Dr. Pourtaheri was great throughout the pre-surgery and post surgery. He was concerned about my pain level and recovery.I would highly recommend he and his staff for making you feel comfortable and at ease. Also Bianca was always friendly and professional at every office visit. I rode my Harley Davidson Road king for over 200 miles at 2 1/2 months post surgery! Woo Hoo no pain!
