Ratings for Dr. Randall W. Porter
Dr. Porter took time to answer all my questions in depth regarding my diagnosis, surgery and post surgery. Julie Supple, with Dr. Porter's staff is also very thorough and knowledgeable. I feel fortunate to have had Dr. Porter and his team involved in all parts of the surgical process!
Dr. Porter and his staff are amazing! I have had excruciating back pain for years but God used Dr. Porter's surgical skill to heal me. Dr. Porter even prayed over me before the surgery. Dr. Porter is compassionate, skilled, and you can see he really cares about his patients. I had complicated back issues including lumbar spinal stenosis, herniated lumbosacral discs, lumbosacral spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis and lumbar disc herniation.!! I am 2 months out from surgery in mid October and I am almost completely pain free. I am walking 1-2 miles daily and I have more energy than I have had for a long time now. Pain is debilitating and takes the energy right out of you but now I celebrate my health. Thank you, Dr. Porter!!!
I had seen five doctors before meeting Dr. Porter. He immediately recognized my rare, but serious (brain) condition and knew exactly how to deal with it. My operation was 100% successful, and I have my life back. We don't know whether finding Dr. Porter or the operation itself was the bigger miracle.
Always a great experience going to Barrow to see Dr. Porter. His staff is excellent and I have never had any issue with anyone being rude or unkind. They are a very busy office so it can sometimes take a long time to see the doctor, but it is worth it to have a compassionate surgeon looking at you.
Staff answering phones for Dr. Porter are very rude (Andrew) and have the patients doing the calling back and forth to the insurance company and PCP office. Last I checked I was not on payroll. He is the only person there that belittles me. I have been a patient there for about 5 years and feel it's time to move on.
I would like to say much better I am, but it is difficult because the improvement is almost indescribable. Dr. Porter is a wonderful Doctor and between he and God my life is so much more enjoyable without the constant pain and all that went with it. Dr. Porter cured my spinal stenosis and all of the terrible symptoms associated with that. He also fused L4-L5 and used minimal hardware. I can now stand and walk all day if I choose with no limitations. Dr. Randall & his staff are wonderful and I am so thankful God led me to them.
Dr. Porter isan excellent surgeon. WAtchison out for his back office staff. If you are scheduled for surgery, they will call you two weeks in advance and tell you that you cannot have surgery, unless an outstanding bill is paid. Plus, quote a ridiculous amount that the insurance company states is a false amount. If a previous surgery was completed, their comment would be, "You are lucky, Dr. Porter did the first surgery, when there''s an outstanding balance". Office staff is very intimidating when trying to collect, you would think they were working for a Collections Department.
