Dr. Carlos Porter, MD's Expert Contributions
  • Weight loss not working?

    Please see your physician, have labs done and ensure it is not something metabolic that is hindering your goals. READ MORE

  • Cuts and scrapes?

    You should be adequately covered as you should have been given a tetanus update around age 14-16. If you truly had a another one 3 years ago you should be more than adequately covered. Please discuss with you primary care physician. READ MORE

  • How can I improve my energy?

    See your physician and have an evaluation with lab work. Look at thyroid, kidney function in particular. Start sleeping well 7-8 hours a night and begin a regular exercise program. READ MORE

  • Are Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Tests accurate?

    Please look for the US government approval. READ MORE

  • Wound doesn't heal?

    Please have your primary care provider evaluate it. READ MORE

  • Covid concerns?

    Given your symptoms, you have COVID regardless of testing results. Please schedule a visit with your primary care physician as soon as possible. If symptoms worsen, seek immediate care. READ MORE

  • How do I know my thrush is healed?

    Mycelex crouches work very well, 5 x a day for 7 days. The wafers are easy to use. More likely than not it is resolved as it was the result of the inhaled steroid component of the inhaler. This was actually an excellent approach to assist during a COVID infection. READ MORE

  • Hole in stomach after missed shot of meth?

    Seek emergency Medical attention!!! READ MORE

  • Should I see a dr? Or what is going on?

    You should see your primary care physician. READ MORE

  • Drug screen?

    You are self dosing and attempting to direct your prescription of a narcotic pain medication WITHOUT a medical license, trying to "game" the system! No physician should EVER prescribe this medication or any controlled medications to you ever again. READ MORE

  • My Dr prescribed Triamcinolone to put on the inside of my mouth?

    You should follow your physician's recommendations. If you do not feel comfortable with your physician, you should find one you do. READ MORE

    Yes. Please keep your followup with your physician to ensure the treatment plan is working. READ MORE

  • What are the long term side effects of taking one Benadryl tablet every morning?

    Probably not an issue. More likely than not you will develop a resistance and it simply will stop working. Please discuss options with you physician. READ MORE

  • Diabetes?

    Yes, I agree, you should see your physician as soon as possible. Hopefully you are still a candidate for oral medications. However your situation brings up a very important point, not just for you but for everyone. Please review and select your insurance very carefully, typically people choose the least expensive and later blame their physician and/or expect their physician to supplement the patients insurance costs. The supplementation is typically in extra payroll and tax costs to the physician, costs that insurance for not cover. Given your situation, exercise, diet and more likely than not significant weight loss will markedly help your situation. READ MORE

  • Is it gas or appendicitis?

    Given your age, symptoms the chances are high within the first 24 hours. If you clinically improve it could have been gas but also a high possibility of a fecolith (hardened piece of feces n the intestine), doubtful for diverticulitis. Please arrange an appointment with your primary care physician for a proper physical examination. Possibly a CT scan if clinically warranted. As always, if you rapidly worsen please seek emergency care. In good health. READ MORE

  • Does pneumonia make your back hurt?

    Pneumonia can certainly make your back hurt. Aside from potential muscle strain from coughing, there could be pleuritic pain (lung lining). Please keep close followup with your treating physician. Lastly, consider a follow up X-ray to document resolution of the infection. READ MORE

  • SNRI and Weight Loss?

    Yes you can. Please keep close followup with your Physican to not only monitor you but keep you accountable to your personal goals. READ MORE

  • What is causing me to feel ill?

    You definitely need a medical evaluation by your Physican. Hopefully this could be something simple as possibly a mild allergy. However an evaluation is warranted. READ MORE

  • What are some unexpected sources of caffeine?

    Please ask for a repeat test. Obviously a strict diet/food journal over a 2 week period will be helpful. If this all leads to your current starting point one should look elsewhere as the caffeine issue is probably less significant than initially thought. READ MORE

    I had stage 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma surgery on 5/8/18. On 5/7//18, I had to get approval for the surgery from my primary, Dr Carlos Porter. I went to his office. I had not met him before. His assistant does all the vitals and an EKG. Nice young woman and we have a laugh or two. Dr Porter comes in and asks “How are things going? *Today’s been kind of rough.*Why? (I thought that was a stupid question.) I tell him I’ve been frustrated by the process. No one ever went through what I should expect, like You’ve Got Cancer 101. The conversation goes in a downward spiral until my voice has raised. I’m not yelling. My voice is raised because he is trying to upset me and he’s succeeding. He was belligerent from the start. He wasn’t listening to me. He was trying to find ways to get under my skin. All of a sudden, he gets up from his chair, says he doesn’t have to put up with this, orders me out, and threatens to call the police. Did anyone miss that part? Threatened to call the police. I have to admit, I went into raging bitch mode because I couldn’t believe what has transpired and his attitude. I open the door to the waiting room and tell my husband that I’m being kicked out, refused my surgery authorization, (which I find out he cannot do) and am threatened with calling the police. I return to the inside as my husband joins me and ask if the police have been called, yet. If not, he better f-ing call them because I’m not leaving until I talk to them. My husband tries to talk to him and is told he must leave because he’s threatening. He hasn’t even lifted a finger. I call my surgeon, Dr Kolluri, who I recommend highly, and tell her what’s going on. She says she’d do the same thing I did. Before she falls off her chair, she says she’ll take care of this. The police come and were terrific. Got more understanding from them. In fact, the female officer told the dickhead doc that this was a very unfortunate incident that didn’t have to happen. We received a warning to not trespass. Not to worry. I wouldn’t step two miles near his office. I would like his license revoked. He is totally unprofessional, belligerent, and arrogant. No one should have to deal with this kind of doctor. BTW, I’m 70 years old and good natured. However, I can go from 0 to 60 in a New York minute when I’m being treated poorly. And, I was treated beyond poorly.
