About the Doctor

Dr. Dale Stephen Porter is a native Northern New Yorker, born and raised on the southern outskirts of Watertown, the youngest of six children, on his family’s Porterdale Farms atop Dry Hill.  He was an Honors and Regents graduate of South Jefferson Central School and a standout scholar-athlete competing in three sports; football, wrestling, and track.  He was chosen as the first inductee into the South Jefferson Wrestling Hall of Fame and Henry Coffeen Memorial Award.

Dr. Porter went on to make records at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, graduating with Honors and was named to the All-Ivy Team in both wrestling and lightweight football for the Big Red during his time there.  He won the NCAA Division I Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association (E.I.W.A.) Championship at 150 lbs. in 1974 and is among an elite group of athletes inducted into the Cornell University Athletic Hall of Fame and became a member of Cornell's Wrestling Hall of Distinguished Alumni in 2010. 

A debilitating back injury actually led him to his career as a chiropractor.  After the discovery and astonishing success of chiropractic when conventional medical approaches did not help alleviate his back pain, he chose to make the profession his own.  A summa cum laude graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport, Iowa, Dr. Porter is continuously seeking educational opportunities learning advanced chiropractic techniques and researching the newest treatment methods available.  His quest to bring the most up-to-date health care to his patients is a reflection of the dedication he brings to his profession.

Currently Dr. Porter resides on Clear Lake in northern Jefferson County with his wife Beth.  Married since 1977, they have two grown children.  Son, Stephen a managing partner of Porterdale Farms, Inc. oversees the crops and machinery on the 5000 acres with 2000+ head of dairy cattle.  He and his wife Angela have four children and live just outside Adams Center.  Daughter, Dr. Kelly Porter Rabinowitz, a magna cum laude graduate of Parker College of Chiropractic, Dallas, TX, is practicing in partnership at Porter & Rabinowitz Chiropractic  ( www.wakechiro.com ) Wake Forest, North Carolina, with her husband Dr. Adam Rabinowitz and are the parents of Dr. Porter's youngest grandson.

"Traditional medicine took a wrong turn somewhere with pharmaceutical drugs and surgery as the first choice to correct illness. That's why I offer alternatives such as Nutrition Response Testing, Neurolink and Quintessential Applications; all advanced kinesiological techniques using muscle testing that let the body heal from within itself to restore health."

~Dr. Dale S. Porter

I offer safe, natural solutions for the entire family!
