options
