Dr. Gilbert Porter
Dr. Gilbert Porter is a psychiatrist based in Brooklyn. Having seen what the Patch did to the rest of his family, he prefers to avoid the use of drugs in his own practice, leaning instead on cognitive-behavioral therapy. He retained Ana Montez as his receptionist until his retirement, and was subsequently rebuffed when he proposed marriage.
He was instrumental in the prosecution of Jason Lane, since his testimony bolstered the credibility of one of the Phoenix Society’s central witnesses, Jude Cole.
