After going to doctors and emergency rooms for about 5 months with bad hip pain and them telling me it was all related to my bad discs, Dr. Porwal diagnosed the problem almost immediately as being bursitis, gave me injections and within 3-5 days, good as new. Simply amazing how he knew immediately what the cause was and after about 1 1/2 months, no pain. He explained everything to me and constantly asked questions which is very welcome as a patient.

Dr Porwal has always been kind and is one of the most caring Dr's I've ever been to. He actually takes the time to listen to what is bothering me. He also worked together with me to find the best combination of medications to manage my pain. He is not one of those quack doctors that bag you in and out in 5 minutes. Each time I go there I get a thorough exam to make sure nothing has changed medically.

My experience with Dr. Porwal was nothing less than amazing! His staff was so friendly and kind and were willing to help me in any way they possibly could. He is a very friendly and nice man and I have been a patient of his for many years now. I have never been disappointed leaving Dr. Porwal's office and have always been treated very well as a patient by the doctor and his staff.

Dr. Porwal was not aware of my medical history which was provided by the nursing home I was in. He told me I would be better off if I did not get a hip replacement even though I have severe arthritis and do not have a hip joint or a hip socket. He also told me that the draining from my surgical wounds was because I am fat, and not because of surgery. This doctor was very opinionated but he was grossly misinformed about my condition. I would not recommend him under any circumstances. Stay away!
