Did not seem to be involved to answer questions on my son's neck pain. Seemed disinterested is another way of putting it. Son was injured at age 5 from a unsupervised bad 'throw' from an older child and now had neck issues.
in haleiwa,, HI |
I originally began going to Dr. Portner about my back issues. However he has helped me with so much more. He introduced me to a health plan that will help my back pain more than anything. Since taking on his health program recommended to me I have lost 50lbs and counting. I am over the moon with my results with my back pain lessened and my new found quality of health.
