Dr. Pourtaheri has always been very straight forward and blunt with me, as I asked him to be upon my first appointment with him. He's very good at what he does and after a few years of fighting and making sure all of our boxes were checked and our list was complete, I'm finally getting the shoulder repair surgery needed to help me get my life back again.
