Dr. Anthony J. Porter’s driving principles are compassion, integrity, and excellence. He has a passion for innovation, progress and quality patient care. He earned a B.S in Engineering from the University of South Carolina and worked as a nuclear engineer for seven years prior to returning to school to study medicine, graduating from the Medical University of South Carolina in 2002, selected to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society, and working in Indiana and Kentucky prior to relocating to Brevard County in 2005.
He opened Porter Premiere Dermatology and Surgery Center on Nasa Boulevard in 2010. A second location in Suntree recently was opened with a focus on aesthetics, which offers the services of a Registered Nurse Practitioner and several estheticians.
At his full-service dermatology practice in Melbourne, Dr. Porter is one of the few dermatologists on the Space Coast to offer full body Phototherapy and Blu-light Treatments. And to address patient fears of a traditional biopsy, an innovative biopsy option by Dermtech is offered using a small adhesive patch that uses the precision of genomics to enhance accuracy of diagnosis and eliminate unnecessary surgery.
This location also offers Xtrac Excimer Laser for treatment of skin conditions such as Vitiligo, Psoriasis and Alopecia, as well as the latest technological non-invasive treatment equipment to treat basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, as well as the non-malignant tumor cells that cause keloids: the SRT Vision, which uses Ultrasound Guided Radiation. This is a great non-surgical, no down-time option for patients with skin cancers that are exploring non- surgical options and is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer and keloids. Most insurance plans cover this outpatient series of treatments, and patients can be referred by their doctor for this treatment.
Many physicians in the area refer to Dr. Porter for the aforementioned services as well as his vast knowledge in general dermatology. He treats all skin ailments, from acne to rare diseases such as leprosy and Mycosis Fungoides. Once you meet him, it is easy to see why he is highly sought after by physicians and patients, alike. His gentle demeanor and knowledge of skin conditions is incomparable.
