Dr. Portera is a world class surgeon, and despite being off-the-charts brilliant, he is yet humbly personable and relatable. One of the best physicians I have ever encountered. Alaska is indeed incredibly lucky to have Dr. Portera join us,
in Chickamauga, Georgia |
Very professional and excellent bedside manner. Confidence inspiring!
