Dr. Porreco - Miracle Doctor

I cannot say enough praise for Dr. Porreco and his team. I am the grandmother of twins that would not be alive today if it wasn't for him. My daughter went into early labor - 23 weeks, she was help flighted from Billings to Denver with the hopes that he could possibly save one twin. She was dilated to 8 and Lincoln was making his way and labor couldn't be stopped. Dr. Porreco delivered Lincoln and he performed a cerclage keeping Eleanor in another 3 weeks when she was delivered. Twins delivered three weeks apart, 23 and 26 weeks. AND BOTH babies are doing great, they are 18 months old. We owe everything to this man and his medical team; and also to the doctor in Billings who knew if anyone could save their lives it was him.

Five Stars

Dr Porreco is an amazing doctor. Professional, kind, direct. I had a high risk pregnancy that most MFM's would not have given a chance for my little boy to survive. DrPorreco gave him every possible chance. He and his partners were there every day monitoring my baby while keeping us informed of our options. He included my husband and I in the plan of care. We had to deliver at 31 weeks and my son survived. I'm a labor and delivery nurse and I have to say he is the best I've ever met.
