Absolutely appreciate the care provided by Dr Porter and his staff. Dr Porter has been my Oncologist for 5yrs and has always proven to have my well-being at the forefront. He always reviews test results and diagnostics with me, as well as inquires about my overall day-to-day feelings & outlook. He always asks for my input & together we project a care plan based on latest results. I believe I am being provided the best possible oncology care available anywhere in the nation.
