Best Doctor in the Whole Widest World ;)

Dr. Meko, as she is lovingly referred to in our family, is a beautiful, confident, and an exceptionally knowledgeable Neurologist. I am incredibly nervous when it comes to doctors, but the second she strolled into the room, I felt like I was kickin' it with my BFF. If you struggle with a chronic illness, you know that personable doctors are difficult to find. Dr. Meko sat with us for two hours, answered every question in detail, and she even took the time to talk with my wife about going into pediatric neurology (she's premed). When she offered medication, I explained to her what has worked in the past and she listened and even filled out a schedule, to slowly increase the dosage. She set me up with neurosurgery and answered all my questions pertaining to the surgeon himself, so I would know what to expect when I met with him. Nothing, and I do mean absolutely nothing, went unanswered. What I really love about Dr. Meko is that she isn't afraid to be real...she comes in and she recognizes your worth, not just as her patient, but as a human being. I promise you that if you take the time to go see her, you will leave there feeling empowered to conquer your illness. Medicine is there to help us heal, to get us to a place where we can practice and live in a vibration of wellness, and Dr. Meko Porter is there to guide you into that vibration.

Discouraged

Young energetic confident, however do not question her " Book Smart" approach to your care. Her time and attention will subside if you question her.

Excellent neurologist

I've seen at least a half dozen neurologists over the last 15 years, all respected and recommended by peers. Dr. Porter is the only one that listened carefully and discussed issues at length and never in a hurry. She is more than capable in her field and was never dismissive and always proactive. Quite contrary to a previous obnoxious and hateful review, Dr. Porter is pleasant, caring, confident and knowledgeable. I was seen within a few minutes of my actual appointment time on every visit. My wife attended every appointment with me and also felt she Dr. Porter was, by far, the best we had been to. Lastly, her treatment plan improved my quality of life.

RUDE !!

This Dr has some sort of an inferiority complex and does not seem to be happy with the color of her skin, she is always angry and rude, and insulting to others. if she continues to do the same thing, we will call the hospital administration and notify the medical board, since she may need some sort of anger management classes, or be on medication.
