I was very impressed with Dr. Porter as was a friend who was with me. If he has the same health concern he would want Dr. Porter to be his doctor.
Chris Porter is the best doctor. He´s been through my journey for years. He´s been by my side the whole time. I´m very grateful for him.
Most of my time at Virginia Mason has been good and over time has got better.
Dr Porter and his team are wonderful
Dr. Porter & PA Y are awesome.
Because Dr. Porter got called into emergency surgery he felt bad and offered to call me back personally at a later date to complete my consultation, which he did. I thought this was very considerate. It saved me a trip back up there (I live 3 hr. away).
Dr. Porter & his staff have taken excellent care of my aunt since her cancer diagnosis in 2006. He has wonderful bedside manner & provides an exceptional caring attitude.
Dr. Porter took additional time to spend with my wife and me after the tests so that he could thoroughly answer our many questions.
Dr. Porter is the best!!! His PA´s are also very kind and helpful.
We absolutely love Dr. Porter and he is definately knowledgeable in his field, but he always seems so busy and he has to get through our appointments very fast because there are some many people waiting on him. Appointments are scheduled so "to the minute".
The entire urology team was a caring, committed & efficient unit lead by Dr. Porter. I´m glad I came to VA Mason for a 2nd opinion. I cannot thank them enough.
Dr. Porter made time in between surgeries to see me. That was greatly appreciated. He took the time he needed with me and was not too rushed.
They addressed urinary tract issues that have troubled me for years and had been ignored by previous urologists
Always positive. Would recommend to anyone in a similar situation.
All items above would have been rated "very good" if applied to previous visits as well.
Dr. Porter & his staff discussed my condition in detail. They presented all options & the pros & cons of the results. They left us confident & informed to make our decision.
Dr. Porter and his staff are amazing, and I recommend to many men!!
The doctor & PA gave me the best information I have had to date. I liked them both very much.
Excellent doctor - the best service ever.
Dr. Porter is a wonderful physician. From my initial diagnosis of prostate cancer, through surgery, and into after care, he has been easy to talk with and responsive to any and all my questions. His knowledge and ability to relate it, has given me confidence in both his abilities and the decisions that we have made concerning treatment! He not only was kind and engaging to me in this process, but to my wife as well. We are so grateful for Dr. Porter and would highly recommend him to anyone who has need of a Urologist!
DR. PORTER is the best.
Provider seems biased in favor of surgery as primary or best option.
