Specialties

Dr. Boris J Porto has the following 2 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

NEVER AGAIN

I have NEVER been mistreated and disrespected by any doctor, until seeing Dr. Porto. He was verbally abusive, invaded my personal space, and screamed at me with false accusations so loudly that everyone in the entire office and lobby heard him. I felt threatened and had to escape as fast as I could. He unprofessionally uses his own experience with substance abuse to lash out on others. Avoid this man!!

Wonderful experience

Dr. Porto feels like family. His personality is a little bit quirky which I love. He is very transparent. He knows his field. He spent 20 minutes of his time while I was there calling different pharmacies to find which one had the best price for the medication I needed. He refused to prescribe Xanax to me, because of the side effects. (So he is not just a doc that writes RX's) He truly wants to the best quality of life for his patients. I am going on 3 years with Dr. Porto and do not intend to change.

Script writer

Dr Porto does not show any concern for his patients..he definitely likes to argue with them..thinks his book knowledge is always correct with every patient..in which everyone is different..an if it's not his idea ..then it's not right...all he was concerned with was writing the scripts ..didn't care whether you were having any other problems..didn't want to hear bout them..He is very rude an unprofessional

Great Dr.

His receptionists are not always the nicest, but he always takes the time to talk to me about what's going on in my life and listens to my concerns and feedback about medications.
