I was looking for a Dr. to care for my father, who before now had refused to go to a doctor. Dr Porrera is a Doctor for the people. She gives you her time and is very thorough in her exam. She let me stay in the room to hear what decisions she had made for my Dad. She charges very little for her services and helps you out in any way she can. By my standards and they are high because I've had some doozies, she is very good and extremely concerned with her patients.
Dr. Izquierdo-Porrero is very good. She is very kind with her patients and will answer all medical questions asked. She has a very friendly tone and cares about her patients overall wellbeing.
