Ratings for Dr. Randall W. Porter
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.
Dr. Porter recently completed a surgery on my C2 Ganglion nerves to sever them after YEARS of severe headaches, especially on my left side. After exhausting pain management and doing a trial on the St. Jude neurostimulator, it was decided that direct surgery was most likely the best course of action. During surgery, Dr. Porter found the left Ganglion involved with the C1 & C2 vertebrae, clearly the root cause for years of suffering. He freed the Ganglion and completed the planned procedure. When I awoke, I could tell immediately that the pain I endured for YEARS was gone. I have pain from the surgical site, as it required cutting muscle and nerves to get to the problem area, but NOTHING like the pain I increasingly suffered over many years….. pain that no Rx or procedure was able to subdue. I feel like I awoke in a new body and am now ready to endure a few weeks of surgical site pain in order to get back to a full and happy…..pain free… life again. Thank you again, Dr. Porter…..you are the best!
Dr. Porter is an excellent doctor. He is very professional and reassuring. I had confidence that he knew what he was talking about. I had other opinions that were much more drastic than what Dr. Porter advised. His assistant Julie is wonderful. They both took time to explain every step. I highly recommend Dr. Porter and Barrow to everyone.
