I first met Dr. Porter yesterday and I can tell you the man is an absolute pleasure to be around. He didn't promise me the Moon about correcting the pain I have but was very compassionate about my struggles with it. He took his time in reading my paperwork and asking a lot of questions. I follow up with him next week with a procedure and probably for the first time in my life I'm actually not worried about it.
