Not bloody likely, mate. Lots of visits and lots of copays. Things keep getting worse. He's in the dark about my condition, so he's throwing the kitchen sink at it. BTW, the sink didn't work. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Dr. Porotov is quite possibly the best doctor I've ever seen. He is not only extremely knowledgeable, but also an excellent communicator. Upon examination, he is both a very thorough listener and asks all the right questions to assess and diagnose. And where some neurologists can be intimidating, he is very down to earth and friendly.
