After having severe back pain for over six months, Dr. Porter of this group was recommended to me. Luckily I was able to schedule an appointment within a short time. Dr. Porter was very patient and aswered all of my questions thoroughly. He did not push for surgery right away and instead tried more conservative measures such as physical therapy. I feel Dr. Porter has an excellent bedside manner and has stayed on top of all the latest procedures. If the need for surgery arises, he is the only doctor I would consider to perform my surgery.
