Dr. Portwood has been my rehab doctor for over 25 years. She is one of the area's doctors who are exceptionally knowledgeable about Polio and Post-Polio Syndrome (PPS). She also took care of my mother after she suffered severe head trauma in an auto accident. Her specialty is Physical (or Rehabilitation) Medicine. She is a warm, generous doctor who listens to her patients and believes that. if they pay attention to their own bodies messages and communicate them to their doctor, they will better assist in their own health care and well-being.The only real drawback to having Dr. Portwood as your doctor is tat she only has office hours three days a week, as she is also director of Mercy Rehab Center.
Pros: Knowledge and caring
Cons: P:arking and appointment wait
